Our team is working hard to keep up with order demand, as we do have a back-order list on all orders with Horween straps (Quick Release and Single Pass). Horween straps are being built to order, and orders with these products will ship 7-10 business days from order date.  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 Classic 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, each includes one Horween slide thru leather strap and one interchangeable nylon strap of your choice. The leather strap is hand made in the USA from a single piece of Horween leather. Each included strap slides easily in and out of the watch for simple changing.

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.

So far the best watch I own

I love this this watch... It's simplicity is my favorite part about this watch. Yet, it's still feels and looks like a watch that can take a beating! As an EDC watch it's perfect... I can't wait to get my mitts on one of the automatics!

Love it

Had for a month and I love it. Seems very solid and reliable. I can dress it up with the horween leather or go casual with my Barton silicone quick release bands. Great watch - would purchase again.

Bought two

Bought two for each of my kids. Both are used everyday. My daughter uses hers for diving, teaching Pilates, surfing and playing in fine sand. No issues for over 6 months. My son uses his for workouts, fly fishing, swimming and classes. No issues as well. Money well spent. They look good and they’ve withstood more than average wear and tear. My Rolex is coming due for a tuneup and am seriously thinking of getting another Vaer for the couple of weeks it will be in the shop.
