Man I'm really digging lum-tec's all of a sudden, especially with the introduction of their combat series. Great modern military watch -- above my pay grade -- otherwise probably would've sprung for one.

Yep.

I'd like to see a pic of one of these on someone's wrist.

A scantily clad Jessica Biel would be good.

Can't help with the scantily clad Jessica Biel, I'd like to see that too.

Here it is on my wrist. This is the Super Combat so it is 45mm:

Love it. Do they come in smaller versions? For me, it'd be perfect watch at 40-42mm. On my 7.25" wrist 45mm feels like a pocket watch.

I purchased a lum tec this past December. Never had a watch bigger than 42 mm. The lum tec seems to wear smaller than it is. I usually don't notice I'm wearing it until I put on a coat or a button down shirt and it gets hung up on the sleeve. Watchtalkforums has a good lum tec page with plenty of wrist shots. I basically banned myself from the site so I wouldn't break the bank.

My comment is 'personal preference'--
Why would the designer give priority to a watch face numerals 5-55 without the traditional use of 1-12?


This design feature (above) would be useful if it had a rotation bezel.
Or
Am I missing something? shrug.

thanks to the post that explained the Royal Arrow.

Because for the military, planning, report, calculation and schedule are more based on the "minute past the hour" than the hour itself. Especially in aviation.
