Delivery status updated soon…

Sorry I know that I have been remiss in keeping the delivery schedule updated. The new work schedule has been very demanding and in combination with the fact that we are closing our 2010 books its been as hectic as usual here.

Date dialed Kingstons have been shipping for last 3 weeks now. I will update the figures later this week. I will be working tomorrow to get at batch of 50 non-date Kingston out to Switzerland for assembly by the end of this week.

The Field Trip – The Navy Yard

1

Philadelphia Navy Yard - Movie Prop Sale. Once a thriving US Navy base the Navy Yard is undergoing a transformation and now serves as the headquarters to a number of companies including Urban Outfitters.

2

Some movie prop maps. I was going through them to see if we can find any props of our own for photo shoots.

3

I was wearing a Mk II LRRP GMT with the soon to be released 48-click bezel on the field trip

4

I am wearing the HRV version with a Maratac NATO strap on my pencil like 6 inch wrist..

5

Some old looking jars :D

6

This is a picture of me a week before a much overdue haircut.

7

The item in the center is a pastry mold that you can still find in Asian supermarkets.

8

This is some sort of animal thing with saddle. If you know the movie you already know what this is since this is a sequel.

9

These were hilarious. These skeletons actually are sold in a retail box.

10

You can see the hanger doors in the back of the shot and all of the costumes from the production.

11

We found some good stuff at the sale that we will be featuring in our up coming ads and photos.

12

Spies need shuttle buses too!...but only from 8 am to 2 pm.

13

The decomissioned USS Forrestal. A historic ship that unfortunately is destined to become an artificial offshore reef.

14

USS Forrestal: This ship suffered a historic fire on the aft section during a combat tour in Vietnam.

15

To the right the USS John F. Kennedy. I actually visited this ship during a NYC Fleet week more than a decade ago. Sad to see it decomissioned but it still retains its majesty.

Kingston Parts Kit link sent!

The e-mail has gone out with the link for the parts kit. If you are eligible for the parts kit and have not received the e-mail please contact us through the Order Status Portal. If you have already submitted your parts kit order via the ticket system or via e-mail you can dis-regard the e-mail.

Kingston Parts Kit Update

We completed an audit of the parts kit situation and determined that we only contacted the customers in the first 100 deliveries, which excluded some Plankowners.

We will be sending out an e-mail with an ordering link later this afternoon for the remaining customers that need to submit their selections for the parts kit.

Back on the online in a day or so….

I have been installing new software and hardware at the shop and at home to improve our flexibility and efficiency. We have also been converting our work flow to a new schedule to coincide with the software we are using to manage watch builds and deliveries. Updates to the running projects will also be posted soon.

Aside from stopping all work for about 48 hours to safeguard our computers and inventory, the hurricane, for us, was surprisingly uneventful. Our thoughts are with those that weren’t as lucky as we were.
