View Full Version : Luminox watches

I finally did it. I have been wearing the g-shock watches for years. I saw a buddy with a luminox and I got the "cool gear bug". This doesn't happen to me very often. Anyways, I bought the Luminox and am now back to wearing my faithful g-shock. The watch hasn't kept good time at all, would stop all the time and finally stopped working for good! I am sending it back to the manufacturer. I hope their service is better than their product. Just thought I'd warn you, stay clear and spend your money on something else. Live and learn I guess.

I wear a G-Shock myself and never take it off. It has treated me better than any watch I've had. Wear it hunting, farming,diving, every were. This new one has a ten year battery life to it, less if you use the light all the time. Supposed to have alittle solar panel built in it.

Not saying this is what it was but... a very close friend of mine bought a Luminox "new" off e-bay last summer. Got it, and had same issues you had. He sent it in and luminox called him and told him it was a fake/knockoff... not even close to their internals. They apologised and offered him a much discounted watch for his troubles according to him.
This also happened to another buddy of mine with an Emmerson knife. There are a lot of people out there having stuff made off shore and selling as the genuine article.
Never owned a Luminox wayyyyyy outa my price range. Hope it works out for you.

I knowingly bought a knockoff aimpoint M2 that had all aimpoints markings but not the quality or service life. It kills batteries monthly... but the price was right for what I used it for at the time, $50.00.

Got a luminox 2 years ago as a Christmas present. So far not a single hiccup. Love it!
