An American Icon Turns 120 and Ron Gordon Watches of NYC Commemorates

New York, NY. May 31, 2012. Ron Gordon Watches, a leading Watch Repair Shop in New York, NY, is proud to commemorate the 120th anniversary of Hamilton Watches. Hamilton Watches are an American icon, with the company having been founded in Lancaster, PA, in 1892. The company started with a focus on the issue of time and the railroads, and grew into areas such as aviation – industries atune to the growing industrial might of the United States. Ron Gordon Watches, in turn, is a local New York city watch repair shop that celebrates the diversity and tradition of fine watches – both European and American.

“One hundred and twenty years for a watch company like Hamilton can be seen as long or short,” explained Ron Gordon, the shop’s expert watchmaker. “I have sold and repaired many types of Hamilton watches over the years, and find that the brand conveys a uniquely American sense of tradition and modernity, of the USA and of Europe. Many of my New York City customers see Hamilton as a uniquely American brand that both looks inward to America and outward to Europe, backwards to its history and forward to the future, at once American and at once European. For some, there is no finer signal of style than these uniquely American yet also European Hamilton watches.”
