The Iconic Turtle-Shaped, Leatherback Sea Turtle Collection Expands
Luminox is excited to announce the expansion of the Leatherback SEA Turtle Collection, one of their most popular watch lines to date. This collection is part of the nautical themed SEA series, and is geared towards a new set of consumers within the outdoor market.
With the Leatherback SEA Turtle collection, launched in 2017, Luminox had introduced a lower-priced luxury watch line. In 2018, the collection continues to be available at an affordable price and will be offered in three brand new rugged colorways featuring hues of orange, cream, hunter-green and of course, black. One model will be offered with a black PU band, while the other two will feature a consumer-favorite: the black NATO webbing strap.
The shape of the classic Luminox design has a protected crown balanced by an opposite outcropping that has often been compared to the shape of a turtle, hence the name of the collection. In fact, the champion of sea turtles, the leatherback, inspired the Leatherback Sea Turtle collection. These turtles grow the largest, dive the deepest, and travel the farthest of all Sea Turtles, qualities that align directly with consumers who wear this watch.
The slightly lower price point of the Leatherback Sea Turtle collection makes it accessible to a broader consumer base, but it still has all of the important components that make a Luminox watch lightweight, tough and reliable. These features include a case constructed with CARBONOX™ an incredibly strong Carbon Compound material, 10ATM water resistance, scratch resistant mineral glass crystal and a stainless steel double-gasket protected crown.
Luminox Light Technology provides unmatched night visibility through a self-powered illumination system that lasts up to 25 years without requiring an exterior light source or the push of a button. Traditionally, Luminox watches feature Tritium tubes on every numeral on the watch dial but the new Leatherback SEA Turtle collection provides the same 24/7 visibility that Luminox consumers depend upon while using half as many gas tubes. Rather than all twelve numerals, the SEA Turtle watches have six tubes marking 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 & 12, and the bezel illumination at the 12 marker is SuperLumiNova.
As a differentiator in the market, the Leatherback SEA Turtle collection is extremely tough, lightweight and retails at a very reasonable and affordable price.
