One of the few brands to actually make their movements on U.S. soil, Weiss holds a special place in our hearts. And while their standard catalog of offerings is an exceptional one, to say the least, it just got a lot more enticing. That’s because — after 5 years of development — they’ve just unveiled their limited-edition Weiss American Issue Field Watch Ultralight.
While the styling of this field watch is very much on-par with its standard brethren, this new edition has some pretty big upgrades you might not otherwise see at first glance. That starts with the case, which is now made from titanium — lending credence to the “Ultralight” part of the name. That’s furthered by the inclusion of an aerospace-grade 7075 aluminum alloy movement. That makes Weiss the first-ever watch brand to use this material in the construction of a movement. It’s also manually-wound with a 46-hour power reserve, has a sapphire crystal and an exhibition caseback, and it comes with a gorgeous Horween leather strap. This all-American timepiece can be yours now for $2,800 — but you’d better act quickly, as only 100 will ever be made.
