Luminox partnered with the Icelandic Association for Search And Rescue to develop the Luminox ICE-SAR Artic watches to celebrate the 90th anniversary of their association. Iceland’s all-volunteer force needed a watch to withstand the vicious arctic winds and volatile sub-zero winters, so Luminox delivered the perfect solution.
The ultra-lightweight watches in the series have Luminox Lighting Technology for unmatched night vision and are fitted with a ‘Carbonox’ casing to handle the harshest environments. In addition, all of the Luminox ICE-SAR Watches are 20 ATM water-resistant.
The watch dials have been sandblasted to pay tribute to the volcanic landscapes in Iceland and all three watch hands are designed after the carabiners that ICE-SAR rescuers use on every mission. On two of the watch models, the index at 12 is swapped with 112, which is the emergency telephone number in most European countries. These watches are built to last in the land of ice and fire.
