Railroads and More (Accuracy)

Hamilton and the US railroads were linked since the very beginning. Back in the late 1800s, railroad accidents were commonplace, due to a lack of standard time in the country and to imprecise timepieces. Standard time was adopted in 1883 and railroad standards for pocket watches, the tools with which engineers kept time on the rails, were made more stringent to reduce accidents. The year after these standards were introduced, Hamilton was born and their first watch was designed to meet and exceed the standards.

Hamilton was successful and became a leader in accuracy and precision in US watchmaking and Hamilton pocket watches were the most used by US railroad men. The brand became known as the “Watch of Railroad Accuracy.”

The Military (Innovation and Excellence)

Hamilton’s very first wristwatches had been made for the military during the First World War, so when America became involved in World War II, Hamilton stepped up to make watches and other timepieces for use in the war effort. In fact, the company halted all consumer production to focus on producing for the armed forces, making more than one million watches during the war period.

Hamilton, due to its high quality, achieved the official Army-Navy E Award for excellence in military production and was the only company able to mass produce the Marine Chronometer. The US Navy needed chronometers to be able to celestially navigate on the open seas. Using dead reckoning required the precise time, and Hamilton succeeded where so many companies failed, producing a more than 10,000 chronometers.

Aviation (Adaptation)

Though Hamilton made its name working with the railroad, yet when air travel began to overtake travel by trains, the company was quick to adapt and became a leader there as well.

Hamilton was involved in making pilot’s watches during the war, of course, but it wasn’t until air travel became more popular that it began to make watches linked to aviation for the general consumer.

Cinema (Image)

Back before product placement as a concept even existed, Hamilton was involved in movies, effectively being the first watch brand to be featured on the silver screen.

The brand has gone on to become the most successful watch brand in Hollywood (and Bollywood, French cinema, Chinese cinema and more).

A Hamilton first appeared on the silver screen in 1951, in “The Frogmen,” starring Richard Widmark. This film followed a Navy Underwater Demolition Team during the Second World War, and Hamilton watches were used, most probably, because the brand was the Official supplier of watches to the military during World War Two and had actually designed, made and provided submersible watches for the Navy. In several films, in fact, Hamilton has been featured first and foremost for historical accuracy.

After “The Frogmen,” Hamilton graced Elvis Presley’s wrist in “Blue Hawaii.” The watch used in the film was the famous Ventura, a watch that Elvis himself loved, owned and wore.

Since these two appearances, Hamilton has been in more than 400 feature films, with some of the more famous being “Men in Black” series (all three films), “Independence Day,” the “Die Hard” series and “A Beautiful Mind.”

Hamilton has also been a leader in creating unique watches for films, with the two most famous being “2001: A Space Odyssey” and “Interstellar.”
