Watch Description

What makes the Lancaster 107 unique: Today we happily present this incredibly unique timepiece from the Hamilton Watch Company, our Lancaster 107. We are immediately drawn in by the character that is displayed on this very aged dial. We love to imagine what might have contributed to the discoloration on the face over the years. This dial works so well with the tone of the strap and copper crown! These bold numerals and dark hands contrast perfectly and stand out against our custom machined titanium case. We always enjoy the design and reliability of these fantastic Hamilton 912 movements, and this one is no exception. Very clean lines all across the bridge plate stand out from the gold-plated gears and spiral patterns on the crown and mainspring wheels. Adorned by 17 amazing jewels, and topped off with stainless steel hardware all throughout, this watch was originally manufactured in 1935 by the Hamilton Watch Company in Lancaster Pennsylvania. In this same year, Amelia Earhart became the first person to fly solo from Hawaii to California.

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.
