Watch Description

What makes the Lancaster 125 unique: Today, we are excited to introduce this stunning piece from the Hamilton Watch Company — the Lancaster 125. Originally manufactured in 1936 by the Hamilton Watch Company, the Lancaster 125 features an alabaster watch face design, gold type numbers, and a clear display case that reveals the intricate, stainless steel gears with gold details. This watch has been preserved incredibly, making it stunning to the eye. Our Machined Titanium case complements the dial and subdial wonderfully, and our highly durable and scratch-resistant coating accentuates the beauty of this timepiece. Powered by 17 jewels in screw settings, this 912-grade timepiece is exemplary. Lastly, our Tobacco leather strap accentuates the Roman numerals and studded border, giving it a composition unlike any other. This watch was originally produced in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, in 1936 — the same year that the 1st electron tube to enable night vision was described in St. Louis, Missouri. Night vision was originally reserved for the military and special agencies, but after manufacturing costs were lowered, a consumer market was created. Nowadays, night vision has many utilities, such as night fishing, wildlife observation, and rescue missions.

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.
