1930s. By now renowned for accuracy in flight, Hamilton was the official watch of the four major American commercial airlines of the day. Hamilton was also selected as the official timekeeper for the very first coast-to-coast service from New York to San Francisco.
Is Hamilton considered a luxury watch?
Although Hamilton watches are owned by the Swatch Group, they are not considered as premium or luxury watches. This is because most of them cost under $500, which is below the standard prices of luxury watch brands such as Omega and Rolex.
How accurate are Hamilton watches?
The accuracy of a watch depends on the movement and the individual habits of the owner and can therefore vary. A qualified HAMILTON watchmaker can set the accuracy of a watch within the set tolerance. Most watches that do not have a chronometer certificate have an average course deviation of -10/+15 seconds per day.
