Luminox F-117 Nighthawk™ GMT 6420 Series

Like the U.S. Navy SEALS, military pilots flying the F-117 Nighthawk™ Stealth jets out of Edwards Air Force Base approached Luminox to make watches specifically for them, utilizing the brand’s unique design and the self-powered illumination system. The first Lockheed Martin project was the USAF F-117 Nighthawk™ Stealth series and 16 years later Luminox has announced the redesigned F-117 Nighthawk™ GMT 6420 series paying homage to one of the most remarkable strategic fighter jets in aviation history.
With its refined design, the Luminox F-117 Nighthawk series references the sleek charcoal aerodynamic contours of the aircraft, from the diamond–shaped faceted bezel to the angular links of the bracelet.
The 44mm case sports a sandblasted finish to lend a matte look reminiscent of the jet’s surface. The Arabic numerals on the dial and bezel feature a stencil font from the cockpit in an ice blue SuperLuminova for a glow-in-the-dark effect. Along with the LLTs (Luminox Light Technology) in contrasting vivid yellow, the watch has unmatched night visibility in all conditions and a singular stealth aesthetic.
The Nighthawk boasts a multi-jewel Swiss Quartz movement with GMT function for dual time zones with anti-reflective sapphire crystal, and comes in two models; the signature solid link bracelet with gun-metal PVD-plating (6422) and, for those who prefer a strap, a leather-backed Kevlar band (6421).
