Watch Description

What makes the Boston 466 unique: Today, we’re thrilled to share this remarkable piece of history originally manufactured by the American Waltham Watch Company in 1925 — the Boston 466. The Boston 466’s antique pocket watch boasts an immaculate dial with a cream-colored background and a gray center. The front of the piece also showcases sumptuous, gold-colored numerals along with heavy violet moon watch hands. We complemented the pocket watch’s beautiful dial with our robust Sandblasted Titanium case and equipped it with a gold-plated crown, matching the dial’s numerals.
On the back of this stunning piece, you can view the original pocket watch’s 225-grade open-face movement with a micrometer regulator and Breguet hairspring. You can also see its breathtaking gold-plated gears and 17 screw-set jewels throughout its ¾ plate. Finally, we paired this one-of-a-kind watch with our comfortable Black leather watch strap, making the dial’s numerals and watch hands glimmer even more brilliantly.

The American Waltham Watch Company initially produced the Boston 466’s pocket watch in Waltham, Massachusetts, in 1925 — the same year Charles Francis Jenkins synchronized the transmission of sound and pictures. This remarkable innovation led to the invention of the first electronic television two years later by Philo Taylor Farnsworth, who was only 21 at the time. Charles Francis Jenkins went on to contribute even more to the advancement of television, including the Jenkins Television Corporation, which was the first U.S. television broadcasting station, and the Society of Motion Picture Engineers (SMPTE). In 2011, 77 years after his passing, Jenkins was inducted in the National Inventors Hall of Fame.

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.
