Watch Description

What makes the Boston 412 unique: Today we proudly present this beautiful watch from the Waltham Watch Company, our Boston 412. We are immediately drawn in by these wonderful small flower decorative designs that are placed throughout the dial, pairing well with our gold-plated crown and hardware. These bold, full-moon hands stand out against this stark white face and bring attention to these classic numerals. We placed this watch inside our sandblasted titanium case and finished it off with a black cordovan strap. As we turn this watch over to reveal the movement within, we are amazed by the level of craftsmanship that has created these amazing designs that carry our visual interest all around the different build plates. Gold-plated gears and a brass balance wheel show through from beneath, with 17 press-fit jewels to keep everything turning on track nicely. This watch was originally manufactured by the Waltham Watch Company in Waltham, Massachusetts in 1922. On February 9th of this year, Mauna Loa, Hawaii saw a very rare snowfall which shocked the residents. Many unprepared locals suffered from frostbite and a few ended up with permanent damage from this rare weather occurrence.

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.
