SToday there are, broadly speaking, no large regions on the face of the globe that have not been traversed or penetrated by that incomparable, wonderful, adjustable machine-the human animal."-AdmiralPeary. With equal force and equal truth, it can be said that there are no large regions on the face of the globe which have not been penetrated by those instruments of excelling accuracy and dependability-the Waltham timepieces. WALTHAM Timepieces In the era of exploration which was crowned with the achievements of Peary and of Amundsen, Waltham instruments for the measurement of time played an important part. Admiral Peary used Walthams in his long series of struggles to attain the North Pole. Explorers in all of the obscure corners of the earth learned to depend upon the chronometers and watches manufactured at Waltham as the most scientifically accurate, under all conditions of wind and weather, made anywhere in the world. The great exploring expeditions of the immediate future will carry Waltham timepieces. Professor Macmillan's long-deferred expedition into Crockerland, in the Far North, will be equipped with Waltham Box Chronometers, Waltham Meantime Watches, and Waltham Sidereal Watches. Walthams will form part of the equipment of the Amundsen Expedition to the North Pole in 1914, and when Professor Bingham, of Yale University, next penetrates Peru on another of his remarkable tours of excavation and discovery, all of his movements will be "Waltham" timed. It is one thing to manufacture watches which will "run fairly well" in every-day civilized life; it is quite a different matter to produce time instruments which will yield infallible service on the ice-fields and the outermost places of the earth. In the manufacture of the latter, men of science universally accord first place to Waltham. All Waltham products are distinguished for their sincere, dependable qualities. The factory which can manufacture the leading scientific time instruments can, and does, manufacture the leading watch of every description. Your jeweler will no doubt be able to show you the Waltham timepiece you may desire. We would be pleased to send you free, upon request, descriptive literature of any style of Waltham Watch you may care to know about. Simply give us a general description of the kind of watch you have in mind. WALTHAM WATCH COMPANY WALTHAM, MASS. D1m 1 1II "Geographic readers may depend upon the character of our advertisers."
