At the time of this writing I have several Solitudes, but this was my first one. I first came across Raven watches when searching for Tudor 58 homages; Raven had produced a few variants no longer available. Further searches led me to a review of the Worn and Wound Limited Edition collaboration and I was hooked. That LE watch sold out fairly quickly but the Green - Gold was still available and I can say without reservation it's in a class by itself. I would wear any permutation of the Solitude but this Green - Gold, not unlike the Worn and Wound LE collaboration, stands out. The gilt effect on the bezel right down into the dial is incredibly striking and compelling, but even much more so with the green dial. And that green dial delivers a similar chameleon effect as the blue dial Solitude; it changes from a bright, organic green to a grey-green forest on the horizon at dusk tone -- very compelling! Some say the Green - Gold Solitude is similar to a Seiko Alpinist but I would choose this version any day. Recommended!
This is my third Raven Solitude and the workmanship, beauty, function, and pesonality of these watches continues to endure. All Solitudes share the lovely mix of a brushed and polished organic case. The blue dial Solitude sets it apart from the others by it's chameleon effects, changing from bright powder blue in daylight to winter dusk grey bue in partial light. The applied indices are tasteful and really bring the dial to life, and the bright blue lume is striking and long-lasting. Paired with the bold but refined stainless Raven bracelet or a handmade brown or black leather band, or perhaps complimentary orange Nato, this watch is versatile. The overall design speaks to a bold, but very refined watch suitable for any wrist or occasion. Recommended!

Great looking dive style watch with quality feel and features of a watch at a much higher price point. Size is perfect for most wrists. Would buy again.
Beautiful and incredible diving watch with the precision of a Swiss chronometer. The price is extremely fair.
Bronze wears like no other. It's constantly changing. That coupled with the amazing quality of Raven watches and you have a opportunity to own a truly unique time piece. I love wearing it!!!
As usual this Raven exceeded expectations. Buy from Raven with confidence.
Great watch. Really solid and comfortable on the wrist. I wasn’t impressed with the bracelet via the pictures but once in person it’s one of the best bracelets I’ve ever worn. I’ve heard of the crown concerns however it’s not an issue for me. The crown has enough exposed on the top to easily turn. Ratchet clasp are the best and can not go back to any other after having one. My first raven watch but won’t be my last.
Quality is better than expected. I think it is better than other Alligator Embossed Rubber Straps. I chose this brand because there is no stitching detail which in the long run may cause of breakage. Highly recommended!
I was in the market for a bronze-cased watch, especially to wear in fall and winter. This Trekker came on the market and I didn't hesitate to place my oder. Like my first Raven, the light-blue dialed Solitude, I immediately felt I was wearing a solidly constructed piece. To my surprise, the dial color popped and the added feature of a domed crystal made for interesting plays with sunlight. Trekker's stellar reputation as an outdoorsman's "go-to" model is well deserved. Another amazing job on the design, Steve!
Steve is always on the ball and even sent me the bracelet sized! I appreciate the superior customer service.
I've had my Solitude for almost four months now and still really like it! The bezel action is smooth, the case is distinct and features a good mix of polished and brushed surfaces, and the dial is a very charming shade of blue that adapts well to multiple outfits and environments. The screw down crown also feels high quality and I've had this watch in multiple lakes and pools, with the water resistance absolutely holding up. I highly recommend this product if you're in the market for a quality and versatile sport watch.
I am getting many compliments on the style.
No nonsense with this diver; solid, legible, reliable. It also ticks an aesthetic box for me in its design. I really like the late 60’s/early 70’s shape of the case - at least that’s what I get from it.
I’ve used it on about 10 dives now, and it still looks mint!
An excellent option for active wearing.
I bought a W&W collaborated Solitude, which came with the rubber dive band. Loved the watch, but felt like it needed an upgrade. The metal bracelet was a perfect compliment to the watch. Very satisfied!
