Sad news this weekend, as we lost one of the last from the old Hollywood guard, James Garner. He raced cars with McQueen, palled around with Brando and displayed the Platonic ideal of a sport jacket with an open-collared shirt as Jim Rockford. He will be missed.

This weekend marks the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing—and by now you’ve seen plenty of photos of what the guys looked like in space suits taking small steps and giant leaps.
Last night’s ESPYS show was a roller coaster of emotion—from Drake’s antics to the moving speeches of Michael Sam and Stuart Scott.
And there were also plenty of highs and lows in the style department as well. (Let’s please end the Capri-suit trend before it even begins… ahem, Victor Cruz.)
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.
