Watch Description

What makes the Boston 014 unique: Featuring a 1924 Waltham pocket watch, the Boston 014 playfully illustrates the artistry and precision of American watch manufacturing. A bronze-colored dial is contrasted by silver texturing, gold Art Deco numerals, and a metallic subdial. The original 17-jewel movement mimics this multidimensional design with its gold-plated gears, brass jewel settings, and intricate engraving details. We've played with the complexity of this piece by pairing it with our machined stainless steel case and a coin edged bronze bezel and crown, and completed the look with an oxblood Cordovan leather strap. 

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.
