History of the world famous Luminox Watch

Posted by Keller & George at 7:10:55 AM in Luminox (3)

XCOR Aerospace partnered with Luminox to produce a tough, durable watch for all day and night conditions. The Luminox watch was created in 1989 by a designer team Barry Cohen and Richard Timbo. They knew there was a market for a performance sports watch that could be seen in all light conditions. They came up with a Swiss illumination system that is completely self powered and the Limonox watch was born.

Before the watch design was completed XCOR and Luminox asked for input from astronauts, future astronauts and experienced test pilots. Together they formulated the perfect night-time timepiece able to be read with ease in all light conditions.

This made Luminox the ideal watch for use in space and in deep sea diving. The Luminox watch has a unique illumination system which is self powered, it will never let you down. The watch is favored by law enforcement, emergency personnel and elite military forces. All these agencies need a watch that can be seen in any light conditions, no matter how bad. The Luminox watch guarantees the dial can be seen in any conditions including complete darkness.

The Luminox watch is used by professionals around the world and is favored by scuba divers, navy seals and US Coastguard because the watch can be easily read even in the deepest dives on the darkest nights.

Favorite watch by the SEALS

Posted by Keller & George at 1:00:00 AM in Luminox (3)

With sturdy structure and precision engineering, Luminox is no wonder a favorite watch by the US Navy SEALS and the US Coast Guard. Both agencies are faced with daily extreme conditions from rough seas to weather disturbances and the challenges of deep diving. Luminox, incidentally, is also endorsed by SCUBA legend Stan Waterman, for its noted self-powered illumination system that helps divers get the right visibility even during long, deep night dives. One of our favorite Luminox for deep diving is the Navy Seal Series. It features an impressive water-resistance depth of up to 660 feet, protecting its quartz movement accuracy and chrono, date functions. The case is protected by carbon reinforced PC and the crown features a double-security gasket. Meanwhile, the glass is hardened mineral to ensure this Luminox stands the test of, not just time, but a tough situation.
Luminox is available at Keller & George on Millmont St., Charlottesville.
