Why We Love it

The 1920s and 1930s were the golden years of American watchmaking, and Hamilton was a bright star in the horological firmament.

Ties to Swiss brands like Rolex and Aegler resulted in the creation of some of the finest watches ever made in the United States. This watch, a Sekron Doctor’s Watch, is one of the most elegant — and, at the time it was minted, accurate.

This particular timepiece is, without question, an Art Deco masterpiece — stately and subdued with a handsomely-aged cream dial and a black leather strap, it has all the makings of a distinctive dress watch for both men and women alike. It features a 10K, yellow gold-filled Wadsworth case with holey lugs, a blued steel handset, stylized Arabic numerals, and a hand-wound Hamilton Calibre 980B movement. 

Strap this handsome piece on and you’ll be instantly transported back to the golden age of American watchmaking. But don’t take our word for it…

Try it on for size!

Brand Story

+
The Department of Defense first ordered General Issue (GI) watches in 1964, to outfit soldiers in the years leading up to the conflict in Vietnam. Like the 'Dirty Dozen', the GI watches were made to resist exposure in inhospitable environments. Corrosion-resistant steel cases were utilized to protect the movement from debris, moisture, and shock that it would encounter in the jungles of Vietnam or the deserts of the Middle East.

The DoD contracted GI watches from many manufacturers, the most notable among them being Hamilton and Benrus. While other manufacturers cast their cases in plastic or fiberglass, Hamilton--the first manufacturer to receive the contract in 1964--cast theirs in steel throughout the entire 30 years of production. The look of these watches remained more or less the same during this interval, in keeping with the utility of their design and construction.

Their dials were spartan, and featured printed Arabic indices for both 12- and 24-hour graduations with luminous plots at each interval, with matching luminous 'syringe' hands and a 'spear' central seconds hand which was coated with a healthy dollop of Tritium to ensure maximum legibility. The 17-jewel, manual wind movements fitted were equipped with a hacking feature: a mechanism that stops the second hand from moving when setting the time. This enabled soldiers to synchronize their timepieces for maximum accuracy during elite operations and coordinated maneuvers. Despite the compact size of 34mm, these watches were designed to take a beating.
