100 Years of Timing the Skies
Posted On: Tuesday, December 5, 2017
In 2018, Hamilton will celebrate an important milestone in our history as we mark our first century of timing the skies.
Hamilton has a prestigious history of serving the flying community and has been providing essential cockpit tools to pilots and co-pilots since the early days of flight. Watches are essential in aviation. Everything is based on accurate timing. Even modern pilots need a watch as a reliable backup to their digital multi-instrument display.
"John Bouwman, operator of the Clockmaker on John Street, is said to be the person who came up with the idea and Mrs. Carol Wardle of Wardle Insurance offered a generous contribution and before you knew it – the clock was a done deal."
I just took one of my husband's favourite watches in for repair. The watch had not worked for several years but John found the problem quickly and fixed it while I waited. I found John to be friendly and knowledgeable. Thanks for the great service!
