THE ORIGINAL LUMINOX NAVY SEAL WATCH
The Luminox Navy SEAL watch is the timepiece that made Luminox famous. In 1992, 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 when he discovered Luminox. He worked with Luminox to develop a watch to their specifications and a revolution was born. For over 25 years, Luminox has partnered with the world’s toughest maritime commandos to continuously hone and refine a watch tough enough and useful enough to be considered “first line gear” for the finest warriors.
LUMINOX LIGHT TECHNOLOGY
The ALWAYS VISIBLE function is powered by an innovative Luminox Light Technology (LLT), a self-powered illumination system that utilizes tritium: tiny micro gas light tubes to create ultimate visibility in complete darkness, under any conditions.
This unique and advanced Swiss technology allows the watches to ensure at-a-glance visibility, meaning the watches provide a constant glow 24/7 for up to 25 years. While other watch brands use a phosphorescent paint on the markers or solar-powered technology that requires an external light source to produce a “luminous effect”, Luminox watches do not require any external sources.
LUMINOX + SUSTAINABILITY
Mondaine Watch Group. Sustainable Swiss Watchmakers.
It is our concern to question and improve processes and our corporate culture not only from an ecological, but also from a social and economic point of view. Mondaine has been taking steps towards a more sustainable future for over 30 years.
Since 2019, all of our watches are produced by solar-power in our state-of-the-art watch factory in Biberist Switzerland. With the installment of our own photovoltaic solar plant on the roof of the Mondaine factory we cover around 80% of our own electricity requirements.
In addition, we just achieved CO2-neutrality in the year 2020, through a partnership with non-profit Fairventure's where we planted trees to offset our carbon emissions.
