    Short version: This is a very attractive, very functional, truly waterproof watch (for anything other than scuba diving), and the twenty-five year night-time illumination is bright enough that you can use the watch as a bedside clock. I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.

    Longer version: My primary watch is a gold Rolex Day-Date Presidential. Originally my father's, it has great sentimental value to me, and I did not wish to risk losing it or having it stolen while on a recent international vacation. I wanted an alternative to take with me, and my criteria were specific. This watch met them perfectly.

    * Waterproof for swimming. This watch is water resistant to 200m. Water resistance ratings are very misleading. If a watch isn't water resistant to at least 50m, it isn't waterproof for swimming. If you want to snorkel, it better be water resistant to 100m. [...]

    * Black anodized stainless steel case and bracelet. I've never been a fan of rubber watchbands, and leather isn't suitable for swimming. The plating on gold-tone watches usually wears poorly, and I'd rather wear something more genuine. This watch isn't pretending to be something it isn't, and the black band has a great, rugged look for casual wear. Many pictures of this watch make the band look lighter than it is. It's darker than pictured on the Luminox website. It's more of a charcoal grey verging on black.

    * Displays day of week and day of month.

    * Synthetic sapphire crystal. This is the most expensive type of crystal you'll find on a watch, and it's rare to find it in a watch this affordable. It has beautiful clarity and is almost impossible to scratch in everyday use. Sapphire is a corundum. It rates a 9 on the Mohs hardness scale.

    I just received my Luminox 1824 and it is a beauty. Fit and finish are great and it is the best looking of the three Luminox watches that I have. Quick service through Amazon/CountShop. I would definitely buy there again.

    after 3 years, movement became erratic, often stalling for hours at a time, and as I don't live in Rhode Island, the only service center in the US, I took to local jeweler who replaced the battery. The issue persists, and after a long time on hold with Luminox, was found that the watch could be returned for $120 service with a one year warranty. The band is not wearing well, with the black coming off and looking worn, and the fitting pins are extruding and snagging on clothes. Was $500 at purchase, and just not worth it. Luminox's customer service is subpar, the durability is far below the "military" grade that it flaunts for all its watches. Would not purchase again, and will not purchase Luminox watches going forward
