Luminox Recon Point Man 45mm

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

Luminox, recently introduced the first watch in its all-new Recon Series. Designed in collaboration with Andrea Micheli, a former Swiss Army Military Security NCO, journalist specializing in military affairs and shooting instructor, the Recon series is intended to meet the requests from professional military personnel for an analog watch that can also be used as a simple, but efficient ground navigation tool.

The Recon Point Man watch feature a black carbon-reinforced polycarbonate case, a contrast-color countdown quadrant of the dial that can be used to time maneuvers, a dive timer unidirectional ratcheting bezel with a compass rose, highly scratch resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coatings and of course the always visible self-powered illumination found in all Luminox watches. The watch is powered by the precise Swiss Made Ronda quartz movement. It is water resistance to 200 meters, 20 ATM and features a 50 month battery life. Additionally, it is packaged in a tactical PALS compatible sunglass case.

There are two versions. One is metric and the other English. The watch features a special “Walking Speed” scale on the dial to calculate your approximate average walking/hiking speed per hour. This calculation is based on a distance of 50 m / 164 ft and works very simply:

You take a pace count. Determine a course of 50 m / 164 ft and start counting your steps when Mickey’s second hand is on 12 o’clock. At the end of the 50 m / 164 ft you can read the second hand on the concentric walking speed scale to determine how fast you are walking in an hour (km/h or mph depending on the model).
