HAMILTON

The Hamilton watch company was founded in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in 1892.  Known for accuracy, the firm soon became a supplier to the railroad and aviation industries, as well as the US military.  In the mid-twentieth century Hamilton watches graced the wrists of Hollywood stars, including Elvis Presley in "Blue Hawaii".  Ever pioneering, Hamilton introduced the first battery-operated watch in 1957, and the first digital watch in 1970.  Today the company is going strong, and its designs were featured in such blockbuster films as Men in Black, The Talented Mr Ripley, Fight Club and Independence Day.
