By TLex A couple of months back I talked about RAVEN Watches' brand revitalization through their new partnership with STEVRAL LLC, the parent company of BENARUS Watches. Since then, RAVEN Watches have already begun production of 100 pieces of their 'Vintage Series' watches. The new Vintage Series watches will have 42mm brushed stainless steel cases. As is traditional for this style of vintage military diver, its crown will be unguarded. It will be fitted with an authentic looking high-domed acrylic crystal. To insure its 200 meters of water-resistance its screwdown crown will feature triple gaskets.
The bezel numbers and markers will be engraved into the alloy insert and then filled with a C3 lume, the alloy insert will have a glossy black finish. C3 SuperLuminova will also be used on the dial and its polished gold Mercedes-style hands. To match the handset the text and minute marks on the dial will also be in gold with the addition of red lettering for its water-resistance marking. Finally a 22mm vintage style oyster bracelet is being produced for the Vintage Series; the bracelet will not taper at the buckle. Production will take around 4-5 months from now. Stay tuned for more . . .
