There’s a lot of great watch makers out there, and they set up shop just about everywhere. The latest one we’ve stumbled upon is Lum-Tec – a brand of Mentor, Ohio-based Wiegand Custom Watch. This show-worthy brand has whole lineup of luxury – but not unaffordable watches – all handcrafted right here in the United States (which alone is enough to bump them to the top of our list) Their M72 Watch is a perfect example of their style.
The M72 is a a fresh, sharp take on a classic chronograph watch – a 44mm piece-of-art, fastened with 316L stainless steel case and screw down crown. A double diamond sealing system and Viton gasket help waterproof the watch down to 100 meters and 330 feet. A bead-blasted titanium carbide PVD hard coating gives the steel case a hard, protective finish and beautiful matte black finish. Under the anti-reflective sapphire crystal sits a quartz chronograph movement Japanese made Miyota OS20J movement that promises years of continuous, accurate timekeeping.
And finally, to ensure you can always read the time on that black watch face, even when it’s pitch black out, the hands and hours are coated with C3 SuperLuminova.
The M72 is actually one of Lum-Tec’s cheapest watches, but there’s no question that you’re getting a premium timepiece when you buy one of these bad boys. If you should ever have any problems, Lum-Tec will help you figure things out in no time; their dedication to service and quality extends to the whole organization, and you can even directly email the CEO himself to answer questions and get the fix you need.
