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.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
