Price Matching on Watches & Jewellery
Innovative, iconic, known for American Spirit, Swiss Precision, and for the highest performance standards and Swiss-made movements. Hamilton creates automatic, mechanical and quartz watches for men and women. With a reputation for craftsmanship and strong movie, military and aviation heritage, Hamilton watches include the Khaki Field, Khaki Aviation, Khaki Navy, Ventura and Jazzmaster Collection.
Founded in 1892 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA, Hamilton watches blend American spirit with Swiss precision. The Hamilton Watch Company is now a Swiss manufacturer of wristwatches in Bienne, Switzerland, but had its inception as an American company that manufactured its first timepiece in 1893.
The brand belongs to the Swatch Group, which is the world’s largest watch manufacturer and marketer. With unrivalled precision and innovation, Hamilton watches stand out with their fantastic movements and technologies, as well as their aeronautical heritage and Hollywood background (Hamilton products have appeared in over 450 films).
The name of the brand comes from James Hamilton, the son of Andrew Hamilton, a Scottish-born lawyer who founded Lancaster and was the original owner of the site where the factory was located. Hamilton maintained over half the market during the expansion of the railroads in the USA. The first watch created by Hamilton was a 17-jewel pocket watch in 1893 and the company only created two movements in the first 15 years. Its first wristwatch was launched in 1917. Famous Hamilton collectible watches include The Square Enamel, The Coronado, The Piping Rock and The Cambridge. After the First World War, pocket watches gave way to wristwatches, so Hamilton produced wristwatches, and, during the Second World War, Hamilton focused on the military and stopped manufacturing consumer products.
Today, Hamilton watches have a traditional, perhaps even vintage aesthetic, but they’re designed for the modern gent and lady. Their contemporary approach includes creating pieces that are highly functional and stylish. The brand is a pioneer in the aviation and cinema world, as well as a pioneer of digital technology.
Hamilton watch collections are high-performance and reflect a variety of personalities and personal tastes – and we’re proud to stock a large number of them at Banks Lyon.
Hamilton Jazzmaster collection, for example, is a sophisticated blend of innovation and modern aesthetics created to offer a refined look for those who enjoy the best things in life. These elegant pieces will never go out of fashion either; despite their contemporary design, the collection is also timeless and appeals to a wide range of watch enthusiasts.
Hamilton have also created unique pieces, such as the Hamilton Ventura watches, which are some of the brand’s most iconic products. Unconventional and stylish, these quartz, triangular models are known as the Elvis watch and have a truly distinctive appearance that allow them to stand out in the horology world.
Amid their many lines, the watch manufacturer also has a range that caters to divers, the Hamilton Khaki Navy, and a range that is pure aviation, the Hamilton Khaki Aviation. You can also find the perfect timepiece for you if you’re looking for a versatile model that offers a stylish American style (the Hamilton American classic). The brand even manufactures a military line, the Hamilton Khaki Field, which is suitable for those who love history and want a robust watch.
Hamilton watches come in many different sizes, colours and styles and, whether you’re seeking a watch with complications or a simpler piece, all Hamilton watches are affordable while offering great value to the wearer.
