Weiss Standard Issue Field Watch
Weiss Updates and Refines Its Entry-Level Field Watch
Weiss is a Los Angeles-based watch brand notable for trying to do as much of its watchmaking in the United States as possible (a difficult task if there ever were one). The brand’s latest release — a new entry-level offering — is not a full-blown Made-In-The-US watch, but it’s nonetheless a captivating field watch with a movement that Weiss says is finished and assembled in the US.
More specifically, that movement is a hand-winding caliber made from Swiss parts and is apparently based on the Peseux 7001. Thanks to the thin, compact design of the movement, the watch comes in at just 38mm in diameter and 9.7mm high – fantastic proportions for a vintage-inspired field watch. Both black and white dials are available, and the watch will come affixed to a hard-wearing Cordura canvas strap.
