Watch Description

What makes the Boston 419 unique: Today, we are thrilled to introduce this remarkable piece from the American Waltham Watch Company — the Boston 419. Originally manufactured in 1925 by Waltham, the Boston 419 features a stunning watch dial, sleek type numbers, and an open-face back, revealing the intricate nickel gears with gold details. Some subtle aging on the dial reminds us of the history this watch has already experienced first-hand. To keep this watch preserved, our Machined Titanium case accentuates the artistry of the dial and has an incredibly durable and scratch-resistant coating. Powered by 17 jewels in screw settings, this 225-grade timepiece is exquisite. Lastly, our Natural leather strap brings the whole design together, matching the color of the dial design perfectly. This watch was originally produced in Waltham, Massachusetts, in 1925 — the same year that U.S. President Calvin Coolidge's inauguration was broadcast live on 21 radio stations.

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.
