Taken from their website. Happenstance discovery of this company on Instagram. I love the USA and these guys are making watches out of Los Angeles. Interesting design!






Cameron Weiss, watchmaker and owner of Weiss Watch Company, began pursuing watchmaking after he learned about the skill required to put together a watch. He attended two years of Swiss watchmaking school at the Nicolas G. Hayek Watchmaking School in order to graduate as a WOSTEP Certified Watchmaker and then trained more extensively with two of the most prestigious luxury watch brands in Switzerland & the US. Cameron’s exceptional talent & training, as well his interest in American watchmaking, led him to create watches with the gold standard of timeless American quality. His process begins with designing & manufacturing the watch itself. From there, he finishes & assembles each timepiece by hand. These accessible heirlooms are built to withstand time and generations. Before the introduction of the disposable quartz watch, American manufacturing revolutionized the way mechanical watches were made. We seek to rediscover the legacy & prestige of the manufacturing processes originated by Waltham in the United States.







Weiss Watch Company is proud to offer a mechanical timepiece built in the U.S.A. The fully mechanical movement is a manually wound Caliber 6497 that is comprised of over 60 Swiss parts. These parts are then hand-finished and assembled in Los Angeles, California and encased in a 42mm water resistant, 316 stainless steel case with sapphire front and back crystals. The hands are painted with luminescent paint for legibility in the dark and the dials were designed with maximum legibility in mind. The Standard Issue Field Watch comes on a custom olive water resistant canvas strap that is stitched together in America. The Standard Issue Field Watch is built to last and is a limited edition of 500 pieces.

Interesting. Leaving Nordstrom last week, I ran across one of these in a stand-alone display case. When I have time this coming week, I'm going to pick one up. For $675, it can't hurt.

Cameron has worked for Vacheron and knows what he is doing. Case is a good size, the movement is a workhorse and the watches are superbly built from the feedback that I've seen. Well worth the price IMO.

If you have IG, follow him under Weiss Watch Company
