    Hamilton's original, 1928, edition of the Piping Rock was named for a New York State resort and was one of only three from Hamilton with an enameled bezel. The Piping Rock was reintroduced in 1948 with stronger, wider lugs that were less prone to hinge wear; both versions are highly collectible.
