Established in 1892 in the United States, Hamilton planted its roots in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, the site of the original Hamilton factory. Hamilton first made its name during the early days of the American railroads. As the country built its crucial infrastructure, Hamilton began supplying accurate watches that were credited with helping to prevent and reduce accidents by synchronizing timing on the rails.
Since 1974, Hamilton has been a part of the Swatch Group and, in 2003, their headquarters and production were moved to the center of watchmaking country in Biel, Switzerland. Hamilton watches now have the prestigious Swiss made label, but Hamilton is still American at heart, just as it was when it was first established in 1892. Hamilton’s long history and its achievement of numerous milestones, have contributed to making Hamilton the strong, internationally renowned watch brand it is today.
