Watch Description

What makes the Boston 394 unique: Today we bring you this fantastic timepiece originally from the Waltham Watch Company, our Boston 394. There is something truly special about finding these antique watches with such clean and pristine dials that stand out so nicely. We absolutely love the modern feel of this watch, with a dial that also features red minute indicators all around the outside of the numerals. Our sandblasted titanium case completes the look with this soft appearance that lets the small details shine through. Our copper crown blends perfectly with this natural strap and copper hardware throughout. We are mesmerized by the movement that powers this watch, with such exquisite detail in the carefully machined patterns all throughout the build plates. The visual movement that is created by the damaskeened patterns will keep your eye exploring all the different layers of complexity that make up this beautiful watch. 17 jewels help turn the rose-gold gears beneath, with stainless steel hardware keeping everything in place nicely. This watch was originally produced in Waltham, Massachusetts all the way back in 1917. In March of this year, Jeanette Rankin of Montana became the first woman member of the United States House of Representatives.

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.
