Waltham Manufacturing Company was founded by Waltham businessmen around engineer Charles Herman Metz (1863-1937). Metz encouraged two employees to build a steam car of their own in the company's premises, which led to the Waltham Steam. Metz imported French Aster engines, and secured the U.S. distributorship for De Dion-Bouton engines.

The Waltham-Orient was offered in five Touring models in 1906.
• Model R, 20 HP. $2,250
• Model N Tourist, 20 HP. $2,000
• Model L Tourist, 16 HP. $1,750
• Model M Runabout with detachable tonneau, 16 HP. $1,750
• Model K 2-passenger Runabout, 16 HP. $1,600
