Product Description

Perfect for low-light or no-light situations, the Luminox Men's Navy SEAL Colormark watch glows 100 times brighter than other luminous watches, which allows for easier visibility. This timepiece This versatile timepiece is constructed with a 43.9-millimeter polyurethane case and matching durable polyurethane band, which includes a buckle clasp. Eye-catching white Arabic numerals contrast with the classic black dial, while smaller white numerals mark the 24-hour clock. In addition, a handy date calendar rests at the three o'clock position, and the unidirectional textured bezel features popping-white minute indexes for easy readability. Powered by analog-quartz movement and protected by a durable mineral dial window, this watch is preferred by US Navy SEALs and US Air Force Pilots, and is water resistant to a depth of 660 feet.



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.

    So, I decided not to buy another Luminox watch never again.

    The tritium glows very nicely at night and as already mentioned the high contrast numbers and hands makes it easy to see.

    Owned this watch for a few months and it literally fell apart.

    Got my 3051 Luminox watch for a birthday gift, and I have sent it back to Jomashop for the second time. Watch arrived with one of the vaunted borosilicate glass capsules not working. Watch also stopped every day at 10:30. (Maybe this is a special time of the day for the Seals.) Anyway, when I called Jomashop and told him at in addition to the watch stopping twice a day that one of the capsules was not working. The service rep said, "Ohh, yeah probably the one at the 11 o'clock position" "No, I said on my watch the one at the 2 o"clock position is not glowing." Makes me thing that whoever at Luminox who was putting the bad capsules in at the 11 o'clock position was demoted to the 2 o'clock position. Sent the watch back to Jomashop - you pay for the shipping and insurance - and a month later got the watch back. Noticed right away that they did not change out the inoperative capsule -I guess they had no way to determine if it was glowing or not! (Hint to JOMASHOP - have the watch taken into a dark room - look at the watch.) After a lot of back and forth, they finally sent me a UPS shipping label. Maybe I will have a fully functioning watch by my next birthday. I order a lot of items from Amazon, and this is the first time I have been burned by an inferior product and vendor. UPDATE! Just received watch back - they fixed the capsule and the watch now stops at 11:30 instead of 10:30 - I guess we are making progress - Watch going back to JOMASHOP again. FURTHER UPDATE! I got it back and did not wear it for a few months as I purchased a watch that actually worked - a Citizen Eco-drive Skyhawk AT which is a very nice watch. 6/2/2012 - pulled out the Luminox to wear it again, and saw that it has now stopped at 11:50 - Progress!! It almost got to noon before it stopped. It is back on its way to Jomashop for repair. Well at least I am doing my part to keep the USPS busy.

    I own several TAGs, Breitlings, Omega, Citizen, Torgoen, and Tissot. This is my first Luminox, and I bought it mainly for the novelty of the Tritium illumination vials - everyone should have at least one H3 watch in their collection.

    All markings are *very* high contrast white. The tritium 5-minute marker vials are BLUE, the second hand marker vial is BLUE, with GREEN vials on the hour/minute hands, a GREEN vial on the 12 hour marker and a small GREEN bezel marker. The tritium illumination isn't as bright as perhaps some marketing material and pictures would make it out to be - however it is very good and certainly does the job in low light or darkness.

    The watch is large which is my preference, about the same size as a TAG Formula One Grande. The bezel turns in one direction, a safety feature for divers so they cannot accidentally bump the bezel and 'add time' to their tank supply after aligning the zero to the minute hand just before diving - a one way bezel can only subtract time if you bump it. The bezel has a nice, solid ratchet feel when rotating. The numbers on the bezel are in fact countersunk/engraved, not just painted on the top surface of the bezel - so it would seem to be difficult to 'wipe or rub off' the paint as some have suggested.

    The watch case, case back, and bezel are made from a polycarbonate & carbon composite material. This makes the watch light, but some may think it feels cheap. However these materials are very strong, and give the watch a low magnetic signature - important if you are working near explosives/mines (EOD) or navigating with a handheld compass.

    After one year, the stem started leaking and let moisture in and then the hands fell off. It was going to cost over $100 for Luminox to repair (would not cover under warranty).

    This watch broke after 9 months and neither Luminox or Amazon will fix it. The movement somehow stopped working and the watch hangs around 11am everyday. Luminox won't touch it because Amazon.com isn't an "authorized reseller" while Amazon hasn't responded to my two emails regarding the subject send to their watch warranty/repair department.

    Aside from the broken quartz movement, I don't have any complaints. The 1/5 refers to the failure to comply with warranty, not the theoretical quality of the fully functional product.

    I am a police officer and I bought this watch for work and weekends. I ve had just a little over 2 years and it stopped keeping correct time. If the minute hand is on the 12 the hour hand is showing half past the hour. I thought it might be the battery and my wife took it in for one they told her it need to be sent back but the warr. had expired and it would cost more to fix than a new one. Bad deal all around, don't buy this watch
