Luminox RECON Leader Chronograph 8840 Series

Luminox introduces the Leader, a new chronograph alarm model in the successful RECON series. The watches in the RECON Series each bear the title of a Reconnaissance team member and have features specific to their roles in a RECON operation. The team leader coordinates, conducts and makes important decisions whenever required. He is in charge of successfully accomplishing the mission. Leadership qualities, such as determination, flexibility, a sense of calm, and the ability to quickly analyze a situation and make the right decision at the right moment are critical to being a RECON leader, and the key figure of a RECON team.

The RECON Leader has an alarm function as leaders (military or business) have deadlines to take into consideration and, when every second counts, the watch has a chrono function to enable split second timing. The World Time City Zones Bezel, also enables the leader to coordinate operations in different time zones.

All RECON models feature an easy to read walking speed tachymeter, either in kilometers (8841.KM) or miles (8842.MI) per hour, a contrast-color countdown quadrant of the dial that can be used to coordinate start times for manoeuvres, and a bezel compass rose to help establish the wearer’s position.

The watch strap features three common map scales which can be used to measure distances on maps without the need for calculations and an inch/cm measurement and comparison chart.

RECON Series watches are packaged in military-style MOLLE (MOdular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment) units that double as sunglass cases.

Designed in collaboration with former Swiss Army Military Security NCO Andrea Micheli, an internationally recognized law enforcement and military journalist and shooting instructor, the Swiss-made RECON Leader watch addresses the needs of military personnel for analog watches that can also be used as a simple and efficient navigation tool for orienteering, and other outdoor activities of civil consumers.
