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 Vaer Heritage collection. Inspired by the standard issue military watches of the 1940s, this new line-up represents our latest effort to combine rugged durability with a truly timeless design.

The Vaer Heritage uses the same refined case design, improved lug and crown ergonomics, and 5 Jewel Swiss Made Movement of Vaer Field. We’ve also upgraded the lume to BGW9 Superlume for a blue glow in low light.

The leather strap is hand made in the USA from a single piece of Horween leather. Each included strap slides easily in and out of the watch for simple changing.Assembled and tested by our team of skilled technicians in Los Angeles, California.

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 Straps

To further enhance the functionality of the product, every Vaer watch comes standard with two interchangeable straps. Our standard strap is made from a dense nylon weave that is comfortable, waterproof, and strong enough to withstand 350 pounds of direct tension. The strap features 13 laser cut holes, spaced 5mm apart and spanning a range between 155mm and 215mm. We also offer a Horween leather strap, tanned in Chicago and cut and sewn in the USA.

Great watch, better service

I had a couple glitches with the delivery of this watch, but Ryan and his team could not have been better about addressing them. And it was wroth the wait--the watch is outstanding, perfect size for a casual watch, easy to read, great build quality. The hunter green face is very dark--in a lot of light it looks black--but it's exactly what I was hoping for.

Simplistic Elegantance

Incredible design without being cluttered. In the week I have owned a Vaer, I have received more interest than the $7000 Breitling I have owned for years. Vaer is the epitome of a true American start up!

Great quality; looks a little cheap

I loved the great quality of the watch, especially the sapphire crystal and the screw-down crown. However the watch looks a little cheap (flat crystal and papery face) and at 40mm it's probably below average size of what most guys will love. For me personally 42mm looks much better, and yes, 2mm makes a noticeable difference.
