DEDICATED TO THE ICE-SAR MISSION - Luminox ICE-SAR Arctic 1003.ICE

 

Icelandic Association for Search and Rescue (ICE-SAR) provides search-and-rescue and accident prevention services in Iceland, where the weather is utterly unpredictable and mere seconds can mean the difference between life and death for someone who requires rescue or evacuation. It is comprised of 99 rescue units and over 3,000 volunteers who are always on standby 24/7 for emergencies. ICE-SAR is not only a volunteer organization, but it is also funded through private donations rather than by the government.

In the beginning of the 20th century, around 70 or 80 seafarers were killed around Iceland, which is a large amount for such a small nation. Since we started the Survival and Training Center back in 1985, the progress has been huge, and we’ve already had four years in which there have been no casualties at sea around Iceland, and that’s truly amazing.” – John, ICE-SAR

 

In addition to ice, heavy rains and strong winds, ICE-SAR has to deal with limited daylight visibility as Iceland remains in partial or total darkness during several months in winter. In such conditions, LUMINOX watches and their unique self-powered illumination system – providing constant glow for up to 25 years - truly becomes an essential gear to ICE-SAR teams in order to conduct their missions.

The ICE-SAR 1003.ICE is the newest addition to the collection, offering a sleek navy blue dial and strap color. SHOP NOW
