I have a navy seal black ops edition. It's been a great watch for 4 years now.  The cool thing about it is it only illuminates enough for me to see it, but across a dark room you could not. That way I will still know what time it is in the middle of a ninja mission without giving up my position.   One of those things every man "just gotta have". I wear it hunting, fishing, to work on occasion, and sometimes during sex.

lol. nice review.

 

my buddy is looking to buy one. i have heard of them vaguely, but tonight was the first time i acutally looked at their webiste. friggin EXPENSIVE!!! i saw one that (if i were to buy) i would buy the 3081.BO with the rubber band. i guess lumiox is just like everything else. its all about how much you want to spend. some fy fisherman buys a $1000 rod while others are happy with $100.

 

i myself have always wore a casio tough solar watch. does the job and has other functions.

 

the lumiox watches seem to be nice, with the tritium gas tubes, that are suppose to be extremely bright. my glock sight is tritium and it glows like hell in pitch dark.

 

from what i read on their site, the gas tubes have a lifetime of 25 years (really nice) but the battery life is 5 years, but they do no reccommend you replacing the battery, instead send it back to them so they can replace the battery. my only guess for that is because of the extreme depths the watches can be in, they dont want you to mess up an o ring or gasket?? i could be wrong

Been wearing the same Luminox since 2005.  Put it through hell and back.  Worth the $$$.

pretty crazy to me that a watch can withstand 600 feet of water. the amount of pressure in 600 feet of water must be insane, yet these watches are advertised to take it.

My 29 dollar timex tells me what time it is, has a light, alarm and chrono.  All I need. Been running good for about 15 years so far.

I actually had a Luminox watch once.  I was packing an elk out and somehow it got ripped off my wrist.  No more.

I've been wearing the same Seiko 6309 since 1980. You can keep your Luminox.

Easy to claim that when they know no one in their right mind is going to test it (at least not while wearing it anyway)!

​Kype, You are not wrong just incomplete most likely the thing is the same as it is with my TAG they do all that plus it is pressurized with Nitrogen for a number of reasons.

I own 5 of them all good watches, i wear the titanium diver as my every day watch as its pretty much bullet proof. The others I rotate and wear when not working. They all have top notch swiss movements. Im kinda a watch geek though even own a Rolex that i wear all the time.20170420_162336.jpg20170420_162325.jpg20170420_162348.jpg

I will say this.  Get the rubber band not the velcro one.  If you wear it all the time and sweat in it it stinks.
