Raven watches are known for making tough dive watches that hint at classic watches, while still being their own thing. Vintage cues, a familiar shape or two, take their otherwise no-fuss tool watch designs into a surprisingly stylish territory. Paired with Swiss automatic movements, high water resistance, sapphire crystals, Ceramic or DLC bezels, they check the boxes for both form and function.
Today, we're excited to add the Raven Endeavour to our collection of watches. Building off of the success of the 40mm Trekker, Raven created the Endeavour for dive watch enthusiasts who want a big, bold diver, but still want subtle vintage aesthetics. At 44mm, the Endeavour is not for the faint of heart, though it is perhaps the most wearable of large watches we've come across.
Thanks to a clever case design that utilizes a soft, almost bowl-shaped mid-case, relatively short lugs for a manageable 49mm lug-to-lug and a four o'clock crown, the Endeavour doesn't wear like the beast it appears to be. The proportion of the wide bezel to the dial also pulls the case in visually. On the wrist, you'll find it feels more like a 42mm dive watch, but has a bit of extra presence.
The design has an appealing familiarity to it, while still coming across as its own thing. The wide ceramic inlay bezel shouts mid-century while the curved corners, applied indexes on the dial have a timeless quality. They hint at the past, yet feel like modern interpretations. Of course, the super bright lume and 500m water resistance will also remind you of the Endeavour's thoroughly modern build.
Inside of the Raven Endeavour is the ever-trustworthy ETA 2824-2, a tool of a movement for a tool watch. The Raven Endeavour is available now in black with or without date for $750, making it a great value as well.
