Watch Description

What makes the Boston 009 unique: The Roaring 20s were filled with jazz, dance, and speakeasies, all of which had a lasting impression on the art and culture of the United States. American craftsmanship was at its peak during this time, and Waltham was no exception, making many timepieces that fit the style and excitement of that era, like the Boston 009. With a meticulously carved dial and manually machined movement, Waltham captures the essence of the early 1920s in this watch. Now set in our stainless steel machined case, matching crown, and dark brown strap, you too can appreciate the beauty of this watch and carry a small piece of the Roaring 20s with you.

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.
