Product Details

Simultaneously rugged and refined, the Vaer A5 represents our vision for the future. 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.

A5

I had a wonderful customer service experience during the ordering process. I looked forward to receiving my watch and wasn’t disappointed when it arrived. The appearance is sharp and time keeping is on point. I recommend this company.

A5 | Design Navy Auto Single Pass

I recently received the A5 Navy watch with the newly upgraded strap design. This watch is fantastic and is my second from Ryan and Reagan. My first watch from them was the C5 Classic White which I love due to its minimal, sophisticated look and lightweight feel. Vaer watches are not only visually well designed but are also equally well made that I am confident will last many, many years. So, now my only problem is each day I must decide which watch I'll wear! Ryan and Reagan have a lot of integrity and put a great deal of thought and effort into producing very high-quality timepieces at extremely fair prices. I'm now looking forward to their next endeavor, the dive watch!

A perfect balance between rugged and classy

What I like the most about this watch is its aesthetics, there is absolutely nothing like it anywhere near this price point. The dial manages to give you that sort of American heritage look, executed through a clean minimalist approach, classic and modern at the same time. Be sure to wear it out in the sunlight so you can truly appreciate the understated complexity of the case. I love how the single dome crystal and the different surfaces on the case play with the light, it's simply stunning. Having it shipped to Costa Rica was an ordeal thanks to the pandemic, but the guys at Vaer were really helpful and they managed to send it through in the end. Well worth the wait!

Beautiful products, Amazing service

I wasn't into watches until I stumbled upon Vaer. This is the first watch I found in my price range that matched my personality as a young professional and adventurist. I had several questions and a few complications with my order that Ryan resolved—no issue. I don't usually see professional customer service like that, even when dealing with high end products. I am a big advocate for Vaer and now so are some of my friends. Don't buy a watch anywhere else.

Awesome Field Watch

Really loving my navy blue A5 automatic. Perfectly legible dial with some splashes of colour from the seconds hand and some of the hour markers. The diameter and thickness of the watch are just right and I really like the slightly domed crystal. The only criticism I can offer is that while the lume on the hands is adequate, the amount on the arabics and markers is very little. It’s a shame because Vaer went to the trouble of using a different colour on the markers at 2,4,8 and 10, but they are too faint to be visible after just a minute. Nevertheless, I can heartily recommend this watch.

Quick Release Strap
MOST POPULAR

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.

FITS WRISTS:
160mm to 220mm
6.2 inches to 8.6 inches

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.

FITS WRISTS:
150mm to 230mm
5.8 inches to 9 inches

Single Pass Strap
