LUMINOX F-22 Raptor ™ 9240 SERIES
Like many other American success stories, Luminox came from a forward-thinking individual realizing a need in the market and meeting it. Barry Cohen, a watch industry veteran, came across a Swiss self-powered illumination system and knew that it would make watches more visible and easier to read in low or no light situations. He asked his friend Richard Timbo if he would like to join him. Luminox was born in 1989 (Lumi is Latin for light while Nox is Latin for night), driven by a commitment to offer cutting-edge luminescence and readability in its line of high-performance sports watches.

Our Aviation Series watches are tied to the Lockheed Martin Corporation, the world‘s largest defense contractor, and maker of some of the most spectacular aircraft ever engineered. Initially developed for U.S. Air Force pilots flying the F-117 Nighthawk Stealth jets, and now supplied to elite pilots of Air Forces around the world, these timepieces take precision to a higher level.
The F-22 Raptor 9240 series, is a tribute to Lockheed Martin‘s newest Stealth Fighter.It is crafted from solid ultralight titanium and incorporates design cues from the jet itself - the shape of the bezel and two of the center links of the bracelet were directly influenced by the angles of the wings of the F-22 jet. In addition, the shape of the case reflects the body of the jet and the crown mimics its engines. Finally, the dial was inspired by the actual instrument panel of the F-22. The case back features a detailed engraving of the F-22 Raptor, a result of our proprietary collaboration with Lockheed Martin.
