Popular among the spec. ops. community all over the world, the Luminox watches are mostly associated with high-grade quartz movements. The new Luminox Deep Dive diving watch, however, is presented with a self-winding movement made by ETA S.A.
Rated for whole 500 meters (1650 ft.) of water resistance, the new Luminox Deep Dive is coming in a bulky case made of black PVD-treated reinforced steel.
To ensure the maximum level of safety for the diver, the watch is equipped with an automatic helium escape valve and a special patent-pending Bezel Locking System that also protects the setting crown from damage.
As usual for the brand, the watch is equipped not with traditional Superluminova luminescent compound, but with their own signature LLT (Luminox Light Technology) system that consists of many (17 in this particular case) micro-tubes filled with self-glowing tritium gas.
While the ten hour markers glow in green, the three tubes at 12 o’clock, as well as the pair of tubes on the extra wide minute hand and the “0” mark on the rotating bezel glow in electric blue. A study in legibility, that.
Being a serious diving tool watch, the new Luminox Deep Dive is shipped on a black polyurethane strap that features a wetsuit extension system.
