Luminox 20th Anniversary Editions – Navy SEALs 8800 or 6300 ANNIVERSARY SERIES

In 1989, the Luminox brand – Lumi for “Light” and Nox for “Night” was founded in the USA, driven by a commitment to offer cutting-edge luminescence and readability in its line of high-performance sports watches.

Throughout the following 20 years, Luminox has never strayed from its mission and this has been confirmed and validated by the many elite military and law enforcement units that have adopted Luminox as standard equipment, units like the Navy SEALs, Air Force and Navy pilots, SWAT teams, Search and Rescue Teams, Elite Helicopter Squads, firemen and others from around the world.

To help celebrate the 20 year anniversary of Luminox, president Barry Cohen and his team have created two special edition watches. The new Navy SEALs 8800 ANNIVERSARY SERIES is based on the Navy SEAL watch, introduced in 1994, which was the watch that made Luminox famous in the watch world. The Navy SEALs chose Luminox for the brand’s outstanding quality, readability and for its rugged and purposeful look.
The 8800, a new version of the 3050 series, uses the original Navy SEAL watch as a starting point and kicks it up a notch – the case, unidirectional ratcheting bezel and case back are made of high-tech molded carbon-reinforced polymer, while the crystal is of highly scratch resistant, specially-hardened and tempered mineral glass. The double-gasket, push-in crown as well as the entire construction of the watch case guarantees water resistance to 200 meters.

The new Navy SEALs 6300 ANNIVERSARY SERIES, a brand new version of the 6100/6200, introduced in 2005, is available in stainless steel and was created for the 20th anniversary, carbon fiber dials, charcoal PVD plating and a waterproof leather strap option.
Both the 44mm 8800 and the 45mm 6300 series commemorate the 20th anniversary of the brand’s existence. Luminox timepieces are manufactured like few others. The proprietary Luminox Light Technology and the additional quality control steps Luminox mandates require extraordinary attention to detail and care in manufacturing. All Luminox Watches are Swiss-made.
