The Lum-Tec Bull 45 Chronograph features a 45 mm 316L stainless steel case coated in black PVD. It is a bullhead design, which means the crown and chronograph pushers are on the top of the case. The chronograph is slightly harder to operate than a traditional side-mounted configuration, however, this design prevents the crown of pushers from poking into your wrist. And, if it is in your hand the chronograph buttons are actually a bit easier to manipulate.

The dial features an instrument style layout. Protecting the dial is a thick sapphire crystal, with a double-sided anti-reflective coating. The watch is extremely legible in bright or dark conditions. The AR treatment removes glare in bright conditions and an 8-layer MDV® LUM-TEC GX luminous treatment makes the dial visible even in the most extreme low-light situations.

Inside, is a Japanese quartz OS10 chronograph movement (Lum-Tec also uses Swiss “ETA” mechanical movements in some of their models). The chronograph can display up to 11 hours/59 minutes/59 seconds. The case is treated with a brushed hard black PVD finish, which provides the kind of durability you would expect from a military-style instrument watch. The strap is made of top-grade rubber with a signature black PVD buckle. Water-resistance is 100 meters.

The retail price is $599.
