The MS2 Platoon is inspired by the iconic designs of WWII era field watches. This military styled field watch is made with 316L Stainless Steel and has a Sapphire Crystal protecting the dial. The MS2 is powered by a Miyota 82S5 Automatic movement that features a true no date dial, has a 40 hour power reserve and beats at 6 vibrations per second. Paired with a 22MM genuine leather strap (with quick release tabs).
With its simple lines, clean dials and vintage looks, the MS2 was designed to be worn as an everyday watch. You can expect a great watch that is:
RELIABLE: With an automatic movement from a trusted, world class manufacturer.
MINIMAL: A vintage look and feel inspired by WWII era field watches.
FUNCTIONAL: An easy-to-view dial with luminous markings and hands .
VALUE: Get a lot for a little. Having no middlemen allows us to build premium timepieces for minimal costs.
To ensure a sturdy build, the casing of the MS2 Platoon was forged using stainless steel, which has been given a beautiful brushed finish. The bezel is modest and is the perfect size on the 41mm diameter case (measured w/o the crown). With a total height of 12MM, it feels and looks good on the wrist. The crown on the MS2 is sure to stand out. It sits off center at the 4 o'clock position giving it a very unique look. The pushdown crown, which is signed with the Kingsbury 'K', completes the utilitarian look of the watch and features a practical, easy to grip edge.
Protecting the face of the watch, you'll find scratch resistant sapphire glass. Coupled with the stainless steel case and backing, the MS2 boasts 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 Platoon 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.
No field watch would be complete without a way of reading your dials in the dark and the MS2 Platoon is no exception. For our design, we chose a high quality Japanese made lume which appears white under normal conditions and glows green during low light conditions (when charged).
Both the numbered hour markings and the hour and minute hands have been treated with the luminescent paint, which is not only functional, but gives the watch a desirable glowing design.
To help keep the traditional look, the Ref.111027 comes equipped with a matching canvas strap with stainless steel hardware. The 22mm wide straps, are thick and use a high quality canvas material to fight the affects of moisture. 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.
