Hamilton, a 117-year-old watch brand which is part of the Swatch Group, was founded in 1892 in Lancaster, Pa., and is known for its innovative designs and watch technology.
Some of Hamilton's accomplishments include:
* The secret assignment, “Project X”, lasted three years and in 1957 resulted in the introduction of the Ventura, the world’s first electric (battery-powered) watch. In 1961 Elvis Presley wore his Ventura in the film “Blue Hawaii”.
* At 12.01 New York Time, on May 6, 1970, the world’s first digital watch started measuring time – made by Hamilton.
