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.

The Luminox 3001.BO Original Navy Seal (Left) and the Traser P6508.900.H4.01 Shadow (Right) are watches made by two different companies but with so much in common. It’s quite obvious that Luminox and Traser had the same goal in mind when designing these two timepieces. They wanted a sleek, stealthy, mostly black and affordable watch. Both watches feature a 43mm plastic carbon fiber reinforced case, quartz movement, mineral hardened glass, rubber strap, rotating bezel, date on watch dial and tritium illumination technology.

Most of the differences in these two watches are found in subtle details within the case and dial design. However, one major difference that is noticeable immediately is the strap. The strap featured on the Traser Shadow is significantly thicker than the that of the Luminox Original Navy Seal. In fact, Luminox has used their thinnest strap available on this Blackout model. Compare the two and anyone would agree that the Traser strap seems as though it could handle a little more wear.

The traser H3 Aviator Jungmeister lives up to its role model, the Bu 133 Jungmeister, a unique aeroplane in the upper echelons of numerous aerobatics teams, in every aspect. Based on the aircraft instruments of this single-motored, one-seater double-decker, the steel frame of this watch visibly houses the Ronda 5010.B quartz movement with central stop-seconds and 30-minute/12-hour counter in the lower half of the dial. Time-stopping was key when flying Bucker aircraft, both for navigation and for calculating fuel consumption. Of course, flawless instrument readability was also essential here – which is certainly catered for with our unique trigalight lighting.
