The Navy SEALs and More
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. He worked with Cohen to develop a watch specifically for them and a revolution was born.
After Luminox provided the watches to the SEALs, Luminox began marketing the same style of watch (Model 3001) across the country and the world. As the watch gained reknown, Luminox was approached by US Air Force pilots flying the F-117 Nighthawk fighter jet in 1999 — Luminox developed a watch for these pilots and then contacted Lockheed Martin, which turned into an exclusive arrangement to produce Lockheed Martin timepieces.
Throughout the following 20 years, Luminox has never strayed from its mission and this has been confirmed and validated by the many elite military and law enforcement units that have adopted Luminox as their own personal “standard equipment”. The man on the street has shown particular interest in Luminox, figuring rightly that if Luminox could be trusted to develop a watch for use by Navy SEAL on critical night missions, then its watches have to be able to stand up to everyday use.
From here on, Luminox remains determined to continue combining cutting edge technology, forward-thinking design and extreme performance.
