Watch Description

What makes the Boston 435 unique: Today, we are thrilled to present the incredible Boston 435, originally manufactured by the American Waltham Watch Company. This piece is in superb condition and invokes a timeless, classic appeal paralleled by no other. Our Machined Titanium case beautifully encapsulates the clock dial and accentuates the modern, gold-type numbers. Paired with our Tobacco leather strap, this watch appears luminescent, casting off a golden glow. And, if that isn’t impressive enough, one look at the dial will tell you this watch is powered by 21 jewels, each screw-set with brass hardware. Flip the watch over, and you’ll see the gold-plated gears hard at work and a beautiful inscription on the bridge plate — ”Waltham U.S.A Riverside.” If you look closely, you can see the bridge plate is also adorned with machined curved patterns, which will catch your eye in the light. This watch was originally produced in Waltham, Massachusetts, in 1935 — the same year Disney released the first technicolor Mickey Mouse film, titled “The Band Concert.” This animated film pictures Mickey Mouse conducting an orchestra when suddenly, a tornado sweeps through the symphony hall, carrying the orchestra away. Later in 1994, it was voted as the third-best cartoon in history.

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.
