Though a newcomer when compared to its counterpart, timepiece maker http://luminox.800rpm.com” target=”_blank”>LUMINOX still has a storied history nonetheless. It all begin in 1989 when Barry Cohen, co-founder of Richard Barry Marketing Group, discovered an unique, self-powered illumination technology by a small firm in Switzerland. After negotiation, Cohen procured the rights to utilize the technology and Luminox was born.
The new brand enjoyed a very moderate sales rate initially, until http://navy.mil” target=”_blank”>U.S. Navy‘s special operation branch, http://seal.navy.mil/” target=”_blank”>SEALs, approached Luminox with a proposal – designed a combat mission oriented diving watch with a night viewing capability. After 9 months of research and design, Luminox created 3000 Series, currently the original watch of the SEALs.
Utilizing the same technologies, http://stussy.com” target=”_blank”>Stussy recently created its own line of Luminox watches. Featuring Swiss-made quartz movement, a scratch resistant mineral crystal glass, the watch is water resistant to 200 meters and comes with a Stussy-made velcro wrist strap plus a special case. A interchangeable rubber strap is also available. All can be purchase online at Stussy Direct.
