WBOTM August 2019 Weiss Watch Company

Post by Ocean » Tue Jul 30, 2019 10:38 pm

The long awaited return of the WBOTM! I haven’t done one in a very long time, but hopefully I’ll be able to going forward. Let’s get this party started with an American watch company! As many of you know I have a passion for American watch companies, especially those that make an in-house movement. Yes most that have built or designed a movement have had either training or help from overseas. Some information from

Weiss Watch Company is restoring prestige to American watchmaking. We design and build timepieces with mechanical movements by hand in Los Angeles, California. Each timepiece is individually assembled in America. Our practices merge historical techniques and modern technological advances, with every process perfected by a Swiss-trained and certified American watchmaker. Weiss Watch Company strives to increase the percentage of domestic sourcing with each edition, and is the only company resurrecting industry practices that have not been active in the United States for decades.


Caliber 1003 movements are manufactured and assembled in the US and designed for everyday wear. Each movement is machined, hand jeweled, plated, and finished inside our Los Angeles workshop. The CAL 1003 is a manual wind mechanical movement featuring a beat rate of 21,600 beats/hour, displaying the hours, minutes, and a sweep second hand at 9 with hacking feature to allow synchronization of the second hand with another timepiece. The movement also features incabloc shock protection to protect the balance wheel pivots.
