New Military-Styled Watches from Luminox

Feb 07, 2008

The Luminox Company bases its timekeeping creations upon innovation. Barry Cohen who founded the brand in 1989 realizes the idea that if you want to gain success in watch business, your watches need either to bear the most prestigious name or be equipped with most advanced technology.

Luminox watches are built for endurance. Their major advantage is supreme time-readability in any light conditions. Every Luminox timepiece provides hands-free illumination due to the special luminous technology. Even the brand's name - Luminox reflects the luminosity concept as it means 'night light'.

Being endorsed by the Navy SEALS and the U.S. Air Force, the brand's creations are aimed at active individuals who need a large-sized, boldly designed watch characterized by great durability. Today the Luminox Company is well-known as the timepieces' provider to the American military elite.

The ColorMark is one of the major Luminox watch lines. The line comprises watches commissioned by the Navy that required durable and functional timekeeping instruments.

The recently developed EVO ColorMark watch models, the same as all Luminox pieces, sport tritium hands and markers, meaning the watch will independently fluoresce even in complete darkness. MB-Microtech, the inventor of the luminous technology, produces the tritium tubes of the top quality.

Active sportsmen will no doubt appreciate the timepieces' hands-free illumination that is meant to last for over 25 years.

The new EVO ColorMark watches have cases measuring 44 mm in diameter that are composed of carbon-reinforced polymers. Every ColorMark watch features a black dial with the bezel, hands and numerals created in different color variations: yellow, orange, white, blue or green with fluorescence matching the color option.

The watches go on the brand's signature polyurethane straps. The timepieces are driven by Swiss quartz movements and offer 200-meter water-resistance.

One more reinvented timepiece of the brand, the EVO Ultimate Chrono, catches attention due to crosshatch markings on the link bracelet and bezel produced from stainless steel. This distinctive design element reminds an aerial map's images.

The watch is equipped with a Swiss quartz chronograph movement. The boldly designed steel case measures 45 mm in diameter.

The watch sports a screw-down crown, a big date movement and is 200-meter water-resistant.

The new Luminox F16 and F17 watches strengthen the company's link with the military world. Lockheed Martin, the Night Hawk jet's creator, was the one who supported Luminox in developing the pieces.

The F16 bezel reveals a scalloped design reminding the air scoop below the fuselage. The watch's hands will make you think of the angular lines of the jet's wings. The steel case of the F16 is 42 mm, while F17 is 45 mm. Swiss quartz movements power both models.
