Product Details:

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.

Originating in the 1880’s, the field watch gained popularity during the First World War due to soldier's demands for reliable and portable timepieces. Trench fighting required quick, accurate timing so watches had to be small enough to be worn on the wrist. The battlefield environment also created a need for exceptionally water and shock resistant watches, and the Field watch quickly evolved a distinctive style – rugged and utilitarian with virtually no embellishment.
For almost a century, the Field Watch has epitomized American heritage style, and its popularity continues to grow. Over time, the style has been updated and contemporized growing in case size with the trend toward larger watches, and also with the addition of quartz movement reliability with the advent of this technology. Today Field watches come in men's and women's models, with quartz or mechanical movements and many with automatic mechanical movements.
Luminox offers a variety of field models in quartz and automatic rounding out our collection of the ultimate LAND series. Our best-selling pieces are the Atacama Field series which blend the functionality of a modern Swiss Made timepiece with an updated retro look. The ultimate incarnation of the Field watch, it is rugged and reliable, truly iconic in design and a terrific daily wear timepiece, suitable for the field, the office or the boardroom. The Atacamas feature a solid stainless steel case, screw-down crown for added water resistance, and tritium-tubes for continuous illumination.
