Thanks for the warm welcome. =)

The USMC watches are all quartz. Prices start at just $95.00 and top out at just $195.00. The brands owner wanted to deliver a product worthy of the USMC image while keeping it within the reach of as many people as possible.

We do of course carry watches with mechanical watches which you can find in the Lum-Tec brand. Prices though are a whole lot higher than the USMC watches. The USMC watches are really our entry level brand with Luminox being our mid level brand. Our current top brand is Lum-Tec.

Best,

Thomas Carey

I have a luminox that needs a battery and pressure test, do you do that or do I still have to ship it to the Luminox service center?

If so, where is that?

Oh.....Welcome to the FTF!! Great to have you aboard!!

You will need to send that into the service center. For those that would consider taking their watch no matter what brand it is to any jeweler or battery swap place. Here is why you don't want to do that.

Those folks in many cases will not change the caseback seal, use a battery of the some quality or higher as the OEM, will not pressure test the watch to insure it is still water resistant after the battery is swapped. Lastly most will not then warrant their work which the Luminox service does for a 1 year period.

At times I am asked by people why they are getting fogging for example under their watch crystals. My first question is did you recently have your battery replaced? Guess what the answer is 99.9% of the time?

Some do get lucky and the old seal does it's job after the swap. But I often hear from people who state they are going through watch battery's every year when their original battery last several years. The reason is that in an effort to cut cost many shops are using batteries which are sub standard to say the least. Also those batteries are more likely to leak than a quality battery. When that happens your movement is toast.

On the watches I sell I tell folks that on a watch which does not have a chronograph, or alarm function. The original battery will last 3 to 5 years or more.

... I don't want to do that, because many years ago, I bought a Citizen ECO-Drive. The watch face is a solar panel... no batteries.
