Luminox are originally an American company, to maintain the highest quality all of their watches are Swiss-Made.
Luminox was founded in 1989 by Barry Cohen. Cohen discovered a self-powered illumination system from Switzerland which would make watches more visible in low light situations. The name Luminox is derived from two Latin words, lumi which means light and nox means night. Luminox's major development came about in 1993 when the Navy Seals were looking for a watch they could use for night missions. Assistant RTD&E officer Nick North discovered Luminox at a trade show and worked with Cohen to develop a watch specifically for the Navy Seals. The watch designed for the Navy Seals ( the Model 3001) was born. In 1999 Luminox developed watches for the US Air Force and Lockheed Martin. The brand have now successfully taken their unique technology to over 30 countries around the world.
All Luminox watches include small gas lights (borosilicate glass capsules) on the hands and hour markers. The lights are always lit so the watches unique technology produces a constant glow for up to 25 years meaning they are always readable no matter what the conditions.

Being tough enough to withstand the demands of military and law enforcement use and to be able to view a watch under any circumstances is incredibly important for military and law enforcement groups which is why they chose Luminox.
