File:WalthamWatchCompany.jpg

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.

In 1850, Roxbury, Massachusetts, David Davis, Edward Howard and Aaron Lufkin Dennison formed together the company that would become the Waltham Watch Company. In 1851, the company took the name "American Horologe Company".   Howard and Dennison would eventually perfect and patent their precision watch making machines and create the American System of Watch Manufacturing.

The company was renamed Boston Watch Co. in September 1853. In 1907 the name changed to Waltham Watch Co. (WWCo)
