Watch Description

What makes the Lancaster 130 unique: Today, we are thrilled to present this piece initially crafted by the Hamilton Watch Company — the Lancaster 130. Hamilton built this piece of American history in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and they spared no expense when it came to designing the dial and movement. The dial's simple yet elegant design features a light background contrasting its dark and stylish numerals. We created our wristwatch out of Hamilton's original pocket watch by matching it with our DLC black case and copper crown. The case finish complements the dark numerals while emphasizing the light dial background. The Lancaster 130's back features 916-grade, open-face movement with a nickel finish and pendant setting. The piece's clear display reveals its breathtaking, gold-plated gears powered by 17 jewels. We equipped this luxurious historical watch with our richly-colored Merlot leather strap. Hamilton Watch Company originally crafted this piece in 1927 — the same year that pilot Charles Lindbergh flew The Spirit of St. Louis from New York to Paris. The flight was a groundbreaking landmark in American and aviation history because it was the first time a solo pilot completed a nonstop transatlantic flight. Other pilots attempted the same flight that year, but Charles Lindbergh was the only aviator who attempted the flight without another crew member. Tragically, six people died trying to fly nonstop to Europe before Lindbergh's success. On May 20, 1927, Lindbergh took flight in his single-engine monoplane and arrived in Paris almost 34 hours later after traveling 3,600 miles.

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.
