Hamilton New RailRoad Series of Watches – RailRoad 38mm, RailRoad 44mm & RailRoad Auto Chrono

The new Hamilton RailRoad series takes the American brand right back to its proud roots, to the end of the nineteenth century. That was the time when Hamilton earned the title of ‘The Watch of Railroad Accuracy’, by providing railroad staff and passengers across North America with accurate and reliable pocket watches. The designers of today’s Hamilton RailRoad wristwatches have transformed this proven heritage into contemporary chic.

Connecting the past, present and future is an uncompromising commitment to precision to ensure that modern timekeeping stays on the rails. And just to ensure that no wearer loses track of time, a small magnifying glass takes pride of place on the crystal at 3 o’clock sharp.

Hamilton RailRoad 38 mm
A classical Hamilton pocket watch has symbolically shed its chains and wrapped itself around the wrist in the Hamilton RailRoad 38 mm. Circling the dial, markings resembling sections of rail tracks remind of the deep-rooted railroad history, or inspire reminiscing about the model railways of childhood. Applied metallic indices and a date display at three o’clock are easy to read, taking the pace of the timing needs of hectic lifestyles.

There is a choice of silver, black or white dial. These are complemented by black or white leather straps with one rivet bearing the engraved text, ‘The Watch of Railroad Accuracy – Lancaster 1892’. Alternatively, a stainless steel bracelet presents an up-to the-minute interpretation of the chains of its predecessor.

Hamilton RailRoad 44 mm
In the bold Hamilton RailRoad 44 mm model,the pocket watch inspiration expresses itself via the counter disc design.

Hamilton RailRoad Auto Chrono
With its 46 mm case, the Hamilton RailRoad Auto Chrono almost aspires to pocket watch dimensions.

Four different variations combine a stainless steel or black PVD case with a black or silver dial and silver or rose gold appliqués. The railroad inspiration certainly has not been forgotten and a future of precision is clearly on the timetable, signed off by the Hamilton logo on the glass.
