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.

This watch is simply awesome!

I cannot say enough good things about my new watch. I ditched the smartwatch in favor of the simplicity of a watch that does exactly what I need a watch to do: tell the time, stand up to real life, and look good doing it. This one hits all the right notes, and with the interchangeable bands, can be paired with any look. Tons of compliments, too. Love it.

Simple, beautiful

I buy things to use for years on end. I appreciate the timeless beauty and simplicity of this watch. Plan to wear it 'til I'm grey in the head. A minor complaint is that the strap keeps on slipping out of the keeper. However, Ryan has been extremely responsive/helpful with my needs. Fantastic customer service, especially given limited staffing.

Great Watch

Simple, rugged and comfortable. It keeps perfect time, and the hands glow nicely in the dark.

Love this watch

I have many watches and this one is on par with some of my higher end pieces. The fit and finish is fantastic. The band's are comfortable and high quality. My only issue or complaint is that the lumen could be better. I'm considering buying one of their automatics.

Perfect Everyday Watch

I have been delighted with the watch. It is highly functional and has a vintage look that I was looking for in an everyday watch. Customer service was excellent. After I placed my online order, I wanted to change the color of the NATO strap. I sent Vaer an email and Ryan responded within 24 hours making my desired change. I am an attorney and I usually go to work in jeans or khakis unless I am in court. The watch is perfect for those "in office” days as well as after hours and casual wear on the weekends. I highly recommend the product and customer service to anyone who is seeking a high quality and reasonably priced everyday watch. Kudos to Vaer for hitting a homerun with this product!
