Watch Description

What makes the Lancaster 134 unique: Today, we’re thrilled to present you this elegant piece initially produced by the Hamilton Pocket Watch Company in 1928 — the Lancaster 134. The piece’s simple yet stylish dial features a white background along with subtle, highly unique dots along its face. The dial also sports navy hour and minute hands with arrow-shaped tips as well as dark, stylish numerals that convey the watch’s antique qualities. We paired the original pocket watch with our robust, one-of-a-kind Machined Titanium case, and we topped it off with a copper crown. The Machined Titanium’s rear display case reveals breathtaking details, including 19 ruby jewels with gold settings, a ¾ plate, a micrometer regulator, and a Breguet hairspring. The piece also boasts gold-plated gears that match its distinct gold-colored engravings. Its engravings attest to the watch’s authenticity reading “Hamilton Watch Co. Lancaster, PA.” Finally, the watch’s 918-grade open-face movement comes with a nickel finish and pendant setting. We equipped this antique piece with our comfortable, artisan-designed Olive leather watch strap. The Hamilton Watch Company manufactured the pocket watch in 1928 — the same year that sliced bread became available to the public. Sliced bread inventor Otto Frederick Rohwedder first created a bread-slicing machine prototype in 1912, but a fire destroyed his invention. Fortunately, in 1928, Fohwedder successfully developed a fully working bread-slicing machine. The Missouri-based Chillicothe Baking Company sold the first bread slices on July 7, 1928, meaning the Lancaster 134 is as old as sliced bread.

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.
