The world`s most luminous timepiece collection is here! From Switzerland, comes a very unique brand of watches that utilizes a very unique illumination technology. The Luminox self-powered illumination system is part of every Luminox watch. Micro gas lights are installed in the hands, hour markers, and sometimes bezels of the Swiss made quartz and mechanical watches. This awesome technology allows for illumination without exposure to light or the need to push a button. The gas glows for over 25 years continuously, and is actually guaranteed for 10. As a young company, Luminox was quickly discovered by the Navy Seals and contracted to build a watch for the SEAL`s night dives. And so the official original Navy SEAL dive watch was born in 1994. Sparking the attention of the Air Force was easy as well with these highly visible, water resistant, and shock resistant Swiss watches. Instead of making watches specifically for the Air Force pilots, Luminox contracted with Lockheed Martin to develop watches related to many of their aviation designs. They have the Lockheed Martin Collection which includes the F-117 Nighthawk, F-16 Fighting Falcon, and SR-71 Blackbird series. today, Luminox is tied to elite military and government organizations including: Navy SEALs, Air Force, FBI, Secret Service, Underwater Demolition Teams (UDT), Lockheed Martin, Border Patrol, Coast Guard, and various police and fire departments around the nation such as NYPD, NYFD, Las Vegas SWAT, and even our Northern neighbors, Canadian Special Forces. From the Latin "Light Night" Luminox truly will light up your nights, while also enduring your days. The latest watch trend Luminox really excelled in was creating a number of "TOTALLY BLACK" watches.
