Hamilton Watch Company first started out in 1892 in Lancaster where they became producers of some of the finest timepieces in the world. The Maison industrialised the watchmaking process by scaling it up to mass production, where they then began manufacturing timepieces for the American Railroad system. Hamilton focussed on reliability and durability first and foremost, whilst their beautiful decoration was welcomed on the wrists of professionals, socialites, businessmen and those who liked to travel. Although known worldwide for their impeccable mechanical self winding movements, Hamilton also offer a compelling collection of quartz operated timepieces. Housed inside robust cases and tested to their limits, Hamilton’s quartz watches were built to stand the test of time whilst ensuring that those who wore them were never late to there appointments.
Quartz Hamilton watches are built from fine materials and feature throughout most of their popular collections. As an alternative to automatic Hamilton watches, these timepieces require much less maintenance, whilst aesthetically they compromise on nothing. The beauty and technical features on the dial of a quartz watch are equal to that of an automatic watch. The only difference is the beating heart within in.
