Automatic Movement

Convenience & Accuracy

The twelve military field watches commissioned at the onset of WW2, commonly known as “The Dirty Dozen”, are among the most collectible, and historically relevant timepieces ever made. In 2019, we brought the iconic design back to life in a limited release, and funded the campaign in less than a week. In 2023, we’re excited to announce the return of our most iconic model, a true-to-size 36mm, automatic, Swiss Made field watch, powered by a beautifully decorated Sellita SW260 movement.

Original WW2 Case Size

True-to-form 36mm case diameter

Building on the success of our original A12 Dirty Dozen releases, this iteration continues to incorporate the design and specs of the original 1940s models, most notably the compact 36mm case, one of the only modern iterations of the W.W.W. design available in the diameter.

Iconic Aesthetics

The quintessential 1940s Field Watch

Like all Vaer watches, our goal with the A12 was to combine collector oriented aesthetics with our own function-first design ethos. The Dirty Dozen is inspired by the requirements of the British Ministry of Defense during World War II. Ordered from 12 Swiss companies (commonly refered to as “The Dirty Dozen”) these watches are among the most collectable, and historically relevant timepieces ever made.

Why are we making this watch?

Since it was first released in 2019, the A12 Dirty Dozen has always been one of our most sought after models, and we're excited to bring it back a third time as a response to customer demand, and to help share the incredible history of this unique timepiece with an even wider audience.

Starting at $899

We're incredibly excited to bring this watch back for 2023 - and we know that demand is high. We're aiming to launch the model late April 2023, with shipping on a first-come, first serve basis.
