LUMI.NOX is an American success story. There was a time when the industry was dominated fashion watches – 1989 took the two employees Richard Timbo and Barry Cohen decided a new product to develop, with the long-term the market may exist. When they encounter a unique stream independent lighting system from Switzerland met, they recognized the capabilities of this innovative lighting. Thus one could watch in low light conditions or even in complete darkness to read. So they began to develop wristwatches that with the unique lighting system (the so-called Luminox Light Technology, LLT) are equipped, and the LUMI.NOX watch brand was born. It was and is the name of program and combines the Latin words “volume” for light and “nox” night. And the logo plays with the contrasts of light and darkness in the form of white lettering on a black background and vice versa. Through the red is also part of the Swiss flag tribute gezollt.
The Swiss watch entrepreneur André and Ronnie Bernheim, participate in May 2006, replacing founding member Richard Timbo, on the American watch company LUMI.NOX. Thanks to the Swiss Logistics Award 2003 excellent just-in-time production of the Mondaine factory in Solothurn Biberist the clocks are specialized outdoor retailers and shops reliable supplies.
The evolving market for active sportsmen and women called for corresponding models, and so designed a diving watch. At a trade show, they were assisted by a procurement officer in the U.S. Navy SEALs to speak. This explained to them why their technology lighting for night operations so important. Early 1994, the new diving watch, after many months of design to design SEALs presented. Later LUMI.NOX brought this clock as original Navy SEAL Taucheruhr on the American market.
Another happy coincidence played a major role in the inexorable development of the brand LUMI.NOX: One day a relative called Edwards Air Force Base to make them his appreciation for their watches tell. He told them that the stealth bomber pilots of the F-117 NighthawkTM watches LUMI.NOX deceptive and very enthusiastic about the technology were. Then he asked them watches specially for the Air Force to design. Some months later, they presented their first of the aviation-inspired collection, which is the beginning of a close business relationship with Lockheed Martin ®, the company that developed the F-117 NighthawkTM manufactured, represented.
The models are now in more than 30 countries around the world. LUMI.NOX is an American company with a Swiss lighting technology in Switzerland made watches in the world sells.
