Feature | Weiss Watch Company

Wednesday January 28, 2015

Most men have at least one watch that they would call their "grail" watch. While the styles and names will vary, most will have one thing in common - they're technical. Weiss Watch Company is restoring prestige to American watchmaking while focusing on designing and building luxury timepieces with mechanical movements by hand in Los Angeles, California. 

Upon graduating from the Nicolas G. Hayek Watchmaking School as a WOSTEP Certified Watchmaker, the Californian, Cameron Weiss founded the Weiss Watch Company in 2013. He underwent extensive training at Audemars Piguet and Vacheron Constantin, two of the most prestigious luxury watch brands in both Switzerland and the US. Weiss Watch Company is currently the only watchmaker in the US designing, engineering, and manufacturing their own cases and dials, as well as finishing each movement by hand. 

The Standard Issue Field Watch features a manually wound Weiss Caliber 1001 mechanical movement comprised of over 100 Swiss parts that are hand-finished and assembled in L.A., California. The case and caseback are machined from one solid piece of stainless steel and polished individually by hand. Sapphire crystals are used on the front and back of the case for strength, durability and to display the highly finished movement inside. 

These timepieces are in limited production, each individually numbered in a custom-built California pine wood box, also built by hand in the USA.
