Ohio-based Lüm-Tec is a bit of a rarity, assembling all of its timepieces in America, but its latest Combat Field Watch proves just how impressive US assembly can be. Aside from making its goods in the US, Lüm-Tec also distinguishes itself in the watch market by focusing primarily on military-inspired watches. This focus gives Lüm-Tec watches unique aesthetics combined with rugged materials and the brand's proprietary luminescence technology. All of these features are boldly on display in the brand's latest Combat Field Series, which combines the appearance of the Lüm-Tec Combat B series with vintage-inspired detailing.
The movement on the Combat Field Series is powered by a Swiss-made Sellita SW200 automatic and is protected by a shock-absorbing mounting system and Viton gaskets. In terms of aesthetics, the Combat Field Series features a double-curved sapphire crystal, a pre-patinaed dial, luminescent face, and onion-styled crown and sword hands. The watch also touts a 100-meter depth rating and is available in a titanium carbide PVD hard coating or bead-blasted stainless steel.
