Product Description

Prized for its durability and unique illumination system, the Luminox Original Navy SEAL Series 1 stainless steel men's watch exudes confidence and power whenever it's worn. Thanks to the vaunted Luminox self-powered illumination system, this watch's hands and dial markers glow 100 times brighter than other luminous watches and will provide continuous illumination for more than 25 years. It's also water resistant to 200 meters (20 ATM, 660 feet), which is suitable for recreational scuba diving.

The large, black-plated stainless steel watch case--measuring 1.7 inches wide and 0.4 inches thick--is topped by a ratcheting, unidirectional rotating bezel with engraved 5-minute Arabic numerals in white and coin-edged detailing for an improved grip. The black dial face is accented by white Arabic numeral markers, large white baton hands (with seconds hand), and a date function at 3 o'clock. It's completed by a comfortable polyurethane (PU) diver's strap in black. Other features include a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, multi-jeweled Swiss quartz watch movement, double gasket crown, and 4-year battery life. It's backed by a 1-year Luminox warranty.

Luminox Self-Powered Illumination System
Each Luminox watch employs tiny self-powered micro gas lights (borosilicate glass capsules), which are firmly embedded in the hands and the hour indicators on the watch face (as well as on the turning ring of diver's watches). Luminox watches need no external light source to "charge" the paint on the dial or hands in order to glow as do conventional luminous watches, nor do they require a push of a button to light the dial as do electro luminescent watches.

About Luminox
Luminox combines the finest tradition and precision of Swiss watchmaking with the durability demanded by US armed forces and the latest innovations in timepiece technology. The company pioneered the development of small, individual luminescent tracer lamps and was contacted by the U.S. Navy SEAL teams to build a dive watch for their use on night missions. After their popularity in the Navy grew, the Air Force asked Luminox to develop a watch specifically for F-117 Nighthawk Stealth pilots.

    Very good watch and very durable.

    This is not some random repair shop, this was the Luminox Customer Service Center.

    The basic Luminox watch is a superb day watch. Although I am on my second one in eight years, this may be a record, as I am not gentle with watchs. The first one's crystal cracked, but the second one is driving on like a champ.

    Pro's-

    The luminous stuff on the hands and face (tritium vials) is bright. I mean really, REALLY bright. None of this hold it under a light" silliness, but wake up at three thirty in the morning and have no trouble reading it.

    The twelve o'clock tritium vial is orange not green, acting as an index point even in complete darkness. See remark about 0330 hrs.

    The bezel can be turned reasonably easily, but won't turn by itself when you are not looking.

    Accuracy is good.

    Shock resistance, overall durability is very good (damage to my first watch was purely my fault and exceeded any reasonable expectation of survival).

    Con's

    The Navy SEAL propaganda can be mildly annoying.

    The bezel is synthetic (plastic), and after two or three years of use starts to go smooth and the numbers start to wear off.

    The luminous stuff on the hands and face (tritium vials) is bright. I mean really, REALLY bright. This con is a special case. If a service member wants to wear this watch in the field, one of those watchbands with the flap to cover the face is a REALLY good idea.

    The synthetic strap isn't so good. I replace the watch band with a nylon/velcro one on the first day.

    The little compass that comes with it is a wasted effort, get a Suunto watchband compass. Same size, superior in every way.

    On the whole, a tremendous value for money, and when I abuse my current one beyond usefulness, I will certainly get another one.

    I bought this exact model in 2002 for boot camp. i thought i should get the best quality watch for something like that and since it is the navy seal watch i figured it would be pretty good. for daily use it looks cool and lights up insanely bright at night. you would have no trouble telling the time in the dark. now the bad part... on the way to boot camp, the light strip on the second hand fell off! it just rattled around inside. then i got to boot camp and i cracked the face without even abusing the freaking thing. it made me sick knowing how much this stupid watch cost me. i ended up having to go to the store so i could buy a [...] timex ironman watch. i used it through boot camp and still wear it today after 7 years of abuse. i had to change the battery for the first time about a month ago. i say dont waste your money. this watch isnt all that luminox claims it to be. its absolute crap.

    Luminox makes money by advertising their watches as being tough, as being used by Navy Seals, and as being a quality product.

    My 3000 series had the crystal break while fishing in alaska. I am not talking about Deadliest Catch abuse, I am talking fishing with a rod and reel for salmon. A very little bump on the side of the boat and a nice break across the face of the watch. To be honest, this did not bother me that much. I assumed that my watch, 3 months old, would be taken care of by Luminox. To my surprise, Luminox denied the claim and charged me $130 to replace the crystal. What was even more absurd than their price was that it took 3 months for them to ship my watch back to me. This is not some random repair shop, this was the Luminox Customer Service Center.

    After getting my watch back, it lasted another 4 months and the bezel broke. Of course, this was not covered under warranty and after $60 and 5 weeks at Luminox Customer Service Center, my watch arrives with a different bezel than the original bezel. After calling the Service Center, I have to send my watch back so they can replace the incorrect bezel with the original model. I ship the watch back, at my expense, and it takes them 3 weeks to call me back and tell me the original bezel is no longer available.

    I finally get my watch back, a few weeks pass, and I take the kids to the pool to hang out and get some sun. After swimming for about an hour, I look at my watch and notice that the crystal has fogged up and I cannot read the watch. My guess would be that Luminox, after opening my watch 3 different times has messed up the waterproofing of the watch. After calling their customer service center, guess what?

    Please do yourself a favor and avoid Luminox watches at all cost.
    I am a firefighter and assumed that a watch good enough for Navy Seals would meet my on the job needs as well. How wrong I was.
    After less than a year I cracked the crystal by setting the watch on a plastic countertop. Apparently they are not made to handle impact of any kind. Navy Seals must be a fragile bunch.
    After considerable hassle, the Luminox service center repaired the watch, but charged me an outragous $120 dollars - and it took them all of 16 weeks.
    Several months later the glow-in-the-dark paint fell off of the second hand and now sits inside the watch housing, getting pushed around by the hands.
    I like the look of this watch, but the quality is terrible. Even worse, it costs more to fix the frequently broken parts than it costs to buy a better watch.
    Give your money to a watchmaker with a quality product who cares about its customers - Luminox is not that company.
