HAMILTON WATCHES

The Hamilton Watch Company was founded in 1892, as a product of a bankruptcy sale. The Keystone Standard Watch Company in Pennsylvania went bankrupt and was sold at sheriff's auction, where it was purchased by entrepreneurs who set out to create only high quality watches. A merger that occurred right after the company started set the stage for this company's quick growing future in the watch making business. The company started producing time pieces with a goal to create "America's Finest Watch", and created their first model in 1893. In the years that followed, this company became known as the best for pocket watches, offering only two size movements that were made with the best quality in mind.

Hamilton pieces were known as the 'watch of railroad accuracy' because they became so popular among railroad conductors and travellers who wanted to keep time accordingly. The first of the wrist series of Hamilton products didn't come along until 1917, and it was designed to appeal to the men who were shipping out into World War I. This included a line of watches that quickly became some of the best watches in America. More mergers, more products, and years later, the company became successful with marine chronometers during WWII, when more than 1 million watches were sent overseas to the troops.

By modern day, the brand had been purchased by other companies and was still operated under its original name brand. Today, it is owned by the SG Ltd., known for creating some of the best watches in the world. Hamilton watches did take a hit with this merger because they no longer use the proprietary 'in house' mechanics that made them famous, but the mechanics of their parent company. Still, the brand is quite popular and has a variety of designs for men to choose from.
