How Does Water Resistance Work in Watches?

Why do owners love our watches?

1) Made for the Water

"Bought a watch from Costco that was supposed to be waterproof and it leaked. Decided to try Vaer, and love it. This is the best watch I have ever owned. I have three bands; one for surfing, one for working and the upgraded stainless steel for weekends, it’s like having 3 watches in 1."

Arturo A.| Verified Buyer

2) American Sourcing

"I have always been a "buy American" type of person, and I am so happy to finally be able to buy a watch that is mostly American made. It is amazing to me that you can buy an American assembled watch, that's rated to 100m, with a sapphire glass crystal for less than $300!"

Malcolm S.Β | Verified Buyer

3) Stellar Build Quality

"In my 70+ years on the planet, I've had countless watches from all over the world. I have around 100 watches now, including Omega and Rolex. But, Vaer caught my eye. Looks, style, build-quality, all 'stellar' and just what I like. So, thus far I'm a 'completely satisfied customer'! "
