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.

The Benefits

    I own a number of watches --- it's a sort of "illness," and if you have it you'll understand --- and my collection ranges to pieces that cost well over ten times as much as this did. (I pre-purchased at below this price.)

    If you like Luminox you will love this one. Mostly. Probably.

    ***********************

    [EDIT/UPDATE]
    If you like "luminoxes" (and I do) then you like "luminoxes." But that does not mean that you have to like Luminox --- and I don't. Good luck trying to get an answer to an email, technical clarification, or any other information --- four shots, zero back.

    How does it run? Four weeks, second hand still a bingo match to the atomic time clock I have. Again, the only other watch I have that will hold under 30 seconds per year (yes, year) is a Breitling Aerospace.

    If you're wondering whether or not you can operate the chronograph push-pieces (buttons) while immersed --- so am I. No answer, either in the manual, or from Lummox. (I have one watch that has buttons rated to full 1000m (no typo) depth; but that's extreme (there's only one made like that) and I'll never come close to that.)

    ************************************************

    It is a substantial, heavy build with a strong, solid-link stainless steel bracelet. The bezel is polycarbonate, with very bright minute numerals and a crisp, solid ratchet. This watch wears like a wall clock --- it is unambiguous and "loud" in its readability. That's what it's designed for. It's not "elegant." One might say it's the antithesis of Movado. It's like wearing something from a submarine bulkhead on your wrist --- which I like.

    My experience with Luminox has been that they are more accurate than most quartz watches.

    Great watch! I love watches and this one is both stylish and functional. You can read by the glow of the watch face at night. The weight is just right and I use the chrono everyday . It resets to zero perfectly and keeps perfect time. Luminox mid price watches are well made and a value for the buck!

    This is my second Luminox and this one is also Perfect in every way. Form, Function, Price, Looks, Weight, I could go on forever. Love being able to tell the time at night even without "charging" the numbers and hands on an ordinary watch.

    This watch is a nice solid watch. Not too heavy but certainly solid. It doesnt feel cheap. The plastic bezel was a concern for me, but it is very nice quality as well. I own several boutique dive watches (Deep Blue, Helson, Baliha'i, etc) I like this Luminox just as much. All the chronograph hands are dead on accurate. One thing I hate about chrono watches is when the hands dont line up correctly. This watch has very good quality and the hands line up perfectly. The Chrono hands do NOT glow as advertised on the Luminox site though. But the rest of the markers glow all through the night. They are just as bright at 4am as they were when I went to bed at 10pm. Screw down crown is nice and smooth. Pushers for chrono are very smooth. Highly recommend it.

    Great watch, solid feel. Heaviest watch that I own and love the weight. Illumination is great at night, pictures dont do it just. Nearly a night light on your wrist.

    I purchased my first two Luminox watches back in 1997 and they are both still in use - I use them every week. Recently, I decided to add a couple of newer models so I purchased the 3081 B.O. last Christmas and now this model. All four watches are very well made, reliable, stylish, and accurate. Believe it or not, but on the first two watches from 1997 - I only just recently had to replace the batteries. 16 years later!! This is amazing performance! Otherwise, I have never had to send these in for repair.

    On to the 3182. Just like all my other Luminox watches the quality is excellent for the price and all other things being equal these are Swiss made watches. I am not aware of any other watch that offers this much value. The style is that of a large cased watch with a hefty bracelet. While it feels heavy in the hand, on the wrist it is an easy watch to wear. The face is very easy to read with a large dial and prominent bright white hands on a black background. The Chronograph works perfectly and the watch keep very accurate time. The only quibble I have with this fine watch is that the smaller dials are a little too small and hard to read. Honestly, this is okay, since I can't see how they could have made the dials larger without hurting the visual balance of the face. There really is not much more to say about this watch, it just rocks. Based on my long relationship with Luminox I expect this beauty to give me many, many years of solid performance and pride in ownership. If you like military style, adventurer watches that still look great out on the town or in the office I can't think of a better choice than this model - or any of the other Luminox offerings. Highly recommended.
