The new Luminox BlackOut SEAL Blackout watch replica combines rugged military styling with tritium lighting and really low price. Made of carbon-reinforced polymer, the case is so light that sometimes you forget that you actually wear a watch on your wrist.
The watch, which belongs to the 3050 EVO Navy SEAL collection, is presented in a usual for the Luminox timepieces 44 mm rugged, completely black case.
Like all mens fake Luminox watches, this one uses a set of tritium tubes on its hour indexes, as well as on hour, minute and second hands. There is also an extra tube on its unidirectional rotating bezel located precisely at 12 o’clock.
Available at an official price of $295 and equipped with a Swiss quartz movement, the Luminox BlackOut SEAL is one of the best affordable military watches on the market.
Luckily, due to the composite’s natural strength, you can afford yourself such a luxury without a risk of seriously damaging your watch. Even the mineral glass that covers the BlackOut’s face is made of an extra-hard material highly resistant to bumps and scratches (you should still bear in mind that this is not a bullet-proof glass: you CAN put a particularly nasty scratch on the crystal, if you buy this watch as beater and treat it as such.)
Compared to the usual Superluminova or some other luminous paints of similar chemical composition, the LLT tubes not only grow brighter (by at least an order of magnitude,) but also tend to last longer without losing its properties. Also, while Superluminova compounds need to be “recharged” every four or five hours, the radioactive tritium tubes usually glow for decades.

UPDATE: Here is a short video of a guy actually wearing the watch on his (‘skinny’ as he puts it) wrist. You can see that the watch is by no means small. However if you prefer the M65 field jacket to an Armani suit, the size of the Swiss-made Luminox copy watch will probably be not an issue here.
