Watch Description

What makes the Boston 027 unique: Getting a 21 in Blackjack is good. Getting a 21-jewel black Waltham conversion by Vortic is fantastic.

Our 45 mm steel case, machined in-house and coated with a stealthy and durable black DLC, complements the gilt dial's pinstripes and gold numerals, in their swirling, serif font worthy of any King or Queen.

The diamond kite hands have been maintained in their less-common dark burgundy heat treatment, giving the watch face a sophisticated and unique cohesion that is a 10 out of 10. 

However, this watch's real Ace-in-the-hole is its 21-jewel Waltham Riverside movement. In addition to its beautiful engraving and decoration, it is one of the highest-grade movements created by the American Waltham Watch Co., with a total production of only 15,000. It has a Breguet hairspring and has been completely serviced by our expert watchmakers and is ready to celebrate its 100th birthday on the wrist of a lucky individual who will feel like they hit the jackpot.

 

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.
