Watch Description

What makes the Boston 018 unique: Featuring a 1912 American Waltham Watch Company pocket watch, the Boston 018 truly is a conversation starter with layers of detail to discover and share. A clean white double-sunk dial features a rare five minute track and a distinctive font used for the original brand name. Blued steel moon hands accent the classic dial and draw the eye outward to a striking navy leather strap. We've paired this piece with a stainless steel case, polished bezel, and open case back through which you can see the ornately decorated movement.

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.
