The Waltham Watch Company, also known as the American Waltham Watch Co., contributed greatly to the precision engineering of watch making machines. In operation from 1852-1957 many fine specimens of pocket watches came out of the Waltham factory. The vision of the company’s founders was to produce watches with machinery using interchangeable parts. By the early 1870s Waltham watches were winning prizes all over the world.
Through production Waltham found that even though they were using interchangeable parts, each watch was still unique and required its own corrections. We love the fact that every Waltham pocket watch has its own delightful peculiarity. We are dedicated to preserving the precision engineering of each and every Waltham pocket watch that comes into our specialist workshop.
Our Master Watchmaker understands the intricacies of each unique mechanism and is an expert in the repair and restoration of all vintage Waltham pocket watches. We know it is a privilege to work on such fine specimens of engineering, and we love nothing more than to bring an antique Waltham pocket watch back to life.
