If you are interested in horological history, you should have heard about Waltham already.
Waltham is located in Massachusetts (USA) and it was a prototype for XIX century industrial city planning. Naturally Waltham was named ‘Watch City’ because it was related to the watch industry. Waltham Watch Company opened its factory in Waltham in 1854 and was the first company to make watches on an assembly line, producing more than 40 million watches, clocks and instruments until 1957.
At present The Watch City Festival takes place in the ‘Original Steampunk City’, as Waltham inhabitants call themselves.
Probably you will understand now why we could not help, but creating a pendant named ‘Ode to Waltham’.
