Luminox Celebrates 20+ Years With The Navy SEALs Via A Gold-Accented Diver

In 1993 the Navy SEAL’s Assistant RDT&E Officer was tasked with finding a new timepiece for the ultra-elite fighting force, ultimately leading to a collaborative relationship with American watch outfit, Luminox that would birth the now-iconic Luminox Navy SEAL Watch. For more than 20 years this tactical timepiece has stood as a staple amongst Luminox’s lineup, though the company has now unveiled the latest addition to its ANU (Authorized For Navy Use) series with the limited edition Navy SEAL 3501 Gold Set.

Built around a 45mm case composed of Luminox’s proprietary carbon material, CARBONOX, this limited edition, all-black watch is juxtaposed by various gold accents which are a nod to the rank stripes and buttons on dress uniforms, as well as the Frogmen’s famous SEAL Trident — which is also emblazoned in gold on the watch’s stainless steel case back. Water-resistant to 200 meters, the Navy SEAL 3501 features a uni-directional rotating bezel complete with a gold circle encompassing its tempered scratch-resistant mineral crystal cover and a gold screw-down crown. Sold in a special hard-case, this limited edition Luminox is offered with two straps: a black polyurethane item; and a NATO strap with stainless steel buckle and matching gold hardware. Priced at $545, the Luminox Navy SEAL 3501 Gold Set is limited to only 1,618 pieces worldwide.
