Watch Description

What makes the Lancaster 110 unique: We are excited to bring you this beautiful timepiece from the Hamilton Watch Company, our Lancaster 110. We are always amazed by how unique and special each and every one of these antique watches are and how much they vary between the different models. We love the intricate design work that has been carefully machined into the face of this dial, with this one-of-a-kind look in the center. A nice amount of age brings character to the outer edge of this watch face, while these dark blue open-kite hands contrast nicely. We set the watch in our sandblasted titanium case, with a nickel-plated crown and black band. As we turn this watch over to reveal the movement within, we are immediately drawn to the Geneva lines that are the focal point of craftsmanship all throughout the build plates. The spiral patterns on the mainspring wheel and crown wheel give a sense of motion as they slowly turn round and round. Gold-plated gears beneath give a nice visual appeal, and play well with the accents of 17 screw-set jewels. Stainless steel hardware against the nickel-plated build plate ties everything together and makes for a very clean and classic look. This watch was originally manufactured by the Hamilton Watch Company in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in 1923. Yankee Stadium opens its doors for the first time in April of this same year, in The Bronx, as the official home of the New York Yankees.

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.
