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.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
