Watch Description

What makes the Lancaster 164 unique: Today, we’re thrilled to present to you this highly luxurious wristwatch that features a Hamilton Watch Company pocket watch from 1935 — the Lancaster 164. The piece’s original pocket watch boasts sumptuous details on its cream-colored dial, including violet spade & whip hands and a practical subdial. But perhaps the most remarkable feature of this watch is its hour numerals — these incredibly handsome numerals were crafted from solid 18-karat gold. We protected these stylish and valuable details by encasing the pocket watch within our robust Machined Titanium case, and paired it with a copper crown, complementing the dial’s stylish numerals. On the back of the watch, you can view its 904-grade open-face movement with a patent motor barrel, golden train, and micrometer regulator. The watch’s rear side also boasts gold-plated gears and 21 gold-screw-set Ruby jewels within its center bridge plate. To top the watch off, we matched it with our comfortable, artisan-designed Natural leather watch strap, matching the pocket watch’s crown and numerals.

The Hamilton Watch Company initially produced the pocket watch in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, in 1935 — the same year Chevrolet released its first generation Suburban, which many consider to be the first sport utility vehicle (SUV). At the time in which Chevrolet debuted the vehicle, no one used the term SUV, but many consider this rugged conveyance to fit this classification because Chevrolet constructed the vehicle with a station wagon body on top of small truck chassis, making it durable while also having the ability to transport up to eight people.

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.
