East Boston Airport Timed By Waltham

East Boston Airport Timed By Waltham

Officially chosen to time the new Logan International Airport, East Boston, Massachusetts, the Waltham Watch Company has installed a score of synchronous clocks at every vantage point in the new airport buildings. "Waltham Watch Time" is etched in a metal ring encircling each clock.
