"There was a time when the term "American Watch" was one
of contempt at home and abroad. To-day Waltham Watches are
the standard pocket time piece from Christiania to Cape Town,
from Melbourne to New York.
Peary used them in discovering the North Pole and the whole
world pays respect and good will to their accuracy and honesty.
Beginning with the exposition of the Massachusetts Charitable
Mechanic Association held in Boston in 1856, and up to the
present time Waltham Watches, wherever exhibited, have taken
the first prize and highest award at all the national and
international expositions, including that at Seattle in 1909. -
