Over a century of timing the skies

In 1918, as the age of aviation developed, Hamilton watches helped to keep the new coast to coast U.S. Airmail service on time. Since then, Hamilton has been synonymous with the world of aviation. In 2018, we celebrated 100 years of timing the skies.

At the heart of cinema for more than 80 years

Since 1932, Hamilton has been known as the Movie Brand, owing to our close association with Hollywood. Hamilton watches first appeared on screen in the Hollywood movie ‘Shanghai Express’ starring Marlene Dietrich and have since appeared in over 500 major feature films, including ‘Interstellar’ and ‘The Martian’.

Designing an icon

Innovation has been one of the biggest keys to Hamilton’s success with major developments appearing in the mid 20th century that changed the world of watchmaking forever. In 1957, the Ventura became the world’s first electrical watch powered by a battery and Pulsar, the world’s first LED digital watch, followed in 1970.
