Watch Description

What makes the Lancaster 111 unique: Today we are happy to feature this absolutely stunning watch from the Hamilton Watch Company, our Lancaster 111. We love how this double-sunk dial with intricate floral patterns works well inside this custom iridescent case for the perfect design combination. The soft tones of the dial are accented nicely by the case and capped off with our nickel-plated crown and black strap. This watch is powered by one of our favorite movements to work with, Hamilton’s 912-grade piece that proves itself reliable time and time again. Carefully machined Geneva lines throughout the build plates bring a cohesive look and feel to this watch, while the gold-plated gears beneath act as visual accents to show off the inner workings. Decorated with 17 screw-set jewels that help everything turn perfectly, held in with stainless steel hardware that carries throughout the entire watch. Originally manufactured in 1924 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, the first year that Hamilton produced over 2,000,000 watches. The production of this particular grade and design was around 260,000 watches made that year. Hamilton was growing rapidly and pricing their watches as the high-end alternative to the other brands of the time. Still proving their worth all these years later, we absolutely love the quality and reliability of these watches.

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.
