Luminox makes toughness attainable.

Luminox Leatherback Sea Turtle 0300
When it comes to luminosity and durability, few rival the chops of Luminox. Known for its pioneering use of self-powered illumination technology and a strong affiliation with the US Navy SEALs, Luminox is a firm favourite for outdoor enthusiasts and sporty types. It’s probably safe to say that’s largely because their watches are tough as nails or, in this case, a turtle’s shell.

The latest addition to the nautical SEA series sees Luminox expanding their offerings to a new set of customers with a lower price point and size that’s friendlier to those with slender wrists. The Leatherback Sea Turtle 0300 Series comes in a refurbished 39mm offering whilst maintaining all the defining characteristics that Luminox is known for.

The name of the collection is drawn from the classic Luminox design, which features the protected crown balanced by an opposite outcropping that resembles the shape of a turtle.

Available in black (top), full black (below) and full white, the watch is lightweight, tough and reliable. It features an incredibly strong carbon compound case, an updated typeface on the dial, hardened mineral glass (8 on the Mohs Hardness scale) and a stainless steel double-gasket protected crown as well as the famed Luminox Light Technology that provides constant illumination 24/7 up to 25 years. It’s also water-resistant to 100m.

With this version, Luminox has tweaked the dial slightly, placing Tritium tubes only at the even numbers on the dial. Traditionally, the watches feature Tritium tubes at every index. We’re also seeing the signature strap of the Sea Turtle collection now featuring a loop-lock that really makes things much more comfortable for the wrist.

Despite the rugged nature of Luminox timepieces, especially those of the SEA series collection, the lightweight nature of the Leatherback Sea Turtle, smaller size and lower price point definitely makes it a great offering for those who want a watch that can take on almost any environment.
