The Luminox Field Day Date 1820 Watch

This watch won’t make you Batman, but he’d probably wear one!

I just love all black watches. There’s something about taking the functionality away from something that just makes it cool. The phantom watches that have come in vogue lately showcase an understatement in timepieces without all the hipster attitude.



The problem purists have with black on black watches is that they are very hard to read even in the most illuminated of circumstances. And I must admit, this is not the kind of watch you can just glance at quickly and know the time. You have to let your eyes adjust to the total darkness that these watches inspire. However, they are not impossible to read due to some pretty cool little features:

While this is a black-on-black watch, there are different textures used for the dial and the hour indicators so that they are still visible. The best part is that because this is a Luminox watch, there are tritium gas tubes for the hands and along the hour markers for illumination. Not only do these tubes offer glowing visibility at night, but in the daytime, they offer nicely contrasting points (white against black) to enhance legibility. The sloped flange ring around the dial is a nice touch that helps the dial look its best.

The Swiss quartz movement inside of the watch offers the time with a day and date indicator. These windows are designed to be at different points on the dial. I am glad that Luminox went with my advice to put them on black discs with white characters. While I am not a huge fan of “open” date windows, this one doesn’t bother me too much. The dial is large enough for the date and day of the week windows not to obstruct anything.

The United States military loves watches like these as they blend in well with camoflague, yet the micro gas lights can be seen incredibly well without having to turn on a watch sourced power supply thereby giving up your position. Imagine trying to blend in at your black tie event, “I’m making a move to the punchbowl, over!”

You are buying way more than a luxury watch when you grab the Luminox Field Day Date 1820 watch 1879.BO, you are getting your street cred to join that local ninja group along with it.
