Originally developed for the Navy SEALs, the self-sustaining illumination glows continuously for 25 years without draining batteries or requiring sunlight. Its black-on-black face features microgas dots on the hands, bezel and hour marks for bright visibility at night. Carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer 44mm case, rotating bezel and case back. Genuine Swiss quartz movement. Hardened mineral glass crystal. Stainless steel crown. Polymer 23mm-thick strap. Water-resistant to 200 meters. Case diameter: 1.73".
All Luminox watches feature a self-powered illumination system employing tiny micro gas light sources.
This unique Swiss technology guarantees unsurpassed
ability to read the time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week,
for up to 25 years. Each watch has micro gas lights
mounted on the hands, dial, and when necessary also
on the bezel.
This unique technology does not depend on an external light source to “charge” fluorescent paint on the
dial or hands in order to glow, nor do Luminox watches
require the push of a button to light up as do watches
