Raymond Lee Jewelers of Boca Raton, FL offers a wide variety of luxury timepieces from brands such as Breguet. Founded in 1983, the business continues to offer only the best service and values for its watches. The Hamilton Watch Company was founded in 1892 in Pennsylvania. The company was originally formed to produce high-quality pocket watches and some wristwatches. Today, however, its focus is on mechanical and quartz wristwatches.
During WWII, production of civilian watches ceased and only military watches were produced to be shipped off to troops. The company had much success in producing marine chronometers to meet the demand of the United States Navy. One of the watches produced was the Model 21, which had a chain drive fusee. The Model 22 followed soon afterwards, which had a main spring. The Model 22 was used by the US Army and by US Navy Bureau Ships.
In modern days, the Hamilton brand name is owned by The Swatch Group. Movements used in Hamilton watches are from ETA, The Swatch Group’s subsidiary. In 2007, Hamilton introduced special editions of the Ventura. In the US, only steel quartz and automatic versions were released. In Asia, yellow and rose gold plated versions were released.
