Originating in the 1880's, the field watch gained popularity during the First World War due to soldier's demands for reliable and portable timepieces. Trench fighting required quick, accurate timing so watches had to be small enough to be worn on the wrist. The battlefield environment also created a need for exceptionally water and shock resistant watches, and the Field watch quickly evolved a distinctive style – rugged and utilitarian with virtually no embellishment.
Luminox offers a variety of field models in quartz and automatic rounding out their collection of the ultimate LAND series. The best-selling pieces are the Atacama Field series which blend the functionality of a modern Swiss Made timepiece with an updated retro look. The ultimate incarnation of the Field watch, it is rugged and reliable, truly iconic in design and a terrific daily wear timepiece, suitable for the field, the office or the boardroom. The Atacamas feature a solid stainless steel case, screw-down crown for added water resistance, and tritium-tubes for continuous illumination.
The unique Luminox Light Technology ensure at-a-glance visibility – in fact, the technology Luminox watches provide a constant glow 24/7, no matter what the conditions are, for up to 25 years. Most other watches use luminescent paint that has to be charged by a light source and fades very quickly, or a “push to light” system, where you push a button for battery-driven illumination.
