This Is the Watch Brand that Navy SEALs Prefer for Night Missions
Luminox A.N.U. series

The special ops force test-drove a variety of brands before settling on one.

Luminox has become the official licensee of the Navy SEALs after partnering with the special operations force for the last 20-plus years, the watchmaker announced.

In 2013, Luminox collaborated with active-duty and retired SEALs to develop a new series of watches with upgraded features. This partnership resulted in the A.N.U. (Authorized for Navy Use) series pictured here, which features a black PVD-plated stainless steel case with screw crown and case back, sapphire crystal, multi-jewel Swiss quartz movement, and a 10-year lithium battery.

“As a research, development, test and evaluation officer for the Navy SEALs, I was asked to find a dependable watch for night missions. After testing a variety of brands in the most arduous conditions, Luminox was the only one still functioning at the end of the evaluation,” says Nick North, Navy SEAL (Ret.).
