Cameron Weiss, the master craftsman
The Weiss Watch Company was founded by Cameron Weiss in 2013 in California to enable him to fulfil his dream of designing and building luxury timepieces by hand. Having graduated from the Nicolas G. Hayek Watchmaking School as a WOSTEP Certified Watchmaker, Cameron underwent extensive training at Audemars Piguet and Vacheron Constantin, two of the most prestigious luxury watch brands in both Switzerland and the United States.
Today, over 35 hours go into the creation of each Weiss heirloom timepiece.
A symbol of American ingenuity and integrity, each edition purposefully surpasses historical standards, using higher quality materials that last longer with less scheduled maintenance.
The design process begins with a simple hand-drawn sketch. Engineering documents are created to translate those sketches into parts to be machined. Each mechanical movement is made from over 150 parts. There are no batteries, circuitry, or computer chips involved and every watch is machined, hand jeweled, plated and finished in the studio: each one a true classic.
You could be the proud owner of an American Issue Field Watch, handmade by the Weiss Watch Company. Only a very limited amount of these individually numbered Green Dial CAL 1003 timepieces were ever produced, retailing for $1995.
