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.
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.

Anyway I just received my new Traser P 6506 Commander Force P6506.430.32.02 today. The design feel and look is almost identical to the Lumnox 3001 (I prefer small face watches that you cannot even tell you are wearing them). I'm hoping for the best, but after $300 worth of Luminox in 3 years and 8 months it's obvious there is a quality issue. I feel sorry for the Navy Seal that might be wearing one right now!
I've had this watch for just two weeks, so this review is a work in progress(I always update my reviews as necessary). So far, the watch looks great & it's been a real accurate watch(closely monitored, down to a second). I'm always reckless with items like these, but it's yet to pick up a scratch. It looks durable enough with the exception of the crystal. I'm used to my G-Shock crystal being recessed to save it from impact, but it actually sticks out slightly on this watch. It looks great, but in my opinion, questionable design for watch that's marketed on toughness.
Only "con": Even before I ordered this watch, I wasn't feeling its cheap looking rubber strap. When I received it, I thought its really soft texture was kind of nice - until I found out that friction often made it hard to insert the strap into the loop. I have replaced it with the 22mm Zulu Military strap(NATO style) & I am now in love with this watch.
Edit(2 Months): I started monitoring time accuracy using the time.gov website, and in close to two months, it has gained roughly 5 seconds. I can live with that. Also, I have encountered zero problem with this watch, nor the NATO strap I also purchased on Amazon.
Edit(6 Months): It has now gained roughly 26 seconds going by time.gov website. I feel horrible for not ever wearing other watches I own. With the blacked out NATO strap, I just love this watch & I never go outside without it on my wrist. ;)
Edit(One Year): I only wear this watch casually(also own Mudman G-Shock for the abuse), but it still seems to keep very accurate time &I still don't wear any other watches. This one turned out to be one of my all-time favorites. :)
Edit(Third Year): Same, same. I wear this watch almost daily, but for outdoors, I still wear my Casio Mudman. This Luminox is still my favorite though, and it is still ticking perfectly & accurately. I haven't had to change the battery in it yet!
It does show some wear, the crystal has a medium scratch and the white is gone from the bezel numbers (looks good that way too though)
The original Luminox strap cracked at 2 years and was replaced by the very excellent PU Link bracelet:
( search Polyurethane Link Bracelet Band 22mm for Luminox 3000 and 3900 )
Its worn in the shower daily, swimming regularly, and has been to the bottom of the lake several times to retrieve a dropped tool from ~20ft or so... I'm no diver, but its taking all I will ever throw at it.
I'll buy another when it takes a hard hit or the tritium fades.
It still glows nicely btw... not blinding, but very, very easy to read at a distance in pitch black.
Warning - If you grow to like this watch it WILL ruin you for your other high-dollar all-steel dive, dress and general field watches.
It spoiled my wrist with total comfort and has made wearing my other really nice metal watches a bit miserable, especially in the heat.
Nowadays, I hit the door, this plastic hits my wrist. Not sure how I feel about that? :/
don't yet understand how this happens.
