As the official partner of the Icelandic Association for Search and Rescue (ICE-SAR) Luminox is committed to creating watches that meet the needs of these intrepid public servants as they go about their daily duties – which can mean dealing with volcanic eruptions, avalanches, shipwrecks, mega storms and even more.
The ICE-SAR teams need a timepiece on which they can rely, which is why they chose Luminox as their official timepiece. With its rugged, shock resistant construction, robust water resistance and luminosity, Luminox certainly fits the bill. In addition to ice, heavy rains and strong winds, ICE-SAR also has to deal with limited daylight visibility as Iceland remains in partial or total darkness during several months in winter. In such conditions Luminox watches and their unique self-powered illumination system – providing constant glow for up to 25 years – truly become an essential gear to ICE-SAR teams in order to conduct their missions.
