Bangalore,March 08, 2019: This year, Luminox is proud to introduce new restyled models in the F-22 Raptor Chronograph series featuring solid titanium cases and slide rule bezels. Inspired by the legendary stealth fighter, these Swiss Made chronographs are great looking and extremely rugged, built to fly in the F-22 Raptor or just to fly through life.
The F-22 Raptor from Lockheed Martin is the most advanced fighter jet ever built. The Raptor’s combination of stealth, aerodynamic performance and situational awareness gives the aircraft unprecedented air combat capabilities, especially in today’s long range warfare. “The jet itself is the state-of-the-art stealth fighter jet that does the heavy lifting for the U.S. Military, employed extensively in our current military operations,” says Luminox Founder, Barry Cohen.
“We’re very excited about our new F-22 series from the Lockheed Martin Collection because it represents a new direction in both styling and the manufacture of the watch for Luminox,” Cohen details. “This newest iteration of the F-22 Raptor relies on more traditional and readily accepted styling cues that will render it highly saleable. We picked up certain elements of the jet itself in the watch components. The case work on these is also superior to its predecessor with small touches like chamfered edges that mix polished with satin-brushed surfaces beautifully. We expect the consumer will respond favorably to all these improvements.”
Luminox has partnered with Lockheed Martin for the last 16 years to bring aviation and watch enthusiasts a series of creative timepieces inspired by the most remarkable strategic aircraft in aviation history. The design of the Luminox F-22 Raptor Chronograph incorporates elements of this cutting-edge fighter plane: the crown shape is taken from the tail cone and the top view of the bracelet mimics the top view of the jet, all functional angles, while the case back features an engraving of the F-22 Raptor from above.
Built of solid titanium, a material that is both stronger and much lighter than steel, the new 44mm Swiss Made chronographs boast a utilitarian slide rule bezel, perfect for the calculations a pilot has to make while on a mission (e.g. conversions, fuel consumption, air speed and distance calculations and more). The F-22 Raptor Chronographs are incredibly legible, easy to read at a glance in the day or in total darkness — thanks to Luminox’s mastery of luminosity. These F-22 Raptor Chronographs are always visible, boasting self-powered luminosity that guarantees that these watches will be illuminated constantly for up to 25 years.
