Their Vierra watches look sharp and are built to be worn wherever life takes you, from a surfboard to the morning commute. Eric and Jeremy chose strong materials for the bands—stainless steel, genuine leather, and silicone rubber—to suit different tastes and to lend a clean, minimal look that feels, well, timeless. Each watch is waterproof with a shatterproof crystal face. Should you somehow manage to still break it (Hang-gliding? Biking? Kid tried to flush it down the toilet?), no sweat. They proudly back each watch with a lifetime guarantee. So hit the boardroom . . . or the slopes with a watch that doesn’t sacrifice style to keep up with you.

    Hi Donna, my answer is the reality of the situation. We made the decision to show the watch in a way you could read the company name. That was the detail we felt was most important in promoting Vierra. You better believe we will have David's suggestion in the back of our mind for the next watch photo shoot we do.

    It's actually our fault (the makers of Vierra) not Mike's when we first started taking pictures of the watch we thought this was a good idea to display the name correctly - it's amazing how perceptive people are so currently we use different methods but just like the clarity of this picture - it is good for sparking conversations though ;)

    Different David....but I'm sort of with the other David...I can't get over the watch being backwards. I even searched online quick to see how other watch companies showed their watches, and they're all shown properly. I noticed it immediately and frankly it's maddening. Looks like a pretty decent watch and a fair price, but I can't get past it. I'm even in the market for a new watch in this style & price, but I doubt I'll be trying this one for that very reason. Credibility lost! It's like a model wearing a tee shirt backwards because the shirt had a neat logo on the back!

    Hey David number 2 (number 1 in our hearts) - We (the makers of vierra) actually took the picture - at first we thought it would be a good idea and be one of those (easter eggs) that some people would catch and others wouldn't so it's kind of a little fun thing for us really - we didn't think SOOOOO many people would notice though which is actually awesome how perceptive people are - we didn't think it would make people angry and make us loose credibility however or we wouldn't have done it like that - thanks for your feedback we will think twice before we easter egg next time

    @Mike biggest pet peeve of mine, I've mentioned this before, and you have answered this a gabillion times. a simple format change would finally end the frustration by a small header: "click here for details", or simply give specs on the first page. I really think it deters your sales with so many folks having the same problem! ANY problem with site navigation will stop busy shoppers from purchasing?

    Great points Christopher we will add the specifications to the page and here they are for you specifically

    Case: 42mm stainless steel construction

    Crystal: Scratch resistant hardened mineral crystal

    Band: 22mm ultra thick genuine leather

    Movement: Custom Miyota Japanese quartz with date window in “6” position

    Water Resistance: 10 ATM/100m/330ft. Rated for swimming & surfing.

    So, is the watch Made in the USA? Or Made in Japan? Product details say both....

  • Mike
    Mike – Grommet Team
    2/6/2017 11:47 AM

    They're made in Japan. Watches originate based on their quartz. We mistakenly put made in the USA but have fixed it to reflect the correct info.

  • Eric

    I'm hard on watches and am wondering if the black metal band is scratch and chip resistant.

  • Eric
    Eric – Special Guest
    2/6/2017 11:45 AM

    The black metal band is scratch and chip resistant but if you were to take a sharp nail and scratch it repeatedly you would see the effects - great thing is we have a lifetime warranty that covers that sort of damage

  • Lloyd
    Lloyd
    2/6/2017 12:10 PM

    @Eric Sounds good but one more question before I buy - It is larger than I am used to - does 1.75" include the stem?

  • Eric
    Eric – Special Guest
    2/6/2017 12:31 PM

    Ask away Lloyd! With the stem it's more like 2" - to be honest the face is a little larger than I'm used to as well but it actually ends up being quite bold and stands out in a good way. The size compliments the simplicity in the watch face design and people compliment it all the time (before they even know that we own the company)

    Confused about manufacturing origins. The main description says Made in the USA, but the details under the leather watch said Made in Japan. Which is correct?

    Also, I'd enjoy seeing the diameter and thickness in metric (mm), not just inches, as metric seems more common for watches. Thanks.

  • Mike
    Mike – Grommet Team
    2/6/2017 12:01 PM

    Hi S, it is made in Japan as watches are from the origination of their quartz. It was our mistake to put 'made in the USA.'

  • Eric

    Hi, Eric. The description says the band is 3" deep and adjustable, but it doesn't really give a length range. (Saying it's 3" deep is kind of like trying to buy a pair of slacks that say the waist is 14" deep. Lol!) My husband has a big wrist and I can never find a watch that fits him.

    Hey!

    We've actually seen in fashion trends that a lot of ladies are liking bigger faced watches these days. Our watch fits most wrist sizes comfortably without being too bulky. On women the watch looks bold yet not overly done. However a lot of ladies do like the traditional smaller faces so we are going to start developing a womens line as well. Thanks for your feedback!!

  • Alexander

    2/6/2017 12:29 PM

    Confirm this watch has a BATTERY quartz movement.

    Do you lifetime warranty the battery? Also what service (every 5 years) is required and is it covered under the Lifetime Warranty?

    Last question - Is the Black Metal watchband also covered by warranty?

  • Eric
    Eric – Special Guest
    2/6/2017 12:46 PM

    The watch is battery powered and does have a quartz movement. The battery is not covered by the lifetime warranty but the black metal band is. If any thing breaks or becomes defective we will cover it.

    Eric and I are the founders of Vierra Watches which is based in the US. We do all product design and then source our parts and pieces (watch heads, straps, etc ) from japan. We assemble the watches in our various locations (VA, FL, TX) based on demand and ship them out from the US. We have partnered with Grommet to provide their awesome customer base an opportunity to check out our product. Hope this answers all of your questions!

    Attractive watch. What sort of clasp is on the metal bracelet? Deployment clasp? Any way to make a temporary adjustment in bracelet length to accommodate a wet suit (for off-season surfing)? Does the movement include a hacking mechanism (to preserve battery life and to allow for synchronization with a time standard)? Does the crown screw onto the case (to improve water resistance and to prevent accidental resetting of the time/date)? I understand that you are not making a watch that is suitable for scuba diving. However, some of us have active lifestyles that require a pretty hearty watch in order for it to be something that "never had to come off".

The launch day conversation has ended. Please direct further questions about this Grommet to our Community Experience Team.

 

Vierra

Men's Minimalist Watches

Tough Timepiece

Eric Genazia and Jeremy Wells wanted to find men’s watches that never had to come off. And they really meant never.

The guys were searching for durable, good-looking watches that wouldn’t break the bank. When they came up empty, they began designing their own.

Their Vierra watches look sharp and are built to be worn wherever
life takes you, from a surfboard to the morning commute. Eric and Jeremy chose strong materials for the bands—stainless steel, genuine leather, and silicone rubber—to suit different tastes and to lend a clean, minimal look that feels, well, timeless.

Each watch is waterproof with a shatterproof crystal face. Should you somehow manage to still break it (Hang-gliding? Biking? Kid tried to flush it down the toilet?), no sweat. They proudly back each watch with a lifetime guarantee. So hit the boardroom . . . or the slopes with a watch that doesn’t sacrifice style to keep up with you.

    Hey David number 2 (number 1 in our hearts) - We (the makers of vierra) actually took the picture - at first we thought it would be a good idea and be one of those (easter eggs) that some people would catch and others wouldn't so it's kind of a little fun thing for us really - we didn't think SOOOOO many people would notice though which is actually awesome how perceptive people are - we didn't think it would make people angry and make us loose credibility however or we wouldn't have done it like that - thanks for your feedback we will think twice before we easter egg next time

    Sad people are getting so hung up on a picture. You realize you don't have to wear it that way? LOL. It's not that serious, and to say you won't purchase simply based on that or their reasoning is a bit immature.

    @Mike biggest pet peeve of mine, I've mentioned this before, and you have answered this a gabillion times. a simple format change would finally end the frustration by a small header: "click here for details", or simply give specs on the first page. I really think it deters your sales with so many folks having the same problem! ANY problem with site navigation will stop busy shoppers from purchasing?

    Hi Christopher, it's one of the biggest pieces of feedback we get and I promise you it is not falling on deaf ears.

    So, is the watch Made in the USA? Or Made in Japan? Product details say both....

  • Mike

    2/6/2017 11:47 AM

    They're made in Japan. Watches originate based on their quartz. We mistakenly put made in the USA but have fixed it to reflect the correct info.

    I'm hard on watches and am wondering if the black metal band is scratch and chip resistant.

  • Eric
    Eric – Special Guest
    2/6/2017 11:45 AM

    The black metal band is scratch and chip resistant but if you were to take a sharp nail and scratch it repeatedly you would see the effects - great thing is we have a lifetime warranty that covers that sort of damage

  • Lloyd

    @Eric Sounds good but one more question before I buy - It is larger than I am used to - does 1.75" include the stem?

  • Eric
    Eric – Special Guest
    2/6/2017 12:31 PM

    Ask away Lloyd! With the stem it's more like 2" - to be honest the face is a little larger than I'm used to as well but it actually ends up being quite bold and stands out in a good way. The size compliments the simplicity in the watch face design and people compliment it all the time (before they even know that we own the company)

    Confused about manufacturing origins. The main description says Made in the USA, but the details under the leather watch said Made in Japan. Which is correct?

    Also, I'd enjoy seeing the diameter and thickness in metric (mm), not just inches, as metric seems more common for watches. Thanks.

  • Mike
    Mike – Grommet Team
    2/6/2017 12:01 PM

    Hi S, it is made in Japan as watches are from the origination of their quartz. It was our mistake to put 'made in the USA.'

  • Eric

    the white watch face actually has silver reflective tic marks so depending on the lighting they look slightly different colors

    Hi, Eric. The description says the band is 3" deep and adjustable, but it doesn't really give a length range. (Saying it's 3" deep is kind of like trying to buy a pair of slacks that say the waist is 14" deep. Lol!) My husband has a big wrist and I can never find a watch that fits him.

    We've actually seen in fashion trends that a lot of ladies are liking bigger faced watches these days. Our watch fits most wrist sizes comfortably without being too bulky. On women the watch looks bold yet not overly done. However a lot of ladies do like the traditional smaller faces so we are going to start developing a womens line as well. Thanks for your feedback!!

    Confirm this watch has a BATTERY quartz movement.

    Do you lifetime warranty the battery? Also what service (every 5 years) is required and is it covered under the Lifetime Warranty?

    Last question - Is the Black Metal watchband also covered by warranty?

  • Eric
    Eric – Special Guest
    2/6/2017 12:46 PM

    The watch is battery powered and does have a quartz movement. The battery is not covered by the lifetime warranty but the black metal band is. If any thing breaks or becomes defective we will cover it.

Also, please provide the name of the company doing the fulfillment and providing the guarantee as I understand Grommet is the product launch company. All the best!!

    Eric and I are the founders of Vierra Watches which is based in the US. We do all product design and then source our parts and pieces (watch heads, straps, etc ) from japan. We assemble the watches in our various locations (VA, FL, TX) based on demand and ship them out from the US. We have partnered with Grommet to provide their awesome customer base an opportunity to check out our product. Hope this answers all of your questions!

    Attractive watch. What sort of clasp is on the metal bracelet? Deployment clasp? Any way to make a temporary adjustment in bracelet length to accommodate a wet suit (for off-season surfing)? Does the movement include a hacking mechanism (to preserve battery life and to allow for synchronization with a time standard)? Does the crown screw onto the case (to improve water resistance and to prevent accidental resetting of the time/date)? I understand that you are not making a watch that is suitable for scuba diving. However, some of us have active lifestyles that require a pretty hearty watch in order for it to be something that "never had to come off".

The launch day conversation has ended. Please direct further questions about this Grommet to our Community Experience Team.
