The Raven Defender is characterized by an expansive dial and internal bezel that is controlled via a second crown. Both crowns are oversized and offer a distinctive look and (one would assume) an easy way of controlling the time-setting and the internal bi-directional bezel. With strong legibility bolstered by C3 Superluminova luminous paint, the Raven Defender looks like a piece of military gear crossed with a vintage super compressor.

Despite its entry level cost, the Raven Defender uses a Miyota 9015 Automatic movement. Made in Japan by a subsidiary of Citizen Watches, the 9015 offers hacking and hand winding and is capable of excellent timekeeping with minimal service. The 9015 is commonly found in entry-level automatics and has become a key movement in the sub-$1500 category. Its inclusion in the Raven Defender is certainly a noteworthy value addition.

With roughly the same footprint as a Seiko SKX007 (not including the crowns) and a lug-to-lug of 49mm, the Raven Defender is slightly shorter and thinner than the Benarus Moray 42, a watch I find quite comfortable on my seven-inch wrist.

It’s exciting to see Raven branch out in to new watches while still offering the same accessible pricing and sport-ready specs that enthusiasts have appreciated from their past models. While I initially felt the large crowns looked awkward, their appeal has grown on me and, in the wrist shots provided for the project, the Raven Defender looks really good, with a distinctive wrist presence.
