Do navy seals wear Luminox?
No, not since 1994, when we tested the watch out and found that it flooded after a couple weeks of diving as shallow as 25 feet. The watch is too bright for tactical operations, and is analog, where most of our guys where a digital watch because of its more precise timing. The most common issued watches are Suunto and G-Shock, but it is largely up to personal preference.

The U.S. Navy's SEA, AIR, LAND (SEAL. SEALs are the elite Naval Special Operations unit of the US Navy. The U.S. Navy's SEA, AIR, LAND (SEAL) teams are one of the most respect…ed commando forces in the world - they are often cited as the most elite, flexible and highly trained Naval Commando force. When it comes to Maritime Special Operations and Anti / Counter-Terror operations the SEALs are hard to beat. SEALs are trained to operate in small units of one or two men up to platoon strength of sixteen. However, they work best in squads of eight or fewer. Most missions are clandestine in nature, planned in exacting detail and executed with precision and swiftness. During peacetime, SEALs find themselves with the same rigorous training as during war. Training remains strict to enforce the belief that the more you sweat in peacetime, the less you will bleed in war.Navy SEAL training is designed to be tough - reputedly the toughest military training in the world. Why so? SEALs are modern day warriors who volunteer to fight as commandos, doing the dirtiest, toughest and most miserable jobs you could imagine - jobs that no one else in the military wants to even look at.These missions such as reconnoitering an enemy beach from the surf zone, taking down a moving vessel at sea, laying awake in ambush for three days and nights up to your neck in mud - all require a stamina and threshold for pain so enormous that the average man wouldn't attempt it. Most can only imagine what a SEAL endures- and then you could multiply it by ten to come close. There is no fame, fortune or public recognition for what a SEAL commando accomplishes - most of it is classified. Quiet, professional job satisfaction is the norm for the seasoned frogman. HOOOYAHH. Answer . SEAL in an acronym, standing for SE a, A ir and L and. SEALs are special forces operators in the US Navy. What sets them apart from other special operations units in the US military is their ability to conduct missions in and from the water. They are directly decended from the Underwater Demolition Teams of WWII, who cleared hostile beaches of mines and obstacles in preperation for an amphibious invasion. The Navy SEALs were etablished in 1961 under the direction of President John F. Kennedy.. The navy SEALS is a special ops team specicalizing in small wars. They are trained for quick and silent deaths. Their main mission in stealth.
unconventional warfare, recon, foreign internal defense, personnel recovery, counterterrorism, and some other classified things
It depends.. Usually a combination of boots, running shoes, fatigues, athletic shorts and a t-shirt
You apply and are accepted to go to school. And then you go through BUDS training. If you survive BUDS, then you are assigned to a SEAL Team. Once there you may earn your SEAL… designation. I dont want to knock this answer because it is right but it's a little more complicated. First you have to get into the navy. Then you have to pass a Physical Screening Test (PST) which is for all special forces and you have to get the score for SEALs which are very elevated. After that you get a contract for Special Warefare. Then you must pass a PST each month and improve on your previous scores and never fail one or they kick you out. Next is bootcamp followed by pre-BUD/S and more difficult PSTs. And THEN you go to BUD/S. If you make it through BUD/S you go on to Parachute school and all the other special training. Then is Seal Qualification which is where you train for a while until you are assigned to a team. Im actually in this process right now and it is HARD. But so worth it. Good luck if this is what you want to do.
The replacement battery for the Luminox Navy Seals watch is an SR57. Equivalent battery models are the LR57, SR927, LR927, SR927W, GR927, AG7, SG7, and generic Enercell number…s 195/395/399. It measures 9.4 mm diameter x 2.6 mm thick, and generates 1.5 V. I have replaced my own Luminox Navy Seals watch battery with no problems. Luminox says that the warranty is voided if you don't have the work done by a certified dealer, but my watch is so old that I don't care about that. Procedure for replacing the Luminox Navy Seals watch battery: Work in good light. Using a flip-down magnifier with a headband is helpful but not essential unless you don't have sharp close-up vision. Use a jeweler's Philips-style screwdriver to remove the four back-plate screws. Put them aside where they can't be lost. As you lift the back plate, be careful not to damage or lose the delicate rubber-gasket O-ring that rests beneath it; leave it in its groove if possible. When removing the battery itself, be careful of the thin, round perforated metal ring that rests on the upper, outer edge of the battery. Note the orientation of the battery; the side that is completely flat, with markings on it, must face upward (--toward-- you) when it rests inside the watch. After putting the new battery into place, and when replacing the back plate, be sure that the O-ring gasket lies flat and undistorted in its recessed groove as you delicately press the plate down. The battery itself, with its overlying metal ring, should seat down smoothly, without resistance, as you press the back-plate into position. It is advisable to just slightly tighten the screws one-by-one as all four are put in place. When all four are in place, tighten them down completely. Snug them firmly but don't over-tighten them. Again, it's not hard to replace the battery in this watch. Just be careful and methodical as you proceed.
Um, yes, Navy SEALs exist. Haha uh yes they in fact do exist, my dad is a former navy seal
Navy SEALs or SEa Air and Land teams are called this because of there ability to operate in any environment. There training is very extensive so they are qualified divers, par…achutist and land warfare specialist.
They wear gloves all round on missions. Not in bud/s- they just expect people to put up with the cold.
No beret has yet been manufactured that could possibly cover such a vast empty space.
Navy seals wear a variety of helmets from mich2000, ibh, mich full cut to opscore helmets. Most common are the mich varieties
First and foremost, it is a movie. Second, Navy SEALs do not always wear kevlar armor. It depends on the mission and the mission objectives. Sometimes the additional weight …of a kevlar vest would be prohibitive.

Of course they do. From the lighter side: But occasionally, they 'go commando'...

Before, then U.S. Navy Seals, were who they are, they were classified UDT - or - Underwater Demolition Team. I don't know when they officially became Seals. JFK authorized th…e formation of the SEALS.
There are several places one can purchase a Luminox Navy Seal watch. These retailers include Amazon, NY Watch Store, Watch Co, and Tactical Distributors.

Probably... Do you? Does that random person you saw on the street the other day? It's a subjective question where I would say its a personal choice by each individual SEAL. Ju…st like regular civilians

The hats that Navy SEALs wear at BUDs are called just that, hats.
