This monograph is a detailed study of the application of the American System of Manufacturing to watchmaking. It examines the work of Japy, Ingold, the Pitkin brothers, Dennison and Howard (the Boston Watch Company), and Royal Robins and Ambrose Webster (the American Watch Company).

The main aim is to examine the history of watchmaking in Roxbury and Waltham from 1850 to 1858. I suggest an alternative definition of the American System of Manufacturing and show how it was applied to watchmaking by the American Watch Company in 1857, after the bankruptcy of the Boston Watch Company.
