About Hamilton Electric Watches
The maker of the world's first electric watch, Hamilton is also part of the world's biggest watch producer, the Swatch Group, and has been manufacturing watches since 1893. The Hamilton electric watch was a revolutionary timekeeping technology that aspired for greater accuracy in telling time and ease of use compared to mechanically operated watches. Named the Hamilton Electric 500, the watch's electromagnetic technology and the use of a battery driven solenoid was a big shift in the watchmaking industry, which soon saw another jump in the form of quartz watches.
