AMERICAN SPIRIT, SWISS PRECISION
Founded in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, in 1892, Hamilton creates watches with a unique balance of authenticity and innovation. Its timepieces synchronized the first railroads and kept time for aviation pioneers and U.S. soldiers. A favorite of filmmakers for decades, Hamilton watches have appeared in more than 500 movies, with custom pieces playing a pivotal role in several Hollywood blockbusters. With a continued commitment to craftsmanship and accuracy, Hamilton launched the world’s first electric watch in 1957 and the first LED digital watch in 1970.
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.
