Inspired by Navy Seals: Luminox Black Out Watches
The Luminox Navy SEAL watch is the timepiece that put the company on the map and brought it fame and a permanent place among the wide array of Swiss-made watches. The company was originally discovered in 1992 when Naval officer Nick North went on a hunt to find a more dependable watch for the Navy SEAL’s night missions. Once he learned about Luminox, he worked with the company to develop a custom-tailored timepiece that would satisfy the precise needs of the SEALS.
The outstanding feature of all Luminox watches is its cutting-edge illumination technology that allows high-performance even in blackout situations. To this day, the Luminox Navy Seal Black Out Chronograph collection continues to be on the most popular list for recreational divers and outdoor adventurers alike.
There are so many advantages to wearing this watch for sports and other timed activities, as the chronograph allows the wearer to hit the stop-watch function effortlessly. Many sports require gloves which make it difficult to maneuver delicate movements, but these watches were developed to make using the time-stamp with ease. And that is only one of the Black-Out collections’ best features...
The Luminox Light Technology
The unique Luminox Light Technology provides “at-a-glance” visibility, with a continuous glow all day and night, every day, regardless of external conditions - and for up to 25 years! The light source is not the typical phosphorescent paint that requires recharging from a light source. Nor is it a system that requires the wearer to push a button to turn on the battery-driven illumination.
The innovative light technology is self-powered and employs tiny micro gas (tritium) light tubes to create constant illumination, which is one of the collections’ most important and unique characteristics. Also known as borosilicate glass capsules, these tiny tubes provide ongoing visibility on the hour markers, hands, and in some cases on the bezels.
NOTE: Tritium is completely safe for day-to-day wear.
