If you have even a passing interest in affordable tool or dive watches, there's a healthy chance that Luminox's original Navy SEAL watch has long been on your radar. It quickly gained traction with both military types and civilians upon its debut in 1992, spawning countless successor models and variations.
In continuing its partnership with the Navy SEAL Foundation (NSF), which provides health, welfare, education programs and more to Naval Special Warfare community members, Luminox has designed a new timepiece that recalls that original quartz-powered model, which it's dubbed the Navy SEAL 3002.NSF. Featuring a "Bay Gray" dial, bright white Arabic indices, blue and gold tritium tubes (the official colors of the Foundation) and an ultralight Carbonox casing, the watch has been blown up somewhat to 43mm but is largely reminiscent of the original.
A stainless steel case back features the Foundation's logo, while a carbon-reinforced unidirectional dive bezel, 200m of water resistance and a scratch-resistant mineral crystal makes for a highly utilitarian design. A black rubber dive strap with stainless steel buckle rounds out the feature set.
The second release in a series of watches celebrating the partnership with the Navy SEAL Foundation, the Navy SEAL 3002.NSF is available online and at select Luminox retailers for $395.
