Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Luminox Evo Navy Seal Blackout Mens Watch 3051.BLACKOUT (Watch)
This is by far the best watch I ever bought. I had a swiss army summit xlt for years and replaced it with the same watch because I loved it so much. The only time you would ever see me not wearing that watch would be walking through metal detectors at air ports. I like watches that have a tactical look to them. Big watches or watches with a ton of bling aren't my style. When I would wake up in the mornings before my alarm clock sounded, I would have to hold my wrist inches away from my face to see if I had to get up for work. The markers around this piece aren't green paint that has to "charge" in the light. They're tiny tubes filled with a radioactive gas that luminates 24/7 with or without light. The blue markers look so sick and the orange 12 indicator is just as sharp. Supposedly the gas will emit the light for up to 25 years. The watch is made from carbon which seems to be very strong and is definitely very light. This might be hard to picture, but there are two little flares on the waistband that keep the two bands that hold down the excess strap in place so they don't slide up and let the excess band stick out. You can't really see the numbers on the face of the watch since its blackest out, but the markers around the face as well as the ones on the hour, minute, and second hand are white in daylight and are very visible against the contrast of the black face. The strap is a silky plastic that feels great against my wrist. Plastic is so much better than leather or fabric because it won't stink or decay after a while. If you're looking for a watch that looks tactical, this watch is for you. I would recommend this watch to any of my buddies.
EDIT 5/23/14: It's a great watch. I found the top band to be too stiff which made it want to creep around my wide wrist. I ended up posting it on eBay and used the money to buy a similar watch (Casio Men's GR8900A-1 G-Shock Tough Solar Digital Black Resin Sport Watch) which is comparable to the Evo. Take a look at your options before making a decision. I enjoy the fit, life long battery (via solar) and extra functions of the G-shock more than I did the Evo but that's my own two cents.

Great Review! You've convinced me to get one. If you enjoy the tritium tubes, check out some Deep Blue watches. Some models have up to 63 tubes in one watch, it's like a flashlight for your wrist.
