What I wanted is a luminous watch I can read at the quickest glance, in virtually any lighting condition, without putting on my glasses; and for me, this Luminox watch falls short of that. Suspecting that I'd received a defective watch, I returned the first one to Pier 18, and reordered another through Amazon.com. There was no difference in the way the second watch illuminates, and like the first, I will return it.
I have experience with tritium-illuminated devices (see my reviews under Meprolight, AmeriGlo, and Trijicon Pistol Sights), and I owned one of the early Sensor Trilight tritium-illuminated LCD watches, back in the 70's. Plus, I've handled both Smith & Wesson and Luminox watches with tritium dials in the past, so, I kind of knew what to expect.
I did some online research, and indeed read that later Luminox watches do not illuminate as brightly as the earlier models did... If this is true or not I can't say firsthand, but I do seem to remember them being brighter. At any rate, the two Luminox watches I received glow nothing like the Luminox Website would have you believe they do.
Yesterday, the Reactor 67101 Oxide Watch I'd ordered for my wife's birthday, arrived. Holy cow! That's what I'm talking about! Not only is the watch beautiful, the dial illumination is outstanding! I promptly ordered myself a Reactor 73808 Gryphon! My new watch should be here tomorrow...
My purpose isn't to knock the Luminox product, as it is certainly a cool watch--very handsome, in fact! And to dark-adapted eyes, the dial illumination is perfectly adequate. But I'm expecting this Reactor Gryphon to blow the Luminox out of the water, illumination-wise!
Note: Both the Luminox watches I received were authentic and brand new. The presentation packaging was impressive. The one purchased from Amazon.com has a warranty issued through Amazon, and Pier 18 (a quality retailer) does their own thing for watch warranties. The Reactor watch warranty is intact no matter where you buy your watch; they don't require you to pay nearly twice what you have to before they'll honor their own warranty... In fact, Amazon.com is recognized as a Reactor Watch Dealer... I'm a big fan of the free-market system, and the Reactor Service Policy resonates with my own world view. Frankly, the Luminox Service Policy bugs me!
As to the quality and durability of either brand, Luminox or Reactor, I cannot comment. But based on the Reactor Watch my wife received, I'm anticipating my Reactor Gryphon to be a much more "substantial" watch than the Luminox appears to be (and I'm well aware that the Luminox is feather-light by design).
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'm a little disappointed that the second hand does not hit all of he marks on the nose; it hits most of the them. I expected a bit more from the "swiss made" label, but that is a small nit to pick.
Make sure you understand the fact that you may be buying the watch on Amazon from a seller that is not an authorized dealer for Luminox. My watch did not come with the warranty card from Luminox. Without that card, you don't get the 2 year manufacturer's warranty on the watch. I'm sure Luminox will service your watch, but you'll have to pay the price. You need to consider whether the price discount is worth the lack of the manufacturers extended warranty. This fact isn't clearly disclosed on the Amazon website by the sellers, but I learned of this before I purchased.
For me, the discount on the watch was enough to offset the risk. You still have the 30 day return policy with Amazon if you buy it from an Amazon fulfilled seller. However - buyer beware.
