Swiss watch brand’s self-illuminating watch glows blue in the dark
Luminox, creator of the Always Visible self-powered illuminated watch, has unveiled a new design in its Blackout collection.
Adding to its successful line of self-illuminating timepieces, the new Colormark 3150 is made in black steel and remains luminous 24/7 for up to 25 years, thanks to the Luminox Light Technology (LLT) system. The light system is powered by micro-size gas-filled, glass tubes, which are applied by hand to every single Luminox watch and cause the hands and hour markers on the dial glow blue when in the dark.
The watch case and dial are completely black, with a tone-on-tone look featuring matt black dials and polished black numbers, making them easy to read. The all-black styling of the watch is key for Luminox who see it as "essential for the covert operations undertaken by the wearers of the brand including, SWAT teams, helicopter rescue teams, American navy SEALS and stealth fighter pilots."
The case and bracelet of the 3152.BO model, pictured, is crafted in durable black PVD stainless steel. The 44mm watch case is built with a screwed case-back, screw-in crown, rotating bezel and an anti-reflective hardened mineral glass. The watch is Swiss Made and water resistant to 200m.
Other models in the Blackout collection include the best-selling Colormark 3051 design, produced in lightweight poly-carbon and is trusted by the Navy SEALS and other elite groups.
The watch will be officially launched at BaselWorld at the end of March.
