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.
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!
Great value. You really get a lot for the money. Drilled lug holes are not to be expected in a watch with this price tag. Super comfortable and extremely strap friendly make it an easy to dress up or down kind of watch. The size is perfect. The NH35 movement functions as it should and is relatively accurate.
My complaints are not deal breakers but things I would improve on. The crown guard gets in the way when unscrewing the crown. The luminescence is not something that lasts throughout the night due to the thinness of the hour and minutes hand and I thought it would be.
Some people would perhaps call it an hommage to one or more Rolex watches and perhaps it is.
This watch is so well crafted that it has enough of its own character, that it has developed an identity of its own. It has risen far above the level of being an hommage.
It's heavy due to its demands (i.e. water resistance), but sits well on the wrist with a very comfortable clasp, WITH diver's extension which is much shorter compared to some other brands but is still very firm.
This is my 5th Deep Tech and love them. Classic design and high quality execution. Also great service.
