Product Details

The Vaer C5 is our best-selling watch model, combining best-in-class durability with timeless design and functionality. Representing the purest vision of our brand mission, the C5 is the ultimate utilitarian wristwatch - offering extreme timekeeping accuracy, impressive scratch and water resistance, easy interchangeability, and the distinctive characteristic of full United States assembly.

The C5 model is perfectly suited for underwater activity. The case back and crown use a threaded screw-down design that maintains an airtight seal, making the watch functionally waterproof. Importantly, unlike most ocean-rated watches, our USA Custom Built quartz is also incredibly slim and comfortable on the wrist, boasting a 40mm diameter and a sub-10mm thickness, which is rare on watches with a locking crown function.

To further enhance the value and "ocean-to-office" functionality of the watch, every C5 comes standard with two interchangeable bands. Our Vaer band options include a range of both ocean-ready bands designed for water-based activities and our premium Horween leather straps which are tanned in Chicago and handmade in the USA from heavy native steer hides.

In addition to Made in USA leather straps, every Vaer C5 is hand-assembled and tested in America. US-based sourcing for the C5 line increases our cost of goods nearly 30%. We’re committed to American Assembly for the C5 model, not only because it improves product quality, but because it adds a strong sense of place and personality to our brand.

Perfect gift

It was a gift for my husband for our anniversary. He needed a tough, water resistant watch and this ticked all the boxes. He absolutely loves it.

From the conclusion, I am very satisfied. I like the stem of a watch locking function and movement, 100m water resistance, quiet Ronda715 movement even when I sleep, and black dial. However, the part cut out by the comb shape of the stem of a watch is a bit rough, which gives a lot of irritation to the part that touches the back of the hand. This seems to require improvement. The new A5 product seems to have improved crown powder, but the C5 I purchased is rough. Still, I am very satisfied and I am wearing it well

Great Watch

Bought a C5 Heritage Desert Tan face watch. Researched other watches quite a bit and I loved the Vaer story and features/quality of the watch. Ordered it and am very happy with it. Great watch wears comfortably all day. I really like how you can tell thought has gone into little details. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is the lume on the watch. I'm not a watch expert so probably my bad for not knowing this, but you can't put lume on black numbers very well so the only thing that lights up at night is the arms and they don't very well. Not a huge detail to me, but I saw pictures of how the black faced one lights up and thought it was really cool. With that being said I love the watch, its kept perfect time, and you won't be disappointed with this piece.

Nice watch

Very nice everyday watch. I agree with the others, that the horween leather band is not really worth it. Get the silicone and nylon bands. Otherwise the watch is just what I was looking for.

Quick Release Strap

Quick Release Strap

Classic-style two piece watch strap

Our Quick Release Straps are fixed to the watch with a quick release spring bar (no tools necessary). Two piece straps allow a closer fit to the wrist, and generally a more comfortable experience. If you’re not sure which to choose, this is probably the best option. Available in Nylon, Silicone, and Horween Leather.

Single Pass Strap

Single Pass Strap

Military-style one piece watch strap

Our single pass straps are made from a single piece of material, so they easily slide in and out of the watch. Because the straps slide under both spring bars, this is the most durable solution - if a spring bar ever fails, the watch will still be connected to the watch by the second spring bar. Available in Nylon and Horween Leather.
