RECON POINT MAN
The Swiss-made Point Man watch and future watch introductions in the RECON Series address the needs of military personnel for analog watches that can also be used as simple and efficient navigation tools on the ground. As a special feature the Point Man watch can be used to determine bearings whenever the sun is visible, and it also offers a tachymeter scaled to measure walking speeds. The graduated turning bezel and the contrast-color countdown quadrant of the dial can be used to time maneuvers. The bezel's compass rose helps to establish the wearer's position. The antireflective sapphire crystal is highly scratch resistant.
Luminox RECON Series – Instructions
The watch as a sun compass
In a survival situation it is possible to check your direction using an analog watch, whenever
you can see the sun.
In the Northern Hemisphere: point the hour hand of your watch at the sun. Halfway the
shortest distance between the hour hand and the 12 o’clock mark is south.
In the Southern Hemisphere: point the 12 o’clock mark on your watch dial at the sun. Halfway
the shortest distance between the 12 o’clock mark and the hour hand is north
Walking Speed Scale
Using a RECON series watch, you can calculate the approximate average walking/hiking
speed in an hour. This calculation is based on a distance of 50 m / 164 ft. As the average step
length of a person varies as a function of his height, it is recommended that you measure how
many steps you personally need to walk 50 m/164 ft, prior to beginning your calculation.
General Comment: One step is approximately 75 cm or 2 1/2 feet
Knowing how many steps you need to cover 50 m / 164 ft, start counting
your steps when the second hand is on 12 o’clock.
With the last step when you have covered the distance of 50 m / 164 ft
read on the second hand on the walking Speed scale how fast you are
walking in an hour (km/h or mph).
For example: If you need 30 seconds to cover 50 m / 164 ft, your average
approximately walking speed is 6 km/h or 3.7 mph.
If you are walking/hiking in a group, the calculation should always be based on the slowest
Disclaimer: The walking speed scale is an approximate system to measure walking/ -
hiking speed. Conditions such as personal fitness, terrain, weather conditions and other factors
can drastically affect the walking/hiking speed of a person. Therefore, Luminox cannot be
held responsible in any way for the use or misuse of the walking scale, and any and all liabilities
resulting from such use.
