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!
