Watch Description

What makes the Lancaster 190 unique: Today we bring you this incredible timepiece originally produced by the Hamilton Watch Company, our Lancaster 190. The timeless design of this watch is sure to turn heads. The titanium DLC case gives this watch a sleek, modern feel, while the gold-plated crown and hardware add a touch of sophistication. The black leather strap is both comfortable and stylish, pairing well with the dark case finish. We love the simplicity of this dial which has a very soft off-white tone and incredibly unique gold-colored numerals. The craftsmanship of this watch is truly remarkable as you can see as you turn it over to view the movement within. Every detail has been carefully considered, from the intricate engraving on the build plates to the precise movement of the gears. This is a watch that is sure to be treasured for years to come. It is a reminder of the past, and a promise of a bright future.

This watch was manufactured in 1931 by the Hamilton Watch Company in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. In 1931, the Empire State Building was completed in New York City. The iconic structure stands 102 stories tall and was the tallest building in the world at the time of its completion. It was designed by architects William F. Lamb and Shreve, Lamb & Harmon, and was built in just over a year. The Empire State Building was a symbol of modernity and progress, and it remains a popular tourist destination today. The building has been featured in numerous movies and has become a part of the American cultural landscape.

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.
