I'm looking into getting a Luminox but the glow seems to be pretty weak (the salesman tells me they're much brighter)
Does anyone ever seen a Luminox glow at night and can compare to a regular new Seikoi diver ?


Thanks

The watch store surprised me with the Lume tubes are only warrantied for 3 years and watch for 1 or 2 (I can't remember). So with a warranty that short how can they say its good for 25 years?
I'm having mixed feelings...

What watch store? iirc Luminox guarantees their trit tube watches to stay the same brightness for 10 years then slowly dissipate after-wards... going on to say (this is what they used to claim they were recently bought out) they would last up to 20+ years. This might have changed in the last 2 years, but this is what they used to claim. I was into Luminox in the mid 90's when people knew very little about them. They had a very poor marketing team/plan and customer support was zero nil nada back then.

I was in Dallas last week and in the outlet mall one of the watches stores.. I guess the guy there didn't know much and/or I don't much much about new watches and how warranties are applied, in fact in the Luminox website they say you need to buy from a distributor for the warranty to be effective so I guess ebay is out of the question, my daily watches are ~1968 Accutrons that I didn't buy new as I wasn't in this planet yet. Now that I think... I have never bought a new watch!


And just to keep things interesting here's the culprit:
