Watch Description

What makes the Lancaster 121 unique: Today, we are proud to present this marvelous piece from the Hamilton Watch Company — the Lancaster 121. Originally manufactured in 1926 by the Hamilton Watch Company, the Lancaster 121 features a stylish watch face design, gold type numbers, and a clear display case that reveals the intricate nickel gears with bronze and gold details. The unique hand design on the dial shares a resemblance with sailboats. Our Machined Titanium case brings out the studded border and gradience of the dial spectacularly, and our incredibly durable and scratch-resistant coating preserves the complexity of this timepiece. Powered by 23 ruby and sapphire jewels in gold settings, this 922-grade timepiece is a fortified treasure. Lastly, our Natural leather strap complements the dial of this timepiece beautifully with its golden hue. This watch was originally produced in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, in 1926 — the same year that the U.S. Army Air Corps was created. This military service was dedicated to aerial warfare until 1941 when it became the U.S. Army Air Forces.

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.
