Kingsbury Watch Co. is now taking pre-orders on their latest creation - The MS2 Platoon. This automatic field watch is powered by a Miyota 82S5 movement, has a stainless steel case, sapphire crystal, and a water resistance level of 100M. In addition to its great looks and the top end materials, the MS2 Platoon has 3 color options to choose from and is very reasonably priced - starting at just $169 USD during the pre-order period.

To ensure a sturdy build, we had to use stainless steel to forge the MS2 casing, which has been given a beautiful brushed finish. With a modest bezel around the dial, we thought a 41mm diameter case (measured w/o the crown) would be the perfect size. With a total height of 12MM, it feels and looks good on the wrist.

One thing about the MS2 that stands out is the crown. The diamond style crown sits off-center at the 4 o'clock position giving it a very unique look. The screw-down crown, which will be signed with the Kingsbury 'K' on production models, is the perfect size and easy to grip. Protecting the face of the watch, you'll find scratch-resistant sapphire glass. Coupled with the stainless steel case and backing, the combination gives this watch a water resistance of 10ATM (100M).

The dials of the MS2 Platoon have a vintage feel and are inspired by classic field watches from the WWII era. The matte dials have bold and luminous, numbered hour markings. The watch hands, which are also luminous, are thin batons with fine pointers. Printed on the outside track, you will find 24-hour markings for reading out military time.

To keep with tradition and to also maintain a clean look, you'll notice the absence of a date window. It is important to note that the MS2 uses a true no-date automatic movement, meaning there are no phantom crown positions! At the 6 o'clock position you will see a small, concave gauge, that counts down the seconds. The small second hand is colored in an accent color that matches the 1500, 1800, 2100 and 2400 hour marking on the outside dial.

To help keep the traditional look, each MS2 Platoon comes equipped with a matching canvas strap with stainless steel hardware. The 22mm wide straps are soft and comfortable to wear. Each strap comes equipped with quick-release tabs on the back that allow for easy removal/installation, no tools required! The brushed buckles will all come laser etched with the 'Kingsbury' brand name.
