Watch Description

What makes the Boston 356 unique: We are very happy to bring you this amazing timepiece from the Waltham Watch Company. This watch is an especially old example, originally manufactured in Waltham, Massachusetts 114 years ago in 1907. We absolutely love the aged look of this conversion dial, meaning this watch used to be a hunting style which has the crown at 3 and moved it to be up at the 12 position. Gothic style gold-colored numerals and a gold-plated crown go well together and pair nicely with our machined titanium case. These blued-steel hands contrast well on the soft look of the dial and bring a nice amount of color to the design. As we turn the watch over to expose the movement powering this watch, we are delighted by the array of design work that went into the manufacturing of this watch. The bright shimmer of the different designs that have been carefully machined onto the build plate draws the eye in and creates a nice balance of visual movement. Adorned with 17 screw-set jewels as well as rose-gold gears that shine through from beneath. The same year that this watch entered the marketplace, was also the same year that Pike’s Place Public Market opened for Business in Seattle, Washington.

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.
