Luminox Tony Kanaan Limited Edition Chronograph

The 2013 special Limited Edition of the Tony Kanaan Racing Chronograph was designed for and by champion Indy Car race driver, Tony Kanaan. It's cutting-edge design concept showcases an asymmetrical 3-layer case highlighted with Tony's own racing colors and a racing stripe style genuine leather strap.  It's a beautiful watch that really needs to be seen in order to appreciate it.  The level of detail is superb.  Everything from the push buttons to the carbon fiber inserts on the side of the watch are finished in the finest detail.  This watch is breath taking from every angle and very limited.  More so with Tony Kanaan winning the Indy 500 this year.  Collectors and fans alike are all trying to get a hold of this amazing timepiece and supplies are running low.  Fortunately we do have a few of this fantastic watch still in stock and ready to ship.  Normally I don't do blog entries to promote limited editing watch since they sell out so quickly but every once in a while a watch is so cool it deserves the extra attention.  This is one of those times.

For those of you into specs and features, we have compiled a list of the key features below:

  • Limited edition to 999 pieces worldwide
  • Ronda 5050.B Swiss quartz movement
  • White dial with black, yellow and green accents

Little things bring the Tony Kanaan Racing Chronograph (Luminox model 1146) to a level above the other watches offered currently on the market.  The ceramic bezel, sapphire crystal, carbon fiber inserts and yellow and green tritium tubes all come together to make something special.  The custom fitted leather strap and dial work together to make one integrated design carried throughout the watch and the asymetrical case sets everything off with just the right angles.

But honestly, talking about this watch and looking at pictures is not enough.  It really is one of those watches that has to be seen to be appreciated.  Pictures just don't do it justice.  If you are interested, give us a call TOLL FREE at 1-888-243-6329 to check availability and pricing.  We could sell out at any moment so call first if you can.  You can also order online from us here.  (Gem of the Day is an Authorized Luminox Dealer, selling only brand new, factory fresh Luminox watches.)
