Luminox combines the durability required by the US armed forces with precision Swiss watchmaking, in a blend of the latest innovations in watch technology. Luminox is noted for being the pioneer of small, luminescent tracer lamps and gained enough recognition that the company was contracted by the US Navy SEALs to build a dive watch for night missions. Their prestige and reputation quickly grew and soon the US Air Force employed them to create a watch for their F-117 Nighthawk stealth pilots.

Today, each Luminox watch features a miniture self-powering micro gas light – specifically borosilicate glass capsules that are securely embedded in the watch hands for illumination in low-light conditions.

The original Navy SEAL series exudes the confidence and courage of the original Navy SEAL dive team. This watch is water resistant to 200 meters (20 ATM, 600 feet) and features Swiss Quartz watch movement, a dual gasket crown piece, a durable shock resistant case, 4-year battery life and 1-year Luminox warranty.
