I like H3 watches in general not only Luminox. personally I think there is no better illumination system for an analog watch, not even remotely. I got myself a KHS Navigator MKII about two months ago...
...and it is in my opinion one of the best analog watches I ever had - the legibility under every light condition is absolutely stunning, so is the timekeeping - just about 1,5 seconds gain(+) since DST off.
Mine is 7 or so years old, and other than battery and crystal replacement (I'm not dainty w/ my watches), it's been flawless. I've even taken it diving a few times to <50ft with no problems, and it's only a 100M rated watch. Hey, I wanted to see what would happen...
The "trasers" are just the cat's behind, which is why I wear the Luminox 99% of the time.
I had one for about 3 years, was recently stolen along with my G-300 when my house was broken into, It was OK, loved the lume, but not worth the $175.00 that I paid IMHO. BTW mine was the basic "plastic" one, don't remember the mod #
I'm sorry your Luminox was stolen :-( will you get a new one someday? well, I have seen some models and the series I like the most is the 3000-3400 Black Hawk stealth models...they rock:-! but the F-16 models are also nice. Here in Venezuela there's a shop where you can buy Luminox for $100 or more...I'll let you know if I get one because I cant afford now many things...:think: what would you buy if you were me, a Luminox, a Protrek PRG-80 or an Ipod?
I like the newer versions, the EVO line I think it's called. Bigger case (about 45mm without crown I think), sapphire crystal, 10yr battery. Not usually a fan of numbers on a watch face but there are ways around that.
an Ipod, a Luminox or a Pro-Trek? I would get the Pro-trek, hands down. as great as a H3 watch is, but it can never keep up with all those great functions a digital watch (especially a Pro-Trek) offers you. and the Ipod can't save you when you get lost and need to find out in which direction you have to go....;-)
+1 on the Marathons. I have an M16-II and a TSAR, both loved ones. I had a Luminox Navy Seal Series II, but I returned it soon after because I didn't like it (Luminox marketing primarily, the watch was ok)
