I needed a lightweight watch for hiking because my stainless steel Luminox got heavy while lifting my arm on the trail all day. This was a perfect choice weighing in at just 56 grams. I barely even feel it on my wrist. I love the ice blue tritium markers on the hour marks. It makes telling the time in the middle of the night in the firehouse bunkroom a breeze. It has a 200 meter (656ft) water resistance rating, making this an entry level diver watch. Most of us will not be diving with this but now I don't need to worry at all when I go swimming in the pool. The silicone band is comfortable and allows for many different wrist sizes. I have a smaller wrist and there are still 3 holes left on the band so no one should have a hard time making it fit. The blue everything is very sporty and stylish, matching perfectly with the rest of my black and blue hiking gear. This watch was well worth the money. I'm very happy with my purchase. TIP: buy the Overstock jewelry protection plan because Luminox will not cover certain things because it's from Overstock. And it may halep to clear yup some things the product description. First of all, the watch is made of lightweight carbon reinforced polycarbonate, not stainless steel. Secondly, it has a hardened mineral dial window, not both. It says this on the caseback (see pictures). And thirdly, the caseback is a screw-down, not a snap down (see pictures). Hope that helps some of you considering this product
I purchased this watch & REALLY ENJOYED wearing it, VERY SPORTY & DURABLE. However, 3 1/2 short years after purchase, it stopped. I had the battery replaced to no avail. When I contacted LUMINOX, the only help??? I received was big told to take it to a jewelry store. No info about the warranty or any other aid. Great watches but customer service at LUMINOX leaves A LOT TO BE DESIRED.
I must admit the other reviews almost made me not purchase this watch, but I'm glad I did. The level of illumination is perfectly bright from a completely dark room to a dimly lit room. I just have to assume the others were expecting a light up watch, this is not the case; there is no button to push for light. But the Luminescent parts work great. Watch shipped in perfect condition, not one complaint.
Had the new watch three months now and it is great. Looks the way I hoped and the dial shows at movies and in the night the way I hoped. Not too much but clearly visible. Beautifully crafted watch. I tried to find this model locally but wasn't able to.
