Watch Description

What makes the Landcaster 012 unique: Hamilton Watch Co was known for high-end movements, so much so that they earned an Army-Navy "E" Award for excellence in manufacturing. The Lancaster 012 maintains this standard of craftsmanship today, all in a modern case. We opted for a clean and simple look for this watch and matched the black case with a black leather strap that pairs with any style. The crown, set to match the dial, makes this watch an amazing conversation piece.

Movement Manufacturer Information

The movement inside of this watch was made by Hamilton Watch Company. We call this model "The Lancaster" because the company was located in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Hamilton is named after famous Pennsylvanian Alexander Hamilton and is the result of multiple re-organizations of attempted watch companies in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Founded in 1892, Hamilton had a reputation for superior quality and maintained half of the railroad watch market share during some of the most prolific years of American railroad history. During World War II, Hamilton was integral to the production of accurate timepieces for the Military. Deemed "the watch that won the war," the company established an employee-run newsletter so that employees turned soldiers could keep up with life at the factory. While the original factory still stands as luxury apartments, the company stopped producing watches in the US in 1969. Hamilton now produces watches in Switzerland and is owned by the Swatch Group.
