Scott Cassell is an expert military operative – a Counter-terrorism Combat Dive Instructor to the Special Ops community, an anti-piracy consultant and sniper and a former Special Ops combat medic and MedEvac Flight Instructor in the Army National Guard. Cassell is also a consummate adventurer, someone who embraces danger and relies on Luminox timepieces as part of his Essential Gear.
A man of high ideals and a true explorer, his exploits are undertaken with unwavering commitment to a clearly defined goal—the protection of the world’s oceans and their inhabitants. Never losing sight of this cause, Cassell explores the undersea world, documents his discoveries for science, and hunts down lawbreakers whose activities threaten ocean ecosystems. And Luminox is with him every step of the way, on his wrist and also supporting his work through sales of a new special edition set, the 3509.SC.SET.
When he’s not hunting down poachers, Cassell explores the underwater world. He knows that people are more motivated to protect the things they understand best, but the vast majority of the world’s oceans remain mysterious and unexplored. So Cassell created the non-profit Undersea Voyager Project (UVP), which helps marine researchers, educators, students, and “citizen scientists” explore and learn about the underwater environment through dives in specially equipped submarines and live webcasts of the expeditions. As an undersea explorer, Cassell has often encountered the unknown, documented his discoveries, and freely shared them with the scientific and educational communities. The UVP multiplies learning opportunities by opening the world’s unexplored oceans to those inspired by deep-sea discovery.
In support of the UVP, Luminox has created the new 3509.SET in collaboration with Cassell. A portion of proceeds from sales of this watch will go toward funding UVP and its mission of exploration.
The Swiss-made 3509.SC.SET is built for diving, with a sturdy Carbon Compound case. It has a stainless steel protected crown, unidirectional ratcheting bezel, 200-meter water resistance and a clear, high-contrast dial with Luminox Light Technology (LLT) that glow for up to 25 years, regardless of conditions, so that the watch is always visible. The orange dial is marked with both the Luminox logo and the UVP logo. The stainless steel case back depicts a 3D marking of Cassell’s U boat. The watch is provided as a set with three interchangeable straps – one polyurethane, one webbing textile, one Velcro faststrap with the UVP giant squid logo – a compass and a strap-changing tool – all packed in a dive mask storage box.
