Watch Description

What makes the Lancaster 042 unique: The Lancaster 042 perfectly blends the timeless artistry of the twentieth century with the sleek modernity of the present. A 10-size Hamilton pocket watch, originally produced in 1937, has been encased in our 43mm two-toned case with a stainless steel body and crown and bronze bezel. Reflective gold Art Nouveau numerals and matching dauphine hands punctuate a cream-colored dial, while gold-plated gears accent the 17-jewel movement. We've paired this piece with a stitched oxblood cordovan leather strap to complete the feel of distinguished elegance.

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.
