“The Waterbury” Name

“The Waterbury” name is a reference to the brass and clock-making industries of Waterbury’s past. When the two industries converged – with brass becoming a central component in locally-produced watches – Waterbury gained notoriety across the country, and around the world.

At one point, nearly fifteen hundred of a certain pocket watch were being produced each day, a product which became universally known as a symbol of reliability. Its name? The Waterbury.

“The Waterbury” also references both the City proper, and the greater Waterbury region – a collection of vibrant communities that offer many attractive qualities for businesses and families looking to take root here.
