The ICE-SAR Arctic 1001 uses a 46mm CARBONOX™ case. CARBONOX™ is an extremely strong and durable carbon-based material that is exclusively available from us. Much lighter than steel, hypoallergenic and extremely durable and resistant. The ICE SAR logo, with its four-circle elements, served as inspiration for the collection's bezel, while the shape of the hour, minute and second hands resembles the carabiners used by rescuers on their missions.
Luminox is proud to be working with the ICE-SAR, a historic Search and Rescue operation, and to be equipping them with ICE-SAR Arctic series watches. All wrist watch designs are inspired by Iceland or equipment of the Search and Rescue Team.
The professional teams of the ICE-SAR are trained to go anywhere on Iceland, known as “the Land of Fire and Ice.” And on Iceland, that really means what it says – rescuers routinely answer calls during avalanches, shipwrecks, storms, eruptions, earthquakes, sub-zero winters and much more.
