The Recon Series is the newest series available from Luminox and the first watch available is the ‘Point Man’. This series is very different from most of the other Luminox watches available today. While the overall style and build are similar to the Colormark Series, the function and illumination are completely unique.

You see the ‘Point Man’ is a watch designed for the ground solider and out door adventurer. And it’s built with features that are actually useful for those out and about. The first and most important unique feature is the Walking Tachometer. This feature is rarely found on any watch and allows you to judge exactly what speed you are walking. this is handy for real field situations where you need to determine how far something is, how far you have traveled and how long it will take to get where you are going. Combined with this feature is the sun-compass functionality and bezel for timing. The watch even has a countdown quadrant of the dial that can be used to time maneuvers. Very cool stuff.

Plus you also get a great looking watch once the sun goes down. Take a look at the night illumination (pictured below). Very stylish blue and orange tritium light the way and still allow the watch to be used for timing maneuvers at night. Not to mention that is also striking to the casual observer.

New for 2012, Luminox has introduced a new piece to the Black Ops Carbon Series, the Luminox 8801. In most cases, when Lumionx adds onto a series they come up with another awesome color scheme or something to set it apart from the rest. With the Luminox 8801 they have released a simple white on black version of the watch, something that most Luminox series include but that the Black Ops series was lacking.

If you like the Traser P 6600 Type 6 MIL-G, you will love the sleek styling of the P6600 Shadow. Available with the nylon NATO strap or black rubber strap, this watch features stealthy gray numerals, markings and hands on top of a black dial and bezel. Trigalight® illumination color is green.
