Brief History: American Waltham Watch Company Including Serial Numbers and Production Dates. 1851 – 1957 Waltham, Massachusetts. The American Waltham Watch Company had its beginnings in 1850 in Roxbury, Massachusetts. The company was founded by David Davis, Aaron Dennison, and Mr. Their vision was to form a watch company that could produce high-quality watches at a lower cost using interchangeable parts. With financial backing from Samuel Curtis, the first watches were made in 1850, but problems were encountered. They were exploring new ideas in watch manufacturing, such as using jewels, making dials, and producing plates with a high-level of finish which required extensive tooling and resulted in great financial burden on the company. They also found that even though they were using interchangeable parts, each watch was still unique and had its own set of errors to be corrected. It took months to adjust the watches to the point where they were any better than other widely available timepieces. In 1851, the factory building was completed and the company began doing business under the name American Horology Company. The first watches produced went to officials of the company, and it was not until 1853 that the first watches were offered for sale to the public. The name was changed to “Boston Watch Company” in September 1853, and the factory in Waltham, Massachusetts was built in October 1854. The movements produced here (serial numbers 1001 – 5000) were signed “Dennison, Howard, & Davis, ” C. It was reorganized as Appleton, Tracy & Co. And watches 5001 – 14,000 were produced.

In 1860, as Abraham Lincoln was elected President and the country found itself in the throes of the Civil War, the American Watch Company was faced with serious financial problems. By 1861, business had come to a standstill and bankruptcy seemed inevitable. The factory was kept in operation through these years by cutting expenses to the lowest possible level… A strategy that proved successful. According to the biography by Carl Sandburg, Abraham Lincoln owned and carried a Waltham Wm. The watch was an 11-jewel, 18 size, keywind in a silver hunting case, and was produced in January of 1863. American Horology owes much to the brilliant visionaries of the Waltham Watch Company.
