Great band

Great, quality band that suits the Endeavour well. I like it better than the bracelet which itself is great.

Amazing Strap!

This unassuming strap is so very nice in person. This soft, flexible strap has quickly become my favorite strap for the Solitude. I cannot more highly recommend everyone to pick one up. They are work double the price!

Love it

My second Raven. Craftsmanship is better than the last. My favorite of about 8 automatic watches. Considering getting a leather band as well, but really like the fit and feel of the rubber. Yes, the watch is small compared to the trend of huge, but it’s so comfortable.

20mm Caoutchouc rubber alligator

Looks like alligator leather but reall rubber. Very nice and goes well with a sports/dress watch.

Caoutchouc straps

Smooth and pliant. No dust or lint unlike silicone straps. Love it

Rubber Strap for Bronze Trekker

I am more than happy with the rubber strap designed especially for the Bronze Trekker. I originally ordered the watch on the brown leather, but it is nice to have a specialized strap for things like kayaking or other places leather may not be ideal!

Bronze Trekker 39

This is my third Trekker 39. I'm a huge fan of bronze watches and liked my two steel Trekkers so much that I decided to add this one, too. The entire Trekker 39 line is fantastic. The case is very comfortable, the dials are super legible, and the lume is great. All three of mine are keeping good time. With the bronze Trekker you get the added bonus of watching the case change appearance over time. The dial looks different depending on the light - from a beautiful green outside or in bright light to black in low light. The red seconds hand pops in just about any light. I really have no complaints about any of my Trekkers. The 39 is just a great all around watch.

Bronze Trekker

Excellent timepiece!!!

Awesome strap!

Very soft and supple but still tough and secure. Highly recommend!

BIWI 20mm Caoutchouc Rubber Strap

I love it! Soft and study. BIWI makes great rubber watch straps. I wish you guys could also stock the BIWI Osiris model in 20mm and 22mm.

Perfect fit

Thanks Steve for sourcing this Gen 1 bracelet for the Deep Tech. The traditional divers clasp makes all the difference in the world

Second Trekker 39

My first Trekker 39 was a blue dial with date and ceramic bezel (B7) and I liked it so much I decided to get this no date version with the steel bezel. I love the 3/6/9/12 markers and the simplicity of no date. Obviously, the case is the same so everything concerning comfort and fit applies here, too. The Trekker 39 line is fantastic no matter which version you choose - super legible, very comfortable, and definitely versatile. Between the two I own, I honestly haven't found anything I don't like. Well done, Steve!

Something special

Wow! You need to hold this watch in hand to really appreciate the beauty and quality. Everything about it is incredible and it has a “Raven look” to it....which makes it stand out from the pack. I own many watches, and I find it hard to choose another one, within same price range, that is as well made and as beautiful as this watch. My third Raven and completely impressed. Also, Steve’s customer service is the best I have ever experienced. He helped me thru a situation that others probably would not have and for that, I’m forever a Raven fan and supporter. If you can find one of these watches, buy it!

The Best Microbrand Watch Yet

I bought the blue bezel + blue dial date version. Visually, it’s perfect. I love the overall emphasis on brushed rather than polished surfaces; and the over-engineered design and production quality. As Rolex is to Raven, so is Rolls Royce to Bristol Motor Cars.

The ‘Jubilee’ style bracelet is wonderful; lighter than an ‘Oyster’ style and with flatter links than a Rolex. And completely brushed. What’s not to love?

The 39mm case size, similar size to a Black Bay 58, is perfect. I had a 40mm Trekker in the past. This new design is superior in every way: case architecture, weight, wrist-fit and visual perfection. The BB 58 obviously has a superior movement, but otherwise it’s a photo finish. Considering the price difference, I’ll leave it to you decide which is better value.

I’ve owned five 41mm Black Bays and about ten Rolex Subs and Sub-Dates. For a micro-brand, this is close as you can get to similar design + engineering (C Ward, Halios, MKII and Monta excepted).

This watch is a home run for Steve. He should keep it on as a standard product offering. If you loved the experience and thrill of owning and wearing Rolex sports watches in the 1980s and 90s, but think they are overpriced today (and no longer appropriate for daily wear), then buy a Tudor Black Bay 58 or a Raven Trekker. In fact, you should buy both!

Now all Steve needs is for someone famous to start wearing one!

This is a keeper!

Watch runs and looks amazing on wrist. It’s shines during the day and glows brilliantly at night. As a matter of fact it outshines all my other superluminova watches! The 39mm case size makes it a perfect everyday companion wether out in the field or dressing up for night out. If your able to I would guess this watch ASAP as they tend to go fast ... you won’t regret it!

What a suprise

I opened the box and was immediately impressed with the watch. Super high quality finish. I think the Trekker 39 is absolutely perfect for me. The black dial actually looks deep blue due to the AR coating. It is such a treat to see this watch in person. The watch way exceeds my expectations for a $750 watch. I currently have 12 Rolex watches of which two are relatively new and 10 are vintage, mostly from the 50s. I have a moon watch, a Fortis Cosmonaut, two 50s Omega Sea Masters, a couple Benrus, and many other watches. This Trekker has the most pleasing aesthetic out of all of my watches. Steve did an outstanding job. I am very impressed. I can't wait to see what he does in the future.

Great watch

All of the elements exist to make this a great watch, which it is. Just don’t lose the spring bar for the bracelet!

Great All Around Watch

The Trekker 39 is very comfortable and doesn't feel bulky. Legibility is excellent thanks to the polished hands and markers and great lume. The bezel is easy to grasp and action is crisp. The crown is also easy to manipulate and even though it sticks out more than other watches it does not rub, poke, or otherwise irritate my wrist in any way. The bracelet is easy to size with the screw pins and it is very comfortable. It hugs the wrist well. The Trekker 39 is just a great all around watch. For me, the size, comfort, and legibility are all there in a well finished piece.

Amazing offering

I have way too many watches to count, and most of them from smaller manufacturers. This is easily near the top of that list. From the quality, comfort, and obvious love that went into making this watch, it's hard to wear something else. Great job!

Another home run from Raven!

I think I'm on my 6th and the just get better. Fit and finish punches well above their weight, and the company actually cares about its customers.
