Watch Description

What makes the Lancaster 126 unique: Today, we are excited to introduce this wonderful piece from the Hamilton Watch Company — the Lancaster 126. Originally manufactured in 1926 by the Hamilton Watch Company, the Lancaster 126 features a stylish watch face design, gold type numbers, and a clear display case, revealing the intricate stainless steel gears with gold details. The striations on the dial design accentuate the studded border magnificently, and our Machined Titanium case brings out the luster of the subdial spectacularly with its incredibly durable and scratch-resistant coating. Powered by 17 jewels, this 916-grade timepiece is exquisite. Lastly, our Moss leather strap complements the gold-type numbers wonderfully. This watch was originally produced in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, in 1926— the same year that Alabama beat Washington in the 12th Rose Bowl 20-19. The Alabama Crimson Tide made their first Rose Bowl appearance in this stunningly close game. This game is now commonly referred to as The Game that Changed the South.

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.
