Watch Description

What makes the Lancaster 141 unique: Today, we're excited to feature this highly luxurious and historic watch initially produced by the Hamilton Watch Company in 1928 — the Lancaster 141. The timepiece boasts an elegant, light-gold dial with an intricate center design. The watch face also features stylized numerals and stunning blue watch hands that add even more sophistication. We paired the Hamilton Watch company's original pocket watch with our powerful, scratch-resistant Machined Titanium case, and we equipped it with a gold-plated crown that complements the gold-colored dial. The Machined Titanium case has an open back that showcases the watch's gold-plated gears and 17 screw-set jewels. The back of the watch also displays a 912-grade open-face movement with a ¾ plate and reed regulator. Finally, we matched the Lancaster 141 with our exquisite and comfortable Merlot leather watch strap, making the final product look even more splendid. The Hamilton Watch Company originally manufactured this piece in 1928 — the same year that Pedro Flores opened the first yo-yo manufacturing company in Santa Barbara, California. Although the yo-yo dates back to ancient Greece, Flores introduced a new stringing design that made the yo-yo's movement smoother and more stable. The yo-yo became such a hot seller that by the end of 1929, Flores' three factories produced 300,000 models daily.

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.
