"If you drew a three-way Venn diagram that compared
style, durability, and price, Vaer’s watches would be dead center."
We're excited to officially introduce our vision for the perfect everyday diver. Simultaneously traditional and modern, elegant and rugged - this watch is an unrivaled, everyday-wearer, with the specs and credentials to put $2000+ watches to shame.
Water Resistance Rating
All Vaer watches are ocean-ready. The D5 goes to the limits of real-world depth exposure.
The D5 features a scratch resistant double domed top crystal, and a sapphire caseback.
Assembly and Testing
The D5 is assembled and tested in America, and includes a signed certificate from the technician.
20ATM tested with a locking crown
Vaer has always been an ocean-based brand. Headquartered half a mile from the Pacific coastline, we view water resistance not merely as a hypothetical "nice-to-have," but as a functional everyday necessity. While the locking 10ATM rating of our current watch line-up covers 95% of in-water use cases, it was important that the Diver went a step above. At 20ATM we believe this watch will cover all real-world depth exposures, while maintaining highly requested aesthetic features such as slim profile and a sapphire exhibition caseback.
2x Easy Change Straps
Endless Customization with Extra Straps
The D5 collection offers a range of customization, not only offering a wide range of dial designs, but also a full lineup of our 20mm interchangeable straps. All D5 watches now come standard a comfortable and functional waterproof Tropic strap, and your choice of a custom second strap, which include options such as our USA made Horween Leathers straps, our premium quick release steel bracelet, and a range of ocean-ready nylon designs. To add even more functionality to your watch, you can also bundle a 3rd strap of your choice, from our full range of color combinations.
Assembled in USA
An investment in American craftsmanship
Your daily wristwatch is an incredibly important and personal object, and we think you should have a choice of where it's put together. While we do offer the choice of Swiss and Asian assembly, our core offering is USA assembly by our team of technicians. The D5 line is powered by the ultra-thin Japanese made 9039 movement, though we are exploring the option of an American made movement in the future.
