  • The Details

    Inspired by Cameron Weiss’ dives into the Pacific Ocean and quests through the Sierra Nevada, this timeless piece defies the elements and withstands the test of time – trust us. Produced by hand with over 100 Swiss parts, it’s sure to become a trusted heirloom.

  • The Materials

    To us, staying true to our roots is key. And when we created the 38MM Standard Issue Field, we kept that in mind. We incorporated details like black oxide-treated hands, luminescent Super-Luminova paint that looks as clear in the dark as it does in the light, and naval brass dials for a luxurious-yet-artisanal finish. Hand-polished surgical grade 316L stainless steel and sapphire crystals add an elevated finish. The most popular pairing for our black dial is a durable, waterproof canvas strap that keeps things cool and comfortable.

Bought this as a gift and I am incredibly excited to give it!

A risk worth taking

As a sight unseen purchase. The risk of venturing below 40mm turned out to be minimal. I have a 7.25” wrist and by no means does the watch look out of place. I am in the camp of date windows are a must have, check. I do use it as a field watch as it hides under every cuff or sleeve. Even a tight surf shirt has a hard time not slipping up, exposing the watch. Amazing light fit on my wrist. I just finished a 20 day field excursion which wasn’t all work and the watch NEVER left my wrist. I have an ADPT pass through for field work and I cannot wait to put that buttery smooth leather band back on for date night with the lady. Through 85 degree tropical days, red jungle clay, and walking through the thick stuff the watch remained as it was when I bought it, shiny and scratch free. The dial lum lasts through the night. It isn’t diver bright but will always shine for a 0400 time check.

The watch survived multiple surf sessions, freedives, 3 runs a week, cliff jumps, and a 8,000ft peak. Just another work trip. The average was +1.7 sec per day of deviation.

Now the bad. The lugs are sharp and flat. I snarled our new sheets with the edge of a lug. Over the last five months the edges have naturally rounded but out of the box it was a weapon! A curved lug profile and refined edges are a small gripe but still a feature to be aware of.

Does the watch ever leave my wrist? Yes, be real. Does it call from the watch case as the most relevant watch to wear? Of course because it is. Swap the band and suit up or get dirty with some canvas, its ready, the Weiss family are amazing people, and I am honored to have a watch.

High quality and impressive workmanship!

My first piece from Weiss and it won't be my last. Love the bespoke niche story of the company and the watch has already drawn attention on my wrist.
This is a classic...

Stunning watch

I’m super happy with my field watch, you a see the love and attention that went into making it.

American Horology at it's Finest!

I purchased a Weiss white dial, 38mm number 136 with the San Francisco C.A. notation in early 2020. I have worn this watch regularly in all sorts of weather & activities from hiking, camping, fishing to a night at the Sydney Opera House (a fancy strap change). In all of that time it has never looked out of place nor let me down in it's accuracy.
I recently took my most worn (favourite) steel watches out to demagnetise them & place them on my timegrapher to see how they were each performing.
I was surprised by some of the results considering the prices paid for one or two of those favourites. The watch that came out on top was (Yep you guessed it!) my hand built, hand wound small seconds Weiss. After more that two (2) years of pretty solid use, The timegrapher showed the following:
BEATs PER HOUR: 21600 (3hz). BEAT ERROR: 0. AMPLITUDE: 302. BEAT RATE: 0 0 0 +1 0 0 -1 0 0.
It left me amazed, surprised & truly grateful that I had purchased this watch.
The ONLY complaint I have ever had was that there was "mild" lume on the hands only. I have always desired really great luminosity for night time use, especially when out bush.
DO NOT hesitate to pay the current asking price for one of Cameron Weiss's watches. They are THE best "bang for buck" proposition you're likely to get anywhere, anytime!
I'm trying to get the cash together to buy his centre second with date but the exchange rate with the Aussie $ is currently in the toilet....... Guess I'll have to be patient.
