The Hamilton Watch Company was established in Lancaster, Pennsylvania back in 1892 to make quality pocket watches and wrist watches. Hamilton became popular quickly. Its watches appealed mainly to adventurers on the verge or World War I. The first watch to be used during a climb to Mount Everest was a Hamilton piece, as well. 

During World War II, Hamilton produced military timepieces. The first electric watch – Hamilton Electric – came into existence in 1957. In 1969, Hamilton discontinued its manufacturing in the US. The two main collections that Hamilton has made available are Khaki and American Classic. The company relies mainly on the traditional and even slightly vintage look of its watches that are designed for the needs of both ladies and gentlemen.
