Kingston: Delivery Update

At this point we have finished orders through and including C48 and 72. At this pace we estimate that all of the date dialed Kingstons will be shipped by October 23rd. At that point we will be able to begin the shipment of last batch of the pre-order non-date Kingstons (both the BG W9 and C3 versions), which also represents the last of the Kingston pre-orders due.

I am also currently working on shipping the General Order Kingstons for assembly in October. We are currently preparing the parts.

Delivery update….

a quick note as its the end of another 17 hour work day. I have finished up to number 69 and C43. C40 was delayed but now on schedule to ship on Saturday the 17th.

The next batch of Kingstons have arrived in Switzerland for assembly. No word yet on the turnaround time. This assembly batch includes the last 50 units for the pre-order customers.

Again sorry for the delay between the new work schedule which has me on a very short leash and the tax return, I was also invited/asked to write another article for the 2012 edition of the Wristwatch Annual. Unfortunately no guarantee that the article will be published but was honored to have been asked again.

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.

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.
