California-based Luminox has returned with tactical watches made in collaboration with ICE-SAR (Icelandic Search and Rescue Association).
ICE-SAR is a national rescue organization comprising accident prevention divisions that can be placed in environments such as volcanic eruptions, avalanches, shipwrecks or giant storms. To meet the needs of its searchers in the field, a set of Arctic 1200 stainless steel models have been created to withstand harsh weather conditions.
As well as water resistant, the 46mm watch is also shock-resistant and radiant. At the face of the watch are open pointers that were made in a nod to carabiners used by the searchers. Red highlights line the second-hand, dial, Luminox logo, ICE-SAR’s logo, which frames the date window as well as subtle coordinates at the center, denoting the organization’s headquarters in Reykjavik.
Sapphire crystal and anti-glare coating cover the front, and the watch runs on a Ronda quartz movement powered by a lithium-ion battery. The watches come in four colorways of navy, stainless steel, white and monochrome.
The ICE-SAR x Luminox Arctic 1200 Series is currently available at Luminox stores worldwide.
