• Anti-reflective (AR) hardened mineral glass at this price point is great to see.
• 60-click rotating bezel with tritium pip.
• Plastic case/bezel feels very hard, but appears a bit cheap.
• Tritium tubes on indexes and hands, super bright all night with purple and orange markers to show orientation. It is a truly awesome sight when you glance at it in the middle of the night.
• Swiss made (for what its worth).
• The side of the comfortable rubber strap has a ruler on it in Inches/mm. I've used this several times when I couldn't find a proper one.
• Low legibility in day and night with contrasting white hands on the black dial.
• Easy to use standard crown.
My issue with the watch is the price point vs. the value and durability. This watch is used by Seal teams and law enforcement as it's light weight and low contrast makes it perfect from a tactical perspective. I feel this no frills watch It's just not worth $200 plus dollars. The problem is the placement of the glass face, lies slightly above the bezel. I cracked the glass face by merely brushing against a door knob. I wish I had a better story. "I busted the face of my Luminox tactical watch, as I backhanded the mouth of the merciless dictator!" Sounds better right?!
The bezel has solid teeth, with a small blue tritium vials at the marker position.
The watch band itself features a very soft, slightly elastic, silicone rubber, with 2 keepers. One of the band keepers is kept in place by the clasp, which is a dual-tang style, by 2 protrusions from the side of the band, while the other is free to slide around. A particular gripe for me personally, is that the captured keeper feels like it's too close to the clasp, but that's a personal opinion.
The mineral glass is clear, was free of scratches and defects, and came with the standard shipping "protective" plastic on it, like the watch band.
The stem itself, is recessed and protected, and has a solid first position to adjust the date only. Another solid pull on it, and the minute hand moves well. A concern of mine, is an amount of "play" between the stem, and minute hand. About 1/16 of a turn must be made when changing direction of travel, before the hand engages. To me, this is acceptable, since I wasn't expecting a $5,000 watch with the finest of mechanisms.
Takes a standard cr-2032 battery (CE-2132 stamped on case back ear), which I presume I'll be changing myself, since this does not come with a factory warranty. Not an issue, as common sense would dictate to be very careful about removing the case back, and even possibly applying a very small amount of silicone to the seal on the underside to maintain a watertight seal.
Came in the standard Luminox watch box/case, with manual, and registration card (which is useless as Amazon is not a registered dealer).
Included a photo comparison between this 3051, and my 10 year old 3001.
I'm happy with my purchase, and will update if any issues arise.
Watch face accidentally hit a toilet tank on the edge of the face/"crystal", chipped, and now I've got bits of the lens floating around the face, as well as a pretty good sized chip in the edge of the face, opposite the crown. It hasn't affected FUNCTIONALITY, but I assume it's no longer waterproof, nor is it very pleasant to look at. Pretty disheartened, and I guess I'll be going with the G-Shock "Master of G" after this one. Had higher expectations, but this just failed.
First of all, if you look closely at the watch itself and/or read the product description, you will notice that this watch claims to be water resistant to 100 meters, which by my math is roughly 300 feet. This is a pretty standard water resistance depth for any quality watch. Fast forward to summer of 2012 when I went scuba diving and the watch began to take on water at 60 feet. The crystal fogged up from the inside and the watch stopped running shortly thereafter. I checked online at the Luminox website for a repair facility. There's only one authorized Luminox repair facility in the US and it is in Cranston, Rhode Island. I shipped my watch at my own expense all the way across the country. Included with the watch was an 8.5x11 inch piece of paper on which I had written a nice letter explaining what had happened along with my name, phone number, email address and return mailing address.
Well, a couple months go by and I've still not received my watch back nor have I heard a word from this jewelry store in Rhode Island. I call, no one answers, I leave a message with my name and number and a brief explanation of why I was calling and wait. Another week. Nada. I call again and leave another message, I send an email too. Finally, a few days later someone calls me back and tries to tell me that they got a watch shipped there via UPS, but it didn't have a name or anything with it, so it's just been sitting there. Okay, fine, whatever. Can you fix it?
And this is where I need whoever is reading this to pay very close attention. You can verify this by looking at the very top of the [...] website where is says (I'll just copy/paste this part): "Please be sure to purchase your Luminox watches through an authorized dealer or official retailer. If purchasing from an unauthorized dealer, one must be cognizant that there is a risk of receiving a defective piece, or a watch of questionable origin, and perhaps even a counterfeit. Be particularly careful when purchasing via the internet. Luminox does not honor any warranty claims that are not accompanied by the original documentation sealed by an official Luminox retailer. For more information on our international guarantee policy and authorized points of sale please consult: [...]"
What this so delicately means is: If you don't buy your watch from an *authorized* dealer, YOU HAVE NO WARRANTY. Amazon IS NOT an authorized dealer. Whether I got a counterfeit watch, I can't say, but I've ordered hundreds of items from Amazon and figured I would be okay.
So, I pay a little over $100 for repair. This is now a $323 watch.
I get the watch back and put it back in my rotation. As I said in the first sentence, I'm a watch junkie. I have 3 Citizen watches including a Navihawk and a nice diving watch with a depth meter and dive-time indicator built in, a high-end Casio G-Shock, a couple of Invicta's, and a nice diving watch manufactured by Aaron Lelah jewelers. I do not abuse my watches. So I'm wearing the Luminox at work recently and I need to change the date because we've just ended a month with only 30 days and the date on the watch always goes to 31 regardless. This watch is built like nearly every other analog watch with a date function. You adjust such things by manipulating the crown. When the crown is pushed all the way in, the watch runs and you cannot adjust the settings. If you pull the crown out to the first click and turn it, you can adjust the date without moving the hands, if you pull it out to the last click, you can adjust the time. The crown was very difficult to pull out, but I managed to hook a fingernail underneath it and pull it out. I changed the date and tried to push the crown back in. It was difficult to do, but I managed. "That was weird!" I thought, but continued working. A few hours later I looked down to see that my watch was not running. I checked the crown but it appeared to be pushed in all the way. I pushed on it anyhow and saw that the second hand started to tick. I took the watch off and gently tapped the crown on a flat surface and that seemed to seat it and the watch began to run normally.
Fast forward a few months later when daylight saving's time has ended and I was trying to adjust the watch again. This time, I could not pull the crown out with my fingers no matter how I tried. I ended up using a small screwdriver to pry the crown out and much to my surprise, the entire crown and its stem popped completely out of the watch and landed on the ground.
That was the end of this watch. Replacing the crown did not make it work again.
In my opinion, and comparing this watch to the several other quality timepieces I own, this is simply an overpriced cheap, plastic watch with crap for components and its relying on the Luminox name and some luminous hands to sell. The bezel is plastic, the case is plastic, the crown piece is plastic. It claims water resistance to a depth of 100 meters but flooded at a mere 60 feet. It broke, physically broke (!) under normal use conditions. And since I didn't buy it from an "Authorized Luminox Dealer" I'd have to ship it 3,000 miles and pay over $100 for another repair and I am not prepared to turn this into a $423 watch.
I don't know about other Luminox watches. Personally, I thought they were supposed to have a reputation for being basically indestructible under harsh military and/or combat conditions. At least that's how they portray their product. This particular watch had all the strength of a Swatch. I was highly disappointed and have wasted over $300 on this endeavor. May you not do the same.

This is my second Luminox and I love them. The rubber wrist band wears out and breaks rather quickly, but I got a black steel band for it.
