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 group and all its brands including Luminox and Mondaine has been taking steps towards a more sustainable future for almost 50 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, we cover up to 80% of our own electricity requirements.
In addition, we just achieved comprehensive CO2-neutrality in the year 2020, through a partnership with non-profit Fairventure Worldwide, an NPO reforesting in Borneo, where trees are planted to offset our carbon emissions. Our eco balance sheet includes everything, from raw materials, transportation of components to our factory and Swiss HQ. As of 2021, our co2 neutrality will even include the shipping from the factory to all our direct customers – covering scopes 1,2 and 3 of the Greenhouse Gas protocol.
