¿Dónde se fabrican los relojes Luminox?
Luminox watches with unique technology are made in Switzerland. They are equipped with a sophisticated Swiss lighting system that makes the indexes, hands and bezels of these watches glow without pressing a button or being exposed to light. Luminox watches have been shining and bringing innovation to the market for more than 25 years.
Its founder, Barry Cohen, found a Swiss system that could facilitate greater readability in the watch in low or no light. Given the importance of good underwater visibility, the first Luminox watch was a diving prototype, which caught the interest of the Marines. From that moment on, Luminox began distributing its watches in the United States and around the world.
We have talked to Laguarda Joyeros, a Barcelona watchmaker and distributor of Luminox watches, among other outstanding brands. They have explained to us what you should know about these watches, whose name already gives a good clue as to the characteristic that has made them famous.
Los relojes Luminox: siempre visibles, en todas sus colecciones
Thanks to their lighting technology, Luminox watches are always visible 24 hours a day, whatever the visibility conditions. Unlike other brands, Luminox watches use their own technology, which in the past was reserved for military use. All models from this Swiss brand use tiny tritium gas lights in borosilicate capsules, making the hands, hour markers and bezels always glow. As a result, Luminox watches are always legible at first glance, whatever the circumstances.
Luminox watches in the Sea series are specially designed for professionals and anti-terrorism and diving experts such as the Marines, the Scuba legend Stan Waterman, The US Coast Guard, the Ertzaintza or the Mossos d’Esquadra. These security professionals have integrated Luminox into their equipment to carry out their duties. They have a special autonomous lighting system, so that visibility is also possible on diving nights, no matter how deep the darkness is.
The Air series models were designed by Lockheed Martin Corporation, the world’s largest manufacturer of defence aircraft. Originally, these watches were developed specifically for the pilots of the U.S. Air Force F-117 Nighthawk Stealth Jets. Today, thanks to their precision, Air watches are supplied to elite pilots of all the world’s forces.
And finally, Luminox’s high-performance Land collection is supplied to military professionals, police, SWAT teams, border patrols and other state forces.
