When watch industry veteran Barry Cohen came across a Swiss self-powered illumination system, he knew that it would make watches more visible and easier to read in low or no light situations. Recognizing a need in the market, Cohen partnered with friend Richard Timbo, and in 1989, Luminox was born. Since then, Luminox (Lumi being Latin for “light”, Nox for “night”) is driven by a commitment to offer cutting-edge luminescence and readability in its line of high-performance sports watches.
Luminox is the original self-powered luminous watch brand, and is the watch of choice for U.S. Navy SEALs, Lockheed Martin’s F-117 NighthawkTM stealth and other jet fighter pilots, elite forces worldwide and professional divers. Luminox watches glow up to 25 years in any light condition. Always visible, tough, powerful and accurate, Swiss-made Luminox is the ultimate night vision gear for adventurers and peak performers.
