Watch Description

 What makes the Boston 010 unique: This was built for our collectors waiting for “the one.” Every single thing about this watch is rare. The dial is a nearly perfect double-sunk example made with grand feu enamel. The movement is a pristine example of the Waltham Maximus, one of their highest grades. With 23 jewels and stunning decoration on all components, you’ll have to take this off to show your friends the exhibition back. The movement and dial are also one of the older ones we’ve restored recently. It was built by Waltham in Massachusetts in 1903. Only 300 Maximus models were made in this style which is a small number considering the total production of the Waltham Watch Company was over 40,000,000 movements. We decided to use a steel case complete with a coin-edge bezel with a matte black DLC coating.

Movement Manufacturer Information

The movement inside of this watch was made by Waltham Watch Company. We call this model "The Boston" because of the company's proximity to the city.

Also known as American Watch Company and American Waltham Watch Company, Waltham was one of the leaders in attempting an entirely new concept, machines making machines. Prior to this, a watchmaker would hand-make each part of a movement one-at-a-time. Operating from 1851-1957, Waltham called its product the "Scientific Watch." Waltham's innovative, precise machining techniques made parts interchangeable, and their early version of the assembly line made high-quality watches efficient to produce. Legend has it that Henry Ford drew inspiration for his assembly line production from a visit to Waltham's factory. Located on the bank of the Charles River in "Watch City" (Waltham), Massachusetts, the factory has since been converted to apartment lofts.
