Iceland is a barren island located in the North Atlantic Ocean, known for being plagued for centuries with volatile arctic winds and freezing winters. The nation‘s constant exposure to the harsh forces of nature has sometimes meant that the ultimate sacrifice of life is either at land or sea. Widely known as “The Land of Fire and Ice”, Iceland is home to some of the largest glaciers in Europe, and to some of the world’s most active volcanoes. Iceland is also the land of light and darkness. Long summer days with near 24-hours of sunshine are offset by short winter days with only a few hours of daylight. The ICE-SAR roots are in the long and complex tug of war between man and nature. Avalanches, shipwrecks, storms, eruptions, earthquakes and sub-zero winters have forged a strong force of volunteers – Iceland is a country with no professional army - that dedicate their time to helping their fellow citizens, and a rapidly growing number of foreign visitors, at the moment of need.

Luminox watches are designed and produced to go where few people would think of taking a high-quality timepiece. The Icelandic Association for Search and Rescue (ICE-SAR) goes to just these places in their appointed duties. Celebrating its 90th year this year, ICE-SAR has named Luminox as its official partner. Luminox watches are now part of the essential gear for all 93 ICE-SAR teams.
