The Kingsley MKI

This is, admittedly, a wee bit of a teaser. For those of you unaware (and for my sins, I am in this group), there is a pretty groovy watch brand quietly working away in Birmingham, England. Craig and Rebecca Struthers are the pair behind a refreshing alternative to what the Media Mavens of Watch Town are so anxious to collectively jam down your throats. 

For your consideration, the Kingsley MKI -

Struthers doesn't exactly make "off the peg" watches. Every watch is made to order and allows for personal customization options.

If I were picking, it would be the one pictured above.
I will be following up with the folks at Struthers to try and get a deeper bit of background on what they are up to.  

As regards the Kingsley MKI (in rose gold), here are the pertinents -
