Luxury Sports Watches: While there are many higher priced sports wristwatches on the market than those by Luminox, there are few anywhere near as cool as these Swiss-made masterpieces with its unique glow-in-the-dark-visibility feature. These watches are a favorite of sportsman, military groups, and law-enforcement agencies around the world. All Luminox models contain tiny self-powered micro-gas lights in the hands and hour markers that make the watches 100-percent visible even in pitch-black darkness. The glow is 100 times brighter than other luminous watches and guaranteed to keep on shining for 10 years.
How cool is cool? A procurement officer of the U.S. Navy requested Luminox to make a diving watch for the Navy SEALs based upon the company's existing diving-watch model. A similar request for a customized watch came from pilots flying F-117 Nighthawk™ Stealth Jets for the U.S. Air Force. While it is convenient at all times, there are moments when being able to read a watch immediately is crucial.
Every Luminox is water-and-shock resistant and multi-jewel, and has Swiss-quartz watch movement. These watches remain water-resistant in depths more than 656 feet. Some of the timepieces have the self-powered illumination system built into the bezel as well as the hands and hour markers.
There are four U.S. Navy SEAL-inspired models, the SEAL Dive Watch, the Velcro Navy SEAL, the Carbon SEAL, and the Steel SEAL in Luminox's series of active-sports watches. Nighthawk, Yachting, Time and Date, and Executive Travel are additional series of the firm's dozen deluxe sports watches.
Luminox, which was founded by then-industry executive Barry Cohen, began in 1989, and has been illuminating thereafter! For more information, visit Luminox.com.
