    Is this the same Waltham as the clock maker?
    Just curious.
    I have several very old Waltham clocks and pocket watches.

    Yet there was a minor connection.

    The head badge of an Orient was made by the O'Hara Watch Face Co -

    { https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O'Hara_Waltham_Dial_factory}

    They were located in Waltham and supplied watch and clock faces to the makers of Waltham watches and clocks. Other cycles of the era used O'hara porcelain inserts as well as the makers of the Orient

    I have the Orient catalog with the Oriten in it. I think it's 1898 or 99. I'll post a pic soon.

    Good point Glen. I live about two miles from the old O'Hara factory. It's sadly sitting derelict now. Years of dumping old metals associated with making enamel badges(arsenic,lead and possibly antimony)on the grounds has contaminated the ground around it making the clean up extremely expensive for the future owners, and so it sits. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places but I fear it will fall down before it is preserved.

    Any idea where in Europe the "Oriten" was displayed?

    No - I do have the original full page ad though that filmonger originally posted if that's what you want to see. Maybe something is in there. I have to search for it if you need it.

    I just thought it might be interesting to see what the local press made of it, I'm sure that it would have garnered interest wherever it was shown.
    Thanks @corbettclassics , it would be great to see the whole, original ad.

    Anyone notice the turnbuckle in the Henry Ford pics ? The frame was so long that it flexed considerably when ridden. The turnbuckle stiffened it up.

    Can you imagine 10 guys ripping into a turn on that thing ? Probably terrifying.
