A comprehensive guide to unboxing, installing, and changing bands on our all Vaer watches.

Buying a product online, especially something as important as your everyday watch, can be a daunting experience. In order to make the decision a little bit easier, we decided to put together a short stop motion video to help visualize every step of the unboxing process; from removing the blue-woven box lid to switching between different Nylon bands.

Turns out it takes a really long time to make a really short stop-motion video. If things went by a bit too fast, you can see a detailed overview of each step in the process below.

If you know anything about our brand you probably already know that every Vaer Watch is hand-assembled in Los Angeles. What we don't mention as much is that every order we receive is custom filled.

This means that once you place an order online, someone from our team has to manually pack each box based on the custom band and dial combination you've chosen. It's a logistical challenge - but one we think is worth it since it allows us to offer hundreds of dial and band combinations.

We know the watch industry pretty well, and as far as we're aware, our box design is unique in the industry.

One of the reasons for this is that we give a lot of prominence to our bands. Displaying them side-by-side at full length serves two purposes. Firstly, it gives the customer an unobstructed view of their personalized watch combination, and secondly, it serves as a subtle reminder of the 'equality' of the two bands, which are meant to complement each other and be interchanged regularly.

Every Vaer Box contains a pre-installed watch/band combination. Bands can be changed by sliding the watch case up or down on the strap - allowing the nylon to pass between the springbars.

The goal of the pass-through band design was to allow for easy interchangeability. Every Vaer watch uses 20mm straps and they can easily be swapped if you decide to purchase additional bands or watches.  

We hope this overview of the unboxing process gives you more confidence in the value and quality of our watches. We've firmly believe in our product, but if you are unhappy with the purchase for any reason you can return the order for a full refund within 30 days.
