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 44-millimeter polyurethane case and matching durable polyurethane band, which includes a buckle clasp with safety mechanism. Striking orange Arabic numerals contrast with the classic black dial, while smaller orange numerals mark the 24-hour clock. In addition, a handy date calendar rests at the three o'clock position, and the unidirectional, textured, polyurethane bezel features brilliant orange 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.

    Really happy and will purchase from this retailer again.

    It is light weight, rugged and macho looking, easy to read at all times and of course it lights up like a torch a night.
    Santiago J. Otero
    Good quality, looks great and craftsmanship appears to be good enough that the watch will last a long time.

    I usually don't review products but I'm compelled to write one about this watch. As a watch collector and a Soldier with two combat tours in Iraq, I know what a good military watch looks like. This watch is an excellent companion to wear in combat and it looks good enough for casual wear. I wore the Traser version on my last tour as well as a Marathon GSAR. Those watches are now confined to my safe as I wear this watch more often than I do my other watches. It is light weight, rugged and macho looking, easy to read at all times and of course it lights up like a torch a night.

    What's to like about this watch? First, it is 200 water resistant. That's more than enough WR to withstand any water usage. Second, the case construction (PC/Carbon) is the best making this piece very lightweight. Third, you have to love the color combination. Orange is the international color for emergency/distress and it is very well executed in this piece without overwhelming the watch or making it look like a "fashion watch."

    I like this watch so much that I ended up buying the white version (3051). At first when I read Luminox's claim that their watches are used by SF guys, Navy Seals and law enforcement officers I thought to myself, what a gimmick. But now that I own two I can tell you that it is indeed a very practical and though watch that will serve you well either you serve in the Armed Forces, are a law enforcement officer or are a spirited and adventurous civilian.

    To close, I have another Army buddy that have one of the original navy Seals watches. He has wore his on two tours in Iraq and has beaten the heck out of it and the watch looks good and has withstood the harsh environment of the desert. Don't hesitate to buy this watch. You will only regret it if you don't get it...

    I bought this watch and it looses 10 minutes a week. I contacted Luminox and they refused to service it because I bought it on Amazon. Beware. They do not stand behind their product and are basically unethical. Purchase at your own risk.

    This watch is very light and comfortable to wear. It keeps great time and shows the time markers in the dark very well which is of great help. The watch around boating and water is perfect. I would buy this watch again.

    I'll start with the good-- it keeps great time, light weight for its size, and excellent visibility, especially at night. I like the style.

    The watch that I purchased was apparently defective and was not watertight. I sent it for warranty service within the first month of purchasing it, and it was repaired and returned. It has not shown any signs of the problem since (no fogging of the crystal). The band is low quality and the pin holding the clasp broke under normal use. I still need to get this fixed.

    I bought this watch for some basic time tracking needs during my swimming exercises. Its performed wonderfully so far after daily use in the water for around 2 months. I'm not using this for compressed air diving, but rather only for lap swimming and shallow water (2-3 meter) snorkeling. Its been used in chemical treated water, salt water, and natural spring water.
    Time accuracy has been surprisingly good. After synchronizing the watch with a network time protocol enabled computer, the watch has only drifted one minute ahead in over two months. In my opinion, not bad for the price point!
    Finally, the watch looks excellent. I've read some detractors saying that they felt it looked cheaper than the value paid for it, or that the ink used on the face or bezel scratched away easily. This just isn't the case for me. I think it looks great with casual dress and I've taken to wearing it as my everyday watch out of the water as well.

    Got this watch about a month ago and absolutely love it!
    I've takin it white water rafting, camping, rock climbing
    Dirtbiking and allot more and it holds up great!!
    I've dropped it, bashed it, scuffed it, and practically smashed it( rafting) several times and no prob, not even a scratch.

    Only negative thing I have to say is that the Bessel is
    Slightly loose. It still works great and is pretty solid but just a
    Little loose.

    The illumination at night is amazing!! Especialy
    When your out in complete darkness!!

    If your considering this watch.. Get it!! You won't be disappointed!
