The American Watch Co. Grade • 40 Years of Excellence

The American Watch Co. Grade • 40 Years of Excellence
The Waltham Watch Company was the first successful watch factory and was responsible for many of the key innovations in watchmaking in America. In 1859 the name of the company was changed to the American Watch Co. following the merger of the Waltham Improvement Co. and the Appleton & Tracy Co. In the same year Waltham sold its first watches with American Watch Co. as the grade name on the watch. This grade name was used on many models and sizes of watches that always represented the very best product the company could make. The 1899 Bridge Model was the last of these designs to be produced. This talk explores the nine models produced over this 40 year period in the American Watch Co. grade.
