Our team is working hard to keep up with order demand, as we do have a back-order list on all watches and Horween products. We're planning on a restock and relaunch in the next 1-2 weeks. If you would like to stay in the loop on restocks and other Vaer news, sign up above.   More back order information and timing here. 

We’re excited to introduce the second version of our Vaer Classic line. Built off of our incredibly popular first line, we’ve gathered customer feedback and applied improvements to an already incredible watch. We’ve made a number of changes —  a refined case design, improved lug and crown ergonomics, increased lume strength, along with a 5 Jewel Swiss Made Movement.

See our Journal Entry for more information around the new line. 

The Vaer Classic Watch represents a commitment to functional simplicity and the freedom that comes from living with less. In an era of increasing complexity, our goal was to build a watch that simply tells the time and works anywhere. This not only meant engineering the watch to be watertight and durable but also designing a visual aesthetic that is refined enough to fit any style.

To further enhance the flexible functionality of the watch, this includes one Made in USA Two Piece Horween Leather strap, as well as a nylon slide through band of your choice.

The Horween Leather strap is made of some of the highest quality leather in the world and uses quick release springbars for easier swapping of straps.

        Assembled in America

        Our company is strongly committed to supporting craftsmanship and local manufacturing in the United States. Every Vaer watch is hand-assembled and pressure tested in Los Angeles by our team of skilled technicians. The 18 individual components of the Classic Watch include a 316L stainless steel case, a scratchproof sapphire crystal, miniature gaskets and spacers, custom curved springbars and a durable Swiss quartz movement.

        Guaranteed Waterproof

        Water resistance ratings in watches work on an ATM (atmosphere) scale. Most watches use 3ATM (30 meter) as a base resistance. Because the rating is at static pressure, you could breach the seal of a 3ATM watch while washing your hands. Our goal was to build a watch you could dive with and this meant achieving a 10ATM (100 meter) rating. We achieved this by using an extra-thick sapphire crystal, a rotating caseback with a round rubber gasket, and a threaded screwdown crown that maintains a quality seal at the most vulnerable point of the watch.

        Interchangeable Bands

        To further enhance the functionality of the product, every Vaer Classic Watch comes standard with two interchangeable NATO-style bands. Our standard band is made from a dense nylon weave that is comfortable, waterproof, and strong enough to withstand 350 pounds of direct tension. The band features 13 laser cut holes, spaced 5mm apart and spanning a range between 155mm and 215mm. We also offer a waxed leather strap, handmade in downtown Los Angeles from premium American cowhide.

        Field Black with Horween Quick Release

        This is an extremely well built watch. In the future however, I hope they come out with a 44 mm watch as well. Also, having the Horween leather strap is awesome, but changing to a nato is a pain. If I had to do it again, it would get the leather nato instead of the quick release two piece strap. This is a great watch and I do recommend it.

        I Love This Watch

        For the cost, this watch is the sleekest and best designed watch I have worn. It fits my wrist incredibly well and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I will definitely buy another watch from Vaer in the future.

        I love my watch. Everyone whose seen it admires it. People can’t believe the price was so reasonable. The nylon band is comfortable and keeps it sporty. I also bought the leather band to go with work clothes. A bonus was that Ryan communicates with me directly when I had questions. Love the watch.
