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.

This is my first watch with a sapphire crystal, and I really appreciate its anti-reflective coating; it makes it easy to read at a glance from a variety of angles. The case is beefy, and the screw-down crown feels both strong and refined. The watch just has a very solid feel to it despite not being overly-heavy. It feels quite comfortable on my medium-sized wrist.
The tritium tubes are pretty darned cool; I feel like a little kid who just got his first flash light. So far the watch has also kept excellent time (hasn't lost or gained a second in a few days), and the second hand does align with the second markers on my model; apparently this hasn't been so for everyone. The band is very thick and well-constructed, but in being something of a watch band aficionado I can tell that it's leather top-layer isn't as well-cured as it could be.
So I give it only 4 stars because of its unnecessary girth and the quality of the band. But really, for a little over 300 bucks you get solid stainless steel with screw-down crown and case back, a sapphire crystal, and tritium tubes. Tritium tubes! It's a good value overall and I'm generally satisfied with my purchase.
The big face is expected but as the other reviewer points out this watch is also "thick"...meaning it sits a little high; which does take some getting used to. Also because of its size it tends to want to lean to one side vs. sitting perfectly flat on the top part of your wrist.
Its quartz run and not automatic so collectors may shy away but its a great watch overall. The Day and Date feature will take a few days to get set properly. On mine the bezzle took a few tries to get it to line up with the screw....I write that off to new, sharp metal but it eventually wears in like all good things.
I particularly like this model over say the 37 or 47 because it is less busy on the dial which makes it look sharper, cleaner to the eye.
Worth having in your collection....its a great everyday watch, expecially at these prices !
In "normal" use, a few months ago, a typical day would have me moving heavily-laden clothes racks at a retail job where I was helping in a remodel. On more than one occasion , I bashed the watch face into the steel, sharp-edged rack (on the edge of the part you physically hang the clothes on). To date. There is no marks on the glass. Pristine. Another phenomenon that I've noticed is that since my wrist is protected by the watch, I guess on some subconscious level, my brain allows the watch collide with objects like desks or bat-wing doors all the time. This is no problem with my right-hand wrist. Well, maybe it's just that I haven't developed a spacial awareness for this protrusion on my wrist that is not a part of my body. Clumsy me. The point I'm making here is that the glass can take some abuse. In fact, the steel watch case bears plenty of little dings and scratches from this abuse. I lovingly call them character marks, but it astounds me that the glass is still unharmed. The scratches and dings mentioned are really quite minor and at some point I will buff them out (careful not to touch the glass because it WILL most certainly do it in) with a Drexel polishing wheel and some Brasso.
The band is leather and is, of course, susceptible to smelling bad after a while.... Don't get the band wet/sweaty. Someone needs to make a dual-compound rubber inside/leather outside band for this thing because the leather looks so good.
The tritium vials are beautiful to gaze upon. Aside from the glass viewing window, they are my favorite part of this watch. Every now and then, even in bright daylight, I can see a ghostly luminescence from them. The only thing I can compare them to is little magic gems. Really cool.
Kind of a larger watch and I have kind if smaller wrists. I like the proportion on my body-type.
My only real complaint is that the inside edges where the watch band attach are not edge-smoothed and are kind of sharp even. I would advise caution around the sensitive parts of others, if you get my drift.
