Watch Description

What makes the Lancaster 101 unique: We are ecstatic to release this spectacular watch from Hamilton Watch Company, Lancaster 101, for our Watch of the Day. The subtle center of this dial surrounded by the yellow tint of time balances magnificently with our sandblasted titanium case and knurled gold crown. We love the small minute indicator accents that surround the outer edges of the face. A simple black strap and gold-plated hardware add to the visual appeal and give this watch a nice classic look. The inside of this watch is an amazing 912 movement from the Hamilton Watch Company. Carefully decorated with these intricate Geneva lines all across the build plate, with gold-plated gears showing through beneath. Featuring 17 beautiful screw-set jewels to keep the gears spinning nicely, with stainless steel hardware throughout. This watch was originally manufactured by the Hamilton Watch Company in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in 1935. February 6th of 1935, the "Monopoly" board game hit the store shelves for the very first time.

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.
