I kinda like it. Hate to admit it even though don't show the love for mercedes hands, and Rollie look.
The gold accents is what caught my eye.

Yes, the gold accents make this model attractive....width size? The minimalist bezel numbers looks good too, less distracting from the dial.

My chinese homage is getting lots of wear time, strangely enough, despite the mercedes hands which I usually don't like.....! the accuracy of the chinese DG2813 astounds me!

if you compare the Tsunami pricing which is about the same....
Of course, the lack of options with the MKII....I guess it is a buyer's decision.....
There is always Al Archer designed models!!!!

I will be loving it when my serial #27 Kingston is on my wrist.

I'm a Plank2 and I opted for the Full kit of spares which includes everything but the movement and caseback.

My config will be Gilt hands, gilt dial, no date and the red triangle bezel, BG9 lume.

My spare will be opposite of above.


Orders were placed early 2009 which has been a long wait. As of a few days ago a person that opts to sell their reserve Kingston depending on Plank # will get you at least 2X your money.

I really liking it. If only the bezel numbers were gold too.
I'm really feeling, heard about this one, but never checked it out until now.
I may be on the lookout for a used one in a year or two maybe.
Congrats, hope you get yours soon.
Dave.
