Case Summary:

Lumondi, Inc. is settling a class action about certain models of its Luminox watches, which the complaint alleged were advertised as designed for military service members, scuba divers, first responders, athletes and “rugged outdoorsmen” who want “extreme performance.” The complaint claimed that the inside of the watch crystal fogs when the watch is exposed to a significant temperature decrease to below around 40 degrees Fahrenheit, or when it is exposed to temperatures above around 90 degrees Fahrenheit, and that the fogging persists beyond twenty minutes after the watch is returned to room temperature.

If your watch is no longer covered by its original warranty, your extended warranty will begin on the Effective Date of the settlement and end one year later. (2) Replacement watch benefit: If you make two qualifying warranty claims under your Extended Warranty, if the warranty service is unsuccessful, you will be entitled to receive a new replacement Luminox Watch, of the same model and color as the original watch. If the same model and color watch is not available, Lumondi will provide you with a substantially comparable watch.
