We’ve always had a soft spot for American-made goods and the utilitarian charms of the field watch.

So we were pleased to see these new timepieces from LA-based watchmaker Weiss hit the web for preorder.

Just about everything on the watches was designed, engineered and manufactured in the US—from the forged-steel case to the brass dial, all the way down to the springs and bolts. Even the mechanical movement gets an American once-over after arriving from Switzerland. (A good horology rule of thumb: if there’s one non-American part, let it be Swiss.) What that all means is you’re getting the most American-made watch on earth. And a handsome one at that.

Here’s a closer look:
