Waltham Field & Marine “Independence 12” Special Edition

Watch Angels SA presents 13 unique Field & Marine watches to celebrate the Declaration of American Independence.

The United States Declaration of Independence on 4th July in 1776 was a very important milestone in the history of the world. The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America marked the independence of these states from Great Britain.

In its preamble it also sets out the principles for American civil society. The key phrases of this preamble are engraved on the case-back of each watch of this special Waltham Field & Marine Edition.

Waltham Field & Marine "Independence 12" Special Edition

This special series includes thirteen unique collector pieces. One watch for each of the 13 Colonies present at the signature of the Declaration of Independence. Each piece is unique.

The thirteen colonies represented by this collection are New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia.

Waltham Field & Marine "Independence 12" Special Edition

The Waltham Field & Marine “Independence 12” watch features a 41mm diameter case in black PVD treated stainless steel.

Part of the preamble, the Betsy Ross flag (in color), the name of the Colony and the inscription “Unique Piece” are engraved on the case back.

Waltham Field & Marine "Independence 12" Special Edition

The white dial features Arabic hour markers, with 12’o clock numerals in red color and others in black. The red twelve evokes two special attributes. Firstly, the red twelve is the historic signature of Waltham trench watches. Moreover, twelve is the number of Colonies which actually signed, because New York abstained every time a vote was called.

Waltham Field & Marine "Independence 12" Special Edition

Each Waltham Field & Marine “Independence 12” timepiece houses a Swiss made automatic movement. It displays hour, minute, centre seconds and date (at 6 o’clock).

For each watch, an individual handmade box made of solid fir wood with the colony name and “unique piece” inscription.

Waltham Field & Marine Trench Watch (Re-issue)

Waltham brand, in cooperation with Switzerland based manufacture Watch Angels, presents the re-issue of the legendary Field & Marine trench watch.

Waltham Field & Marine Trench Watch (Re-issue)

During WWI, the American Waltham Watch Co. launched Field & Marine, the world’s first waterproof watch that actually worked.

Equipped with Waltham mechanical movements, this legendary timepiece was reinforced with a double clinched bezel invented by Charles Depoiller, a threaded hermetic case design and a screw down crown design made the Field & Marine virtually impenetrable. Furthermore, to tighten the watch case Depoiller created a tool, the “Chuck Key”, to torque down the bezel & case back for a watertight seal.

The reissue of the iconic Waltham Field & Marine trench watch preserves the spirit of its ancestor. It is however manufactured by using modern materials and innovative technologies.

About Waltham

The Waltham Watch Company, also known as the American Waltham Watch Co. and the American Watch Co., born from an idea by watchmaker Aaron Lufkin Dennison, produced about 40 million watches, clocks, aircraft instruments, speedometers, compasses, time fuses, and other precision instruments between 1850 and 1957. It invented the American Watchmaking System which made mass quality watch production possible, inspired Henry Ford’s Ford T assembly line, and which was later adopted by the Swiss watch industry. The company’s historic 19th century factory in Waltham, Massachusetts has been preserved as the American Waltham Watch Company Historic District.

About Watch Angels

Watch Angels is a leading Swiss watch manufacturer based in Mendrisio, Switzerland. It has developed the Crowd manufacturing system and operates the watchangels.ch community platform. It executes the Crowd manufacturing projects on behalf of the creator and acts as the contractual party to the buyer. More 40 years of experience in the industry, working for the most renowned brand names, confirm its relevance within the Swiss watch industry. The Watch Angels Crowd manufacturing system offers up 4.5 times the value and 1/4th of the price to watch enthusiasts.

WALTHAM

Waltham is a legendary American – Swiss precision watchmaking brand, which has been setting modern standards for the production of clocks and watches, and has over one thousand patents in the sector.

The American Waltham Watch Company, founded in 1850 in Massachusetts, created Waltham International SA in Switzerland in 1954. Since 1957, all Waltham high-end watches have been manufactured on the premises in Neuchâtel/Switzerland, 100% Swiss Made.

In 1850, Aaron Dennisson, Edvard Howard and David Davis founded Waltham Watch Company in Roxbury (USA). In 1854, the Company settled in the town of Waltham in the State of Massachusetts, and became the world’s first industrial watchmaking “manufacture”. In 1870 Waltham created the “Crescent Street” high-precision Railway watch. In 1912 Waltham launched its first feminine wristwatch, the “Lady Waltham”.

In 1954, over a Century after its foundation, Waltham relocated to Switzerland, the leading watch manufacturing country. In 1966 Waltham successfully launched the world’s first and only atmosphere proof self-winding mechanical watch in Japan, enabling durable chronometer precision. In 1987 Waltham began the manufacturing of watches with solid gold.

In 2000, for the commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the brand, Waltham dedicated its latest creation to women, with a limited edition in pink 750 gold of 100 individually numbered new “Lady Waltham”.

The majority shares of Waltham International SA were purchased in 2011 by Antonio DiBenedetto, the current President and CEO. With vast experience in the world of luxury and jewelry and a passion for timepieces, it is Antonio’s mission to deliver the Waltham brand back to its former glory and create high-tech, cutting-edge wrist watches that will “instill today’s men with the courage to choose and dare to follow their convictions”. The same bravery that drove the innovative and unconventional spirits of the legendary men who, with a Waltham, were key figures in the greatest achievements of the past 160 years.

Waltham International SA has established offices in Lugano, Milan and New York City. Strategic partnerships with top manufacturers in the industry and an R&D division based in La Neuveville/Neuchâtel allow Waltham to launch its first brand-new collection of wristwatches inspired by its history in the aero-naval sector.

Values
Precision, Innovation, Nonconformity: the values that have guided Waltham since its beginnings. The same values that fuelled the avant-garde spirit of all those men that have been key figures of the most audacious endeavors of the last 160 years. Dennison, in 1850. Lindbergh, when crossed the Atlantic with a Waltham. Shackleton had a Waltham when he conquered the South Pole, as did Peary when he first reached the North Pole. The Top Gun Pilots used Waltham on board of their Phantoms, like the heroes of the Allied Armed Forces, accompanied by Waltham in their epic endeavors at sea, on land and in the air.

Mission
The brand’s mission is to produce high-tech, cutting-edge, Swiss wristwatches that will instill today’s men with the courage to choose and dare to follow their convictions. Waltham offers Wristwatches of superior quality, with a mixture of unusual and advanced technological materials and a distinctive angular design, new icons of the contemporary luxury for men.

Collection
Waltham has never been inspired by history; Waltham is a part of history. This is why the models designed since the early 1900s for both the civilian and military aviation sectors have become the impetus for a redesign – now as then – of contemporary, high-precision, mechanical watchmaking.

An angular and bold design, with refined lines and uncompromising features that represent time: the brand-new Waltham Aeronaval Collection is the modern take on the brand’s glorious past, transforming wristwatches into icons of a new concept of contemporary luxury for men. The new collection is based on an innovative redefinition of time measuring functions, in perfect harmony with its bold design, and careful attention to detail that highlights every single feature, resulting in a daring, well-balanced timepiece, where nothing is left to chance.

In 2014, Waltham International SA returned to its origins with the Waltham Aeronaval Collection, featuring two aero-naval watch models that boast innovative design and technological functions, icons of a new concept of contemporary luxury for men. The new Waltham SOLO TEMPO and GMT are the modern expressions of fearless past endeavors, carried out by men who with a Waltham made world history through some of the greatest and most heroic achievements of the past 160 years.

Waltham SOLO TEMPO

Founded in 1850 in Roxbury, Massachusetts, it moved four years later to the small town that would give the company its name. Since its beginnings, Waltham has always stood out for the high-precision and superior performance of its instruments. These characteristics earned Waltham a place with the most important organizations and institutions at the beginning of the 20th Century, including the U.S. Military, and Railroad Companies in 52 countries across 7 continents. Waltham instruments were also selected by the pioneers of the time, such as Sir Ernest Shackleton on his trek towards the South Pole, Robert Peary when he conquered the North Pole, Charles Lindbergh on the first non-stop transatlantic flight, and the Pilots of the Top Gun School. All independent and courageous men who chose to share their achievements with a Waltham.

Waltham has never been inspired by history; Waltham is a part of history. This is why the new Waltham researched models designed for civilian and military aviation since the early 1900s to create a collection characterized by its bold and dramatic angular design, elegance, and uncompromising innovation. Two Aero-naval wristwatches where no feature is superfluous, creating beauty out of functionality: the WALTHAM XA (SOLO TEMPO), the forerunner and iconic model and the exclusive WALTHAM CDI (GMT) featuring the unique civil date indicator.

WALTHAM CDI (GMT)

Designed and manufactured in Switzerland, the pulsing center of the world’s watchmaking industry, the new timepieces redefine Waltham’s glorious history with style, elegance and technology, starting from their high-end, mechanical self-winding movement.

The wristwatches boast multi layered Titanium G5 cases with ceramic bezels, and other features that are representative of Waltham style, such as the dodecagonal case, the second counter at 12 o’clock in the XA and the GMT with a central date indicator and rapid time zone selector. An innovative interpretation of functions, in perfect harmony with its sharp linear design and careful attention to detail that highlights every single feature, resulting in a well-balanced state-of-the-art timepiece where no detail is overlooked. Genuine volcanized rubber watchstraps for better fit and endurance; sophisticated deployante clasps in Titanium G2; water-resistant up to 30 bar/300 mt, all elements that give these wristwatches great character.

Timeline (1850 to 2014)
1850: Roxbury, Massachusetts, USA, inspired by Aaron Lufkin Dennison, a visionary genius, the first industrial mechanical watch and clock manufacturer in the world is founded. For the first time, clocks and watches were not produced piece-by-piece and later assembled by individual craftsmen but rather, thanks to interchangeable parts and patented automated, precision watchmaking machines, they are produced in series.

1854: The Company moves to Waltham, the town that will give the company its name, and opens a model factory where it employs over 3,000 people at the height of its productivity. From 1850 to 1957, over 40 million timepieces are produced, making the Waltham company the world’s leading producer of clocks and watches. The modern American system of watch and clock manufacturing is not the only technique developed in Waltham; it also boasts the forerunner of the “assembly line”. Henry Ford, during a visit, is inspired to develop the automated production line for the legendary Model T revolutionizing, just as Dennison had for watchmaking, the manufacturing process for automobiles.

1863: United States President, Abraham Lincoln, becomes one of the first proud owners of the Waltham model 1857 Serial Number 67613, the first industrialized pocket watch. Currently part of a collection at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, this watch was presented to the President to celebrate the Gettysburg Address and the historical achievement that no one had been able to accomplish before him: the abolition of slavery.

1870: The first Waltham Railroad Watches are manufactured: high-precision pocket watches that are selected by railroad companies in 52 countries across the five continents, including the Regie Ferrovie Italiane, which adopted the Vanguard Model in 1907. This is the first watch to incorporate the “up and down” power reserve indicator on the dial, a Waltham patent that is still used in hand-wound timepieces. During the golden age of railroads, there were more Waltham watches in circulation around the world than all other brands put together.

1900: The new century begins and Waltham is in search of the highest possible precision for its clocks and watches. Manufacturers at that time had to turn to astronomical observatories in order to verify and certify the precision of their clockwork. Waltham – the first and only manufacturer in the world – decides to build its own astronomical observatory to ensure the quality of its vast industrial production.

1909: Waltham timepieces and precision instruments become faithful companions in exploration expeditions and courageous, ambitious endeavors. In January, the Anglo-Irish explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton treks towards the center of the South Pole, pushing himself further south than anyone had gone before. In April, the American explorer Robert Peary is the first man to reach the geographic North Pole. Accompanying them, was a Waltham: the only pocket watch that could withstand such extreme conditions while maintaining excellent performance.

1911: The Marine Chronometers, Waltham Model 1910, featuring an 8-day power reserve, are chosen by the United States, Canadian and British governments for all military and civilian ships. No other factory is equipped to manufacture such high-performance chronometers in such large quantities.

1915: With the onset of the First World War, Waltham manufactures the first wristwatches for the American armed forces: more practical in the trenches than pocket watches, they are made even more resistant by the addition of a metal cage that protects the case. But the war is also an opportunity for Waltham, and the military, to experiment with flight: the rudimentary military aircraft used in WWI are fitted with a Waltham XA Type 37 Model aeronautical clock.

1916: Waltham begins production of clocks and speedometers for automobiles. Precise and reliable even when exposed to strong and continuous vibrations, these instruments were supplied to Ford, Lincoln, Renault, Cadillac, and even Rolls Royce. In the forefront of this sector too, Waltham and world-renowned scientist Nikola Tesla patent the first Air Friction speedometer, creating the most precise automobile instrument capable of measuring speed, distance and time.

1924: Henry Ford commissions Waltham to build a grandfather clock that adorned his office until his death in 1947, after which it was donated to the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn (Michigan).

1927: Charles Lindberg, an unknown US Air Mail pilot, has the instrument panel on board his “Spirit of St Louis” modified in order to fit a Waltham XA Type 37 aeronautical clock. Lindbergh boards his plane in New York on May 19 and lands 33 hours later in Paris, marking the first non-stop transatlantic flight.

Waltham XA Type 37 aeronautical clock

1928: Australian aviation pioneer Sir Charles Kingsford Smith, leaves Oakland, California, to land in Brisbane, Australia, completing the first non-stop flight across the Pacific Ocean. The aeronautical clock in his tri-motor aircraft, the Southern Cross is a Waltham XA Type 37.

1941: During the Second World War, Waltham’s experience in the aviation sector brings it on board the most emblematic aircraft of the time. These include the F6F Hellcat, with over 12,000 units built from 1943 to 1945 and fitted with the CDIA Model; the B24 Liberator bomber, the most widely produced military aircraft in history; and the legendary P-51 Mustang fighter plane, used until the 1980s.

Waltham CDIA

1947: Waltham manufactures the Type A11 Navigational Watch. This wristwatch is the first to become standard military issue for all the American armed forces: in a waterproof version for the navy, and a dustproof version for all the other services.

1950: In response to military requirements and in collaboration with the armed forces, in the 1950s Waltham develops the Type A17 Pilot Watch and the wrist compass, standard issue equipment for the US Air Force and Navy.

1954: After more than 100 years in the United States, Waltham establishes Waltham SA in Switzerland, the new pulsing center of global watchmaking, where the Swiss Made brand begins production.

1967: The F4 Phantoms are legends of the US Navy even before they enter into service, setting new records in altitude and speed. They are therefore chosen by the equally legendary Top Gun Fighter Weapons School to train the best pilots in the US Air Force. Their control panels boast a Waltham Type A-13A, the official aeronautical clock of the US Department of Defense during the Cold War, that is fitted on board all American military aircraft ranging from U-2s to the C-130 Hercules.

Waltham Type A-13A

1981: After entering the Asian market at the end of the 1970s with the Vacuum Model, the innovative mechanical wristwatch that works in the absence of atmosphere, Waltham is purchased by the Japanese company, Heiwado & Co. and quickly becomes the most popular brand in Japan.

2000 : The success on the Asian market is celebrated with the incredible Radiant 2000, a model decorated with over 150 carats of diamonds and considered the most expensive wrist watch of the time.

2011: The majority shares of Waltham International SA are purchased by Italian-American entrepreneur Antonio DiBenedetto who sets a new objective: to create high-tech, cutting-edge wrist watches that can instill today’s men with the courage to choose and dare to follow their convictions. Inspired by the same courage that drove the innovative and unconventional spirits of the legendary men who, with a Waltham, became key figures in the greatest achievements of the past 160 years.

Antonio DiBenedetto

2014: Waltham introduces its first aero-naval high-end mechanical self-winding wristwatch collection. Inspired by the innovative models of the past, these daring state-of-the-art wristwatches, with sharp lines, and intriguing bold angular design, create new icons of contemporary luxury designed for modern fearless men: contemporary pioneers, innovative and unconventional just as the extraordinary Waltham owners who have taken part in the greatest endeavors of the past 160 years.

Waltham Aeronaval Solo Tempo XA

Swiss luxury watchmaker Waltham International SA presents a brand-new, exclusive and daring aeronaval model: the SOLO TEMPO XA.

It is the Waltham brand’s new iconic wristwatch and forerunner of the innovative Aeronaval Collection, designed for modern fearless men: contemporary pioneers, innovative and unconventional just as the legendary Waltham owners who have taken part in the greatest endeavors of the past 160 years.

Waltham Aeronaval Solo Tempo XA

On 20 May 1927, Charles A. Lindbergh was on board the Spirit of St. Louis. Fear and anxiety accompanied him on the first non-stop transatlantic flight. These fears faded away like fog under the sun when his single-engine plane landed on French soil, replaced by the certainty of having accomplished a remarkable feat, of having taken a risk and won, of having dared, of being the first.

WALTHAM XA-Type 37

The WALTHAM XA expresses all of this, inspired by the legendary XA-Type 37 Model, the aeronautical clock chosen personally by Lindbergh to be fitted on board his plane, and his loyal partner in the great achievement that made history.

WALTHAM XA-Type 37

The new WALTHAM XA reinterprets the main innovative functions of its predecessor, enhanced by distinctive time readability features in an elegant and contemporary angular design that encompasses high-tech, superior quality components.

Waltham Aeronaval Solo Tempo XA

This high-precision mechanical self-winding wristwatch is powered by the refined caliber W.DB-001 Dubois-Dépraz 14060 automatic movement. It features an original second counter at 12 o’clock, directly inspired by its legendary predecessor.

Waltham Aeronaval Solo Tempo XA

The striking multi-level dial, embellished with a characteristic embossed W pattern, gives it depth and perspective, while the particular minute angled upward hand and the applied indexes are coated with Super-LumiNova®, for maximum readability in all lighting conditions.

Waltham Aeronaval Solo Tempo XA

The Vanguard XA boasts a case in Titanium G5 – crafted in an exclusive angular dodecagonal design – that seems to be set in an instrument panel: a concept designed to be reminiscent of the glorious past of the aeronautical instrument it was inspired by.

Waltham Aeronaval Solo Tempo XA

The bezel is in ceramic, made of zirconium oxide. The sapphire crystal has an anti-reflective treatment. The modern watchstrap is in genuine volcanized rubber and features a sophisticated originally designed deployante clasp in Titanium G2. Always elegant, and perfect for any occasion thanks to the combination of design and performance, the new WALTHAM XA is also water resistant up to 30 bar/300 meters.

Waltham Aeronaval Solo Tempo XA

The WALTHAM XA is the expression of a new concept of contemporary luxury for men, where various materials work skillfully in harmony to create a refined and powerful timepiece.

Waltham Aeronaval Solo Tempo XA

It is available in three versions: simply Pure, with case in titanium G5; the sophisticated Eclipse, in two tone black PVD; and the audacious Black Matter, completely in black PVD.

WALTHAM Crescent

Waltham introduces a signature model embodying a proud history of precision timekeeping expressed through a classic modern design.

Just as the history of navigation inspired the creation of marine chronometers, and the birth of aviation led to the creation of dedicated timekeeping instruments, so too the great railway adventure sparked the invention of watches renowned for their accuracy and their reliability. Waltham was an acknowledged pioneer in this demanding domain, as the first and most highly reputed manufacturer to produce watch movements for railroad purposes. Its models were widely adopted as the official timekeepers by railroad companies in North America and beyond, including India.

Such watches had to meet a number of highly specific criteria, including extreme durability and insensitivity to changes in temperature, climate and altitude, as well as absolute mechanical precision. The latter quality was ensured by the cutting-edge automatic machinery invented in the factory, and the fine adjustment performed in firm’s very own astronomical observatory, while its other valuable properties were tried and tested in expeditions undertaken by the great explorers of the day including Peary and Shackelton, as well as survey and other scientific work for various governments.

Waltham’s “Crescent St.” model (470501-471200), produced in the 1900s and named after the street running next to the site of the original factory, became a high-grade railroad favourite and a benchmark in its field. Well known to specialised connoisseurs, this antique watch remains in demand to this day, along with the superb “Vanguard” model that was subsequently developed and embodied numerous technical improvements guaranteeing even greater precision.

One of the most significant features of Waltham’s railroad watches was their substantial power reserve, often displayed on the dial. This characteristic is picked up in the new Waltham Crescent, equipped with mechanical self-winding La Joux-Perret Calibre 3513, of which the intricate workings can be admired through the sapphire crystal exhibition back.

WALTHAM Crescent watch

Officially chronometer-certified by the COSC, this high-precision movement drives central hour, minute and seconds hands, along with the power-reserve indication at 6 o’clock, beautifully counter-balanced by the large date window at 12 o’clock. The Arabic 4 and 8 o’clock numerals, along with the surrounding hour-markers, are coated with a luminescent substance to ensure optimal readability in any lighting.

The elegantly rounded case in white, pink or yellow gold features Waltham’s distinctive curved lugs, a blue spinel cabochon on the crown, as well as a cambered sapphire crystal glare-proofed on both sides to further enhance legibility. This epitome of elegance is secured to the wrist by an alligator leather strap complete with an 18K gold buckle.

Waltham Vanguard 160th Anniversary Edition, Pocket Watches

For its 160th anniversary, Waltham highlights the multiple facets of its magnificent heritage through a range of unique pocket-watches honouring its origins, its recognised technical expertise, as well as its flair for exquisite artistry. The new models enriching the Vanguard collection in this jubilee year thus enshrine a fascinating blend of brand history, creative design and horological know-how.

These splendid pocket-watches bear eloquent testimony to an age when pulling a watch out of a waistcoat pocket was a measured gesture of refinement that lent a distinctive value to time. In the modern age, when time is more than ever at a premium, they offer discerning connoisseurs the luxury of admiring the intricate workings of the finely crafted mechanisms within, thanks to sapphire crystals on either side that provide stunning views of the movements – such as the skeletonised mechanical hand-wound Piguet-based 8-day calibres in the 160th anniversary collection.

Waltham Vanguard 160th Anniversary Edition, Pocket Watches

While previous Vanguard creations have been adorned with exquisite hand-engraving or marquetry-work executed by the finest specialists in these demanding fields, the new introductions feature metal etching on the skeletonised part, as well as mother-of-pearl mosaic motifs and sparkling diamond setting. The common denominator between all these craftsmanship techniques lies in the meticulous patience and precision that skilled artisans lavish on creating such unique works of art, and which make an admirable match for the very same qualities characteristic of master-watchmakers.

The 160th anniversary models radiate a distinctly Art Deco feel that is reminiscent of Waltham’s strong ties with this artistic movement, expressed here through a wealth of precious materials and sophisticated techniques.

Meanwhile, the 6 o’clock numeral is replaced on the Waltham Elite Small Seconds by a dedicated small seconds sub-dial overlapping the inner ring to form a sophisticated central motif.

Waltham Lady Amelia Watch

Inspired by the pioneering pilot, Amelia Earhart, whose daring feats and relentless determination to excel earned her worldwide acclaim and an enduring place in aviation history, the Lady Amelia watch, just like its muse, offers the eloquent proof that femininity and sporting accomplishments can make a perfect match.

With her universally praised courage and skills universally praised and her qualities vividly demonstrated in the famous 1932 solo flight across the Atlantic, Amelia Earhart believed her own achievements proved that women could equal men in “jobs requiring intelligence, coordination, speed, coolness and willpower”. Her matchless career was dotted with landmark feats and new records. Sadly, it came to an abrupt and mysterious end in 1937 during her monumental round-the-world flight attempt. While her untimely disappearance has never yet been fully explained, her spirit continues to inspire successive generations of adventurous and enterprising women.

Sometimes called “Lady Lindy” because of her slim build and her facial features showed a resemblance with Charles Lindbergh, Amelia Earhart was so popular in her own days that people named their babies, lakes and even homing pigeons “Amelia”! Seven decades on, Waltham now chooses to honour her memory by introducing a chronograph embodying the spirit that propelled her to ever greater heights.

Waltham Lady Amelia Watch

This handsome model is powered by a quartz movement and it is housed in a generously rounded steel case with the brand-signature fan-shaped lugs and knurled winding-crown set with a spinel, as are the push-buttons on either side. The highly readable dial is available in three distinctively featured distinctive versions.

One is a; one features a black background with contrasting matt white 12-hour, 30-minute or 60-second counters and 3 outsized numerals; a second, a matt-white background with black numerals and counters; while the third is , or a mother-of-pearl baby pink version. A large central seconds hand moves steadily around the graduated outer rim.

Waltham Lady Baroda

For ladies of exquisite good taste and refinement, Waltham introduces a stunning new watch named Lady Baroda, inviting them to carry echoes of a legend on their wrist.

Probably best known as the centrepiece of the Moon of Baroda necklace worn by Marilyn Monroe for the promotions of “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes”, the spectacular 24.04-carat canary-yellow pear-shaped Moon of Baroda diamond is named after the famous city in the Indian state of Gujarat where it was originally found.

It will also be featured in the dazzling “Diamond Divas” exhibition held in Antwerp in 2008 and designed to convey how diamond jewellery is a “perfect reflection of the personality, glamorous lifestyle and tastes of the owner”. Like other exceptional gemstones, the Moon of Baroda diamond is surrounded by fascinating myths, and it is believed to bring success and fortune to its lucky owner.

Waltham now encapsulates all the glamour and mystery of the Moon of Baroda in a magnificent model featuring nested pear shapes within a radiant case in 18K rose gold or 18K white gold, surrounded by a hand-facetted sapphire crystal.

Waltham Lady Baroda watch

Driven by a quartz movement, the dainty hour and minute hands move gracefully around shimmering white mother-of-pearl or black enamelled dial is adorned with 11 diamond hour-markers and a diamond-set 12 o’clock numeral. The pear shaped motif is also reflected in the jewelled bezel and lugs, while facetted winding-crown extends and reflects this precious and inspirational theme.

With the strap available in a set of white crocodile leather and rubber for the white mother-of-pearl dial versions, and black crocodile leather and rubber for the black enamelled version, Lady Baroda is the perfect way for ladies of exquisite good taste and refinement to continue building their own legend.

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.

WALTHAM Heritage Pocket watches

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.

Waltham Lone Eagle Classic

Harking back to the magical early days of aviation and to “those magnificent men in their flying machines”, the Waltham Lone Eagle Classic offers connoisseurs a special treat in the shape of a classic model propelled by a tried and tested hand-wound movement.

Introduced in 2007 in tribute to aviation history and to one of its most eminent figures, Charles Lindbergh, aka the Lone Eagle, this entire collection enshrines the same commitment to technical perfection and impeccable accuracy that guided such gifted pioneering individuals in their quest for heroic achievements.

Entirely crafted in platinum, the 45 mm case of Waltham Lone Eagle Classic is topped by a cambered sapphire crystal glare-proofed on the inside, and also features a transparent case back enabling one to admire the richly decorated movement. Beneath the simple appeal of its classic pilot’s watch design, it conceals a mechanical hand-wound movement, IWC Calibre 952, driving the hour, minute and small seconds hands. Offset at 9 o’clock, the latter counter confirms the vintage appeal of this sleek and understated model with the symbolic Waltham trademarks of the fan-shaped lugs and knurled winding-crown.

Issued in a symbolic limited edition of 8 for the year 2008 and proudly evoking the period between the 1920s and 1940s when aviation was just getting off the ground, this distinguished timekeeping companion is fitted with a crocodile leather strap secured by a white gold folding clasp.

Waltham Lone Eagle

Since the establishment of Waltham Watch Company in 1850, the brand’s Timepieces have been used extensively during many flying missions, scientific researches and expeditions.

For example, when the legendary aviator Charles Lindbergh completed the record breaking first solo, non-stop flight from New York to Paris on May 21st 1927, his famous silvery custom-made Spirit of St. Louis monoplane was equipped with a Waltham eight-day clock. In parallel with thus partnering the conquest of the airs, Waltham also played a prime role in the history of railways.

After its relocation to Switzerland from United States, the brand remains committed to preserving its rich historical and ethical heritage through smaller series and limited editions focusing on exclusivity and horological innovation. Whichever way one looks at it, quality and concern for details are the golden threads running through the rich tapestry of the brand history, and these attributes are vividly displayed in its latest models. In 2007, Waltham unveiled a new large pilot’s watch that will inspire the man who wears it to show the same audacious and “the sky’s the limit” attitude: the Waltham Lone Eagle.

Almost as if time stood still when Waltham left its birthplace in America, a number of subtle touches in this new model serve as visual reminders of the 1950s style in general, and that of pilots and their watches in particular. These aesthetic details include the design of the crown; “technical” features such as the font used for the numerals and the shape of the hour hands that meet official USA pilot’s watch specifications; and even the rugged strap crafted from the type of buffalo leather typical of pilot’s jackets of the era, complete with studs that reinforce this association.

The sturdy steel 45mm-diameter case features the brand’s signature fan-shaped lug arrangement, while its back carries the circular seal depicting the eagle symbol traditionally used by Waltham. Despite the wide range of information they provide, the dials remain ultra-readable and come in an attractive choice of black, blue and chocolate brown, while the cambered sapphire crystal is given an anti-reflective treatment on the inside to guarantee the clarity and visibility that are all important virtues for a watch of this kind.

This high-performance timepiece is powered by the Dubois-Dépraz Calibre 31342, officially chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute). The latter smoothly and efficiently drives central hour and minutes hands, small seconds at 3 o’clock, as well as a central seconds chronograph counter, 30-minute chronograph counter at 9 o’clock, flyback function, date display at 6 o’clock, as well as a central 24-hour GMT hand.

Thereby implicitly and explicitly recalling the spirit of adventure that spurred Lindbergh (aptly nicknamed the Lone Eagle) and many other such pioneering individuals to heroic achievements, the new Waltham Lone Eagle pilot’s watch from Waltham is a distinguished and distinctive model imbued with a nostalgic charm that in no way detracts from its decidedly contemporary appeal.
