After the success of the Scott Cassel Deep Dive 1520 series, Luminox is proud to present the 1550 series, the precision lightweight CARBONOX™ extension of the Deep Dive collection. All four models in the 1550 series come in 46mm Carbonox™ cases. Carbonox™ is a carbon-based material exclusive to Luminox. 6 times lighter than steel, hypoallergenic and extremely durable and resistant, it also features a very interesting gray texture on the surface of the case. The Deep Dive 1550 models are water resistant to 300 meters, no mean feat when working in carbon. Special gaskets and case design mean that these watches can dive deep and continue performing flawlessly.
All the Scott Cassel Deep Dive 1550 series watches feature a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, a screw down crown with the Luminox patented Bezel Locking System and crown protector, a stainless steel screw down case back and a genuine rubber strap.
The patented Luminox Bezel Locking System prevents the bezel from changing position. A conventional unidirectional bezel is a requirement for a true dive watch, but if a non-locking bezel is knocked, it can move and indicate less time available under water. All divers want to stay down as long as they safely can, and need as much time as they can get for deep diving. This Bezel Locking System ensures that the time the divers set with their turning bezel will stay set, by simply locking the special system, which doubles as a crown protector, into position.
As with all Luminox watches, the Deep Dive 1550 series uses the proprietary Luminox Lighting Technology (LLT), which guarantees unlimited night vision 24 hours a day for up to 25 years through their use of tritium tubes. Unlike other luminosity systems, which depend on exterior light sources to charge luminous paint or a pushbutton to illuminate the watch, the luminosity is built right into Luminox watches, ensuring that you will always be able to see the time, no matter the conditions. The new 1550 series watches are powered by a super-reliable Ronda quartz movement with an eight-year lithium battery.
Scott Cassell has been an expert military operative, a counter-terrorism dive instructor for special operations, a sniper, a consultant in the anti-piracy fight, a combat doctor for special operations, and MedEvac flight instructor in the US Army National Guard. Cassell is also a consummate adventurer, someone who embraces danger and relies on Luminox timepieces as part of his Essential Gear.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the Deep Dive 1550 series will benefit two non-for-profit organizations from Scott Cassel, aiming to “Save the Sea.”
