Weiss 42mm Standard Issue Field Watch - American Microbrand

I've been wanting to check out a Weiss watch for a long time now, and I was fortunate enough to purchase this watch from a very kind watch collector (thanks Mike) who kept it in excellent condition. Weiss has been on my radar because of the fact that a lot of the components that go into this watch are made in the United States, and in-house by the founder Cameron Weiss. This watch is from their Standard Issue line, which does not have an in-house movement, but is still a very impressive watch for the money. I often see this watch get mentioned in two contexts - (1) as a watch with a lot of American Made components and (2) Cameron Weiss' watchmaking education, and ties to Audemars Piguet and Vacheron Constantin. But what about the watch itself? Let's take a look...

Thanks for looking!

Thanks for sharing. I have been interested in Weiss for a while. I think many of us love the idea of a quality, durable watch made in America with many American made components. And Weiss' history working for VC and the like is really awesome. Great photos!

Thanks for checking it out. It is quite wonderful to see a brand try to push the limits of 'American Watchmaking', and do so much in-house.

I think that's fair if you compare spec-for-spec versus other European watchmakers. But the quality here is no less impressive, and there is clearly a draw towards the fact that so much of it is made locally.

Another point to note is that pre-owned prices on these watches are quite low, which means you can get them for incredible prices if you're not keen on buying new. I purchased this one pre-owned.
