The 3850 Series "Slow is Smooth, Smooth is Fast" has this famous SEAL mantra engraved on the dial to remind you of this concept every time you look at your watch. From challenges on land and sea, to long days in the most extreme conditions, Navy SEALs are constantly being pushed to the limit, so it's vital to keep this mantra in mind to avoid making mistakes. Because for a Navy SEAL, a simple mistake can have serious consequences.
Beginning in 1992, the officer in charge of procurement for the Navy SEALs, Chief Nick North was given a unique mission: Cut through the darkness. The SEALs needed a wrist watch that was tough enough to withstand the most brutal conditions on earth, while also being designed in a way that allowed them to be used on night missions in the darkest corners of enemy territory. His search led him to Luminox, and a partnership with the world’s most elite force was born.
