The Waltham Watch Co

The Waltham Watch Co. (American Watch Co.) existed from 1850 to 1957 and produced 35 to 40 million precision implements, including various watch types, during that period.
The first watches were produced in 1852, but the company didn’t release them for sale immediately. The first Waltham watch was sold in 1853. Waltham was the first manufacturer in the US that mass-produce watch movements, lowering their prices and increasing productivity. Their production lines manufactured all precise and interchangeable watch parts, making new models quality. After founding the company, watchmakers Aaron Dennison, David Davis, and Edward Howard started producing 16S and 18S models with key-wound movements. After Appleton Tracy & Co purchased the company at auction in 1857, Appleton’s first pocket watch with all standardized parts appeared on the market. The company closed its doors in 1957, but one Swiss company owns its shares and still produces watches. You can effortlessly find modern quartz models with Waltham’s name, but they are not from the genuine American watchmaker company. That is why antique and vintage models are so much in demand. Although they stopped working long ago, the Waltham watch company is still the symbol of luxury and superior craftsmanship. Most Americans believe that it represents a valuable part of American history and collect their products manufactured for more than a century.
