"If you drew a three-way Venn diagram that compared
style, durability, and price, Vaer’s watches would be dead center."
What makes the A3 special? In our opinion it's the ability to maintain a perfect balance of competing ideas. Simultaneously traditional and modern, elegant and rugged, simple and complex - this watch is a humble, everyday-wearer, with the specs and credentials to put most $1000 watches to shame.
Water Resistance Rating
Love the water? The Vaer A3 is perfectly suited for swimming, surfing and diving.
The A3 feature a scratch resistant domed sapphire crystal and an exhibition caseback.
Assembly and Testing
The A3 is assembled and tested in America, and includes a signed certificate from the technician.
10ATM 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. The mechanically powered A3 is perfectly suited to extended ocean adventures, boating trips, and if the need arises, extended stays on deserted tropical islands. With no batteries, the Vaer A3 will keep time for decades with proper care.
2x Easy Change Straps
Endless Customization with Additional Straps
The A3 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 A3 watches now come standard a comfortable and functional waterproof silicone strap, and your choice of a custom second strap, which will include options such as our USA made Horween Leathers straps, 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 the 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 A3 line is powered by the ultra-thin Japanese made 9039 movement, though we are exploring the option of an American made movement in the future.
Our Strongest Lume... Ever
25x Layers of Heavy Painted C3 Superluminova
For lume lovers the A3 boasts our strongest lume performance to date, with 25x painted layers of C3 Superluminova compared to the standard 15x layers on other Vaer models. In addition to a powerful glow, the heavy lume paint gives the numerals and indexes a noticeably raised finished.
