About Hamilton

The original Hamilton Watch Company was founded in 1892 in Lancaster, PA. In 1966, the company acquired the Swiss-based Buren Watch Company. Hamilton made watches in USA until 1969, the same year that operations were moved to Buren facilities in Switzerland. Only 3 years later, in 1972, the Hamilton/Buren partnership was dissolved, which lead to the Hamilton brand being purchased by what eventually became Swatch Group in 1974. Hamilton watches are still being produced today by the conglomerate.

Since there’s no page for the Hamilton H-50 caliber, I’ll leave this here. I bought a Hamilton Khaki Mechanical Field Watch recently (2019 model; re-make of the mil-spec GG-W-113). The H-50 movement is very, very accurate. On average it gains about 1-1.5 seconds per day. Within one month it was approximately 28 seconds fast. I’ve owned other ETA 28XX movements that weren’t nearly as accurate (Marathon SS Gen Purpose Field watch: +3-5 secs/day, and others).… Read more »
