The Luminox Deep Dive Automatics are one of the top quality Luminox you can find. They’re heavy duty, utility dive watches, that overall have a cool look and great functionality. The piece in review today is the Luminox Deep Dive Automatic A.1513.
The 44mm 316L stainless steel case is over 17mm thick, a complete brushed finish. While the watch is large, it wears great on the wrist and has an awesome look. This model has a metallic blue dial and bezel that really make it stand out (there is also a more subtle matte black A.1512).
The Deep Divers are individually tested, rated to 500 meters, and ISO 6425 passed. There is an automatic helium escape valve on the left side of the case and a uni-directional rotating bezel that has a patent pending lock, which is actually the crown guard on the right side of the case. If the crown guard is open, you can adjust the bezel. If the crown guard is locked into place, the bezel is locked also.
These Luminox come on a 22mm polyurethane strap, with a 3 tooth buckle that assures its security. The overall weight of the watch is 158g, making it a fairly heavy case with the light weight strap. Even in this situation, the watch still feels well balanced and wraps well around the wrist.
The movement utilized for the Deep Dive is a Swiss Sellita SW-200-1. This self-winding calibre has 28,800 bhp, 26 jewels and about a 38 hour power reserve. Certainly a reliable movement for such a utility watch.
As with all Luminox, the Tritium gas tubes are implemented for night view. On this model however, the Tritium tubes are accompanied by super luminova to make for an even more legible watch in the dark! The Tritium is equipted to glow for 25 years continuously, never needing light to make it glow. While the luminova does rely on light, but it still makes for a great glow in dark conditions.
The retail on this piece is $2,200, but can be purchased directly on AZ Fine Time for $1,980 HERE. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 1-800-486-3996.
