Your Hamilton watch must always be diagnostically inspected first to produce an accurate repair quotation, this allows the watchmaker to find out exactly what issues need addressed and price any parts accordingly.

However most repairs are covered in a full Hamilton watch service price which varies depending on model.

The price is made up of the master watchmaker’s time in servicing the watch (which can take up to 4 hours) and the cost of any parts required to restore performance.

If you are being offered a service for cheaper it would be advisable to proceed with caution. It may be generic parts that are being used in your repair resulting in your watch losing its worth and running into similar problems in the near future.

The old adage holds true for luxury watch ownership, buy cheap, buy twice.

Having your watch maintained by an accredited service centre will ensure your your Hamilton watch lasts long into the future and retains its value.

What is involved in an Hamilton Watch Service?

  • 1The watch is broken down and the movement is removed from the case. The bracelet, case, seals and movement are inspected thoroughly to diagnose any issues. We strip the whole movement and the case components.
  • 2Every part inside the watch is inspected for wear and anything showing the slightest sign of deterioration is removed and replaced with new parts from the manufacturer. Tolerances inside watches are so fine that even the smallest defect can affect performance.
  • 3Once inspected all parts are then put through our ultrasonic cleaner with specialist fluids, which removed old grease from the parts.
  • 4After it goes through the cleaning agent and three rinsing agents, it is put through a drying process resulting in a completely clean movement ready for re-assembly and lubricating.
hamilton-watch-service-process
  • 5We assemble the movement and fit the dial and hands assuring everything are aligned and then time test the watch to assure it is performing accurately.
  • 6We then move on to the case and bracelet (if the watch has one) which is cleaned and refurbished. We use various polishing, cutting and grinding wheels to remove any small dents, scratches and imperfections where possible, brining the watch as close to new condition as possible.
  • 7The case is reassembled so it is now a watertight empty case. We then pressure test it to the required bar to ensure there are no leaks.
  • 8Watch is reassembled and time tested for the second time and placed on test for 2-3 days on our workshop simulator which slowly moves the watch round in different positions. This allows us to monitor the watches performance and see if any further adjustments are required.

The History of Hamilton

 

a-brief-hamilton-watches-history

Since its establishment, Hamilton watches have been associated with tasteful designs and functionality. They are highly regarded for their innovative spirit as well as the unique blend of American aesthetics and Swiss engineering.

The brand was founded 1892 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. In the following year the brand initiated production by launching its first watch designed by H.J. Cain – one of the companys founding members. By 1912 the brand was producing their first series of pocket watches. These quickly became popular for their remarkable precision and durability. Following this initial wave of success, in 1914 Hamilton was designated the official watch supplier of the US Armed Forces, gaining instant prestige.

With the launch of the iconic Piping Rock and Yankee watch models in 1928, Hamilton affirmed its position as an industry leader, paving the way in American watchmaking. The brand once again reasserted its vanguard position in the industry, during the Second World War, when it was commissioned by the US army to produce timepieces for the military. To dedicate itself entirely in the production of the finest and most reliable watches for the Armed Forces, the company temporarily ceased producing watches for the general public.

The Hamilton marine chronometers developed in the 1940s were the very first to be created by means of modern manufacturing. Furthermore, these innovative timepieces were heavily relied on by the US Navy, and were often used as an alternative to radio in finding position. Since radio signal could be easily detected and falsified by the enemy, these chronometers played a truly vital role as military equipment during the war. During the course of the war, the brand produced almost 11,000 marine chronometers which met the toughest demands for accuracy and reliability. In gratitude for the exceptional quality of products supplied by Hamilton, the brand was rewarded with an ‘E’ award in 1943, presented for excellence in production of military equipment.

In 1951, the brand instigated its prominent association with the film industry, by appearing in the Oscar-nominated picture – ‘The Frogmen’. Since then, the brand has appeared in more than 450 films. Furthermore, its products have adorned the wrists of eminent Hollywood individuals, including Elvis Presley in the film ‘Blue Hawaii’. By employing a strategy of celebrity endorsement, the brand has further established its legitimacy as an important player in the watchmaking business.

A true pioneer, Hamilton is notable for introducing new technologies in the art of advanced watchmaking. Amongst its most eminent innovations is the Ventura watch – the world’s first electric watch from 1957, as well as the Pulsar – the first LED digital watch released in 1970. In 1974 Hamilton became a subsidiary of the SSIH, later known as the Swatch Group. In 2003, it transferred its production and headquarters from the U.S. to Biel, Switzerland.

In the more recent years, Hamilton has revived its classic models from the 1920s to 1960s. Old favourites such as the Boulton, Ardmore, Wilshire and Ventura models initiated an industry-wide trend of vintage classic watches. To this day, Hamilton offers timepieces of exceptional quality. Their impressive range of models and finishes allows for a more personalised feel, giving a modern twist to vintage designs. Its horological expertise, prominent history and association with the U.S army positions it at the pinnacle of the finest American watchmaking.
