Field watches first appeared in the 1880’s, but became more prevalent in the early 20th century when military personnel and outdoor enthusiasts asked for more accurate timing and water and shock-resistant watches for use in the field. With the advent of highly accurate, low-maintenance Swiss quartz movements, these watches are the natural go-to choice due to their easily readable dials.
Because of this, the Field watches have become the most endearing gear like T-shirts, sneakers, or well-worn blue jeans. For more than a century, the Field watch has remained one of the most-loved American watch styles. Luminox now spreads the Field watch’s popularity, with its new Field series.

In keeping with the current large-size trend in sport watches, the new Field series consists of watches that are either 42mm or 47mm in diameter. They come with a stainless steel case, fitted with either a rugged leather strap with signature steel buckle, or an integrated solid-link steel bracelet that comfortably contours to the wrist.

The Field chronograph watch is equipped with multiple functions, including center stop second, add and split functions, and 1/10 counter. On the alarm versions, an exclusive design sound box provides adequate loudness when the alarm sounds, whether in a noisy outdoor or daily environment.

A highly scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating is standard on this series. The watch dial is enhanced by 12 LLT (Luminox Light Technology) gaseous light tubes that glow continuously for more than 25 years and 100 times brighter than other luminous watches.
