Luminox watch company started in 1989 by founder Barry Cohen. He was
already in the watch business when he notice that there was something missing
with the watches to make them easier to read in the dark. He heard about a unique
Swiss self-powered illumination system and he realized that this would be what
the watches need. He got in touch with the owner of the illumination company
and with their help he developed a new brand of watches that would have this
unique illumination system called Luminox Light Technology. That is when Luminox
watches were born, the rest is history.
