This year, Luminox is introducing new restyled models in the F-22 Raptor Chronograph series featuring solid titanium cases and slide rule bezels. Inspired by the legendary stealth fighter, these Swiss Made chronographs are great looking and extremely rugged, built to fly in the F-22 Raptor or just to fly through life.
The F-22 Raptor can soar 10 miles high and fly at supersonic speeds for extended periods of time, thanks to its ground-breaking “supercruise” technology, which propels the jet to speeds greater than Mach 1.5 without the use of afterburners. In addition, the Raptor has built-in stealth technology so it virtually undetectable by radar.
The Air Force described the F-22 as “unmatched by any known or projected fighter,” while the National Aeronautic Association awarded Lockheed Martin the 2006 Collier Trophy, American aviation’s most prestigious award, for “designing, testing and operating the revolutionary F-22 Raptor, providing total air dominance for America’s future.”
Luminox has partnered with Lockheed Martin for the last 16 years to bring aviation and watch enthusiasts a series of creative timepieces inspired by the most remarkable strategic aircraft in aviation history. The design of the Luminox F-22 Raptor Chronograph incorporates elements of this cutting-edge fighter plane: the crown shape is taken from the tail cone and the top view of the bracelet mimics the top view of the jet, all functional angles, while the case back features an engraving of the F-22 Raptor from above.
The watches are available in four models; a black dial version available on a solid link titanium bracelet, or a black or brown leather strap; and a white dial model with a gray webbing strap.
