Hamilton was founded in 1892 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA. Hamilton watches combine the American spirit with the unrivalled precision of the latest Swiss movements and technologies. Known for its innovative design, Hamilton has a strong foothold in Hollywood, with products appearing in over 450 films. The brand also boasts a strong aeronautical heritage. Hamilton is a member of the Swatch group, the largest watch manufacturer and distributor in the world with 160 production sites in Switzerland.

The Ventura is a faithful tribute to the original 1957 model, which made watch-making history as the world’s first electrical, battery powered watch. Design detail of the case of the new model mirrors that of its ancestors. The dial is reminiscent of the 1950s Ventura timepieces, complete with digit markings all culminating in an embossed rounded point looking like atoms. The iconic Ventura, with its striking, shield-shaped case, co-starred with the Elvis, the king of rock and roll in the 1961 movie “Blue Hawaii”.
