Product Description



AN AMERICAN SUCCESS STORY

Like many other American success stories, LUMI•NOX came from a forward-thinking individual realizing a need in the market and meeting it. Barry Cohen had been in the fashion watch business for quite some time when he came across a Swiss self-powered illumination system and knew that it would make watches more visible and easier to read in low or no light situations. As a result, Cohen and a partner developed watches using this unique illumination system (called Luminox Light Technology) and LUMI•NOX was born back in 1989 (Lumi is Latin for light while Nox is Latin for night), driven by a commitment to offer cutting-edge luminescence and readability in its line of high-performance sports watches.

The Navy SEALs and More
The Luminox Navy SEAL watch is the timepiece that made Luminox famous. The officer in charge of procurement for the Navy SEALs, Nick North, was asked to seek a more dependable watch for night missions and found the solution at a trade show where he discovered Luminox. He worked with Barry Cohen to develop a watch specifically for them and the Navy SEAL watch was born.

"Luminox had exactly the watch we were looking for – we only added a few small things," Nick North, Senior Public Safety Engineer and Operations Specialist, remembered. "We arranged to test some and they worked great. We made a few changes, then the East Coast team started issuing them and the West Coast teams came on board."

After Luminox provided the watches to the SEALs, more elite units contacted them directly, while at the same time Luminox began marketing the watch across the country and the world. Luminox was then approached by US Air Force pilots flying the F-117 Nighthawk Stealth fighter jet. They were wearing the Navy SEAL timepieces, but chafed at the word "Navy" on the dial. Luminox then developed a watch for these pilots and approached Lockheed Martin, the makers of the F-117 Nighthawk for a picture of the plane to use in the catalogs that marketed the watches.

This initial contact turned into an exclusive arrangement to produce Lockheed Martin timepieces, including watches dedicated to the F-117 Nighthawk, F-16 Fighting Falcon, SR-111 Blackbird and the new F-22 Raptor.

The Rest of the Story
Throughout the following 20 years, Luminox has never strayed from its mission which has been confirmed and validated by the many elite military and law enforcement units that have adopted Luminox as standard equipment.

Luminox has expanded its collection to include a variety of styles, created for the active consumer, the sportsman, law enforcement and military groups, divers and more. Currently, Luminox is distributed in 40 countries around the world and supplies elite units all over the world. In addition, the man on the street has shown particular interest in Luminox, anxious to use the watches put to the test every single day – on the world’s most difficult jobs, figuring rightly that if they have been requested by, designed for and used by the Navy SEALs, they have to be able to stand up to every day use.

The Technology
The Luminox Light Technology makes Luminox watches Always Visible – in fact, the technology Luminox uses provides 24/7 luminosity, no matter the conditions, for more than 25 years.

Most other watches use luminescent paint that has to be charged by a light source and fades very quickly, or a "push to light" system, where you push a button for battery-driven illumination.

Luminox, however, uses proprietary technology, in the past reserved for the military, that makes Luminox watches stand out, literally. Each Luminox watch features tiny gas lights (borosilicate glass capsules), which are always lit, on the hands, hour markers and when necessary, bezels. As a result of this unique technology, Luminox watches are always readable at a glance, no matter the conditions.

The U.S. military has long recognized the advantages of micro gas light sources and their use is mandated in procurement specification MIL-W-46374F. Being able to read the watches in any conditions, even in total darkness, is an important requirement of many military and law enforcement agencies.

The U.S. Navy SEALs use the watches, as do U.S. Air Force pilots, FBI and ATF agents, Secret Service officers, Border Patrol units, Coast Guard officers, SWAT teams, as well as general law enforcement officers, helicopter search and rescue pilots, professional divers and other groups.

The Luminox Light Technology system is hand applied in each and every watch. Though more complicated, expensive and time consuming than normal luminescence, it is one of the things that makes Luminox watches special. This unique technology and the additional quality control steps Luminox mandates require extraordinary attention to detail and care in manufacturing.

    I have owned a few high quality Swiss watches, I have two Rolex Submariners and this watch is of comparable quality. It's lighter but still rugged and the illumination in darkness is fantastic. The look and feel is also great, it's a watch while being subtle is still eye catching.

    I had owned a black luminox years ago and it had take quite a beating and worked flawlessly, I had lost it in a move and if this luminox is half as rugged it will last many years to come.

    My only negative (not really a negative, more a downside) for this watch is that it is battery powered rather than body movement powered and that I will have to eventually replace the battery. Other then that the watch is perfect.

    I bought the watch because I love luminox watches. I am a former G shock lover, but you cannot use G shock at night. I love the Tritium inserts and the rugged appearance of these watches. I bought this one based of the pictures, but i just cant stand to look at it anymore. The problem is in the green of the case. It looks like shiny green plastic, not olive drab. The band looks like military issue, but i cant get over the case. Too shiny and too bright green for it to look truly military. I returned it in favor of another Luminox.

    Otherwise the watch is perfect. Light and comfortable. Works perfectly all the time.

    Has great looks and the extra black watch band was a plus. The glow in the dark feature is the trademark feature of the Luminox and it works for my situations working outside in the dark. Keeps great time and have had friends remark about it's good looks and quality workmanship.

    Well let start off with the color. The color is just like the photo when you have the watch indoors. The case look like a very dark olive but when you take the watch outside the casing look more lime color. This is what one of the reviewers complaint was with the watch. I personally think it looks great either way but it is strang the color changes with the direct sunlight.

    As for the rest of the watch it is of great quality and the timing is spot on. It is light weight and very easy to read the time day or night. The Tritium is clear and bright which makes this the easiest watch in the world to read at night.

    I collect watchs and have several other Luminox watches. I really love the look of this military style beauty.

    It's really, really green. Like really green. I thought I would like the OD green case, but honestly, I thought it just looked a little cheap. So, be aware that it looks like green plastic. Which is in the photos, so I can't really complain. Otherwise it's a great watch. It's just really, really green.

    This is my second Luminox Watch. These Watches are well made and very light weight. The composite case, dial and bezel are very stylish. One of the most important items with regard to this item was the timely delivery.

    When viewing photos of this watch it's really cool looking. In person the case is made of plastic and is cheap looking. I was torn and kept the watch but in retrospect I should have sent it back. If the price of the watch was $59.99 it would be acceptable but at $199, not.
