Professional Grade
Individually Made

We're excited to officially introduce our vision for the perfect everyday diver. Simultaneously traditional and modern, elegant and rugged - this watch is an unrivaled, everyday-wearer, with the specs and credentials to put $2000+ watches to shame.  


Water Resistance Rating

All Vaer watches are ocean-ready. The D5 goes to the limits of real-world depth exposure.


Domed Crystal

The D5 features a scratch resistant double domed top crystal, and a sapphire caseback.


Assembly and Testing

The D5 is assembled and tested in America, and includes a signed certificate from the technician.

Guaranteed Waterproof

20ATM tested with a locking crown

Vaer has always been an ocean-based brand. Headquartered half a mile from the Pacific coastline, we view water resistance not merely as a hypothetical "nice-to-have," but as a functional everyday necessity. While the locking 10ATM rating of our current watch line-up covers 95% of in-water use cases, it was important that the Diver went a step above. At 20ATM we believe this watch will cover all real-world depth exposures, while maintaining highly requested aesthetic features such as slim profile and a sapphire exhibition caseback.

2x Easy Change Straps

Endless Customization with Extra Straps

The D5 collection offers a range of customization, not only offering a wide range of dial designs, but also a full lineup of our 20mm interchangeable straps. All D5 watches now come standard a comfortable and functional waterproof Tropic strap, and your choice of a custom second strap, which include options such as our USA made Horween Leathers straps, our premium quick release steel bracelet, and a range of ocean-ready nylon designs. To add even more functionality to your watch, you can also bundle a 3rd strap of your choice, from our full range of color combinations.

Assembled in USA

An investment in American craftsmanship

Your daily wristwatch is an incredibly important and personal object, and we think you should have a choice of where it's put together. While we do offer the choice of Swiss and Asian assembly, our core offering is USA assembly by our team of technicians. The D5 line is powered by the ultra-thin Japanese made 9015 movement, though we are exploring the option of an American made movement in the future.

Explore the Collection

The D5 USA Diver is available in 5 complimentary design combinations, building on the core case with unique details and finishing. The line-up ranges from the refined and contemporary Atlantic, to the historic, military inspired Pacific and Arctic, to the bold, design-forward Tropic. While we have a hard time picking a favorite, if you need help choosing a design, we're always here to provide our advice.
