Survival of the fittest: Bear Grylls and Luminox have created some tough timepieces

Maverick survivalist, TV host and ex-British special forces soldier Bear Grylls has teamed up with Californian-based watchmaker Luminox to create the ultimate range of tough and ready timepieces.

Fuck Bear Grylls. He used to sport a Tissot T-Touch in his so-called "adventures".
I always marvelled at how difficult it was for him to traverse raging rivers and climb stone obstacles when it seemed so easy for his camera crew to do it first with full gear. And he used cheap Gerber products which nornally wouldn't hold up on a back yard camping expedition. But he made a ton of money by marketing that stuff.

Bear who?

Another early metal Luminox, the Ultimate Field Commander. Have had this one since 2002 and just recently put in just its 3rd battery. I know Ive posted this here before so I apologize if you are tired of seeing it but maybe some havent. Still looks new but most of the tubes are pretty dim. They were never blazers to begin with though.

Very well made, fit and finish and heavy. I really dislike the plastic/fiber ones of today. Sorry I let a few other metal ones escape.

Bear Grylls is no Les Stroud.
