Watch Description

What makes the Lancaster 128 unique: Today, we are excited to introduce this stunning piece from the Hamilton Watch Company — the Lancaster 128. Originally manufactured in 1926 by the Hamilton Watch Company, the Lancaster 128 features an alabaster dial design, sleek-type numbers, and a clear display case that reveals the intricate, stainless steel gears with gold-plated details. The ornate artwork on the dial complements the watch wonderfully and is stunning to the eye. Our Machined Titanium case complements the dial and subdial exceptionally, letting some of the fine details show through. Powered by 17 jewels in screw settings, this 912-grade timepiece is a historical masterpiece. Lastly, our Moss leather strap brings out the deep blue in the hands, tying the whole piece together. This watch was originally produced in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, in 1926 — the same year land at Broadway and Wall Street sold at a record of $7 per square inch! Today, the cost would be approximately $110 per square inch. For reference, one square foot of land contains 144 square inches, equaling a total of $15,840 to purchase one square foot of land at Broadway and Wall Street today!

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.
