"Proud of my watches"

"I've bought three watches from them now and plan on getting more. My hope is that a potential customer is doing exactly as I did, doing my research, somewhat jaded and skeptical, trying to mull through the BS. I can assure you that what you see is what you get, solid understated quality. If you're looking for a timepiece that is made from great materials, assembled in the USA with a variety of classic designs, look no further."


"500 miles and still ticking"

"I wore my Vaer throughout our pilgrimage across Spain's Camino de Santiago. We hiked 500 miles and weight, performance and functionality were critical. The timepiece performance was exceptional and the water proofing features came in handy during rain soaked days. The nylon bands were perfect during the day and the leather strap was a nice upgrade for after hours R&R. Kudos to the VAER team for optimizing form, fit, and functionality. "


"My favorite watch ever"

"I've owned the first edition of the D7 Arctic for about a year and a half now, and I can say definitively that it is hands-down my favorite watch I've ever owned. It is stylish, reserved, tough, and accurate. Last year I wore it on a trip to Maui (see photo), and it went through 8 days of swimming, sand, and hiking without missing a beat. "

    My first Vaer, but not my last

    I received the R1 Cream 38mm a week ago and it has exceeded my expectations. I bought this watch on preorder and it was definitely worth the wait. The R1 ticks all the boxes: - sporty retro design - quality look and feel - American assembled - excellent veterans discount I will purchase another Vaer soon. Trying to decide if I should get the D5 Tropic or the A5 Field.

    Amazing quality fit and finish.

    This single pass strap works perfectly on the Atlantic Solar Diver that I purchase as a self gift last Christmas. Your customer service team was spot on and I couldn't be more plesae! Thank Vaer, David in the PNW

    A fantastic brand

    It’s one of the very few watches that I wouldn’t change a single aspect of. Size is perfect. Build is excellent. quality is outstanding. Excellent lume. The solar movement kicks it up a notch. Puts it in the category LumTEC, and other brands that are military related. But without the tool watch structure. I just love the brand it’s my third Vaer. In my opinion the D4 is the best one yet.

    Brilliant chronograph at a reasonable price

    Very pleased with my R1 Chronograph. Such a handsome design. The combination of brushed and polished surfaces on the case in particular is very well done. I got the black version, and legibility is excellent, particularly for a chronograph. You can dress it up, or dress it down. Looks good with anything, and the 38mm size is perfect for my modest-size wrist. I have to say, I did have a small issue with my watch. I could have lived with it, but Vaer had a replacement to me within a few days. Beyond impressed with the customer service and overall experience. More than anything, I'm impressed with the watch!

    My 4th VAER

    I’ve been very happy with the VAER watches and this is my fourth one…maybe my favorite with the black case. It’s perfectly simple and the finish is top quality. I’m interested to see how well the black coating holds up. I love that you guys inquired with customers on what they wanted to see. This was my vote. Nice work as usual VAER!
