Essentially Unbeatable

What's the best possible watch you could make for under $150? That was guiding question in creating the Vaer S5. Are there cheaper alternatives out there? Sure - do those cheaper options feature an award-winning case design, and a guaranteed waterproof warranty? Definitely not. While this may be the introductory Vaer watch, it's also the best value, with design and durability that punches far above the price point.


Water Resistance Rating

Love the water? The Vaer S5 is perfectly suited for swimming, surfing and diving.


Glass Crystal

The S5 feature a scratch resistant sapphire crystal built to handle extreme outdoor use.



C1 SuperLuminova

The S5 features best-in-class lume paint that maintains a visible glow well into the night.

Guaranteed Waterproof

10ATM tested with a locking crown

Vaer has always been an ocean-based brand. Headquartered half a mile from the Pacific coastline, we view water resistance not merely as a hypothetical "nice-to-have," but as a functional everyday necessity. While all Vaer watches are guaranteed waterproof, the S5 is particularly well suited to extended ocean adventures, boating trips, and overland backpacking due to the extreme accuracy of quartz powered watches. While the Vaer mechanical A5 and A7 collections offer elevated technical craftsmanship, the S5 quartz is the best set-it-and-forget option for outdoor use.

2x Easy Change Straps

Endless Customization with Additional Straps

One of the unique features of S5 collection is a standard set of 2 nylon single pass straps, which are based on the top selling combinations of our other lines. However all Vaer straps are fully compatible with the S5 - allowing a huge amount of customization by adding a 3rd or 4th strap. Pairing the watch with our USA made Horween Leathers straps, or our range of ocean-ready nylon and silicone designs help keep the watch feeling new, even with years of everyday use.

Built to Last

Bringing an end to planned obsolescence

Your daily wristwatch is an incredibly important and personal object. Regardless of price point, we're dedicated to the idea that watches should grow more valuable over time as they collect memories, and confront new challenges. The Vaer S5 is powered by a battery that will keep accurate time for 3-5 years. After this period, the battery can be easily replaced either by a local watch shop, by our team of technicians in Los Angeles (via mail), or if you have the tools, at home on your workbench.

Built to Last a Lifetime

Vaer is a small self-funded company, and we’ve spent countless hours designing and building the S5 watch. We hope you love it as much as we do. But if for some reason there's a problem or it's not a fit, you can get in touch with us, and as the founders we'll do everything we can to ensure you have a positive experience with our brand.
