At least in the modern-day, there might not be a name more synonymous with survival than Bear Grylls. So it makes perfect sense that Luminox, a brand that has carved out their own reputation in the world of outdoor- and survival-focused timepieces, would call on him to help design the Luminox XB.3749 watch.
A member of the Bear Grylls Survival MASTER Series collection, the 3749 chronograph is loaded to the gills with exceptional survival-focused features. That includes an ultra-tough CARBONOX+ (twice as strong as regular CARBONOX) case, a reliable Swiss-made Ronda 5030.D movement, water-resistance good for depths of over 1,000 feet, an anti-reflective sapphire crystal, and self-powered illumination good for up to 25 years. It even boasts a scale that can help you calculate your walking speed and an at-a-glance SOS Morse Code reference. As if that isn’t enough, Bear and the brand took it even further with the included durable rubber EPDM strap — which has an attached compass for navigation purposes. For $890, you’re not just getting an outstanding watch; you’re getting a wrist-mounted lifesaver.
