Watch Description

What makes the Boston 484 unique: Today we are very excited to release this truly special timepiece from the Waltham Watch Company, our Boston 484. We love the look of this incredibly unique dial with these dark blue hands, featuring a heavy moon hour hand and whip minute hand. The contrast of these dark hands against the soft toned dial and gold-colored numerals is sure to grab your attention and bring you in for a closer look. Our gold-plated crown and hardware completes the look and ties everything together perfectly inside of our sandblasted titanium case. As we turn this watch over to reveal the movement inside, we are absolutely astonished by the quality and condition of this incredibly old timepiece. All of these intricate patterns machined into the build plate were created using a Rose-Engine lathe and we love how the design keeps your eye moving all around the entire piece continuously. Underneath we see the gold-plated gears that keep everything moving correctly, pivoting on 17 press-set jewels. A nice visual balance of nickel-plating and precious metals makes this watch stand out and is a testament to the craftsmanship of the time.

This watch was originally produced in 1927 in Waltham, Massachusetts by the Waltham Watch Company. The Bugatti Type B, released in 1927, is a highly sought-after classic car among collectors. It was the first Bugatti model to be powered by a supercharged engine, which was designed by Ettore Bugatti himself. The engine was a 3-liter straight eight, capable of producing an impressive 180 horsepower. The Type B was also the first Bugatti to feature a 4-speed gearbox, and its design was revolutionary for the time. It was incredibly light and aerodynamic, with a top speed of more than 100 mph. The Bugatti Type B is considered to be one of the most iconic cars of the 20th century, and it is a symbol of luxury and performance.

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.
