Hamilton Watch Repair
The Hamilton Watch Co. started up in Lancaster, PA in the middle 1890’s from the start, it positioned itself as a manufacturer of quality watches. For about 50 years, over 50% of the pocket watches it produced were the high grade necessary for use in the railroad market. At least two of its railroad grade watches were produced in quantities of more than a half of a million each over a period of decades. Hamilton was successful through the 1920s, buying the Illinois Watch Co. in 1928. Production ceased in the U.S. in 1969, although watches were still be assembled from parts and finished for several more years. The Swatch group now owns it.
If you want your fine timepiece to last a lifetime you should have it serviced regularly. Hamilton recommends this be done every 3-5 years. Here are the 2 types of repair Hamilton recommends.

About Midtown Manhattan, New York City, NY
A little history about midtown Manhattan, specifically the first-ever celebration of New Year’s Eve in Times Square.
This inaugural bash commemorated the official opening of the new headquarters of The New York Times in midtown Manhattan, New York City. The newspaper’s owner, German Jewish immigrant Alfred Ochs, had successfully lobbied the city to rename Longacre Square, the district surrounding his paper’s new home, in honor of the famous publication (a contemporary article in The New York Times credited Interborough Rapid Transit Company President August Belmont for suggesting the change to the Rapid Transit Commission). The impressive Times Tower, marooned on a tiny triangle of land at the intersection of 7th Avenue, Broadway and 42nd Street, was at the time Manhattan’s second-tallest building — the tallest if measured from the bottom of its three massive sub-basements, built to handle the heavy weight demands of The Times’ up-to-date printing equipment.
