I have always used G-Shock watches. My Stepson really wanted one of these Luminox Watches, and said he would pay for mine if I bought two with my Amazon account. That is how I came to the one I have.
Ok,....it's nice. I like the fact that is is light weight like a G Shock. The band is soft, and flexible, and seems to be tough enough. I like that.
It's bright, and easy to see in the dark. Actually easier than a G Shock because there are no buttons that need to be pushed to light the dial. The Crown seems to be strong. At least as strong as a G Shock..so...
What do I not like?
Well, really not much. I am USED to the bulk of a G Shock, and it's overall size, which is usually pretty big. This watch, while not tiny, is not bulky either. That's really NOT a bad thing. Personal taste maybe?
I am also used to the cluttered dial of a G Shock. They can be so cluttered you can't read the time ( not really, but almost true). Truth is I don't use half the stuff that comes in a G Shock. I could, but I rarely do. That's just me.
The Luminox has none of that nonsense. Very clean and simple. It does have the, what do you call it?, time keeping ring on the outside. It works fine, and I have use it a couple of times too.
So....I like the watch. What can I say? Thing is, frankly, I could have had a decent G Shock for half the price. For the same price I could have had a the most expensive G Shock I ever owned.
I can't talk about it's durability. I don't plan to attack a Army on a Beach, or one in a desert somewhere. I don't even plan to wear it mowing the yard. I am sure it could do all that though.
Bottom line it's a nice watch, that is a little expensive for ME. I suppose the price it the only negative thing I can personally find wrong.
But then, you get what you pay for.
