All of us have been excited about the newly released 300M series Lum-Tec watches. No one has been more enthusiastic than I. However, my first love Lum-Tec was a combat series watch, the B3. There is something special about the simple design of the dial, the coin edge bezel and the great lume of the combat series watches that make them special to me. These watches are a nice size and weight for my wrist. This Combat B12 really speaks to me. Cheers, Bill P.
