This time, let’s have a look at Luminox Navy Seal. We reviewed some of the military field watches like Hamilton Khaki Field series. We pointed out that one of the factor to pick a military watch is to select the “pure blood” military watch brand i.e. whether the brand was used by military units. Some of the military field watches reviewed previously were used by soldiers in WWII. It was a long time ago. What kind of watches are military units wearing today? Luminox Navy Seal is one of the model that are welcomed by military units all over the world.
Luminox Navy Seal
In the beginning, Luminox was specialized in producing sport diving watch. What make Luminox watches special is its luminescent technology. It doesn’t need to expose to the light in order to make it glow in the dark. That’s mean you can read the time even if it is in dark completely. The luminescent technology is using borosilicate glass capsules or micro gas lights. They are in place on the bezel, hands and hour markers.
US Navy noticed this luminescent technology and Luminox was asked to make them a watch in 1993. Now, The U.S. Navy SEALs, U.S. Air Force pilots, FBI, SWAT teams, Coast Guard officers, etc are using Luminox Navy Seal.
As stated before, the killer feature for Luminox Navy Seal is the ability of showing time in whatever situation, even if it has no light. The constant illumination is last for 25 years. This killer feature makes this watch suitable for any conditions, especially suitable for diving.
The watch is water resistant up to 200m. The bezel is unidirectional so that you can measure the elapse time up to 60 minutes. It is useful to measure how long you stay in the water when you are diving. The date display window is at 3 o’clock. The watch is stock resistance. You don’t need to be fear the watch will be broken if you drop it onto the ground accidently.
The watch is running Swiss quartz movement. It keeps time well and accurate. The battery life is durable.
