Watch Description

What makes the Lancaster 124 unique: Today, we are proud to present this spectacular piece from the Hamilton Watch Company — the Lancaster 124. Originally manufactured in 1923 by the Hamilton Watch Company, the Lancaster 124 features a unique watch face design, bold type numbers, and a clear display case that reveals the intricate stainless steel gears with gold details. The artwork on the dial resembles a silver snowflake. Our Machined Titanium case complements the dial pattern wonderfully, and our highly durable and scratch-resistant coating protects this timepiece from blizzards. Powered by 17 jewels, this 916-grade timepiece is a refreshing change of pace. Lastly, our Mojave leather strap brings the heat to this incredible timepiece, making it a temperate wonder. This watch was originally produced in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, in 1923 — the same year that Sherwin Badger won the U.S. Men's Figure Skating championship. He won the U.S. Singles Championship 5 times in a row and is considered to be the first great American ice skater.

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.
