Project TrailTrekker emerges as an alliance between Nodus Design Lab and Raven Watches—a Kansas-based watch company renowned for crafting rugged watches tailored for any adventure. Through years of friendship and global travels, we knew it was time to bring the essence of our two brands together. Raven's dedication to resilience, adventure, and practicality combined with our advanced manufacturing methodology resulted in a timepiece fit for the wild unknown.

The landscape between our home states quickly became our palette, and the perilous journey early American explorers embarked on became the inspiration. The rugged heartland presented explorers with the ultimate task in search of a path to the Gold Coast: survive. This perilous journey pushed individuals and equipment to the breaking point. The unwavering perseverance of these explorers is a quality embedded in every facet of our creation. Though these watches were absent from the journey, we have created a timepiece that would have donned the wrists of those who reached the coast – one that will stand up to the journey for those venturing between our home states and beyond.

A gunmetal gray DLC coating (GDLC) covers the entire watch for scratch-resistance and a rugged aesthetic. The bezel and dial are highly-protected with Cerakote®, a highly-specialized ceramic coating used in military, aerospace, and automotive applications. 3D-chamfered gunmetal hands and indices round out the package.

Nope, but I came close when Steve from Raven offered a 15% code on the first batch when they were stuck in customs, but the ($743.75) price still seemed on the higher side compared to other models with similar specs and same movement. I'm also not a fan of that NODUS clasp. I am pretty sure Stan (Pacco) grabbed one.
 
Probably... :wink: I don't remember him posting one tho... I like Raven and Nodus... Have one of each, should have more really...
The code was only for one day. I'm been buying from Steve before NODUS ever existed since around 2009 when he was partners with Ralf as Benarus and afterwards as StevRal.

If I see another code deal pop up on these I'll pm you. Normally I would have posted the code here, but it took you to a private link to enter to purchase. Sort of like what ZELOS does sometimes.
 
When I tried to access the special site early in the morning 0f April 4th, 2024 when Steve first posted the code to access the site it was available several times all day for me to buy. That was days before it even became available on the NODUS site. I think most were sold early using this code leaving little to sell when they became live @ NODUS.
