    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.

    This Luminox watch is awesome. I have many Luminox watches because I love the night vision. This one gets many complements. The gunmetal band is awesome and the deep blue color dial looks great. I also have the 6402 Nighthawk and this one feels much more comfortable. Very sturdy and easy to read.

    The Luminox 1824 is a nice looking watch, and I like the gunmetal finish. The face is a bit darker than I expected, so it can be a little hard to read. I might have been better off with the Luminox 1827, which has an ivory face (but not the gun metal grey finish).

    While the watch itself is nice, I found the gun metal bracelet to be too snug. I have larger hands and wrists, but nothing crazy. Of all of the watches I have owned, this is the only one that I've had a problem with.

    I tried to purchase one or two extra links to add to the band, but I could not find anyone selling them. I tried emailing Luminox (twice) to ask where I could buy some extra bracelet links. They acknowledged receipt of both emails, but never sent an answer. I then emailed Saltzman's in Cranston, RI, which is Luminox USA's service center. They never responded to the two emails I sent them.

    Needless to say, I am not thrilled with Luminox's (lack of) customer service. It looks like my only two choices are to buy a different band, or shell out $140 for a complete gun metal band, just to cannibalize it for an extra link. Neither choice is very appealing.

    Update: Saltzman's kept telling me that Luminox kept failing to send them the extra links I was looking for, so I sent more email complaints to Luminox. They never answered any of my emails, except with their robo email saying "Thank you for contacting us. We will get in touch with you shortly." I'm still waiting for that to happen.

    Anyway, in mid November 2013 I received an small package from Saltzman's with two links in it, with a receipt but no note or explanation. The links cost me about $15 each.
