Before you buy consider that Jomashop is NOT an authorized dealer

Summary: First off I would like to say that I'm usually too lazy to write any reviews so this is actually the first on Amazon. However, I felt compelled to do so to share my thoughts on my current situation with the watch so you can understand the potential risks. The watch's exterior is very solid, the mineral face after 9 months of use is still in perfect condition. The case is durable and light-weight, and has held up well to my normal uses.
Summary: This watch is very lite and comfortable on the wrist. Very well made and easy to tell time in the dark. I wear this watch while hiking and find it to be much more comfortable than my Seiko diver watch.
Summary: I bought this watch because of the Luminox reputation, but was sadly disappointed. The same day I received it the second had got stuck on the minute hand and couldn't pass. This is definitely NOT a quality watch worth the $200+ I paid for it. Maybe Luminox still has some quality products, but it's not the 8813! If you are looking for a rugged, high-quality field watch don't buy this one.
Summary: I bought this watch for my husband because it was advertised as being so durable - worn by Navy Seals and military etc. He wore it for a little over a week and the crystal cracked. Trying to get it repaired is a real pain. No authorized dealers for Luminox could replace the crystal for us because they said Luminox will not send them the parts they require to do repairs.
Summary: I was amazed by this watch, It is solid and well build...in fact it is light weight and suits well. the light glowing very well in night and it is very much visible. I am still able to see the timing from few feet away.
Summary: This watch is really awesome, it is so light that you almost forget that you are wearing it. The size of the bezel and strap looks great even with small or big wrist.. This toy really suit men who do not want wrist load during adventures, sport activities or just a normal day at home. I fully recommend this toy 100%...buy it ..you'll like it.
