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.

    It is easy to read in light and especially in darkness.
    FlanMan
    Along with wanting a Swiss made watch, I've always loved the Luminox watches because they are navy seal watches and military in general.

    The company did a good job of communicating the status with me.

    This was my first purchase of a Luminox watch and it was worth the wait!!! Great price point at the time(Some recently seen on Amazon have slightly lower price points) The watch shines brightly and continuosly, even when stored in total darkness for an extended period time. Packaging and shipping from Amazon was on point, all around A++, making Amazon my top 3 for online shopping.

    This is a nice watch. The red and black look great and I really like the light weight carbon case and rubber strap.
    The only thing I don't like about the watch is that the dot on the bezel doesn't illuminate. I contacted the seller and he said he compared several watches of model #8815 and that they all had either very faint or no illumination. He offered to accept the watch in return with no restocking fee but I decided to keep it. If you are considering purchasing this watch just be aware that the dot on the bezel may not illuminate which will make it impossible to use the bezel in darkness.,

    Illumination is not as bright as I'd hoped. It's hard to read the time in twilight conditions, but easy in total darkness. My buddy has a LumiNox 3000 series model and it isn't any brighter. My biggest complaint is the second hand does not fall on ANY of the second marks. That's a big deal to me for a watch of this (or any) price. Still, I like it enough to wear it. It looks great and is very light weight. The muted color scheme is a huge plus and the watch does not "wear big" as some do. Excellent wrist band. Price paid: $205.99.

    Update: after just 1 month of wear the tritium marker at the 9 o'clock position dislodged and became stuck under the crystal. Repair covered under warranty, but I'm surprised that a watch billed as military grade is apparently so fragile. I still like it though.
    Time in shop for repair: 4 weeks.

    Update #2: after 7 months of use the watch stopped keeping time and had to be sent in for another warranty repair as the second hand would get stuck between 5 and 8 on the dial.
    Time in shop for repair: 6 weeks.

    This was the second luminox watch I purchased and the previous one lasted about 10 years. I love the watch and it wears great but it is difficult to see the numbers with the contrasting colors. Otherwise it illuminates great and I can see the bezel dot glow. Whether you are an operator or a desk jockey this is a great watch and worth the purchase.

    I bought this watch in January of 2011; and in July I noticed the watch was no longer functioning. I thought it was a battery issue, but when I took it into a local watch store they pointed out that the second hand was hitting the minute hand. If you held the watch face down you could get the second hand to move over the minute hand. You will find that there is no way to contact Luminox. They don't list any phone numbers on their website, and the only email they have is bogus. You will get a delivery failure if you try to email them. It was a $95 repair on a $250 watch. Luminox watches have a lot of problems for a manufacturer that brags about their military contracts. I will not be purchasing another Luminox in the future; too expensive for how often they malfunction.

    This watch is the right size, lightweight and as advertised. Glows brightly in any light and is built strong. I was very fortunate to catch it at $110 below suggested price. Good looking and tough, a fantastic everyday watch. Can't beat the deal. HAPPY.

    this watch purchased as a gift at Christmas,....but Luminox will not warranty anything sold on Amazon,....and 6 months later when the gaskets fail and water clouds the crystal because the watch was worn at higher altitude (Breckenridge) the company will not stand behind the product,....poor reflection on watch quality and Amazon for not identifying warranty issues if purchased through them
