Luminox makes great watches! They are every bit as good as those watches that cost many times more. I have learned from experience that they are extremely durable and reliable and especially practical when you need to be able to read your watch face at night or in complete darkness. The XS.3252 watch I recently purchase is the 3rd Luminox I have owned over more decades than I choose to admit. I prefer its fully adjustable stainless steel bracelet and of course the protected stem is an absolute must on any watch subject to any kind of rigorous activity. For value and quality in a man's sports watch, Luminox is the logical choice.
