The Hamilton Watch Company has a lengthy distinguished history in watch making. It was founded in Lancaster, Pennsylvania by a group of entrepreneurs with a mission. Their goal was to produce watches “only of the highest caliber” high quality with precision timing. They named the newly minted watch company after James Hamilton, the famed colonial lawyer and statesman who hailed from Lancaster. Thus the Hamilton Watch Company was born.
With quality being their main objective, Hamilton Watches set out to produce “America’s Finest Watch”. The first watch manufactured under the Hamilton banner, in 1893, was an 18-sized 17-jewel pocket watch. In the ensuing six years, Hamilton Watch Co. developed an impeccable reputation for building pocket watches of top notch quality and function.
Hamilton Watches later segued into creating some of the nineteenth century’s finest wristwatches. Some of the many collectible watches made by Hamilton were The Tonneau, The Coronado, The Spur, and The Glendale.
World War Two brought the manufacturing of consumer watches to an abrupt halt. All the Hamilton watches being produced were sent to troops deployed overseas. Over a million watches were shipped to army personnel all over the world. Hamilton watches also produced deck watches and marine chronometers at the request of the U.S. Navy and the navies of the Allied Forces.
The Lady Hamilton watch collection pays tribute to the company’s history of being the first watch company to introduce a wristwatch designed exclusively for a woman. Elegant and sleek it’s the perfect complement to any style ensemble for any occasion.
Hamilton Watches also has an array of watches for the discerning male shopper. From the Hamilton Khaki line, to the Hamilton Aquariva collection, Hamilton watches have universal appeal with moderate price tags.
