Luminox, the original self-powered luminous watch brand, is the watch of choice for U.S. Navy SEALs, F-117 Nighthawk™ Stealth jet pilots and other elite forces.
Like many other American success stories, Luminox came from a forward-thinking individual realizing a need in the market and meeting it. Barry Cohen, a watch industry veteran, came across a Swiss self-powered illumination system and knew that it would make watches more visible and easier to read in low or no light situations. He asked his friend Richard Timbo if he would like to join him. Luminox was born in 1989 (Lumi is Latin for light while Nox is Latin for night), driven by a commitment to offer cutting-edge luminescence and readability in its line of high-performance sports watches.
Luminox’ self-powered illumination (LLT) allows one to view time at-a-glance, no matter what the light level, even in complete darkness – up to 25 years of complete darkness, in fact. Luminox watches also glow 100 times brighter than most other luminous watches, giving them superior readability.
Tough, powerful and accurate, Swiss Made Luminox is the ultimate night vision gear for serious athletes, rugged outdoorsmen and other peak performers.
Essential Gear, ALWAYS VISIBLE.
