| Merchant: Allen Edmonds 44 mm Navy Seal Colormark Watch by Luminox. Like many other American success stories, Luminox came from a forward-thinking individual realizing a need in the market and meeting it. Barry Cohen, a watch industry veteran, came across a Swiss self-powered illumination system and knew that it would make watches more visible and easier to read in low or no light situations. He asked his friend Richard Timbo if he would like to join him. Luminox was born in 1989 (Lumi is Latin for light while Nox is Latin for night) , driven by a commitment to offer cutting-edge luminescence and readability in its line of high-performance sports watches. Known as Essential Gear for outstanding men and elite forces and organizations, due to its Always Visible self-powered illumination technology that glows for up to 25 years, Luminox watches enable time to be read all the time, even in complete darkness. The Luminox Navy SEAL watch is the timepiece that made Luminox famous. The officer in charge of procurement for the Navy SEALs, Nick North, was asked to seek a more dependable watch for night missions and found the solution at a trade show where he discovered Luminox. He worked with Cohen to develop a watch specifically for them and the Navy SEAL watch was born.
