Watch Description

What makes the Lancaster 106 unique: Today we bring you our incredible Lancaster 106, a stunning timepiece from the Hamilton Watch Company of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The face of this watch immediately draws you in, with the intricate designs that have been carefully machined into the double-sunk dial. The numerals stand out from the soft tones of the dial, with their unique curvature and shape that plays well with the design. Our gold-plated crown and hardware complement the dial wonderfully, while our soft sandblasted titanium case lets the rest of the details stand out on their own. Our merlot strap and these burgundy steel hands tie everything together nicely, giving this watch a truly classic look and feel. The 912 movement from Hamilton that is powering this watch will have you showing off the underside of this watch frequently, making this watch a true conversation starter. The Geneva lines throughout the build plates are a signature look for the Hamilton watches we find from this era, contrasted with the spiral patterns that we find on the mainspring and crown wheels. Adorned with 17 beautiful jewels throughout, as well as gold-plated gears beneath. Stainless steel hardware all across the build plates gives it a very cohesive and clean look. This watch was originally produced in 1924 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. This same year, in New York City, Macy’s holds its very first Thanksgiving Day Parade. The parade was used to announce the opening of its flagship store on 34th street as well as promote holiday purchases for that season. The store was at that time the world’s largest retail store, with over 1 million square feet of space.

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.
