Watch Description

What makes the Lancaster 105 unique: Today we happily present this beautiful timepiece from the Hamilton Watch Company from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, our Lancaster 105. Immediately, when we saw this dial, we knew that this watch would have that vintage high-class look that sets it apart. Gold-colored numerals, paired with gold-plated hands and crown, sit perfectly in this soft sandblasted titanium case. Our oxblood cordovan strap brings just the right amount of color to top it off, with gold-plated hardware throughout. The inside of this watch begs to be shown off, with all of the wonderful copper accents all throughout that stand out against this gorgeous build plate. Carefully crafted Geneva lines contrast the radial pattern of the mainspring barrel and crown wheel designs. Gold-plated gears and a brass balance wheel add to the visual display of precious metals that make this watch truly stand out. Originally produced in 1936, the same year that Jesse Owens won four gold medals at the Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany, defying the Germans and becoming a true American hero.

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.
