The Waltham Watch Company, also known as the American Waltham Watch Co. and the American Watch Co., produced about 40 million high quality watches, clocks, speedometers, compasses, time fuses, and other precision instruments between 1850 and 1957. The company's historic manufacturing facilities in Waltham, Massachusetts have been preserved as the American Waltham Watch Company Historic District.

In 1850, at Roxbury, Massachusetts, David Davis, Edward Howard, and Aaron Lufkin Dennison formed the company that would later become the Waltham Watch Company. Their revolutionary business plan was to manufacture the movement parts of watches so precisely that they would become fully interchangeable. Based upon the experience of earlier failed trials, Howard and Dennison eventually perfected and patented their precision watch making machines, creating the what has been called the American System of Watch Manufacturing.

THE COMPANY NAME WOULD CHANGE SEVERAL TIMES AT LEAST UNTIL:

WalthamWatchCompany.jpg

American Waltham Watch Company

In 1885 the company name changed to the American Waltham Watch Company (AWWCo). Under this name, the company would produce some of the finest examples of pocket watches ever created.

 

Waltham Watch Company

In 1907 the company name changed to Waltham Watch Co. (WWCo), in 1923 briefly to the Waltham Watch and Clock Company and finally in 1925 to the Waltham Watch Company (WWC)

Two high-quality groups of watches were produced by the company for orders placed by the Canadian Pacific Railway. One large group has the shield and beaver emblem of the Railway engraved on the movements, and is known as the "CPR" type. The second group has "Canadian Railway Time Service" engraved on the movements, and is known as the "CRTS" type. They are both highly prized by collectors.

Waltham Precision Instruments Company

The company closed its factory doors and declared bankruptcy in 1949, although the factory briefly reopened a few times, primarily to finish and case existing watch inventory for sale. Several different plans were presented to restart the business, but all failed for various reasons. In 1958, the company got out of the consumer watch business completely, and reorganized into the Waltham Precision Instruments Company. All remaining watch inventory had been sold to the Hallmark Watch Company the previous year, and rights to the "Waltham" trademark were sold to a new Waltham Watch Company incorporated in Delaware in exchange for stock.

Specialized clocks and chronographs for use in aircraft control panels continued to be made in the Waltham factory by the Waltham Precision Instruments Company until the company was sold in 1994. The company is now based in Alabama, as the Waltham Aircraft Clock Corporation.

SO, FOR ALL PRACTICAL HISTORY, THE COMPAY KNOWN AS WALTHAM WENT OUT OF BUSINESS 1949/50. THE FACT IS, WWII WOULD BE THEDOWNFALL OF AMERICAN WATCH MANUFACTURING. BEFORE WWII, AMERICA WAS THE GREATEST. AMERICA CONCEIVED AND BLOSSOMED HUGE FACTORIS WITH FINE MASS PRODUCTION.

WWII CAME AND ALL FACTORIES OF AL MAKERS RETOOLEDTO MAKE INSTRUMENTS, SPECIALY MIL WATCHES, FUSES. BOMBING EQUIPMEMNT, AIRCRAFT AND SHIP EQUIPMEMNT, TIMERS.   YET SWTIZERLAND WAS NEUTRAL. THEY CNTINUED TO MAKE WATCHES FORTHE PUBLIC IN ALL COUNTRIES., AT END OF WWII, AMERICAN COMPANIES REQUIRED SEVERALYEARSTO RETOIOL, DURINGTHIS TIME SWISSCOMPANIES WERE 5 YEARS PREPARED TO SWEEP IN AND CAPTURE MARKET SHARE....
