Each Executive Issue is a special order item. It is a completely bespoke piece that is handcrafted by Cameron Weiss in an over 60-hour process, and he sources the gold in the US upon receiving an order. An order placed today will likely take at minimum 12 weeks to complete depending on the current waiting queue and will ship to you once it is ready.
We are proud to offer CAL 1003 within our American made Executive Issue Field Watch 18k - White Dial, which is manufactured and assembled in our Los Angeles workshop. In order to make this special American Issue timepiece, we go through the extra effort of not only sourcing American mined gold, but gold that is primarily mined in California.
The movement is our CAL 1003 movement from our new production line with a higher beat rate of 21,600 BPH paired with a re-engineered mainspring and the addition of a hacking feature that stops the sweep second hand when the crown is pulled out for setting. Developing these three elements advances the accuracy of our timepiece. The movement is rhodium plated and visible through an open case-back enclosed in sapphire crystal. The dial is machined from naval brass and hand-painted in white with white accents proudly declaring our Los Angeles, California heritage. The case is carefully crafted in our workshop from solid 18k yellow gold with sapphire crystals on the front and back.
Hands are black oxide treated steel with luminescent Super-Luminova paint for legibility in the dark. Dials are machined from one solid piece of naval brass and have been hand painted for maximum legibility.
The Executive Issue Field Watch is supplied with our Horween Genuine Shell Cordovan black strap. The shells endure a 6-month tanning process at Horween, the oldest operating tannery in America. Skilled artisans tan, stuff, polish, steep in vegetable liquors, hand curry, and hand shave each piece of shell. Each strap is individually handmade in the USA by expert leather craftsmen. Since each one is handcrafted, each strap has its own unique characteristics from the tanning process and handmade nature of the product. The strap is designed for comfort, style, and is made specially to fit the Field Watch with 20mm lug size and an 18mm solid 18k yellow gold buckle. The Executive Issue Field Watch is a limited production timepiece built by hand. Each individually numbered timepiece is delivered in our custom-built California pine wood box, also built by hand in the USA.
