While the United States is a manufacturing giant in most industries, few major watch companies have come out of the U.S. However, Waltham, based in Waltham, Massachusetts, produced thousands of fine timepieces for well over 100 years. From Abrahams Lincoln’s Waltham pocket watch to the navigational instruments on the Apollo spacecraft, to the the thousands of watches they manufactured, Waltham has quietly been been at the forefront of American history for much of its existence. This particular watch from Waltham pairs American design and heritage with a beautifully crafted Swiss mechanical movement. It features a modest yet dazzling combination of a sleek nickel plated case and a beautifully brushed silver sunburst dial. Perhaps the first thing that catches your eye though, is the starkly obvious red tip of the sweeping seconds hand or the white date presented at the 3-o’clock position. As you appreciate the classic styling of this gorgeous watch, you can’t help but also appreciate the ticking American icon on your wrist.
