In the vast panoply of watch brands, it is inevitable that there are some brands that we simply have never covered, whatever the reason may be. Luminox is one of those brands. For me, I was always aware of them (I still remember seeing the workbench ads in Popular Mechanics), but we just never made contact. Well, that is, until recently. I had run across a particular model (as it turns, a rather old one), and went chasing things down to get some solid contacts with the brand. As it were, that watch was no longer available, but of course, there was plenty of others in the catalog to have a look at. And that, dear reader, is how we arrived at today, with my review of the Luminox 1924.

Thank you for checking in with our weekly feature, Watching the Web, where we take a break from reviews to recap the watch articles that we have found interesting from around the web, and highlight the articles that you have made popular on our own site. This week, I wanted to point you toward some detective work on a fake Patek Philippe, the launch of the Ophion brand of watches, and a Ulysse Nardin Marine Diver for fans of the America’s Cup. From our own site, the reviews of the Steinhart Ocean Titanium 500 and the Luminox SXC PC Carbon GMT, as well as the notice of a discount on Xetum watches were our top posts.

So, I’m ready to book my flight into space and all I need is a watch and $100k. I know what you’re thinking. I need the Omega Speedmaster, a Breitling Navitimer or even a Russian Poljot. (I also need the cash, but let’s focus on watches.) Well, Luminox wants you to buy their SXC PC Carbon GMT. Luminox and XCOR Space Expeditions teamed up to create a family of “Space” watches. Luminox wants to sell you the watch; XCOR wants to sell you a ride into space.
