Luminox Tactical Navy SEAL Dive Review

Luminox Tactical Navy SEAL Watch Review
Luminox is not the typical brand that W&R does reviews on. It has a special place and deserves some acknowledgement. Luminox is an American success story. Luminox is known for its “Luminox Light Technology”, this is tritium gas filled tubes. Unlike Superluminova, it always glows 24/7! In 1994 Luminox was called upon by the US Navy SEALs to make an even tougher watch that could with stand their training and missions. 
A few generations later emerges the Luminox Tactical Navy SEAL Dive watch. This version now comes in a lightweight tactical version. The case, bezel, case back, and strap are black giving a nice stealth like appearance. The case and bezel are made of reinforced PC carbon fiber. This watch has a Swiss Quartz movement, mineral crystal, and comes on a black polyurethane strap.  

Pros - Tough watch, good enough for the US Navy SEALs!

Considerations - Mineral crystal scratches easily.

Case: Stainless Steel
Case Diameter: 43mm
