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.
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.
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.
I love this this watch... It's simplicity is my favorite part about this watch. Yet, it's still feels and looks like a watch that can take a beating! As an EDC watch it's perfect... I can't wait to get my mitts on one of the automatics!
Love the watch, the look and the feel. Great value and I am very happy with it!
Had for a month and I love it. Seems very solid and reliable. I can dress it up with the horween leather or go casual with my Barton silicone quick release bands. Great watch - would purchase again.
very well designed. fits great. Straps are quite good. Would have been nice to have instructions on the straps. So far very happy with this purchase.
Bought two for each of my kids. Both are used everyday. My daughter uses hers for diving, teaching Pilates, surfing and playing in fine sand. No issues for over 6 months. My son uses his for workouts, fly fishing, swimming and classes. No issues as well. Money well spent. They look good and they’ve withstood more than average wear and tear. My Rolex is coming due for a tuneup and am seriously thinking of getting another Vaer for the couple of weeks it will be in the shop.
