Like some steely-eyed Jon Hamm or beguiling Grace Jones circa a View To A Kill, Raven’s new Trekker 40 is the kind of watch you want to wear to a duel or a race car race with an evil British shipping magnate. The watches, limited to 150 pieces, come with Miyota 9015 movement and brushed, blasted, or DLC cases and cost about $750.
But that’s not all! The watchers are actually up for pre-order at $650 on
Raven’s own site.
Raven started off as a Kickstarter watch with its Defender model. This new model, created by Steve Laughlin, is a massive departure from the Defender look and feel and I think it’s an impressive move for the company. The lume and austere face look great and I especially like the DLC model although it is missing a date window.
This, friends, is one of the quintessential intro watches. It has great looks, an automatic movement, and good design. If every Kickstarter watch was like this I’d be in heaven.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
