Today, we are excited to introduce this incredible piece from the American Waltham Watch Company — the Boston 427. Originally manufactured in 1924 by Waltham, the Boston 427 features a classic watch dial, sleek-type numbers, and a clear back, revealing the intricate stainless steel gears with gold-plated details. Our Machined Titanium case complements the dial beautifully, bringing out the subtle violet coloring on the rustic hands.
Powered by 17 jewels that decorate this 1235-grade timepiece. Lastly, our Cordovan Black leather strap brings this piece together and gives it a modern flare. This watch was originally produced in Waltham, Massachusetts, in 1924 — the same year that KGO-AM began its radio transmissions in San Francisco, CA. KGO-AM was powered by 1,000 watts when it opened and was known as the “Sunset Station.” The programs consisted of performances, music, and skits.
We are proud to present this remarkable piece from the Illinois Watch Company — the Springfield 476. Originally manufactured in 1930 by the Illinois Watch Company, the Springfield 476 features a stunning dial design, gold-type numbers, and a clear display case that reveals the intricate stainless steel gears with bronze details. The artwork on the dial border is separated into four segments and serves as a placeholder for the 3-hour increments in our day. The contrast of the dial complements the blue hands wonderfully, and our Machined Titanium case preserves the history of this exquisite piece.
Powered by 21 jewels, this 121-grade timepiece is a very unique and rare Santa Fe Special, named for the Sante Fe Railroad line. Lastly, our Mojave leather strap brings the whole piece together. This watch was originally produced in Springfield, Illinois, in 1930 — the same year that the 1st diesel engine automobile trip was completed. This trip was a marketing tactic used to promote the diesel engine by mounting the engine in a used Packard Touring Car and driving it to the National Automobile Show.
We are excited to introduce this incredible piece from the American Waltham Watch Company — the Boston 428. Originally manufactured in 1933 by Waltham, the Boston 428 features a gilded watch dial, gold-type numbers, and a clear back, revealing the intricate stainless steel gears with gold-plated details. The dial and subdial are adorned with a luminous shine, complementing the watch magnificently. Our Diamond-Like Coating (DLC) case accentuates the golden numbers wonderfully and brings out the lustrous shine of the aurous hands.
Powered by 17 jewels, this 1235-grade timepiece has an incredibly durable and scratch-resistant coating. Lastly, our Tobacco leather strap brings unity to this powerful piece. This watch was originally produced in Waltham, Massachusetts, in 1933 — the same year that Minnie D. Craig became the Speaker of the North Dakota House of Representatives and was the first female elected for a speaker position in the United States. She served for six terms, and was known for being thorough, uplifting, and inspirational in the harsh world of politics.
We are excited to introduce this stunning piece from the Hamilton Watch Company — the Lancaster 128. Originally manufactured in 1926 by the Hamilton Watch Company, the Lancaster 128 features an alabaster dial design, sleek-type numbers, and a clear display case that reveals the intricate, stainless steel gears with gold-plated details. The ornate artwork on the dial complements the watch wonderfully and is stunning to the eye. Our Machined Titanium case complements the dial and subdial exceptionally, letting some of the fine details show through.
Powered by 17 jewels in screw settings, this 912-grade timepiece is a historical masterpiece. Lastly, our Moss leather strap brings out the deep blue in the hands, tying the whole piece together. This watch was originally produced in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, in 1926 — the same year land at Broadway and Wall Street sold at a record of $7 per square inch! Today, the cost would be approximately $110 per square inch. For reference, one square foot of land contains 144 square inches, equaling a total of $15,840 to purchase one square foot of land at Broadway and Wall Street today!
We are proud to introduce this spectacular piece from the Illinois Watch Company — the Springfield 475. Originally manufactured in 1921 by the Illinois Watch Company, the Springfield 475 features an amber watch face design, bold-type numbers, and a clear display case that reveals the intricate stainless steel gears with brass and gold-plated details. When we look at the back, we can see luminous streaks of gold coursing through the bridge plate. Our Bronzed Titanium case complements the amber dial wonderfully while preserving the history of this exquisite piece with its incredibly durable and scratch-resistant coating.
Powered by 17 jewels, this 405-grade timepiece is a true marvel. Lastly, our Cordovan Black leather strap connects the whole piece by accentuating the blued-steel hands magnificently. This watch was originally produced in Springfield, Illinois, in 1921 — the same year that the DeYoung Museum in Golden Gate Park reopened. Originally opened in 1895, the Great Earthquake of 1906 caused significant damage to the building, forcing closure for repairs. From 1921 onwards, the DeYoung Museum weathered one more earthquake, was forced to close and came back with the help of a successful multimillion-dollar fundraising campaign.
