The Hamilton Watch Company was founded in 1892. Hamilton’s first watch (936) was launched in 1893. Hamilton mostly produced pocket watches and wristwatches before the company was diversified and shifted its focus. Today Hamilton belongs to the Swatch Group. There, Hamilton is of historical importance because in 1971 it became the third company of what was to later become the Swatch Group.
While Hamilton was launched as an American watch and clock company, based on Pennsylvania, with in-house movements, nowadays Hamilton watches no longer use such calibers. They rely on ETA movements as do many other Swiss made watch brands. Since the late 1980s, after decades of decline, Hamilton reactivated its marketing and promotions to eventually gain traction with collectors. Modern dial styles were derived from vintage models of the 1920, 1930 and 1940 collections. Among such Hamilton watches are the Hamilton Ardmore, Hamilton Boulton, Hamilton Cabot, Hamilton Piping Rock, Hamilton Spur, Hamilton Wilshire, 1957 Hamilton Ventura. Vintage Hamilton watch models are now so popular with collectors that the search for Hamilton watch serial numbers (or Hamilton watches serial numbers) has become an important step in finding the correct Hamilton watch price.
