LUMINOX Deep Dive 1520 Series 44MM Automatic Men's Watch XS.1523Luminox watches
The Luminox Deep Dive collection has been tried and tested like none other. Scott Cassell, a counter-terrorism operative & underwater explorer/filmmaker, has done quite a bit of the testing himself. The Deep Dive series of watches from Luminox are made in cooperation with Scott Cassell, founder of Sea Wolves and Underwater Voyager Project, non-profit organizations focused on the health of our oceans.
Safe up to 500 meters, this dive watch features a large 44mm case. The luminescent hands & hour markers using Luminox patented technology allow the watch to glow brightly for up to 25 years. The blue uni-directional rotating bezel is visible in all conditions. Scott Cassell knows all too well how important it is to be able to read your watch for precise timings when diving underwater so the bezel features large, clearly visible markings. Similarly, a crown lock & protector ensures a tight seal all the time, protecting you and your watch.
Scott Cassell’s experience as an operative showed him that a watches battery dying mid-mission just wasn’t’ acceptable, so an automatic movement has been employed for the Luminox Deep Dive 1520 series. A self-winding, automatic Swiss movement within the watch ensures that it keeps ticking; no battery required.

I enjoy this piece. The attention to detail is much greater than my 9 year old Luminox Special Ops 8403 (blue dial quartz). Much greater. I decided to give Luminox the benefit of the doubt and try their Automatic (Sellita SW220-1movement). From my research, it is a reliable movement. After one week it was +4 seconds. It has since settled down to +6 seconds total which is quite acceptable, as I am very pleased. The vastness of the Dial area which is uncluttered reminds me of the ocean. I did not notice this at first, as it hit my head a week later. Was this part of the design? I'll never know. You really have to see this in person or see some really good photos online. The aluminum numbering in the bezel is really quite pleasing. The blue dial is something to see, its quite good. Enough about that. It is big, but oddly fits my wrist quite well. My wrist measures 7-7-1/2" depending on if its a gym day or not (also diet, carbs, etc). I am 6'2' and a bit over 210lbs. I mention this to give you an idea of how it may fit you. I replaced the band with an Isofrane Blue 24mm. I liked the OEM band but I can do better. I plan to wear this for ten years. We'll see.
