Watch Description

What makes the Lancaster 102 unique: Today we bring you this great timepiece from the Hamilton Watch Company, the Lancaster 102. This watch draws you in with the subtleties of the aged dial, with different layers of wear and tear showing the age of this watch. These bright blue hands are incredibly crisp and clean, contrasting nicely from the face. Our soft finish on the sandblasted titanium case does a nice job not to bring too much attention, while this lovely copper crown completes the whole ensemble. This beautiful movement has everything we expect from a high-quality Hamilton watch, with gold inlaid text as well as gears beneath. The intricately machined Geneva lines across this large build plate keep your eye moving all around to explore the fine details. Topped off with 19 screw-set jewels to keep everything moving nicely, attached with stainless steel hardware. This watch was originally produced by the Hamilton Watch Company in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in 1929. October 24th 1929, became known as "Black Thursday" and the start of the stock market crash after the Dow Jones fell 12.8%.

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.
