If you are new to the higher-end watch scene, or are at least looking to dip your toes in, Hamilton is a great place to start. Founded in Lancaster Pennsylvania in 1892, Hamilton manufactured the watches the kept the trains on time, and produced the US army standard-issue watch during WWII. While the American Classic railroad chronos are now produced in Switzerland, they are rooted in American culture. This self-winding Chronograph is a subtle statement piece for the office. The Hamilton name carries the weight you want, while the intricate design gives off the look of sophistication without being flashy, perfect for consultants, or B2B sales guys looking to impress clients and their coworkers.
