Some of you may be confused about the difference in the use of Luminox Light Technology (LLT) and Super LumiNova in Luminox timepieces. In order to have a clear understanding of the difference between these two, we must know what are they individually.  Luminox Light Technology LLT (Luminox Light Technology) is a light source, able to glow for years withoutneed of recharging. It consists of a glass tube of borosilicate glass, which is internally coated with a phosphor powder and filled with tritium gas. Phosphorus is known as a luminescent material which gets its glowing when exposed to UV-light. The same...

ICE SAR stands for the Icelandic Association for Search and Rescue and as the name suggests, they perform search and rescue missions in different emergencies, such as avalanches, shipwrecks, storms, eruptions, earthquakes and sub-zero winters. ICE-SAR was founded in 1928 due to Iceland’s extreme weather conditions and lack of a professional army. Iceland, widely known as "the Land of Fire and Ice", has some of the largest glaciers in Europe and the world's most active volcanoes. Due to these harsh forces of nature, a strong force of volunteers from a small Icelandic population of 330,000 has risen to the occasion to help...

If you know about Luminox, you should probably know what is CARBONOX™ and CARBONOX+™. However, do you know what is the difference between the two type of material used in our watches? Don't worry, after reading this post, you will definitely understand better and make the right choice of Luminox watch to strap on your wrist! CARBONOX™ In 2006, Luminox introduced an innovative carbon compound material, which consists of carbon long bars or carbon powder in varying percentages depending on the model.  With CARBONOX™, Luminox produces timepieces that have a very rigid and hard finish, taking the watch’s overall durability to...

To support Scott Cassell's mission, Luminox launched the latest Deep Dive 1550 collection and it is also the first time Luminox used their lightweight CARBONOX™ in its Deep Dive collection. Anyone who is familiar with Luminox, would know who is Scott Cassell. As for those who don't, Scott was active in military service as an expert military operative, a counter-terrorism dive instructor for special operations and a sniper. After retiring, he founded two non- profit organisations - Undersea Voyager Project (UVP) and Sea Wolves Unlimited. The UVP is to help interested parties to explore and discover more about the underwater environment...

What is Luminox Light Technology?  A LLT (Luminox Light Technology) is a light source, able to glow for years without need of recharging. It consists of a glass tube of borosilicate glass, which is internally coated with a phosphor powder and filled with tritium gas. Phosphorus is known as a luminescent material which gets its glowing when exposed to UV-light. The same effect appears when phosphor powder and tritium gas are isolated in a glass tube. Why is the light intensity of LLTs not always the same The luminosity of LLT's is perceived differently by humans. The following factors do have...
