Watch Description

What makes the Boston 384 unique: For Today’s Watch of the Day we happily present this gorgeous example from the Waltham Watch Company, our Boston 384. We really enjoy these gold-colored numerals that stand out and decided to add a gold-plated crown and Yukon strap to carry the color throughout. The tones of the dial work well with our sandblasted titanium case, and let these beautiful full-moon hands stand out and grab your attention. The fine details continue inside this movement, with finely machined elements of the different build plates all throughout to keep your eye moving around and exploring the inner workings of this watch. Gold-plated gears shine through from beneath the bridge plate, while the 17 press-fit jewels bring a touch of color to the overall polished and shiny appearance. This watch was originally manufactured in Waltham, Massachusetts by the Waltham Watch Company in 1924. In November of this year, Colonel John R. White recorded the last known sighting of a California Grizzly bear at Sequoia National Park.

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.
