Watch Description

What makes the Boston 015 unique: The Waltham Watch Company, also known as the American Waltham Watch Company, manufactured about 40 million pocket watches, clocks, and other precision instruments between 1850 and 1957. The pocket watch within this conversion was produced by Waltham in 1914 and clearly showcases the company's commitment to high-quality craftsmanship. A radiant cream-colored dial with raised gold numerals and unique textural elements is accented by blued steel moon hands. Our machined stainless steel case with open case back reveals an ornately decorated movement engraved with the original manufacturer's initials. We paired this piece with a tan leather strap for a comfortable and eye-catching conversation piece for your wrist. 

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.
