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!
The watch appeared at first glance to be fine, the only major change from my previous navy seal watch was the strap which was a thinner more pliable rubber one. Later in the year when it was time to turn the clocks back for the end of daylight savings time, I attempted to pull out the watch stem to change the time. IT WOULD NOT BUDGE! I called the Watch Colony to tell them the problem. The person answering the phone stated in broken English that "The watch supposed to be that way, stem will not pull out easily because of waterproof".
This sounded ridiculous to me, so I followed up with two subsequent emails and got the same answer, furthermore, they would not take the watch back since more than 30 days had elapsed since the date of purchase.
I sat next to a gentleman on a plane who had just received the same watch from a different retailer for his birthday. I explained my problem and he said the dealer was lying to me, and effortlessly pulled out his watch stem with one fingernail!
I then called the manufacturer of the navy seal watch, Luminox and explained the situation. They also told me the Watch Colony was lying about the watch, the stem should pull out effortlessly. Furthermore, they stated that the Watch Colony was not an authorized dealer for navy seal watches, and because of that and the missing warranty card, the usual two year warranty would not be honored.
For all I know the Watch Colony may be selling black market items that are inferior to the original design... they could not find any warranty card for my watch or any other navy seal watch to send me when asked. If I wanted Luminox to repair the inferior watch stem the cost to me would be well over $100.00!
I have attempted five times to get my money back from this dealer, but neither the Watch Colony nor Amazon will refund my money. I have been a good customer of Amazon for over ten years and cannot believe they would allow a fly by night company such as the Watch Colony to do business under the good name of Amazon. I am writing this not only to express my outrage at being a victim of an unscrupulous dealer, but to warn future buyers off.
This has been the worst buying experience I have had in over ten years!
