    Venting on an acquisition

    I received my Raven trekker from a member here and to be honest ... I'm disappointed. One, the bracelet end links are to small to fit the springs bars. Two, the rubber strap width was to small and any tension will allow the spring bars to pop up because the rubber isn't flush against the lugs.

    I'm just kind of venting here but this is actually very disappointing that one a seller would not disclose these items and two, two of the three straps are defective.

    Happy Friday everyone

    did you think about contacting Raven just to see if they have any thoughts on the issue? Maybe they can help.

    PS. Leave seller feedback in the deal feedback forum too (good or bad) both types make this place better.

    Surprising from Raven. Have you talked to the seller about it not being as advertised? Another option is to file a claim with Paypal since it's not what you were promised. I wouldn't just let it go though.

    well, before raven, PayPal and whatnot, have you contacted the seller? just in case it was an honest mistake, I always give the seller a chance to make good before even getting too upset

    It sounds like the seller may have given you springbars that didn't originally come with the watch. That would explain why they don't fit into the end links. It could also explain why the rubber strap isn't wide enough. If the springbars are too big for the rubber strap, that causes the rubber to expand too much.

    I'm pretty sure Steve shipped that watch on the bracelet, so I'm sure it originally had springbars that were the correct width.

    Yes. I sent an email last night asking if they were the right spring bars. No response which is really weird. Steve at raven said they had issues with first run of the bracelet and to send it back to them.

    It's the jubilee. And I know Steve will make it right. It's just frustrating to receive something and basically can't wear it.

    Just for reference:

    I have both an original Trekker (jubilee bracelet) - Jan 2017
    and one of the 50 pre-order "Trekker Yellow Oyster" models - arrived June 2017

    Both came on their respective bracelets, and any additional straps were included in the box...

    Both came with a little ziplock bag of an extra 2 springbars, in the pocket with all the documentation cards.
    I am not sure if they are exactly the same as those which were installed in the bracelet, but would assume so.
    I mounted my rubber strap for a while using the bracelet's spring bars and it was no problem.

    I just checked both my rubber straps, and they are identical width.
    Both fit the lugs of the watch perfectly, there would be zero gap left-to-right.
    It's a nice rubber strap, I just didn't end up wearing it because it seemed to irritate my skin.

    The Oyster bracelet is 7000x better than the Jubilee in my opinion...
    You need bigger wrists to wear the Jub. due to how it sticks out beyond the lugs.

    PS.
    Just because I happen to know these specs from Steve
    if you want to adjust the bracelet

    "Bergeon pink colored drivers, they are 1.6mm wide.
    You need to use 2 at the same time."
