Luminox F-22 Raptor 9200 Series

       Created in 1989, Luminox is a typical American success story, which embodies the principle- necessity is the mother of invention, and is the master creation of Barry Cohen, a visionary entrepreneur, who exploited an empty space in the watch market, and created a whole new type of horological product designed to satisfy a particular need.

       Cohen implemented a Swiss developed, revolutionary illumination system that confers a very powerful light, an extremely valued quality if we consider the needs of professional divers, those who have to work in poor light conditions, or have eyes problems inherent in old age.

       However, the brand is internationally known for its privileged partnerships with the US Navy SEALs and other military groups that highly appreciate the precision, reliability and impeccable functionality of the timepieces produced by Luminox.


       Recently, Luminox introduced a brand new addition to its Air Watch Line, a bold collection inspired by the thrilling universe of military pilots-the new F-22 Raptor 9200 Series that pays a great tribute to Lockheed Martin’s latest Stealth Fighter, F-22 Raptor jet.

       A watch line defined by a charismatic combative design, the new F-22 Raptor 9200 Series accommodates same as all the Luminox lines, the Luminox Light Technology. This technical innovation relies on tiny glass tubes, filled with gaseous tritium and phosphor, which provide an independent light source for the watches’ hands and hour markers, enabling them to be used in different situations that assume partial or complete absence of light.


       The timepieces feature robust titanium cases, measuring 43 mm in diameter, which incorporate design features inspired by the jet’s aerodynamic silhouette, within the bezel, the bracelet’s central links, and the crown- a stylized engine of the Raptor. Furthermore, the timepieces feature screwed down case-back, personalized with an engraving of the F-22 Raptor, and ensure a remarkable 200-meters water resistance.

       The aircraft-inspired design of the timepieces is carried into the watches’ grey, patterned dials, which also mimic the F-22 raptor’s instrumental panel’s appearance, and which are completed by luminescent hour indices and hands. The watches also feature chronograph counters, located at 3, 6, respectively at 9 o’clock, a day aperture, located beneath the 12 o’clock and a double date window, at 6 o’clock.

       Furthermore, the watches belonging to the bold, F-22 Raptor 9200 Series are equipped with high-precision Ronda Quartz Chronograph movements and embrace the wrist with a stylish black leather strap or a masculine metallic bracelet. As far as the price tag goes, we can only say that the timepieces of this line are the optimal diving timekeeping companions, attractive for their accessible prices of approximately $950.00.
