about 1 year ago
Available on

Hey Everyone,
Up for sale is my Raven Defender in brass.
The watch has been a good friend but as my collection grows I need to trim the herd - watches are meant to be worn!
A little information on the Raven Defender:Design and General Info: The Raven Defender is a dive watch with inspiration from Pilot's watches.
The Defender features an internal rotating bezel for tracking elapsed time, adjusted by the crown at 2:00.
The time is set by the screw-down crown at 4:00.
All major markings on the watch (hands, dial numerals, minute hashes, triangle on bezel) utilize Super Luminova C3 for a great look in the dark. Everything on the watch has been rounded off and smooth so there are no sharp angles anywhere on the case, crowns or lugs.
The watch is no longer available to purchase at retail.Material: Brass, which will patina beautifully and uniquely over time.
Humidity, oxygen, sweat, salt, and sun all play a part in the aging.
The back of the watch is made out of blasted stainless steel.
Sapphire crystal on the front and rear exhibition case back.Size: 42mm case with 20mm lug widthMovement: Inside the watch you will find the robust and reliable Miyota 9015 mechanical automatic movement. This movement is made by Citizen Japan and has a high beat rate of 28,800 BPH, that translates to 8 ticks per second. The movement is operated by the lower crown at 4:00, it can be hand wound and also features a hacking function for the second hand. The power reserve is 30-40 hours and the rotor is signed with the Raven shield. Water Resistance: 300 meters - it's a dive watch after all! Strap: The watch is mounted on a meaty leather strap with contrast stitching.
The watch also comes with a leather NATO strap that also originally came with the watch
Box/Papers/Misc: Yes, the watch comes with the original presentation box, warranty card, an extra pair of spring bars and....a Raven stickerCondition: The watch is in excellent condition and keeping good time
Price: $595, inclusive of shipping and PayPal fees.
I will only ship to a verified PayPal address in CONUS, to protect both sides of the transaction.
My default shipping method will be flat rate USPS, but if you'd like to upgrade, let me know and I can send out via Fedex or UPS as long as you cover the price of shipping in that case.
I also welcome the opportunity to meet in person in the NYC area for a face-to-face transaction.
This is the first timepiece that I'm selling on WUS though I have positive feedback from purchases on WUS.
I promise I'm not a creep and will be happy to chat over the phone or meet in person in the NYC area.
Feel free to PM me with questions.
