The Point Man is the leader of that reconnaissance team. Certainly enough, there’s a need for specific tools for the Point Man, without which, the whole group might be subjected to navigational faults, choosing wrong targets or destinations and the price for such mistakes can go pretty high. However, the Luminox Land Recon Point Man 8820 Series A8821KM comes to rescue. It also lessens the burden of hauling around multiple instruments and provides all information considered important at the flick of a wrist. Crafted as a Modular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment or MOLLE, this Essential Gear’ timepiece is made to serve the military as much as the early morning jogger.
Luminox is the maker of ‘Essential Gear’ timepieces; instruments that are considered indispensable by many of the elite forces around the globe. This includes both military and law enforcement; the Point Man is the first Luminox Mens Watches in the all-new RECON Series of 2011, which, apart from its primary duty of telling time, also doubles up as a simple and efficient navigational tool on the ground.
The Point Man combines black carbon-reinforced polycarbonate (for the case material) with a black diver-styled, unidirectional bezel; following which, is a compass on a black aluminium ring and a black dial. Altogether, it is very much of a stealth look with high contrast markings; even the countdown quadrant on the dial. Together, they make for some excellent time-manoeuvring. An additional piece of info here: The compass not only helps to find the directions but also helps to establish the position of the wearer. On top of everything, there’s an antireflective sapphire crystal. It is scratch resistant and offers maximum clarity. Powered by a Ronda Mens Luminox Watches movement, we don’t need to speak of precision and reliability.
Among the special features, the tachymeter has been specially created to measure walking speeds. Rest of the tachymeters measure distances and driving speeds of 60 mph/kmph or higher; the Point Man introduces a new concept this way. The specially marked concentric tachymetric scales are useful to calculate average walking speeds; all you need to do is find out the time you need to walk down 50 meters/164 feet and then read the corresponding speed in mph/kmph.
Military operation do not occur under bright chandeliers, so luminosity is an essential factor that makes or breaks a field watch. Luminox Land Recon introduces Light Technology, which self-powers the illumination with micro gas tubes. These are mounted on the hands; on the markers and on the bezel, never ceasing even for once. And it will glow that way for the next 25 years.
