While I imagine many, if not all, of our readers are familiar with Lum-Tec watches, they’re a brand we’ve never quite had the chance to do a hands-on review with in the past. That is, until social media lived up to its name, helped build that connection, and here we are today, with a review of the Lum-Tec RR3.
For those who did not ever live in Michigan, that title might take a little explaining. Well, to simplify it a bit, it’s a state road designation (IE, M-14), and for some reason that free association happened when I was taking a look at what the Lum-Tec M82 has to offer.
Lum-Tec is, in all likelihood, a brand that really needs no introduction to our readers. Their own watches have no shortage of popularity, and the Ohio-based company has been assembling quite a few of your favorite micro brands over the last few years. Just recently, we received word of something CGA (also known for the Minuteman Watches and some interesting pocket knives) to help out with a charity.
As I mentioned in yesterday’s article, we’re in a bit of a golden period with solar-powered watches. Sure, they’ve been around for quite some time, but there are just a number of them popping up on my radar lately. One of the brightest students to arrive at my desk lately was the Lum-Tec Vortex D5.
Recently, Lum-Tec sent out information on their new models for 2022. While there are four lines being introduced (or updated), there are two that I want to focus in on today – their solar line, and their Combat B line.
We here at WWR like to focus on a wide variety of watches, and we certainly enjoy when we get to showcase something that is built in our neck of the woods. One brand we have not focused on as much, for whatever reason, is Ohio-based Lum-Tec. They just recently announced their new-for-2016 models, and there was one in particular that caught my eye – the Lum-Tec Combat B33 GMT.
