Interview: Cameron Weiss, Owner Weiss Watch Company

Postby koimaster » December 2nd 2016, 10:36am

Many of you watch fans, especially those of you in the greater Los Angeles area, may be familiar with Weiss Watch Company. Founded in Los Angeles by watchmaker Cameron Weiss, the downtown LA-based company has a growing distribution across the city and beyond with solid positioning in shops such as Barneys New York, Wittmore and Stag Provisions on Abbot Kinney.

Recently, we exchanged a couple emails for the below interview. It's short, but it's sweet, and it's always great to receive insight straight from the horse's mouth. enJOY



Cameron, I'd like to start by asking a bit about your background: where were you born & raised, and where in Los Angeles are you currently based?

I was born in San Diego (Del Mar), and now I live in Redondo Beach.

Weiss Watch Company is restoring prestige to American watchmaking. We design and build luxury timepieces with mechanical movements by hand in Los Angeles, California. Each timepiece is individually assembled in America using American and Swiss components. 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.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
