Product DetailFounded in 1892, the Hamilton Watch Company of Lancaster, PA would not officially start its watch production until March 1894, having first chosen the name Columbian Watch Co. but this name was already copyrighted by the Waterbury Co. The name "Hamilton" was derived from Lancaster’s founding father, Mr. Andrew Hamilton, a Scottish-born attorney who was instrumental in the growth of Lancaster.
By 1908 Hamilton was producing a lady’s pendant watch and during the WWI period a small line of military style watches were available for men. Hamilton never looked back, arguably producing the highest quality American made watches from the 1920s through the 1960s.

Please note that all pictures are taken on the macro setting. This makes even the slightest imperfections, shadows during photography, and specks of dust appear much more prominent even though they are often not visible without magnification
A careful shopper who takes the time to study the photos, reads the entire description, and asks pertinent questions is our best customer
You will be pleasantly surprised and receive many compliments when wearing your watch. There is nothing that draws attention quite like a stunning watch
Because older vintage wristwatches were made smaller than watches made today, men or women can wear this and would look fabulous on your wrist
All of our watches have been tested and serviced if needed. We time all watches for at least 48 hours prior to listing and 12 hours prior to shipment. If it doesn't maintain acceptable accuracy, or function properly, we won't ship it and the buyer will receive a refund

Vintage Watch Outlet is not an authorized dealer of any of the watch brands we carry. All brand names and trademarks are the property of their respective owners and are used for identification purposes only. This allows us to sell luxury items at discounted prices. Vintage Watch Outlet is not affiliated with any website that sells Fake or Replica items. All of our wristwatches are genuine and authentic. Because most vintage watches being offered are between 30-70 years old, small imperfections, scratches, and wear are to be expected
This is a vintage used watch. It has lived a life before you, so you should not expect it to be new and flawless. If you want a flawless new watch, please do not buy this. If you want a piece of history in the form of a nice vintage piece, then this may be right for you
It is my hope that all of our items will go to people who will enjoy and appreciate them. We will gladly accept a return, or take care of a problem, if we make a gross error in the description. If we have made no gross errors, it is a final sale. This is merely due to the items being antiques, vintage, or pre-owned.
