Goldenberg Schneider recently filed a class action lawsuit against Lumondi, dba Luminox Watch Company, in the United District Court for the Southern District of New York. Advertised as “The Official Watch of the Navy SEALs,” Lumondi markets Luminox watches to military service members, scuba divers, first responders, athletes and “rugged outdoorsmen” seeking “extreme performance” from their timepieces. However, the lawsuit alleges that Luminox watches contain a defect that causes their watch faces to fog when worn outdoors in either cold or hot temperatures. As a result of the fogging defect, Luminox watches exposed to outdoor temperatures below approximately 40 degrees Fahrenheit or above approximately 90 degrees Fahrenheit remain cloudy until the watches return to room temperature. Lumondi has acknowledged the fogging defect but shockingly defends it as being “normal.” The fog that forms underneath the watch face is not only unsightly but can also render the watches substantially unreadable.
