Luminox LWAC-B-Travel-Alarm-Clock

The Luminox Blackbird 9000 Series

I've really been intrigued by Luminox watches for some time, and I've been been looking for just the right one to add to my collection. With the new Luminox Blackbird 9000 series, and specifically the 9032 chronograph (pictured at right), I may have finally found just the right one.
