Luminox was born in 1989, driven by a commitment to offer cutting-edge luminescence and readability in its line of high-performance sports watches. The Luminox Navy SEAL watch is the timepiece that made Luminox famous. In 1993, the Assistant RDT&E Officer for the Navy SEALs, Nick North, was asked to seek a more dependable watch for night missions and found the solution at a trade show where he discovered Luminox. Luminox’ self-powered illumination (LLT) allows one to view time at-a-glance, no matter what the light level, even in complete darkness. Wear a Luminox for a week and you won’t want to miss it.
