Discover Vaer’s New R1 Chronographs

Vaer has just expanded its collection of R1 chronographs launched in 2022 with seven new references, dedicated to maritime, racing and stealth activities.

The new timepieces feature a tricompax layout on the luminous dial, a steel case on the outside with many strap options and a Meca Quartz movement inside.

And starting with the R1 USA Rally and R1 Tactical, both embrace the same type of steel case with dimensions of 40mm wide, 13mm high and 48mm, smooth bezel, sapphire glass, screw-down crown and case back and 100m of water resistance. The R1 Tactical comes with black PVD-coated.

On the dial, we can find TV-shaped counters with a 24-hour register at 3 o’clock bicolour with day and night hours, a running second at 6 o’clock and a 60-minute counter at 9 o’clock. Syringe hands, like the applied hour markers, are all filled with Super-LumiNova and also a tachymeter inner bezel.

The R1 USA Rally comes with a beige or black dial and yellow, red and blue accents, while the R1 Tactil features a black dial, green accents and lumed counters and chapter ring.

Then we have the R1 USA Ocean Racer, which comes in two case sizes, 38 or 42mm. The round steel case features wider lugs and the same applies to the crown and pushers, a black 12 hours bezel, sapphire crystal, screwed solid case back and 100m water resistance.

The beige or black dial also features a tricompax design, although here the registers come round, with details in yellow, orange and blue, with the same applied hour markers and hands as the R1 Rally and Tactil, and finally a minute/second track along the edges.

Inside, the Meca-Quartz VK63 movement powers the seven new Vaer R1 Chronographs, featuring an accuracy of -10/+20 seconds per month and a battery life of 40 months.

The new chronographs can be purchased with a variety of strap options, such as nylon, rubber, leather and steel and with prices ranging from USD 399 to USD 499.
