For Baselword 2018 last year, Luminox unveiled a slew of heavy-duty watches that ranged from its military-geared Navy Seal 3580 to Leatherback Turtle series. This time around, the California-based watch label has returned with a concise capsule of tactical watches made in collaboration with ICE-SAR (Icelandic Search and Rescue Association).

ICE-SAR is a national rescue organization comprised of accident prevention divisions that may be placed in environments such as volcanic eruptions, avalanches, shipwrecks or giant storms. To meet the needs of its searchers in the field, a set of Arctic 1200 stainless steel models have been devised to withstand these harsh weather conditions.

Apart from being water resistant, the timepiece is also shock-resistant and radiant. At the face of the watch are open pointers that were made as a nod to carabiners used by the searchers. Red highlights line the second-hand, dial, Luminox logo, ICE-SAR’s logo, which frames the date window as well as subtle coordinates at the center, denoting the organization’s headquarters in Reykjavik. Sapphire crystal and anti-glare coating cover the front, while a Ronda quartz movement and lithium-ion battery powers the watch. The watches come in four colorways of navy, stainless steel, white and monochrome.

The ICE-SAR x Luminox Arctic 1200 Series is currently available at Luminox stores worldwide.
