ABOUT HAMILTON WATCHES
Founded in 1892 in Pennsylvania, the Hamilton Watch Company has a rich history as one of the leading American watch manufacturers in the world. Its early years saw production being focused on pocket watches to aid railroad accuracy, putting a stop to serious accidents and providing Hamilton with its reputation for successful timekeeping. The following years saw Hamilton produce watches for both consumers and the US armed forces, with around 10,000 Hamilton marine chronometers experiencing World War II on the wrists of American soldiers. However, it was after the conflict when Hamilton truly announced itself as a watch manufacturer to take on the global market, with 1957 seeing the launch of the world's first battery-powered watch, the Hamilton Ventura. It reached iconic levels when worn by Elvis Presley in ‘Blue Hawaii' in 1961, and Hamilton watches have not looked back since. With further advances, including production of the world's first digital watch in the 1970s, Hamilton is now considered one of the world's leading watchmakers. It combines a strong American identity and spirit with the precision of Swiss movements and technology valued by current brand owners The Swatch Group Ltd. Today's Hamilton range features a number of popular vintage watches that evoke Hamilton's golden age, including the infamous Ventura. Other key designs ensure the brand remains up to date with current trends and technology, such as the X range's cutting edge aviation watches.
