Hamilton Roots
Hamilton Watch Company was founded in 1891 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. In the early 1900s Hamilton set out to deliver accurate watches to the railroad community with their first series of pocket watches known as “The watch of Railroad accuracy” while gaining the prestigious rank of supplier to the US Armed Forces. In 1942 during World War II, Hamilton stopped production for consumers to concentrate on providing the US forces with the total of one million timepieces including the marine chronometers. 1957 brought around the world’s first electric watch: the Ventrua, a revolutionary technology and design; while in 1970 Hamilton created the worlds first LED digital watch. Hamilton Watch Company transferred to a Swiss Company now known as Swatch Group. Today Hamilton is established as one of the leading brand in the world with a proven reputation for creating elegant, unique and reliable watches. Hamilton watches combine a strong American spirit with the unrivaled precision of the latest Swiss movements and technology.
