Production of $2,500 watch is limited to 50 pieces.

The 29-year-old head of Weiss Watch Co., Cameron Weiss, appropriately chose the Fourth of July to debut his company’s $2,500 American Issue Field Watch, a “handsome, retro-looking, vaguely military-inspired 42mm wristwatch heavy on the patriotic motifs,” the Los Angeles Times writes. For the exception of the hairsprings and jewel bearings, the article explains, the watch is crafted entirely out of American-made parts in Weiss’ 2,100-square-foot studio in Torrance, CA. Production of the watch is being limited to 50 pieces, one for each U.S. state.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
