Lum-tec Combat B16

Get ready for battle with the Lum-Tec Combat B16! this is a rugged PVD coated steel watch with excellent lume. We love itīs military feel, itīs minute detailing and robust construction. The watch design is modern and straight forward, no unnecessary clutter, just good quality materials and components put together. A solid and exceptionally well-made watch.
 
We had seen Lum-Tec watches on the internet, but when we first unboxed the Combat B16 and held it, we could immediately tell that the photos weīd seen didnīt do the watch justice at all. The Combat B16 comes in a fancy rugged wooden box, it definitely protects it during shipping, inside are: warranty card that states the date of purchase, serial number of the watch, a authenticity certificate and user manual.
 
The first feeling on the wrist was awesome, the rubber strap is extremely comfortable while being sturdy at the same time. The strap fits tightly against the case, leaving no gaps. The B16 is powered by a Miyota Japan 9015 28,800BPH automatic movement, it is accurate and very silent, unlike many automatic watches. The steel case measures 43 mm x 12 mm  making it the perfect size for an average manīs wrist, it is PVD coated and has a thick sapphire crystal with anti-glare layer on both sides and a master finishing touch, a Lum-Tec trademark screw-down-crown, helping to ensure 660 ft water-resistance.
 
The B16 features of course excellent lume(the brand name gives it away maybe?), every Lum-Tec watch features their exclusive MDV Technology™ (Maximum Darkness Visibility). This is a special 8 layer application of ultra bright glowing Super-Luminova photo-luminescent material. MDV hands and dials are extremely visible in all light conditions. The result, are some of the brightest watch dials and hands in the industry. Trust us, this thing lights up as a torch in the dark without looking grainy.
 
The watch comes with 3 straps, a rubber strap and two nato straps, military green and black. Allowing you to decide witch fits the character of the watch better.
 
Overall, this is one hell of a great watch, sporty, extremely rugged and a very good value for your money. Designed for someone that wants a no-nonsense, good quality watch that does exactly what watches are expected to do...tell the time!
