Hi all, I noticed some comment on the 2009 Reno on ebay recently. I bought that watch & have now received it in Australia. Very happy with it in particular the dial which is fifferent to the standard Raven.

Interested in others thoughts about this model.

A little while back I was looking at the 2007 version which was essentially the same but with the steel bezel as opposed to the rubber bezel on the Raven. The deal I had fell through so I never ended up getting hold of one, and now the funds are allocated elsewhere! :wink:

Personally I think the Reno models are some of the nicest "dial logo LE's" out there. Post us some pics! :thumbsup:

Driver,
are you looking for a BIG PILOT :D

Heard its a great watch, with only one problem: it really digs into the wrist, to the point that it really gets annoying... Maybe someone can correct me here :)
Same thing happened to me with my Emergency Mission, and finally decided to sell it :cry:

Let's not go off topic on this thread, but I already have a Big Pilot (a 5004) - and no the crown doesn't dig in if you wear your watches above the wrist joint.... which I do fortunately!

@the OP, let's see some pics of your Reno Raven! :D

Congrats on the new watch! If it's the same one I'm thinking of, I had my eye on it also! I love the Reno dial.

Would love to see some pics!
