Watch Description

What makes the Boston 436 unique: Today, we’re excited to present you this stunning and pristine watch initially manufactured by the American Waltham Watch Company — the Boston 436. Originally created in 1910, this watch features an immaculate white dial background with dark blue minute and hour hands. The dial also features light-red minute indicators, contrasting the distinct and elegantly-designed hour numerals. The watch also features a perfectly matching subdial that reinforces its simple yet classic style. We matched the pocket watch’s sophisticated original design with our Machined Titanium case and nickel-plated crown. The combination conveys a highly refined piece of fashion and history. Our case also features a clear back that reveals its impressive open-face movement. The back of the watch displays a highly stylized “W.W.Co.” engraving, which conveys its authenticity. 17 jewels and gold-plated gears power this one-of-a-kind piece. We further reinforced the watch’s elegant style by equipping it with our artisan-crafted natural leather watch strap. The American Waltham Watch Company initially produced this watch in Waltham, Massachusetts, in 1910 — the same year that William D. Boyce founded the Boy Scouts of America. Boyce was inspired to form Boy Scouts of America from his interaction with a boy in London in 1909. Boyce was lost when an anonymous member of the UK’s Boy Scout Association assisted him and helped him reach his destination. Boyce attempted to tip the boy, now known as the “Unknown Scout,” but he refused and stated that he was doing his “daily good turn,” referring to the Scout’s slogan, “Do a Good Turn Daily.” Boyce founded the Boy Scouts of America four months later on February 8, 1910.

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.
