Luminox Ice-Sar Arctic 1002
Luminox is famous for working with the world’s toughest and most dedicated professionals. The Arctic 1002 is Luminox’s latest chronograph creation. It venerates the exploits of the Icelandic Association for Search and Rescue or ICE-SAR. The organization’s teams of accident prevention and rescue professionals make them one of the world’s best. The Arctic 1002 is Luminox’s way of recognizing the invaluable contribution of the organization in ensuring safety in this part of the globe.
The ICE-SAR Arctic 1002 features Luminox iconic super-luminous technology. When Arctic conditions are at their harshest, visibility can be almost negligible. With the Luminox technology, you’re sure that you can still read the time on your wrist. This self-powered illumination retains its glow for up to a quarter of a century. Only the time markers and the hour and minute hands have this luminous material, however. The watch hands and the 12th hour come with orange light. The rest of the indices come with luminous green light tubes.
This Luminox watch also includes their signature CARBONOX technology as a framework for its casing and dial. You’d expect its case back to come with the same CARBONOX technology, but Luminox instead uses 316L stainless steel. You can always depend on the heavy-duty construction of the Arctic 1002 to withstand the harshest situations and environments.
The Arctic 1002 features the RONDA 515 HF 6 quartz movement. It’s not the automatic mechanical that you may aspire in a wristwatch. However, it can provide you with a more fluid motion compared to Japanese quartz movement. This Swiss-made chronograph watch has more oomph than any other timepiece that rolls out from the East.
The Luminox ICE-SAR Arctic 1002 is a wristwatch that venerates the heroism of the men and women of ICE-SAR. It is a chronographic masterpiece that is worth having in your next outdoor adventure.
