Watch Description

What makes the Boston 378 unique: Today we welcome you to the beautiful Boston 378, an exquisite timepiece originally manufactured by the Waltham Watch Company in 1924. We love the look of this dial and the subtle aged features that give this antique watch a great deal of character. We wanted to keep the focus on these copper colored numerals, and accented them with these amazing open-kite hands. Our gold plated crown carries through the precious metal look, while the tone of this natural strap ties everything together nicely. The inside of this watch is featured with a Royal Grade Waltham movement, adorned with 17 magnificent jewels. The intricate machining of the different build plates and surfaces keep visual interest exploring each and every detail inside this watch. Gold plated gears beneath peak through and contrast the bright nickel elements throughout. January 25th of 1924, was the debut of the very first Winter Olympics. They took place in Chamonix, France in the French Alps.

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.
