Shortly after Daniel O’Hara organized his dial manufacturing operation in the early 1890s, the O’Hara Waltham Dial Company quickly became the premier specialty dial producer in the United States.
The company offered unique custom dials depicting colorful scenes, fraternal symbology, and even personalized designs with customers’ names.
The 1907 Otto Young Tool & Material Catalog included over 50 designs offered by the O’Hara Waltham Dial Company, ranging from $8 to $17 (approximately $225-500 in the modern economy).
O’Hara eventually leveraged his knowledge and innovative enameling techniques to manufacture a wide line of products, including beer steins, coasters, and campaign pins.
