Watch Description

What makes the Lancaster 114 unique: Today we bring you this gorgeous watch from the Hamilton Watch Company, our very own Lancaster 114. The soft feel of the case is the first thing that draws us in, taking time to focus on the finer details of this wonderfully aged dial. We love the look of these gold-colored numerals that have worn down slightly with age and decided to pair our gold-plated crown and hardware to bring attention to them. These spade hands are absolutely stunning and contrast the soft look of the dial nicely. The movement inside of this watch is one of our favorites to work with, the 912 grade from Hamilton. These distinctive Geneva lines that have been machined across the different build plates are something we really enjoy about these movements, as well as the spiral patterns on the mainspring barrel and crown wheel. 17 screw-set jewels and stainless steel hardware throughout add to the visual appeal of the beautiful watch. Originally produced in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in 1924, this watch proves itself time and time again over the course of its life and continues to impress us to this day. The Hamilton Watch Company was named after James Hamilton who was the son of Andrew Hamilton. Hamilton was a Scottish-born attorney who had originally laid out and founded Lancaster County. He was also the original owner of the property that the company owned and operated on.

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.
