The Commando Series from Luminox is designed to pay homage to military units all over the world. Developed with military and law enforcement expert Andrea Micheli - a former Swiss Army Military Security NCO, internationally recognized law enforcement/military specialized journalist and shooting instructor – the Commando Series meets the needs of active professional military and police personnel, as well as adventure lovers who want a reliable, versatile, and precise analog watch.
The Commando Raider combines all the details for which Luminox is famous – tough, luminous, extremely water resistant, highly legible – with a sand-colored dial, military style numbers and military time. The Raider adds a CARBONOX™ unidirectional countdown bezel with an integrated compass rose, in a light and extremely durable 46mm CARBONOX™ case.
SUPER LUMINOVA x COMMANDO
Super-LumiNova® - High Performance Phosphorescent Pigments - also called "photo-luminescent" or "afterglow" pigments, these are the most common used, non-radioactive and non-toxic alternative for illuminating markings on timepiece dials and hands in the dark.
Unlike tritium, SuperLuminova needs to be charged by light to give an afterglow, thus illuminating the face of a watch in the dark.
These pigments operate like a light battery. After sufficient activation by sunlight or artificial light, they glow in the dark for many hours. Larger markings guarantee full legibility for the whole night.
The COMMANDO collection needs to be exposed to daylight or artificial light for recharging the fluorescent material. On the other hand, Patented system (LLT) uses glass tubes filled with phosphor powder and tritium gas. This tubes glow permanently for up to 25 years with absolutely no charging necessary. Also, Super LumiNova's activation and subsequent light emission process can be repeated again and again, and the material does not suffer any ageing, while LLT loses intensity over the years.
