The Swiss-made Point Man watch and future watch introductions in the RECON Series address the needs of military personnel for analog watches that can also be used as simple and efficient navigation tools on the ground. As a special feature the Point Man watch can be used to determine bearings whenever the sun is visible, and it also offers a tachymeter scaled to measure walking speeds. The graduated turning bezel and the contrast-color countdown quadrant of the dial can be used to time maneuvers. The bezel's compass rose helps to establish the wearer's position. The antireflective sapphire crystal is highly scratch resistant.
All watches in the RECON Series feature a second color countdown zone on the dial, a dive timing unidirectional ratcheting bezel, highly scratch resistant sapphire crystal with antireflective coatings, a walking speed scale (essentially a walking tachymeter!) Available with scales in either km/h or mph. All watches are packaged in a tactical MOLLE/PALS (a standard carry system used in the military that means (“MOdular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment”/“Pouch Attachment Ladder System”) compatible sunglass case.
The Luminox RECON Series was designed in collaboration with Andrea Micheli, a former Swiss Army Military Security NCO, an internationally recognized law enforcement/military specialized journalist and shooting instructor in order to meet the requests from professional military personnel for an analog watch that can be also used as a simple but efficient ground navigation tool.
