My Luminox Experience

First of all I'm not a Navy seal or in a Military and stuff. Im just a normal guy working on computers. Because when I first got the watch I was very exited with its luminous effects and with all the rugged, air force, navy and military branding that goes with it. 

Now after about 8 months of usage (not even daily use) this what happened. Let the pictures speak itself.



Luminox Back

Broken strap in so many ways... talking about navy use and military spec!

Luminox Return/Repair/Warranty Policy

"Luminox does NOT cover normal wear and tear, batteries, crystals, watch case, strap, bracelet, loss or theft" 

Hmm.. very disappointing broken in less than a year and they DO NOT cover the strap.. sigh!!! I guess I have to buy a new strap!  and so I went to Luminox service center and behold I meet a customer with the same problem with a broken strap and not only that they are out of stock (I think this is very common problem). The only thing they have is the velcro type strap (see picture below). So this is what I bought

.......... 3 months later

 it's broken, again!!!!!

But waitthere's more!

Luminox misaligned
Not just the strap! I give up on this watch.

It's 12 o'clock right? aren't those hands suppose to be on the same place? WOW it's misaligned. I have Timex, Casio, Guess, Swatch that I bought way cheaper the this lumisucks. Some are even 1/4 the price of this Luminox and none of this ever happend to any of my other watches that I have been beaten up for years.

I therefore conclude Luminox is not just overpriced but also using below standard materials. Cheaply made watch and If I could do it all over, I wouldn't buy this watch and will stay away from this Brand.
