Watch Description

What makes the Boston 417 unique: We are delighted to bring you this beautiful watch from the Waltham Watch Company, our Boston 417. The crisp, clean dial with large bold numerals grabs your attention right away, drawing you in to notice the red minute indicators that surround the dial. This watch exudes class and stands out with this absolutely timeless look. Machined titanium for the case, with a nickel-plated crown and our black cordovan strap. As we turn this watch over to reveal the movement within, we are captivated by this incredible movement and the 19 screw-set jewels that are neatly on display. This Riverside grade movement has been carefully machined all across the different build plates to keep your eye moving all around and taking in the finer details. Gold-plated gears hide beneath, as well as a brass balance wheel that adds to the overall look and feel of this incredible watch. This watch was originally produced all the way back in 1902, but the Waltham Watch Company in Waltham, Massachusetts. In April of this year, the very first movie theater in the United States opens in Los Angeles. The theater was built by Thomas Lincoln Tally and was named the Electric Theater.

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.
