This American Issue timepiece includes a CAL 1003 movement from Weiss’ 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 the 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 black accents proudly declaring the Los Angeles, California heritage. The case is machined from solid 316L stainless steel 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. This American Issue Field Watch is supplied with a durable and waterproof olive green Cordura canvas strap. The American Issue Field Watch – White Dial is a limited production timepiece built by hand. The timepiece and movement are individually numbered, and delivered in our custom-built California pine wood box, also built by hand in the USA.
