Watch Description

What makes the Lancaster 022 unique: Hamilton Watch Company made watches of all kinds. From low-grade 15-jewel movements to top end 23-jewels, and everything in between. This watch is an example of that broad spectrum. This 17-jewel movement is set in a modern case and has been revamped and rebuilt to keep time for another 96 years. This 45mm watch sits on the wrist perfectly and the bronze crown complements the coined edge bezel. Delicate hands placed over the parchment-colored dial bring this watch home.

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.
