Luminox and Tony Kanaan continue their collaboration and proudly announce the release of the fourth TK Limited Edition Series of 999 numbered pieces.
The new TK racing chrono watch features a striking white enamel dial (a first for Luminox) outlined in a black and white checkered flag motif. Kanaans's racing colors of green and yellow (also the colors of his native Brazil) are prominently featured on his watch, along with his number 11. The black leather strap has two racing stripes of white leather to match the white dial. Also available with a PU Strap.
I have always wanted one of these but the Limited Edition has always sold out in previous years. The price was always a bit high as well with these selling in the $800-$1000 range at most places. It looks like this years model didn't sell so well and some of them showed up at discount houses like Sierra Trading Post and Overstock.com.
