LA Police Gear sells Luminox watches at the absolute lowest price allowed by Luminox - if you see a lower price they are not an authorized dealer! Not only would you not have a warranty, but you may also be getting a fake Luminox watch. Click here for more information on how to tell a fake Luminox watch from a real Luminox watch.
The Luminox Watch Company began as an American success story and is evolving into a global brand. As has been said many times, “necessity is the mother of invention” and the Luminox story is a classic example. In 1989, the founder of Luminox, Barry Cohen, already in the watch business, found a need and filled it, when he learned of a unique Swiss self-powered illumination system, and reasoned that this would be a very helpful addition to the watch business, making watches more visible and easier to read in low or no light situations. This seemed quite logical since one of life's realities is degeneration of eyesight as one ages, and finding methods to see anything better (in this case – time) made sense. He contacted the owner of the illumination company and then visited the small Swiss firm in an attempt to develop a new brand of watches that would employ this unique illumination system (now called Luminox Light Technology), and a watch brand was born.
Luminox Watches use self-powered illumination using Luminox Light Technology (LLT), which allows one to view time-at-a-glance, no matter what the light level, even in complete darkness. This ease of being able to read time effortlessly fills a need for various military and law enforcement groups that other tactical watches do not. It is why the U.S. Navy SEALs Procurement officers went to Luminox to create dive watches for them for night missions. It is also why U.S. Air Force pilots flying the F-117 Nighthawk Stealth Jets asked the same. These are only two of many groups of “heroes” that truly understand and appreciate the inherent benefit of wearing a Luminox timepiece.
