Born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Hamilton Watches has maintained its reputation as a landmark watch brand for more than 130 years. Originally known for its creation of pocket watches, the brand changed the course of history through its contribution to timekeeping for railroad workers, military members, and airplane pilots. Since then, it has expanded to become the go-to supplier for more than 500 different films and productions, and has created an abundance of iconic timepieces that can be recognized anywhere.

The company’s rich American heritage, and its participation in memorable cultural moments—from creating the triangle-shaped watch adored by Elvis to a Bolton used in Indiana Jones—have made its watches go-to holiday gifts for years.

Here, four classic timepieces that’ll make a fabulous gift for everyone on your list.

For the Techie Dad

If your dad is always snagging the latest and greatest gadgets, the PSR is a wonderful statement piece. With a sleek, cool-metal design, this watch calls back to the advent of digital wristwatches while maintaining a futuristic design aesthetic.

For the Mom Who Has It All

The posh Jazzmaster Performer looks extremely elegant on a smaller wrist type, and it begs to be layered with more of your favorite jewelry. This makes the striking 34-millimeter blue bracelet the ideal gift for the most important women in your life.

For the Sibling Who Loves the Outdoors

Know an adrenaline junkie on the prowl for their next adventure? The Expedition is the perfect gift for your outdoor-loving family member. It can be worn for a multitude of activities, ranging from climbing to hiking, and looks great with coordinating workout sets. Not to mention, the compass bezel is really neat.

For the Movie Buff Grandparent

Have a friend or family member who makes film references every chance they get? If so, they’ll adore practically any watch from Hamilton. Still, the movie-inspired Murph is your best bet. The collectible was modeled after the watch that appeared in Interstellar on the wrist of the main character, also named Murph.
