Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and deals. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There aren’t many American-based watchmakers these days, but of those who are assembling watches in the old U.S. of A, Vaer is doing it right. Started in 2016, Vaer set out to make watches that are timeless, rugged and economical. Building off of the success of its quartz offerings, Vaer is launching its first automatic watch: the Vaer A5 with Miyota 9015 movement. The stainless-steel case is 40mm in diameter, and both the watch and strap are ocean-ready with water resistance up to 100 meters. Vaer offers buyers the option of having their watch assembled in the United States with the Miyota 9015 movement or made in Switzerland with an ETA 2824 movement. Whichever option suits your fancy, this is a handsome watch that will work for every occasion. If you’re looking for a more affordable option, Vaer also offers ocean-ready quartz watches starting as low as $129.
