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.
Field series 1800-Chrono-Alarm-1842 Steel Black 1-11h Green Steel signature bracelet
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. Some models are available in black PVD coated stainless steel case with a distressed leather strap.

On the alarm versions, an exclusive design sound box provides adequate loudness when the alarm sounds, whether in a noisy outdoor or daily environment. The 1820/1830 day-date models are water resistant to 200 meters, while all other chrono-alarms (1840, 1850, 1880, and 1890 models) are water resistant to 100 meters due to their exclusive sound box construction.
