The Workings of Waltham

For those who have not read this excerpt from the Baker Library @ Harvard Business School I find it very interesting. Although not complete it is worth the time. It's in PDF so you shouldn't have any trouble getting it to load.

Great link! This particular publication was also reprinted in 1972 by Ken Roberts Publishing Co. They used to reproduce a lot of valuable old horological publications. Used copies may still be found occasionally.

By the way, how did you find that PDF? There are a lot of other documents in the Baker Library that I would like to search.

Jerry it was a reference link in the Wikipedia article on Waltham Watch Co. Here is the front page of the Baker Library where I found this. I'm not sure if any other records are available from this page but you can try.
