In 1850 the American Waltham Watch Company opened its doors in Roxbury Massachusetts. Although it has been through much change of hands and many names, the company was started originally started by the trio of Edward Howard, David Davis and Aaron Dennison. They initially called the company the American Horologue Company. This company was one of the first companies in the U.S. to mass produce watches as well as producing some of the most varied types of watches. It is said that this company produced more than 35 million watches during its history.
If you are a collector of pocket watches you may come across watches that may be marked differently, yet can still be from the Waltham Watch Company. The original 17 prototype watches had the movements engraved with “Howard, Davis & Dennison.” Other markings may include, “Warren,” from when the company was changed to the Boston Watch Company in 1854, “Appleton, Tracy & Company” when the company was purchased by Royal Robbins, “The American Watch Company,” after a merger with Waltham Improvement Company. Finally in the 1860’s the watches bore the name “Waltham,” after the company changed its name to the American Waltham Watch Company.
