The notion of "necessity is the mother of invention" was at the root when Barry Cohen spearheaded his campaign to start the Luminox Watch Company. Back in 1989, he came across a Swiss-based technology which provided self-powered illumination. This technology would pay dividends in the watch industry, something Cohen already maintained an active role in. From there on in, Luminox also became providers for the US SEALs, as well as other segments of the military. Stüssy has teamed up with Luminox on this rare occasion to provide a special EVO Navy Seal Watch. Three different colors are available, orange yellow and white. Available now through Stüssy Direct with a price tag of $325 USD.
