Hamilton and I go way back. I used to live in Lancaster, PA, the birthplace of the Hamilton Watch Company for a couple of decades. I have visited the historical Hamilton buildings (now the Clock Towers Apartments) many times and have talked to many former Hamilton USA employees.
I have also become a collector of Hamilton timepieces, owning several early Hamiltons (including some pocket watches) and a few modern watches, including an Elvis 80 Ventura. Because of my love for Hamilton, I have a special relationship with the people at the modern day Hamilton, and every year they invite me to view the new collection before anyone else has a chance.
This year, we met in Morges, Switzerland, at a beautiful B&B and restaurant called La Maison d’Igor.
There, Hamilton president Sylvain Dolla and his team were waiting for us, ready to show us all the newness and let us take pictures on the grounds.
