SUCCESSFUL: Kickstarter: Kingsbury Watch Co - MS2 Platoon

#1

Post by TheJohnP » Wed Aug 14, 2019 9:52 am

Kingsbury Watch Co have launched their latest Kickstarter for the MS2 Platoon, an automatic field watch.
Personally feel they may have missed the mark by using a non-hacking movement for a WWII era inspired field watch, but maybe that's just me.


Unfortunately, all the Super Early Bird pricing slots are spoken for.
But the Early Bird pricing is only about $10 more, so not too shabby.

Early Bird pricing is about $181
Regular Kickstarter pricing will be roughly $188

Estimated delivery is January 2010

Backers will receive an MS2 Platoon with a canvas strap along with their choice of an additional leather strap.

The MS2 Platoon has a trio of color options to choose from:
- "INFANTRY" - Silver Case / Black Dial / Green Strap With Silver Hardware
- "COMMANDER" - Gold Case / Green Dial / Green Strap With Gold Hardware
- "STEALTH" - Black Case / Black Dial / Black Strap With Silver Hardware

A non-hacking field watch is pointless. How the heck are you supposed to synchronize with your fellow (office) commandos? :lol:
