The Hamilton Electric wristwatch was introduced in 1957, and was a smashing success. Although many unique case designs were used, the "Ventura" and "Pacer" models came to characterize the Hamilton Electric. The Hamilton Electric was repopularized several years ago by the movie, "Men in Black," which featured the model extensively! Unfortunately, the electric wristwatch technology introduced by Hamilton in 1957 would be challenged by the tuning fork technology within a decade, which itself was quickly supplanted by the development of quartz technology in the late 1960's. The Hamilton Electrics remain as a relic of horological history, a brief reminder of a unique stop in the evolution of timekeeping technology. Here's the details on this uniquely attractive art deco timepiece of horological history!
