    Nice watch SHOOTER. I quit wearing watches when I started carrying a cell phone at work. Now that I am retired, I don't have to worry much about time and don't really need a cell phone. No one calls me anyway except for the wife, in laws or kids and they usually have something for me to do.

    LUMINOX 3000 Series

    Good luck with any type of warranty work if needed. I had one and my wife also had one. Both watches within 2 years had the same problem. The hands fell off. Was told they would repair them at my cost. Warranty did not cover them. Cost of repair was going to be 198.00 per watch plus labor and shipping.

    Sorry to hear about your bad luck Terry...

    I've had mine for going on 13 years now...

    all I've had to do was replace a battery every few years....

    Wow, that's bad luck, never had a problem in over ten years with one and five with the other. I could buy a new one for what they are asking for repair.

    That's about it with mine too.

    They told me it happened because the watch was being worn out side at 40+ below and then going inside. the metal on the hands could not withstand constant change. They are a great watch and i loved mine. The watch did not like Alaska winters. Not many things do:eek:

    Wow...geez...no wonder the things snapped !!

    Not very many watches can stand up to that temperature range...

    So, did you find a watch that does survive Alaska @ -40 below zero ?!

    yes i did find one. Casio G-Shock solor powered It is only rated for 200m under water. That is okay cause i had to give up diving because of cancer problems, :mad: 40- is not even starting to get cold, Last winter we had a cold snap that lasted two months right around 60 below. Think i will enjoy a warm Maine winter this year.

    Thanks! The middle one was given to me by my wife on our wedding day and likely will be the only one to get a new heart.
