From 1892 to the mid 1980’s, Lancaster, Pennsylvania was home to Hamilton Watch Company. By preserving a level of quality control and refining their methods of manufacture, Hamilton soon industrialised the luxury watchmaking process, scaling it up from small to mass production. After this, the production of these special timepieces took place in Biel, Switzerland, where Hamilton watches have remained ever since. Nestled amongst traditional Swiss watch manufacture, Hamilton can combine their innovative designs with precision of the very highest quality. The company also devote their time to researching and adding high quality materials into their manufacture. Stainless steel has long been used in the development of luxury Swiss wristwatches, yet it is Hamilton who are one of the very few watch brands within the industry who have managed to bring the material to new heights, with modern designs that look sleek and sophisticated no matter what the occasion.
There are many advantages to wearing a stainless steel watch. Not only is it the most affordable of all luxury wristwatches but is also keeps its beautiful polish for many years to come. Stainless steel is heard-wearing and incredibly robust. Hamilton often combine brushed surfaces with polished finishes to create a timepiece that will compliment a pair of platinum cufflinks or white gold gentleman’s jewellery – a bracelet or wedding ring for example. As an official stockist of stainless steel Hamilton watches, we here at Berry’s, are proud to be able to offer a range of male and female designs – some operated by quartz movements – others automatic. Our steel Hamilton watches are also fitted with leather straps or matching stainless steel link bracelets with foldable clasps, allowing you to choose the perfect timepiece for you depending on your requirements and practical needs within a watch.
Stainless steel Hamilton watches are modern and stylish, perfect for all manner of different occasions and what’s more, they also feel substantial on the wrist. The Hamilton Khaki Navy Frogman watch is the perfect example of how stainless steel can be combined with a vibrant dial colour to create a bold and eye-catching design on the wrist. The diameter of the case is broad and confident. A 42mm brushed stainless steel case has been fitted with a blue aluminium unidirectional rotating bezel for recording dive time. By simply aligning the red arrow-tipped hand with the triangle on the bezel, the wearer has easy access to his time spent under water depths of down to 300 meters.
Painted among their American Classic watches and stylish Jazzmaster watches, are bold creations like the Hamilton Khaki Aviation X-Wind 46mm watch – a timepiece that perfectly demonstrates the company’s use of strong, durable stainless steel, melded with contemporary aesthetics. The chiselled look of the steel case adds to its masculine design. The large powerful-looking steel push pieces at 2, 4, 8 and 10 o’clock on the bezel, operate the many functions of this Pilot’s watch, including the chronograph features. In this design, the chunky stainless steel casing is integrated with 100 meter water resistant capabilities – perfect for protecting the automatic chronograph movement at the heart of the watch from damage whilst wearing it underwater.
