Luminox Men's Watch 1881.BO

By the way, what can you comment about Luminox watches - I have found this Luminox Men's Watch model 1881.BO, it looks like the price and design is ok.
Are there some better options or alternatives in this price range?

Luminox Atacama

I can't comment too much really other than to say I like the design and it seems solid and well made with good attention to detail. My only concern is that the screw down crown feels a little wobbly when unscrewed for adjustment. This was a Christmas present so I've only had it for a couple of weeks.

The tritium works really well- it's great to be able to tell the time instantly when I wake up without fumbling for a phone or light switch and then blinding myself. The 1881 looks like a nice watch; I picked the Atacama for good visibility day and night as I fly as well as ride....

Traser P5900 Type 3 Military model. Traser is where the Luminox brand gets its watches.

Maybe thats why He is called RicochetRider. Bullets just bounce off his watch. Thats one bad MF in my book.
