I have the all Stainless version Here

Great watch, over 7 years and still going strong. Glows just as bright as the first day I got it.

Got a luminox watch right before I joined the Army.

I took it with me through Basic and it survived. Scratched up a bit, but fine. Also made it through AIT.

Telling time at night came in handy.

This place has good prices. I got mine here 2 years ago. I love it. I use it like a flashlight in the pitch dark.

Had mine for 6 years. Great watch. Beat it up unmercifully. Keeps great time.

It was TOO bright when I first got it. Now the Tritium has dies a little it's perfect. Not looking forward to when the Tritium dies completely (half life is approx. 12 years).

I've had my Luminox stainless steel SEAL watch since I purchased it online in 2003 while deployed in Guantanomo Bay. Its been beat around a good deal and totally waterproof. Still works great - I think I replaced the battery once but that's it. If you're worried about losing your watch, get a Waterborne dive band www.divesports.com/mall/waterborne_watchbands.asp

Have had mine for 6 years worth of baging it around on the farm, and hard use here at work.

Replaced one battery.

Last month I managed to crack the crystal, called and it's 90 bucks to repair.
Been wearing it daily to see how long it holds out.

I might just get a new $130.00 Traser instead of repairing this one when it does croak.

I normally only get 3-4 years out of a watch on account of the farm work/mud/sand/diesel.

Stay safe!

That's the one I have. Model 1590 from the Marine series. I have had mine for about three years. No problems. Very bright dials.
