It’s been a while since we’ve seen a 9015 based watch on Kickstarter. But just when it seemed the VK-64 mecha-quartz had taken over crowdfunding along comes this pilot/diver hybrid by Raven Watches. Raven is brought to you by the same guys behind popular microbrand Benarus Watches.
The Defender combines a pilot style dial with some serious diver case specs with water resistance to 300m and those outrageous crowns are simply fantastic. Internal bezel, no date, Superluminova lume, this watch checks all the boxes. The 42mm case isn’t a monster either. Earlybirds are still available at time of writing and are going for $349 for a steel case and $399 for a black DLC case.
Available now on Kickstarter.
