Watch Description

What makes the Lancaster 010 unique: As the market demand for smaller watches increased in the early 1920s Hamilton Watch Co was there to fulfill the consumer's needs, and this 12-size movement is an extraordinary example of just that. The dial shines brilliantly against our bronze case allowing the hands to pop out at you. The merlot strap adds a subtle hint of color and grace to this watch that will captivate any onlooker. If you are looking for a watch that tells a story, reflects history, and will get people talking you have come to the right place.

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.
