Watch Description

What makes the Boston 428 unique: Today, we are excited to introduce this incredible piece from the American Waltham Watch Company — the Boston 428. Originally manufactured in 1933 by Waltham, the Boston 428 features a gilded watch dial, gold-type numbers, and a clear back, revealing the intricate stainless steel gears with gold-plated details. The dial and subdial are adorned with a luminous shine, complementing the watch magnificently. Our Diamond-Like Coating (DLC) case accentuates the golden numbers wonderfully and brings out the lustrous shine of the aurous hands. Powered by 17 jewels, this 1235-grade timepiece has an incredibly durable and scratch-resistant coating. Lastly, our Tobacco leather strap brings unity to this powerful piece. This watch was originally produced in Waltham, Massachusetts, in 1933 — the same year that Minnie D. Craig became the Speaker of the North Dakota House of Representatives and was the first female elected for a speaker position in the United States. She served for six terms and was known for being thorough, uplifting, and inspirational in the harsh world of politics.

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.
