Known for its proficiency with Tritium inserts, Luminox has a long history of providing durable and respectable watches. Whether you’re looking for a piece to see through your next combat mission, or are just looking for a swiss army knife of efficiency for every day life, the following 5 watches are top pics with a history of satisfied customers.
Luminox 3051 Evo Navy Seal Blackout
The 3051 is a great fit for those who favor subtle design and convenient function, and has been met with rave reviews since its release .Rather than stuff the 3051 with bling and dials like many modern watches do these days, the 3051 instead favors a simple black on black styling, resulting in a tactical and stealthy appearance. The watch is made from carbon, and combined with the silky plastic band, the whole package is strong, light, and comfortable. Like all Luminox watches, the lume glows like a torch in the darkness, and the 3051 features blue hands and hour markers with the typical orange marker at the 12 o’clock.
Luminox Field 42mm 1827
The 1827 is a great every day watch for those who prefer a classy and understated look. The face is large, clean, and uncluttered, making it extra easy to read the time. The dial is also protected by synthetic sapphire, the strongest material available. The swiss movement keeps impeccable time, and of course the lume keeps it visible at any hour. Water resistance to 200 meters is also a great feature for those who are frequently diving or swimming.
Luminox Recon Point Man A-8823-KM
The 8823 is a stylish trooper for those who appreciate a tactical and refined appearance. The dial is a little busier than the 1827, but the straight white on black hands ensure the time is still easy to read. The face is well protected by a sapphire dial, and the zulu strap is strong, stretchy, and soft. The lightweight and comfortable nature of the 8823 are it’s strongest selling suits, and if the unique style suits your character than you certainly can’t go wrong with this piece.
Luminox 1501 – The Beast
The 1501 is no joke. Built like a tank, it can remain functional to a depth of an incredible 500 meters, and the stainless steel case with sapphire dial will see it safely through your next doomsday. Unlike most of the other time pieces on this list, the watch is automatic, powered solely by the movement of your arm. Precise Swiss movement keeps accurate time with the best of them. The 1501 is the type of watch you could wear for through all of your long life’s adventures, conveniently reading time in light, dark, hell, and high water.
Luminox Recon Navigation Specialist 8832.MI
The Luminox Recon Navigation is a great Luminox piece featuring a couple unique qualities that separate it from the rest of the pack. First off, It is one of the only watches I’m aware of that includes an additional dial for a compass. This is a handy tool for those who frequently engage in outdoor activities, and can even be useful navigating city streets in conjunction with your smartphone GPS. Additionally a tachymeter measures your walking speed (useful for estimating trip length), and the strap includes a handy ruler. The Recon is really a swiss army watch in this sense, and is also quite a tough piece of equipment – the dial is sapphire, it is water resistant to 200 meters, and the case is built of PC Reinforced Carbon. The watch is masculine yet subtle, and a great pick for those who value utility in their watch choices.
