Luminox Special Operations Challenge - The 3050 Navy SEAL Colormark (3053.SOC.SET) and the 4220 ANU (4223.SOC.SET).

Luminox started its relationship with the Navy SEAL teams over 20 years ago when SEALs first discovered the unique self-powered illumination technology found in Luminox watches, and requested a watch series be made for them. Since that first meeting Luminox has continuously updated its line of watches to meet the demanding requirements of this community of warriors as well as the needs of other elite forces around the world. The Navy SEAL Colormark series is the evolution of that original series of timepieces.
Luminox Spec Ops Challenge 3053.SOC.SET: 44mm, carbon reinforced polycarbonate case and case back, tempered scratch resistant mineral crystal, water resistant to 200 meters, signature black PU strap, and Luminox self-powered illumination. Swiss Made.
In 2013 Luminox had the opportunity to refine one of its watches to specifically address the needs of maritime commandos with the direct collaboration of SEALs, both active duty and retired.
This partnership resulted in the A.N.U. (Authorized for Navy Use) series featuring a stainless steel case, with screw crown and case back, sapphire crystal, multi-jewel Swiss quartz movement and 10 year lithium battery.
Luminox Spec Ops Challenge 4223.SOC.SET: 45mm, black PVD plated stainless steel case, screw down crown & case back, unidirectional ratcheting bezel, antireflective sapphire crystal, water resistant to 200 meters, signature PU strap and Luminox self-powered illumination. Swiss Made.
Luminox is partnering with retired Navy SEALs to offer the Special Operations Challenge – the chance for civilians to train like a SEAL for a day. The Special Operations Challenge watches commemorate this enduring relationship with the SEALs.
The L.S.O.C. sets are sold in two different sets one featuring the 3050 Navy SEAL Colormark (3053.SOC.SET) and the 4220 ANU (4223.SOC.SET). Each watch is sold as a set with an interchangeable webbing textile strap and changing tool.
A percentage of the proceeds of the sales of these watches will go to the Navy SEAL Foundation.
