Watch Description

What makes the Lancaster 139 unique:Today, we're thrilled to present you this historic piece initially produced by the Hamilton Watch Company — the Lancaster 139. The watch features a stunningly luxurious dial with golden numerals atop its cream-colored background, and the timepiece also sports dark gray minute and hour hands. The minute hand also features a touch of blue near its base. We continued emphasizing the watch's sumptuous style by equipping it with a gold-plated crown that matches its numerals. We encased the timepiece in our robust, scratch-resistant Machined Titanium case. On the back of the watch, you can view the watch's 912-grade open-face movement with a pendant setting, nickel finish, and Reed regulator. The piece also boasts breathtaking gold-plated gears powered by 17 jewels atop its ¾ plate. Finally, we paired the watch with our comfortable, artisan-designed Cordovan Oxblood leather watch strap, making the final creation even more eye-catching. The Hamilton Pocket Watch Company originally manufactured the pocket watch in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, in 1931 — the same year that President Herbert Hoover signed a congressional act that made "The Star-Spangled Banner" America's official national anthem. Francis Scott Key created the lyrics to our anthem in 1814, and many already considered the song our national anthem throughout the 19th century, including different military branches. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson signed an executive order designating the song as our national anthem. Congress and President Hoover confirmed President Wilson's order by officially signing it into law on March 3, 1931.

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.
