Raven watches are designed with a passion for travel and adventure. Our watches are built to be functional and durable pieces of art using high tech craftsmanship - values that are important to you when selecting your next watch.
This watch has to be seen and handled to be fully appreciated. The gloss dial, the outlined indices, the polished hands - there is so much visual interest in the dial, which seems to be slightly better proportioned in this smaller size. I purchased this to replace my beloved daily wearer which was stolen from me and I'm more than happy to have it on my wrist every day.
This is my fifth Raven watch. By far the most comfortable. It has become my daily wearer. The color combination is awesome. The pictures do not do it justice.
Nice watch. High quality
I had been looking for quite a while for a classic, black 39mm black dive watch when I found the Trekker. I ordered it on the pre-order and had to wait a while but it was worth the wait. It is a beautiful, solid watch with really nice attention to detail. The quality is excellent, lovely stainless steel case and the ceramic bezel finishes the face beautifully. I have only had it 24 hours but it literally hasn't lost a second from when I set it. Steve was excellent to deal with, always replying to my emails quickly. This is a watch I will enjoy wearing forever.
I've been a big fan of Raven Watches ever since my first-generation Trekker. I still have that watch and wear it weekly. It has never failed and looks even better with some wear and tear on the case. The new Trekker 39 V2 is a brilliant evolution of the first watch, and it levels up the sophistication and refinement without losing its original utilitarian ethos. The downsized case (from 40 to 39) isn't just a tad smaller but also improved due to the smoother lugs and the shorter and smaller diameter crown. The ceramic bezel is gorgeous, ratchets with precision, and is a surprise at this price, frankly. I love the applied markers that echo the Tudor Pelagos without copying it. The tapered five-link bracelet is one of the best I've seen from a microbrand. The whole package should cost $1,200+, really. If you want only one watch to wear casually or with a suit, this is it.
My yellow dial Trekker arrived today and I'm chuffed to bits with it. The yellow dial and black sapphire bezel look great together, lume is fantastic and the bracelet is nice and easy to size and very comfortable. Well worth the wait and great job Steve!
This watch is the best thing to come out of 2020 for me. I am AMAZED by the level of detail and craftsmanship. The bracelet is fantastic - it’s very solidly built with a smooth action, and a nice balanced taper which makes it lighter and even more wearable. The value for this piece is INCREDIBLE !! Buy one now before they are gone and you’re filled with regret !
The watch feels like a $2,000 watch. The finishing is beautiful and it's super tough. The bracelet is very comfortable and flexible. The bezel action and the lume are superb. Also, Steve provides great customer service. I'm very happy with my first Raven.
This watch was a father’s day gift from my wife. She asked what to get me and I shopped around briefly and chose this watch not thinking it would be anything particularly special.
I was wrong.
To be clear, I’m not an expert - just an amateur enthusiast, so I had my doubts about buying from a smaller company without decades of history; I wanted a tough watch that ran well but also looked good in a variety of settings. I wasn’t sure a smaller “micro-brand” could deliver that.
However, I was not disappointed.
The watch feels sturdy on the wrist without feeling like you’re dragging an anchor around, but not dainty where I’m worried about dinging it.
I can wear it to the beach, on a hike, and then put a dress shirt on and not worry about my watch being appropriate at the office or a restaurant because it works in basically any setting.
The bezel, though I prefer sapphire, is tightly set (which I love) and falls precisely on the face. The same can be said of the crown - it’s built well so that there’s no jiggle or play, which drives me nuts with my pricier watches.
The movement is smooth and reliable enough that I only really check it against a precision clock about once a week (if I remember to) and the watch is only a few seconds off by then.
The lum - I don’t know the technical specs on it - works for the entire night after the lights are out. I’m not a diver so I’ve never tried it underwater, but when I wake up in the night or have had to deal with the kids and instinctively check my wrist, I’ve never had to guess what time it is
because it’s the brightest thing in the room.
I figured the “dlc” coating was a gimmick and that it would scratch up after enough dings. But even after months of regular wear (yard work, small car repairs, some outdoor adventures, etc.) I have yet to see a scratch.
Overall, I would highly recommend this watch. It quickly became my everyday favorite to wear and I sincerely doubt I’ll be replacing it anytime soon.
It’s a great watch.

Extremely nice quality and service. Was shipped and arrived very quickly! My only minor critique is that I wish the bracelet had screws in the links instead of pins, since I've had pins unexpectedly fall out before, but I know that doesn't bother some people and shouldn't affect the rating of the actual watch. I also ordered the leather band which is very nice! Thanks!!
I love the watch. Great price and great service. I definitely recommend getting a Raven-watch.
Received the watch Down Under within a week of ordering.
Watch is great value for the money & customer service impeccable.
Solitude - great watch
Have had a lot if watches at this price point and this one is at the top of the list. Great design and finishing. Case is a comfortable cushion design and perfect size for my 7.5+ inch wrist. Bracelet is original and pin and collar system is secure. Would have been happy with the blue dial and steel bezel combo regardless from what Ive seen in pics but in the metal the watch is fantastic. Blue is understated at times and more vibrant at others. Lume is a heavy application which results in it being bright and long lasting. Will likely be a favorite in my collection! Thanks!!
