Luminox is kicking off 2016 as the official watch licensee of the Navy SEALs. The relationship started over 20 years ago when the SEALs were searching for an analog timepiece to suit their needs and discovered Luminox with its unique self-powered illumination technology for optimum visibility day and night in any condition.
“As a research, development, test, and evaluation officer for the Navy SEALs I was asked to find a dependable watch for night missions. After testing a variety of brands in the most arduous conditions, Luminox was the only one still functioning at the end of the evaluation.” Nick North, Navy SEAL (Retired).
Since the first meeting with Nick North, and the first Navy SEAL series, Luminox has continuously updated its line of watches to meet the demanding requirements of this community of warriors. The Navy SEAL Colormark series is the evolution of that original series of timepieces. In 2013, Luminox had the opportunity to develop a new series of watches with upgraded features and again collaborated with SEALs, both active duty and retired. This partnership resulted in the A.N.U. (Authorized for Navy Use) series featuring a black PVD-plated stainless steel case, with screw crown and case back, sapphire crystal, multi-jewel Swiss quartz movement and 10 year lithium battery.
The Luminox ANU has 200 metres water resistance, and is armed with a Swiss Ronda 715 Lith HH6 movement. Its battery, the CR2060 is estimated to have 8 years of battery life. This special version is cased in 316L stainless steel with PVD treatment. The inner rim is fitted with luminous hour markers right beneath a Sapphire anti reflective glass. On a rubber strap, the watch is as rugged and stealthy as it gets.
The Luminox ANU retails at S$1,016.50 including taxes and can be found at Luminox Authorised dealers across the country. Possibly the best range of Luminox’s collection, the Luminox Navy Seals ANU is ideal for missions ranging from desk diving to real depths of seawater.
Singapore Luminox watches are available at leading department stores (TANGS Plaza at Orchard Road, TANGS VivoCity, Robinsons Orchard, Metro The Centrepoint, OG Orchard Point) and authorised watch retailers.
