Collection Spotlight: Hamilton Ventura Watches

Our June brand of the month, Hamilton, is iconic, daring and bold. Featuring shield-shaped dials and a vintage aesthetic, their Ventura timepiece became the first electrical, battery powered watch in 1957. Today’s Ventura designs are almost identical to the 1950s models. Explore two of the renditions below:

Ventura Quartz

The Ventura Quartz features a stainless steel case and a black calf leather strap. The Mid-Century Modern design celebrates the 1950s, paying homage to the era in which the watch was born. Since it’s inception, it has quickly become a collector’s piece, and one of the most coveted Hamilton models.

On June 14th, the Ventura Quartz will take on its latest adventure, as Agent M, played by Tessa Thompson, sports the timepiece while she fights off aliens in the new Men in Black International movie. As imperative to their uniform as the black suit and sunglasses, the Hamilton Ventura has appeared in every Men in Black movie.

Ventura Auto

Hamilton’s Ventura Auto features a see-through case back and open worked dial, offering a peak at the watch’s brilliant innerworkings.

In stainless steel and brown calf leather, this model will also be featured in the upcoming Men in Black International movie, worn by Agent H played by Chris Hemsworth.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Scott joined Feldmar Watch Company, Inc. under the tutelage of his father, Sol. As a fourth generation family member, Scott’s forward-thinking business acumen has placed Feldmar on the cutting edge of the luxury timepiece market. Scott’s favorite part about working at Feldmar is being a part of his family’s multi-generational business and having worked alongside his father. His accomplishments are many, including the expansion and remodel of the Feldmar flagship store, as well as a second location inside The Beverly Hilton.

Since attending Santa Monica College, Scott has become an expert in the technical aspects of the timepieces sold at Feldmar. Each year, he travels to Switzerland—the watchmaking capital of the world—to attend the Baselword Watch & Jewelry Fair and build upon his extensive knowledge of this quickly-evolving industry.

Scott is very proud of the way Feldmar customers are put first: “We regularly go out of our way to meet the needs of our clients. A client once purchased a rather significant watch as a birthday gift for his brother who lived in New York. Our client asked how we were going to deliver the gift and we responded with the typical answer, we would ship it by FedEx. After we answered his question, we could tell that he wanted a more personalized experience for the delivery and offered to have it hand-delivered by one of our associates. He lit up at the thought, and so off went one of our associates to New York City for the day to hand-deliver the gift.”
