Product Details

Functional, attractive and highly customizable the A5 represents not only a continued investment in timeless, durable design but also our commitment to American craftsmanship and local sourcing.

The A5 model is perfectly suited for underwater activity. The caseback and crown use a threaded screw-down design that maintains an airtight seal, making the watch functionally waterproof. Importantly, unlike most ocean-rated watches, our USA Assembled Automatic is also incredibly slim and comfortable on the wrist, boasting a 40mm diameter and a sub-10mm thickness, which is rare on watches with a locking crown function.

To further enhance the value and "ocean-to-office" functionality of the watch, every A5 comes standard with two interchangeable straps. Our Vaer strap options include a range of both ocean-ready options designed for water based activities, and our premium Horween leather straps which are tanned in Chicago and handmade in the USA from heavy native steer hides.

In addition to Made in USA leather straps, every Vaer A5 is hand-assembled and tested in America. We’re committed to USA Assembly for the A5 model, not only because it improves product quality, but because it adds a strong sense of place and personality to our brand.

Great optics and value

The only issue I have had is that the anti reflexive coating has a blueish tent and makes the watch a little difficult to read in dim lighting.

Most impressive watch you'll come across.

Recieved my order on Saturday, and I have to say that I'm MORE than impressed by your product. I'm normally a dive watch guy, but your watch has surpassed my expectations. It wears more comfortably than any other watch I own! The fit and finish of your watch (MY watch) is so impressive, that it has now become my favorite time piece. I'm now a Vaer club member, and I look forward to your next product!

The watch for a “one watch” kinda guy

I haven’t worn a watch since I left middle school ( about 15 years ago) About six months ago I decided I wanted to find a timepiece to wear. After months of searching I stumbled upon Vaer and liked what I saw. I picked up the A5 and added the leather strap and I couldn’t be happier. It’s relatively light weight and looks very smart on my formerly ***** wrist. If they came out with a few new face designs I’d consider purchasing another one from this company.

Time Just Jumps Out at You!

Gotta tell you in these trying time, I always smile when I look at my A5. It is a beautiful face! It just jumps at you. The band is just a touch wider than the NATO band on my Swiss Army Watch and it feels great. I found either my wrist is narrow or the band is long so I tucked it under the second bracket, otherwise it touches the watch face. I have worn the watch every day for since it arrived on 3/9. I set it precisely and it has gained 14 seconds in 9 days or 1.5556 seconds/day. I can certainly live with that! I would rather have a watch run fast than slow any day. I looked at old Railroad type watches by Hamilton and I didn’t want to pay what they wanted. I also looked seriously at Shinola but the face was too big and the price too high. You have hit the sweet-spot and I am VERY satisfied. To have an accurate watch without a battery is magic! Stay safe and thank you!

Understated style and for the classic fellow with a modern eye

Solid. I’m pleased with the watch. Slight delay on delivery due to demand but it was worth the wait.

Quick Release Strap

Quick Release Strap

Classic-style two piece watch strap

Our Quick Release Straps are fixed to the watch with a quick release spring bar (no tools necessary). Two piece straps allow a closer fit to the wrist, and generally a more comfortable experience. If you’re not sure which to choose, this is probably the best option. Available in Nylon, Silicone, and Horween Leather.

Single Pass Strap

Single Pass Strap

Military-style one piece watch strap

Our single pass straps are made from a single piece of material, so they easily slide in and out of the watch. Because the straps slide under both spring bars, this is the most durable solution - if a spring bar ever fails, the watch will still be connected to the watch by the second spring bar. Available in Nylon and Horween Leather.
