The Hamilton Watch Company was founded in Lancaster, Pennsylvania (USA) in 1892.
Its first series of pocket watches, Broadway Limited, became known as the “Watch of Railroad Accuracy”.
During the second decade of the 20th century Hamilton gained the prestigious rank of supplier to the US Armed Forces. During World War II, Hamilton stopped production of watches for consumers to concentrate on the huge task of providing the forces with a total of one million timepieces.
The secret assignment, “Project X”, lasted three years and in 1957 resulted in the introduction of the Ventura, the world’s first electric (battery-powered) watch.
At 12.01 New York Time, on May 6, 1970, the world’s first digital watch started measuring time – made by Hamilton.
The special Hamilton/Hollywood relationship continued with roles in such films as Men in Black, Lethal Weapon 4, Fight Club, Independence Day, The Talented Mr. Ripley and You’ve Got Mail.
The Khaki line comprises the Hamilton military watches with their long and strong tradition. “Khaki” originates from the Hindu word for earth or dust and has long been the color used for military uniforms. Today the color is associated with adventure and the current Khaki watches in the Hamilton collection are direct descendents of their heroic forerunners that served the forces in both world wars. Within the Hamilton Khaki line there are four families: Aviation, Action, Field and Navy, all with individual identities characterized by different functions, cases, colors, strap materials and hand or dial designs.
