What's going on guys black scout survival and today we're gonna be doing a gear review it's been a minute since we've done one we're gonna talk about one of my favorite pieces of gear watches i'm a big watch fan have been for years and many that been following me over the years know that i'm a collector and just really love.
Watches i think it's a crucial piece of gear and you know having a good watchman you're gonna depend on obviously can help your survivability and military operations whatever that may be you know whatever your adventure scuba diver things like that you know watches play critical roles.
For many activities we do so today we'll be talking about the luminox commando raider this is a new watch that has just came out from luminox now i've been a luminox fan for quite some time during my time the marine corps my first uh like i guess expensive watch was a luminox and i i mean i wore it.
Everywhere where i went i'm jumping out of planes with it you know shooting with it the whole nine and it just held up well and just took the abuse and i carried it uh like for even years after i wore it worked for years after i got out and a good friend of mine um was leaving the country to.
Go back home and i gave it to him and hopefully he still has it so anyway but today when we talk about the commando raider it's a new watch part of their c series and i'm a really big fan it's it's developed for military use and you know uh waterborne operations things like that so we'll take a closer look at this and.
Tell you guys all about it so the commando series is nothing new to luminox but this is the commando raider this one was designed from a guy named andrea micelia former swiss army military security nco internationally recognized law enforcement military specialized journalist and shooting instructor.
It basically meets the commando meets the needs of adventure lovers and those who need a reliable versatile timepiece let's talk about the specs for a minute this watch is a 46 millimeter has a water resistance to 200 meters has a screw down crown there so that way you can make sure you keep the water out.
200 meters 600 feet and each watch is individually tested for that rating so you know you can trust it the movement is a swiss movement you see swiss here a ronda 515.24 which has a second time zone which is we'll talk about that in a second that red gmt hand.
The case is a carbon ox material which is super lightweight super durable um the watches i re previously reviewed and i'll put a link at the end here the bear grill series from luminox had the same type case and very rugged very durable this one has a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coatings so you don't.
Have to worry about getting this scratched up you know it's going to take a beating you know doing obviously military type operations 316 stainless steel crit screw down crown it's 14 millimeter height and 90 grams weight so we'll just kind of talk about some of.
The features of the dial you can see is a like a tan military tan uh look has the military kind of stenciled numerals there very large easy to see we've got the 24 hour markings on the inside of the dial there as well as on.
The outside and that will work for the gmt hand the gmt hand will track a secondary time zone so if you're traveling like military operations across the globe you can track.
A different time zone as well as a date so you got your complications here is a date function and the gmt hand now to set the gmt hand all you're going to do is is you can pull out and go clockwise and that'll change the date as you see there and then counterclockwise moves that gmt hand and.
So you can kind of set it to wherever you'd like or you can just keep it on 24 hour time if you'd like so then you can calculate 24 hour time other benefit of this watch is it has a countdown timer on the outside of the bezel so you can mark like let's say we're using this to do a countdown we.
Click this here now we have a 60 minute countdown you also notice the green bezel insert here which is a very much a commando color but it has a actual compass bezel here insert so that way you can.
Use this and we'll put it the link at the end of the video showing how to use an analog watch like this as a compass very easy very cool to have that feature this obviously has tritium in it we have orange on the 12 o'clock we have orange on the hands and then green on the other spot so that.
Way easy to to see what i really like about the back here is has this quick release strap here so you can see that little nub there to release the spring bar so you can change watch straps things like that this has the most comfortable strap that.
I've actually ever had on a watch this is amazing has a clasp here so you're not going to lose this when you take a watch off it's not going to just fall off your wrist so holds it in place this one you cut to size you see the little markings here where you can cut to size and then just move the pin to where you.
Need it this is like i said the most comfortable watch band that i've ever seen but a beautiful watch very rugged timepiece luminox you know never disappoints um you know pretty big profile on the wrist but because of that carbonox material it's very lightweight and just would be perfect for pretty much.
Any kind of adventure you can take it on all right guys so that is the luminox i'm like i said a big fan of it the tritium um you know obviously we use that in military uh lyncenic compasses we use it in in our pistol um sites and things like that treat them as a great tool because without any light it's going to glow no matter what so.
Anyhow guys was really excited to show you that watch there um very cool piece commando raider i think it definitely lives up to the name um pretty much will hit any kind of activity you can dual time zone so if you're traveling things like that military operations be perfect to keep you know your time back home.
Um as well as your local time zone so anyhow guys check out the link below um luminox is a very much hard use they've earned that reputation in the watch world so check them out in the link below and as always thanks for watching black scout survival
