Watch Description

What makes the Boston 482 unique: We are happy to present to you this beautiful watch from the Waltham Watch Company, our Boston 482. This watch is stunning, with its bright golden-yellow dial that grabs your attention immediately, and draws you in to examine this sub-second dial that lies beneath the main dial. The titanium case is machined to perfection, giving it a sleek and modern look that will never go out of style. The nickel-plated crown adds a touch of elegance, while the rye leather strap provides a comfortable fit. As we turn this watch over we are once again drawn in to examine the fine details and incredible craftsmanship of this movement. The different design elements that have been carefully machined across all the build plates keep your eye moving throughout and drawing you into the gold-plated gears and 17 beautiful jewels. This watch will be a cherished heirloom for years to come, and it will be sure to turn heads wherever you go.

This timepiece was originally manufactured in 1928 by the American Waltham Watch Company in Waltham, Massachusetts. In 1928, the world was introduced to one of the most famous and beloved characters of all time - Mickey Mouse. On November 18, 1928, the first Mickey Mouse cartoon, Steamboat Willie, was released in New York City and became an instant success. The cartoon featured Mickey Mouse (voiced by Walt Disney himself) and his girlfriend Minnie Mouse, along with a host of other characters. The cartoon was an instant hit and Mickey Mouse quickly became a worldwide phenomenon. He has since become an iconic symbol of Disney and has been featured in hundreds of cartoons, television shows, movies, and video games.

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.
