Weiss Watch Company – Standard Issue Field Watch
Weiss Watch Company is restoring prestige to American watchmaking. They design and build luxury timepieces with mechanical movements by hand in Los Angeles, California. Their practices merge historical techniques and modern technological advances, with every process perfected by a Swiss trained and certified American watchmaker. Weiss Watch Company strives to increase the percentage of domestic sourcing with each edition, and is the only company resurrecting industry practices that have not been active in the United States for well over a century.
Weiss Watch Company is currently the only watchmaker in the United States designing, engineering, and manufacturing our own cases and dials, as well as finishing each movement by hand. They create each of our timepieces to be a trusted heirloom that can be worn every day for generations. A symbol of American ingenuity and integrity, each of our editions purposefully surpasses historical standards, using higher quality materials that last longer with less scheduled maintenance.
- All case parts, dials, hands, spring bar tools, straps and packaging are designed, engineered and manufactured in Los Angeles.
- Current mechanical movement, buckles, case-back screws and spring bar screws are made in Switzerland, with finishing and assembly completed at our Los Angeles studio.
- Cases, crowns, and buckles are forged from 316 stainless steel, allowing the best corrosion resistance and finest degree of finishing.
- 18kt gold maintains durability and machining ability.
- Dials are made from the highest grade of naval or red brass, machined from a solid piece of brass with no welds or weak points, featuring hand painted or printed details.
- Highly transparent sapphire crystal is used on the front and back, synthetically derived to be free of imperfections and structural flaws.
- Gaskets utilize higher quality materials with heavier density, lasting far longer than industry standards.
- Movement parts are made from traditional metal alloys, unchanged since the 1800’s, allowing any professional watchmaker to make repairs using standard tools.
