International Travelers Are Getting Their Kicks at Sangamon Watches on Historic Illinois Route 66

Deep in the heart of Springfield, Illinois, sits one of Route 66’s most sought-after local attractions. Sangamon Watches is located in downtown Springfield on 6th street, across from City’s Visitors Center, it is the only locally created and owned watch brand on Route 66. This phenomenal wristwatch shop opened its downtown location in October 2021. Since its opening, Sangamon Watches has found tremendous business success and met countless friendly faces. People from all over the world have stopped to visit this fantastic shop, reveling at their beautiful watches, friendly staff, and historical residence. Travelers along Route 66 have made it essential to stop at Sangamon Watches and have written blogs and filmed YouTube videos to showcase their shop. Local TV and radio media has helped expose the world to this shop’s unique and authentic products and services.

Brian Su and Tyler Mckay, the founders of Sangamon Watches, had the vision to preserve the tradition and history of the wristwatch’s design while also embracing modern technology. Brian moved to America in the 1980s, coming from a background in international business. Tyler transitioned from his farming background into business and entrepreneurship, studying at the Gies College of Business at the University of Illinois. American history was a common interest for the two, which birthed their idea to open their historical shop. Brian and Tyler wanted to create more than just a luxury product. Their love of local and national history can be seen and felt throughout each watch and throughout every layer of their business.

In 2020, while most of the world shut down and business halted, Sangamon Watches overcame these challenges and released three watch collections. Since then, the company has also launched a few other collections. Sangamon Watches’ Mother Road Collection of watches was coined from the shop’s home alongside Route 66. The Mother Road Collection are high-quality, well-made wrist watches with a modern yet classic sports look. You’ll find a color and style that meets your needs throughout the collection. These watches have been sought after by many travelers looking to add a new piece to their collection. These watches are also an excellent souvenir for anyone new to wearing watches and wanting to start with a first-rate piece.

Brian and Tyler have dedicated their business to the history of this country. They value high-quality, intentionally made products with superior craftsmanship. Through their hard work and vision, they successfully overcame this pandemic and launched Sangamon Watches into reality. They’ve proven that even in today’s modern society of fast-made products, superior artistry still reigns supreme. Their mortar and brick shop, located at 206 South 6th Street in downtown Springfield has become a hot spot for Route 66 travelers from across the globe. They’ve met the smiling faces of travelers from Russia, Ireland, the UK, Spain, Canada, China and Japan.

Sangamon Watches still honors local businesses and values investing their success back into their community. Since being in business, they’ve donated to over fifteen local charities and community events including the International Route 66 Mother Road Festival.
