This version of the Trekker is a limited edition collaboration between Raven Watches and Worn & Wound. For the collaboration, the dial was modified to have a more tactical, modern feel, with gray accents, crosshairs and a stripped down Raven logo. Following suit, the case finishing was altered to feature black DLC coatings on the bezel edge and crown. This adds a more modern and aggressive overall attitude to the already rugged design. Lastly, in addition to the standard bracelet, the Trekker LE comes with a custom American-made Model 2 Premium leather strap by Worn & Wound, made out of a Camel-colored rough out suede. We've also thrown in a Key Chain Spring Bar Tool. Only 30 of these will be produced.
The Trekker effortlessly mixes together field with dive watch styles, and vintage with modern aesthetics into a supremely tough, yet wearable package. The 40mm case speaks to mid-century military dive watches, though features a thoroughly modern 300M water resistance. The crystal too at a glance might seem like the acrylic “top-hats” of days past, but is in fact a box sapphire with AR coating. The dial then goes a different direction, with a tactical, field layout and a decidedly more modern typeface and coloration. It all comes together to create an understated, everyday toolwatch that can withstand the elements.
Inside of the Trekker is the ETA 2824-2 movement, a Swiss-made automatic workhorse movement. This caliber features 25-jewels, 38-hour power reserve, date (if shown) and hacking seconds (the second hand stops when the crown is pulled out). The 2824 is a tried and true movement, thus making it a reliable favorite.
A good timepiece is more than just a tool, or a venue for personal expression, or a piece of mechanical artwork. A good watch is a companion, a daily compatriot on whatever adventure life may throw at you. Since their inception in 2008, Raven Watches has strived to create rugged, dependable companion timepieces that can handle anything that comes their way while developing their own clean, field-inspired design.
