SkunkWorks' unique design and logo

The XA.6442.H.SET model features a unique design that pays homage to Skunk Works. The Skunk Works logo, printed using Super-Luminova material, is located at 6 o'clock and is also engraved on the watch's caseback. The 44 mm diameter envelope is made of the innovative CARBONOX material, ensuring the durability of the model. Thanks to the use of CARBONOX material, the envelope is not only resistant to mechanical damage, but is also extremely lightweight, increasing the comfort of the wearer and ensuring the low weight of the watch (70g.). The distinctive, fluorescent Super-Luminova elements guarantee excellent legibility even in the most difficult lighting conditions. Subtle details, such as precise engravings and carefully selected materials, demonstrate the brand's attention to the highest quality of workmanship. This model combines cutting-edge technology with an aesthetic inspired by legendary aviation designs, creating a unique timepiece ideal for true aviation enthusiasts.

Technical parameters at the highest level

The latest Luminox model offers impressive technical performance that is sure to satisfy even the most demanding users. Equipped with a high-precision Swiss mechanism with a date display, it guarantees the reliability and accuracy characteristic of watches bearing the prestigious Swiss Made designation. This mechanism ensures not only exceptional timekeeping precision, but also many years of service and minimal maintenance requirements. It is worth mentioning that the watch is also distinguished by its shock resistance, making it an ideal choice for active people, those involved in extreme sports or those working in harsh environments.

Thanks to the 16 tritium capsules placed on the indexes, hands and bezel, the model provides exceptional visibility in the dark. Tritium technology, combined with Super-Luminova material, guarantees long-lasting, bright illumination that does not require an external light source for activation. All these features make the latest Luminox model not only a reliable measuring device, but also a stylish accessory that combines advanced technology and exceptional design.

Unsurpassed water resistance of 20 ATM

The Luminox XA.6442.H.SET is distinguished by its water resistance of 20 ATM, which corresponds to a depth of up to 200 metres. Such a specification makes the watch an ideal choice for divers and water sports enthusiasts who require their watches to be reliable in harsh conditions.
