Watch Description

What makes the Boston 424 unique: Today, we are proud to present this marvelous piece from the American Waltham Watch Company — the Boston 424. Originally manufactured in 1923 by Waltham, the Boston 424 features a luxurious watch dial, sleek-type numbers, and an open back, revealing the intricate stainless steel gears with gold details. The artwork's symmetry resembles a mesmerizing pinwheel blooming in the springtime. Powered by 19 jewels, this watch features our Machined Titanium case, which spotlights the luster of the dial spectacularly. This Riverside-grade timepiece has an incredibly durable and scratch-resistant coating built to preserve its history. Lastly, our Cordovan Black leather strap brings unity to this remarkable timepiece. This watch was originally produced in Waltham, Massachusetts, in 1923 — the same year Icebound premiered in NYC. Owen Davis, the playwright, won the 1923 Pulitzer Prize for Drama in this autobiographical masterpiece. Owen Davis wrote and produced more than a hundred plays in his lifetime, and in 1923, he also won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Movement Manufacturer Information

The movement inside of this watch was made by Burlington Watch Company. We call this model "The Burlington" because the company was located in Burlington, Illinois.

The Burlington Watch Company is unique in the sense that it did not manufacture its own watches. Only operating from 1908-1925, the Illinois Watch Company actually produced the vast majority of Burlington brand watches. The company sold watches by mail order on credit with payment plans. The called themselves the anti-trust watch saying that other companies fixed prices and forced consumers to pay extra because of the middleman. Their goal was to make high-quality watches available to those who couldn't normally afford them.
