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, the watch includes one Made in USA Horween Leather strap, as well as one 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 and tested by our team of skilled technicians in Los Angeles, California.

        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.

        Vaer watch

        so far my experience is very goo. I had recently purchased a watch from a different company and a few days after I got it I realized that it was running slow. I returned it and bought the Vaer watch. It runs perfectly, looks cool, and I really like being able to switch the bands out depending on what I'm wearing on a given day.

        Overall looks good

        Better than Expected

        If you are on the fence about this watch, I can tell you from my experience that I was really pleased with the quality of the watch, and the service. The face of the watch is slightly off white and gives it a much richer look. The Horween leather strap is really nice. Recently I was looking to replace the leather strap on another watch, and after looking at all kinds of straps I did not see one even half this good. That and the service is the best! I highly recommend!!

        Light-weight, perfect size, great looking,

        Light-weight, perfect size, great looking, all occasion watch. A couple of minor issues. I wish the 24 hr markings were larger, as I am old and can't see, and I wish the indices would illuminate on the white faces. But, I guess it's difficult to make black indices glow. A great value. I will be purchasing the automatic model in the future.

        Great quality at a great price

        I am very happy with my watch, which feels much more expensive than it was and is very solid. I am also extremely pleased with the personal customer service I have received. I definitely recommend Vaer if you want a great watch at a great price.
