WALTHAM Heritage

True to their pioneering roots, the Heritage collection symbolises Waltham’s dedication to the art of horology.

At the heart of each model is an ultra-smooth hand-wound mechanical movement, certified COSC (except the HP43), that keeps perfect time. Enclosing these are cases fashioned from 18 carat solid white or yellow gold in a variety of styles giving the individual a high level choice to suit their own tastes, whether it is a traditional hunter or Lépine case or the distinctly arch-shaped HP43.

The result is a pocket watch that communicates the owner’s personal expression of themselves through a flawlessly made timekeeper rather than the all too common display of a status symbol or label.

  1. These watches belong to the Heritage collection launched by the brand in 2000 to mark its 150th anniversary. They featured ETA Unitas or Peseux 7001 movements. I have updated the article with additional details of this series. Presently, Waltham branded watches are produced by Watch Angels SA.
