Established in 1892, the American brand’s story began in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. In 1912, the company sent accurate watches to those working on the railroads as accidents were very common during that time. The pocket watches then became known as ‘The watch of railroad accuracy’. Two years later, Hamilton started supplying timepieces to the US Armed Forces, and by the 1930s, Hamilton was the official timekeeper of choice for commercial airlines in the United States. The brand is also famous for its appearance in movies like Men In Black and Interstellar, and is the biggest supplier of watch props to the Hollywood movie industry. Find out more here.
