Raven Watches LLC. is owned and operated by Steve Laughlin and Jeff Duschane at the Raven headquarters in Overland Park, Kansas. Our Kansas facility is where our watches are designed by Steve and serviced by Jeff.
Steve has been designing and producing watches since 2008 while Jeff has been servicing and repairing watches for over 25 years. The passion for wearing and collecting watches started much earlier than that... Both Steve and Jeff began collecting watches at the early age of around 10. Today they live active lives, they both wear watches 24/7 that need to be extremely durable in any environment or situation.
Steve is a family man, who enjoys camping (Eagle Scout), backpacking (CDT 1998), Rock Climbing (24HHH 2014 competitor), and SCUBA (NAUI 1991, PADI Advanced 1995, SSI Nitrox 2013). His work at Raven includes future watch designs, marketing, photography, website development and maintenance, sales, shipping, and email communications.
Jeff's history involves working with the military overseas in Central America and Asia, relying on dive watches as tools in the field to be precise and not let him down. Jeff relocated to Kansas from California to join Raven in 2015. He is the Raven service tech, and also works on future watch development, QC, email communication with customers and other roles such as sales and shipping.
These past and current life experiences form the thinking and the passion that goes into designing Raven watches today. This passion has produced watches that attract like-minded customers. Raven watches are worn by many professionals that find themselves in board rooms to battlefields.
