Watch Description

What makes the Lancaster 029 unique: 43mm is the smallest size of pocket watch conversion that we can make, and we love how this one turned out! The Lancaster 029 is crafted from a 10-size Hamilton pocket watch enclosed in our machined stainless steel case and paired with a stitched black leather strap. The clean lines of the dial and gold hour indices and hands give this watch a classic feel that complements casual and dressy wear alike.  

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.
