Founded in 1892 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in the United States of America, Hamilton started their luxury watchmaking journey by supplying high precision pocket watches to employees of the American railway. The precision of their pocket watches helped synchronise timekeeping across the entire railway and in turn prevented and reduced the number of accidents. A few years later, Hamilton began equipping the U.S. Armed Forces during WWI with accurate timepieces, prompting a swift move from the traditional pocket watch towards the functional wristwatch.
In 1928, Hamilton launched its famous Piping Rock watch which became the official watch of the four major American commercial airlines and four years later, the Hamilton Flintridge watch became the first by the brand to appear in a Hollywood movie. One of their most legendary film appearances, however, was when their Ventura model was worn by Elvis Presley during the making of the musical comedy Blue Hawaii. To this day, the Swiss-American watch brand’s associations with the King of Rock & Roll make their Ventura collection one of the most sought after in the industry. By the 1970’s, Hamilton’s had moved from America to the watchmaking capital of the world, Switzerland, and from there their reputation grew extensively. They created innovations like their legendary Pulsar watch with a futuristic LED display more classic-looking pieces like the Hamilton Boulton, the Wilshire and the Ardmore.
Today, Hamilton is most famed for their “Movie Watches”. Including its debut in Blue Hawaii, Hamilton watches have appeared in over 450 movies including Men in Black, Spiderman: Homecoming, Terminator, I Am Legend, Independence Day: Resurgence and Rush. One of their most popular “cinema watches” was their Khaki Field Murph model designed for the 2014 film Interstellar and later, the duo of Khaki Navy BELOWZERO watches designed for another of Christopher Nolan’s pictures, TENET. Their current best-selling collections include the Khaki Field, Khaki Navy, American Classic, Broadway, Khaki Aviation, Jazzmaster and Ventura.
