Our team is working hard to keep up with order demand, as we do have a back-order list on all watches and Horween products. We're planning on a restock and relaunch in the next 1-2 weeks. If you would like to stay in the loop on restocks and other Vaer news, sign up above.   More back order information and timing here. 

We’re excited to introduce the second version of our Vaer Classic line. Built off of our incredibly popular first line, we’ve gathered customer feedback and applied improvements to an already incredible watch. We’ve made a number of changes —  a refined case design, improved lug and crown ergonomics, increased lume strength, along with a 5 Jewel Swiss Made Movement.

See our Journal Entry for more information around the new line. 

The Vaer Field Watch represents a commitment to functional simplicity and the freedom that comes from living with less. In an era of increasing complexity, our goal was to build a watch that simply tells the time and works anywhere. This not only meant engineering the watch to be watertight and durable but also designing a visual aesthetic that is refined enough to fit any style.

To further enhance the flexible functionality of the watch, this includes one Made in USA Two Piece Horween Leather strap, as well as a nylon slide through band of your choice.

The Horween Leather strap is made of some of the highest quality leather in the world and uses quick release springbars for easier swapping of straps.

Assembled in America

Our company is strongly committed to supporting craftsmanship and local manufacturing in the United States. Every Vaer watch is hand-assembled and pressure tested in Los Angeles by our team of skilled technicians. The 18 individual components of the Classic Watch include a 316L stainless steel case, a scratchproof sapphire crystal, miniature gaskets and spacers, custom curved springbars and a durable Swiss quartz movement.

Guaranteed Waterproof

Water resistance ratings in watches work on an ATM (atmosphere) scale. Most watches use 3ATM (30 meter) as a base resistance. Because the rating is at static pressure, you could breach the seal of a 3ATM watch while washing your hands. Our goal was to build a watch you could dive with and this meant achieving a 10ATM (100 meter) rating. We achieved this by using an extra-thick sapphire crystal, a rotating caseback with a round rubber gasket, and a threaded screwdown crown that maintains a quality seal at the most vulnerable point of the watch.

Interchangeable Bands

To further enhance the functionality of the product, every Vaer Classic Watch comes standard with two interchangeable NATO-style bands. Our standard band is made from a dense nylon weave that is comfortable, waterproof, and strong enough to withstand 350 pounds of direct tension. The band features 13 laser cut holes, spaced 5mm apart and spanning a range between 155mm and 215mm. We also offer a waxed leather strap, handmade in downtown Los Angeles from premium American cowhide.

Very happy

Great watch. Very nice simple design, good value and highly functional. Just what I was after. Shipping to the UK was quick and easy.

Almost Perfect

This is a nearly perfect quartz watch. It has a nice heft that feels higher quality than most quartz watches, and the dial is really well-designed. 40mm is a great all-purpose for most people and the 20mm lug width will accept many replacement bands. Unlike the deafening Timex Weekender, this quartz movement is very quiet. I really only have two qualms with this watch: first, the watch face is not nearly as green as the product images suggest. It has a more iridescent quality, shifting from completely black to a dark green at certain angles. However, this leads me to the second issue: no anti-reflective coating on the crystal. In order for for the dial to appear green it needs to be in a direct light source, but at that angle there is so much glare on the crystal that you really can't appreciate the color. It's a shame, because otherwise it's a wonderful, well-made timepiece that supports American workers. At some point I may even consider swapping the crystal for an AR-coated one because that dial deserves to be seen!

Heritage dark / nylon

I have been looking for a moderately priced quality field watch awhile. This Vaer Heritage watch is exactly what I had in mind. The watch is easy to read without wearing my glasses . The significant length differences between the minute and hour hands and size of the hands make this work for me. I like the looks of the watch. It fits nicely on my wrist. Switching nylon bands is also a great feature. This is a very cool watch.
