Watch Description

What makes the Lancaster 152 unique: We are pleased to be able to showcase another one of our Bronzed Titanium cases on this exquisite timepiece from the Hamilton Watch Company, our Lancaster 152. We have a lot of requests for a bronze option within our lineup of watches, and this process turns the case color to mimic bronze, without the long-term aging that a bronze case will get over time. We love the pairing of the gold-colored numerals with our gold-plated crown and hardware. The vertical accents on the dial add to the visual appeal that draws you in and is continued into the stitching on this oxblood cordovan strap. As we turn the watch over to reveal this 916-grade movement, we see more of this incredible craftsmanship with these perfectly machined Geneva lines that decorate the entire 3/4 bridge plate. Stainless steel hardware holds all 17 screw-set jewels in place and brings some shimmer to add to the precious metal gears that show from beneath. This watch was originally manufactured in Lancaster, Pennsylvania by the Hamilton Watch Company in 1926.

In November of this same year, the United States officially established the numbered highway system, including the world-famous Route 66. It was originally built as a way to easily travel from Chicago, Illinois to Las Angeles, California. The country fell deep into the deep depression by 1929 and construction was hard to keep on track due to the economic crisis across the country. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt stepped in and made the highway part of his “New Deal” that was eventually passed, and the project was finally completed in 1938.

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.
