Watch Description

What makes the Boston 433 unique: Today, we are excited to introduce this spectacular piece from the American Waltham Watch Company — the Boston 433. Originally manufactured in 1924 by Waltham, the Boston 433 features an alabaster watch dial, gold-type numbers, and a clear back, revealing the intricate gold-plated gears brass balance wheel. The gilded hands accentuate the gold-type numbers magnificently. Our bronze case with a custom-aged patina case adorns this aurous timepiece even further, complementing the whimsical type numbers. Powered by 17 jewels, this Royal-grade timepiece has an incredibly durable and scratch-resistant coating. Lastly, our Stone leather strap brings both unity and contrast to this beautiful piece. This watch was originally produced in Waltham, Massachusetts, in 1924 — the same year that Carl R. Taylor patented the first ice cream cone-rolling machine in Cleveland, Ohio. Having applied for the patent on February 16th, 1921, it took Carl a little more than 2 years and 11 months to obtain and successfully use the patent.

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.
