I should first say that my fourth Sumo, yes fourth, has finally made me find religion. There is no way I'm selling this Sumo. It is a beautiful and manly watch and its price point is very good for a watch of this quality. I should add that the Sumo, the Kinetic Diver, and my Orient Saturation Diver point to my ultimate watch aesthetic. Throw my Seiko Tuna in the mix, and I feel that I have a very complete collection.
A very important note: This fourth Sumo, unlike the others, felt gritty during the winding of the crown. When I mentioned this to Gary, he sent me a link that suggested I try waxed dental floss and I used my unwaxed floss (no waxed in the house) and it seems to have gotten rid of most of the gritty feeling.
I find that comparing the Sumo and the Kinetic Diver makes me appreciate both all the more. They have similar cues but the Sumo is more traditional and elegant while the Kinetic Diver has more boldness, girth, and unique styling. Not surprisingly, the 44mm Sumo sits on the wrist in a way that gives me more comfort than the 48mm Kinetic Diver.
Both have amazing lume, the best in the business. I feel fortunate to have both and their appeal makes me want less, not more, watches.
