Watch Description

What makes the Boston 413 unique: We couldn’t be more excited to start off a week of great watches than with this absolutely stunning timepiece from the Waltham Watch Company, our Boston 413. We love this incredibly unique design in the center of the dial, nicely accented by these gold-colored numerals and bright blue full-moon hands. The attention to detail is astounding, and we love the level of craftsmanship that was displayed in these antique watches. We topped it off with copper hardware and a stout strap that ties everything together. As if the front of this watch isn’t enough to grab your attention, this movement inside will beg to be shown off. A lovely pattern has been machined all across the different build plates, keeping the eye moving around to explore each and every small detail. This Royal movement from Waltham displays 17 press-fit jewels, with copper settings. Gold-plated gears and a brass balance wheel show through from beneath, while stainless steel hardware holds everything in place. This watch was originally produced by the Waltham Watch Company in Waltham, Massachusetts in 1924 among a small run of 5,000 others similar to it. On November 4th of this year, the very first woman governor was elected in Wyoming. Nellie Tayloe Ross served as governor until November of 1926 and remains the only female governor ever to serve in Wyoming. She later was appointed as the head of the U.S. Mint and was also the first woman to ever hold that position.

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.
