Timely Deal; The Luminox Black Carbon Sentry Watch Is 60% Off

Budget-friendly and built like a tank, the Luminox Sentry was just spotted on sale (today only) on eBay, cutting its price of entry down to $109.99. These carbon-polyurethane composite cases have proven to be extremely durable as well as lightweight, and the use of Tritium tubes instead of more conventional luminous material for its indices and hands means you’ll have a clear view of the time even if your watch has not recently been exposed to sunlight. The current offer includes both the fully blacked out stealth model, as well as the black dial with contrasting (and highly legible) indices and hands.
Swiss quartz-powered Luminox models generally deliver good value to begin with, but at just over $100 this thing is tough to beat. The 43mm diver-meets-field watch features a screw-down crown and caseback, giving the piece a water resistance rating of 100m (plenty for a daily-wear tool watch). It also features a unidirectional 60 minute timing bezel with a good crisp action to it. At 43mm its by no means the largest in the Luminox catalog, and though it’ll wear a bit chunky, the fact that the piece weighs a featherlight 60 grams makes it that much more approachable for all wrist sizes.
