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. 

100 Years of Timing the Skies

In 2017, Hamilton became the Official Timekeeper of the Red Bull Air Race, the new dimension of motorsport. The championship focuses on speed and precision and requires split-second timing. The pilots use the fastest, most agile and lightweight racing planes to navigate the low–level aerial tracks at high speed. With this partnership, Hamilton is at the forefront of the most exciting branch of aviation. 

In Canada, Hamilton is also is the Timekeeping sponsor of some of the most prestigious Canadian Aviation organization as ATAC (Air Transport Association of Canada), the Air & Army Cadet League of Canada, the DCAM (David Charles Abramson Memorial) & Northern Lights Aero Foundation.
Hamilton is proud to celebrate our first century of timing the skies.

And the Clockmaker is proud to be an authorized dealer for these timepieces.  Click here to get in touch with us about Hamilton watches that are available for sale.

Customer Testimonial

I went to this shop last week to get my antique wall clock fixed. It was bonging the wrong time. I received wonderful service from John and his associate. Not only was he able to fix my clock, he showed me how to reset it when it bongs the wrong time. Excellent shop and excellent service. I would not hesitate to bring my clock here.
