Watch Description

What makes the Lancaster 115 unique: Today we are happy to present this incredibly unique timepiece from the Hamilton Watch Company, our Lancaster 115. We decided that our gunmetal titanium case was the perfect way to accent the different grey tones of the dial and let the gold-colored numerals stand out at the same time. Accentuated by our gold-plated crown and hardware, we really love the combination of new and old that brings this antique watch into the modern era. The movement inside this watch is none other than the 912 from Hamilton, one of our favorite watches to work with and visually stunning as well. We love the unique shape of the different build plates that are unique to Hamilton, as well as these bold Geneva lines all throughout that line up perfectly. 17 screw-set jewels with raised brass settings keep everything moving nicely and add to the visual display inside this watch. Stainless steel hardware stands out, while gold-plated gears beneath attract your eye to the inner workings. This watch was originally produced by the Hamilton Watch Company of Lancaster, Pennsylvania in 1933. This is the same year that construction on the Golden Gate Bridge began in San Francisco. It eventually opened to the public four years later and was the longest and tallest suspension bridge in the world at the time of completion.

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.
