Watch Description

What makes the Boston 407 unique: Today we have the pleasure to bring you this beautiful timepiece from the Waltham Watch Company, our Boston 407. We absolutely love how this iridescent blue case houses this incredibly unique dial perfectly, bringing attention to the fine details in this coat of arms design. The gothic-style numerals bring a nice touch to the design and stand out to grab your attention and draw you in. These stunning full-moon hands work perfectly inside of this case, topped off with our nickel-plated crown and stone strap. As we peer inside this watch to take a closer look at the movement, we are amazed at the fine details that have been carefully machined into the different build plates all throughout. Gold-plated gears and a brass balance wheel stand out from the nickel-plated elements and add layers of precious metal accents. 17 friction-set jewels keep everything running smoothly and give an extra visual appeal that is sure to amaze. This watch was originally produced in 1924 by the American Waltham Watch Company in Waltham, Massachusetts. In February of this year, Calvin Coolidge became the first President to deliver an address from the White House via the Radio.

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.
