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 Super-LumiNova BGW9 for a blue glow in low light.

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.

I love the watch, fashionable with the outdoor toughness. I like the idea the choice of two bands. The nylon band style needs to been designed better or an additional band choice needs to be made available. The end of the band is too long and I have to tuck in the band.

Great watch

Simple and just what I need in a timepiece. Couldn’t be happier that I bought it

Crown of thorns.

The watch is very nice except for the crown which is like a medevil torture device. I had to apply nail polish to mine otherwise it would be unwearable.

Amazing watch

I have worn the watch for a week now using it both as a dress/office watch and as a weekend gym, hike, run watch. My Vaer is easily equal to if not exceeding the quality of watches triple the cost. The fact that it is assembled in LA closed the deal!
