Limited editions watches don’t normally start rolling out just two years after a company’s first year in business, but Weiss Watches pulls off the feat like a pro. This month, they dropped their first ever limited run two Field Watches, featuring new dial color combinations and Horween Shell Cordovan straps. Not only are they fine looking timepieces, but with quality, good ol’ made in the U.S.A. craftsmanship behind them, they’re a solid investment.

The Limited Issue Dark Blue Dial Field Watch features a dark blue dial, latte numerals, silver hands with latte lume, and brown handmade Horween Shell Cordovan strap. Only 100 pieces will be produced. The Limited Issue Black Dial Field watch features a black dial, latte numerals, silver hands with latte lume, on a black tonal handmade Horween Shell Cordovan strap. Only 200 pieces will be produced. New Shell Cordovan strap options will also be available.

As to why Weiss is going limited run before their junior year? Cameron Weiss, Weiss Watch Company founder and master watchmaker stated, “We are asked all the time for special versions of our watches. We felt it was time to release a set of limited issue timepieces to mark our two year anniversary.”

Current Weiss timepieces feature a Swiss made mechanical movement that is hand finished and assembled in Los Angeles. All stainless steel cases, case parts, case-back screws, dials, crowns, gaskets, sapphire crystal, spring bar tools and white pine packaging are designed, engineered and manufactured in California. Weiss is, as of now, the only watchmaker in the United States designing, engineering, and manufacturing their own cases and dials, as well as finishing each movement by hand.

The Limited Edition Field Watches will be available only on the Weiss website, and soon through select Barney’s New York locations.

Both editions retail for $1500, featuring individual serial numbers and Certificates of
Authenticity.

Are you ready to embark on a journey where time meets artistry? Longines watches, in an exclusive collaboration with Hodinkee, introduces the mesmerizing Longines Spirit Zulu Time Limited Edition. This timepiece is not merely a watch; it's a harmonious blend of innovation, history, and unmatched craftsmanship that sets it apart in the world of horology.
A journey through time
The Longines Spirit Zulu Time pays homage to the brand's rich heritage, drawing inspiration from the first Longines wristwatch with dual time zones produced in 1925. The Zulu flag on its dial symbolizes the universal time used by aviators and armed forces, infusing the watch with a touch of history and adventure. Limited to 500 numbered pieces, this GMT model was introduced in the Longines Spirit collection in 2022, making it a sought-after collector's item.

What sets this watch apart is its 39mm case, meticulously crafted from Grade 5 titanium. Lighter and tougher than steel, this alloy provides the watch with understated elegance and exceptional wearer comfort. The bi-directional, circular-brushed titanium bezel, engraved with a 24-hour scale, adds a distinctive touch. The screw-down crown, also made of titanium, allows independent setting of the time zone and time, catering to the needs of the modern traveler.

Wind of Change watch on wrist

The masses remember many different moments in history as turning points in the path humans take. Some take us toward destruction, like the development of the atomic bomb, and others take us closer to serenity and peace, like the end of World War II. Some lead to others, some seem isolated, but all create lasting impacts on our collective memory and view of the world. The style and the fashion industry are not immune to those moments and will create garments and entire style trends from them. From WWII-inspired coats and boots to the lasting impact it has on men's watches with the best field watches and pilot watches.

One of the more recent events that shaped our world today was the end of the Cold War and the way the fall of the Berlin Wall signified a reunification of a Germany ripped apart for half a century. Many industries created their own interpretations of the time, from movies and books to politics and music. Wind of Change by The Scorpions became the anthem by which we celebrated the unification of Germany after years of post-war division. Now, Col & MacArthur offers the Wind of Change watch, which finds a way to remind us all of a time when we overcame division to become united once again.
