Watch Description

What makes the Boston 238 unique: For a week with such unique and special dials, we are capping it off with this breathtaking watch from the Waltham Watch Company. Here we have our Boston 238. Featuring this absolutely amazing ornate dial that truly makes this watch stand out and steal the show. Accented with dark-maroon full-moon hands that pair perfectly with our merlot strap, and capped off with our copper crown and hardware. We used a sandblasted titanium case to not overpower the soft look and subtleties of this delicate dial. We are delighted by the elegance and classic feel of this movement, with 17 jewels powering the gold-plated gears and brass balance wheel. This signature build plate design has been carefully machined all throughout to carry the visual balance and keep your eye moving around the multiple surfaces. A true masterpiece of its time, originally manufactured in Waltham, Massachusetts in 1924. The first successful around-the-world flight began in the United States in April 1924, returning to its start point in September. The trip took 175 days, and covered 27,553 miles.

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.
