Waltham production figures were down in 1907 and 1908. The same model Waltham Orient's and Orient Buckboards were offered. In 1908, the Waltham Manufacturing Company ran into financial trouble and the owners wanted Charles Metz to come back. Charles Metz's association with The Waltham Manufacturing Company ended in 1902 and in 1908 he returned as the new owner. To get the company out of debt Metz stopped production of both the Waltham Orient and the Orient buckboard and designed the 1909 Metz Plan car.
