    Traser or Luminox?

    HI guys, i'm planing to purchase a military style watch however i'm stuck between the Luminox 3001 BO or the Traser P6508 Shadow. Anyone have experiences with either watches?

    Love my Luminox 3101 as a beater. These are the same thing IMO.

    If you really want a military style watch, get something easy to read or a G-shock.

    The Luminox looks to have a matching black crown and date wheel. The tritium tubes also look a bit longer.

    Whilst the Traser is about $50 cheaper, I think the extra features on the Luminox make it worth the premium.

    I have two luminox 3050 series and a traser 6500 series. The traser has proved itself to be very tough over the years (my friend has one too that is sooo beat up through his manual labour job but still keeps going with no issues!). Luminox's also both have take some knocks with no problems. Both brands basically the same really.
