Watch Description

What makes the Boston 416 unique: Today, we’re excited to introduce you to this incredible Waltham piece, the Boston 416. Originally manufactured in Waltham, Massachusetts, this watch will wow you with its bronze numerals, minimalist design, and our signature open back. The second indicator blends in flawlessly with the rest of the dial, giving the watch a smooth and clean look overall. Paired with our Cordovan Black leather strap with beige stitching, this watch provides its wearer with a sense of rustic elegance. Our Machined Bronze case compliments the watch beautifully, matching the bronze numerals on the face. This 217-grade watch is powered by 17 jewels, and the open back lets the wearer watch the gears tick along methodically. Waltham really outdid themselves on this one, and we are so grateful we could give this watch the life it once had. In the same year that Waltham produced this watch, the Gottfried Krueger Brewing Company of Richmond, Virginia sold the very first canned beer.

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.
