It seems appropriate to start a review of a Lum-Tec with a picture of their namesake.

This is the Lum-Tec 300M-1, introduced in 2013 and available in 40 or 45mm versions, in either brushed stainless or PVD treatment.

The upmarket-ification of “America’s son” watchmaker LUM-TEC may continue in full force. Some of you have expressed sadness that the brand is producing many timepieces outside of their original pricing a few years ago. It is true that the mean price for LUM-TEC watches is going up. It also true that LUM-TEC quality and watch […]
It was only a matter of time until LUM-TEC created a diver watch, and I couldn’t be happier about the result (that will be released late next year).
