Watch Description

What makes the Lancaster 035 unique: Hamilton Watch Company produced some incredible, highly decorated dials in its heyday of American manufacturing, but this one may be one of the most stunning we've seen! Originally created in 1933, this glimmering silver dial is shot through with a dramatic Art Deco sunburst design and surrounded by raised gold numerals and a dotted minute track. This dial is mesmerizing in its ability to catch and change colors with the light, and its movement is just as stunning. Boasting 23 jewels with gold settings, this is one of the highest-quality pocket watches out there. We've completed this conversion with our machined stainless steel case and crown and matched the blued steel spear hands with a blue leather strap. This one is not to be missed!

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.
