Watch Description

What makes the Boston 145 unique: Today we are happy to bring you this wonderful timepiece from the Waltham Watch Company, our Boston 145. We are absolutely in love with the layout and look of the dial on this watch. It is rare that we see a simplistic dial such as this without traditional numerals, and the gold-colored accents matched with the hands are absolutely stunning. The minute indicators around the outside add that extra flair and detail. A gold-coated crown and hardware compliment the dial and pair well with our Yukon strap. We went with our machined titanium case to bring attention and contrast the design elements of the face and are very happy with how it turned out. As if the outer appearance isn’t enough to show off, you will be taking this watch off to share the beauty of what is revealed beneath through our signature open-backed case. This large build plate has been carefully manufactured with a Rose Engine lathe to create this spectacular damaskeening all throughout. 17 screw-set and friction-set jewels keep everything running smoothly, while the gold-plated gears quietly reveal themselves beneath. This watch was originally produced in Waltham, Massachusetts in 1933. This is the very same year that the United States of America finally repealed the prohibition act, ending a 13-year drought of liquor sales during that time. America was still on its heels at this time, trying to come out of the Great Depression, and American Made products such as this one are part of the base that helped us climb back on our feet again.

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.
