Vintage & Pre-Owned Hamilton Watches

Hamilton is easily considered the preeminent brand of wristwatches made in America. Since WBAW? opened its doors nearly 40 years ago, we have been proud purveyors of used and vintage Hamilton watches. Founded in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in 1892 producing high quality pocket watches for gentlemen, ladies, and for railroad workers and executives, Hamilton is the best known and highest regarded of the U.S. watchmakers of the 20th Century. Hamilton was the first in the 1980’s to introduce reissues of many of its most popular models from the 1940’s, 1950’s, and 1960’s, including the Boulton, the Hamilton Electric reissue of the Ventura, the Ardmore, the Carlisle, and countless others.

We are proud to represent the finest of vintage and pre-owned Hamilton watches in our selection.
