Kingsley 1945 “King- Seal” automatic in black steel
Pre-owned – Excellent Condition
The King-Seal Coin Edge Black Arabic-Compass Automatic is an exclusive 1930’s style design inspired by trench watches that came into use by the military during WW1 because pocket watches were not practical for combat. This watch was a transitional design between a pocket watch and a wrist watch. Designed to feel like a modern day rugged wrist mounted pocket watch on a leather bomber strap. The Arabic-Compass dial is a unique one of a kind design that features a combination of Compass letters and numerals. Featuring a vintage style coin edge bezel that has a domed green edge glass with an extended crown inspired by pocket watches of the 1930’s. Designed, engineered and assembled in Providence RI with ultra high quality parts powered by a vintage inspired 24 Jewel Seiko Automatic movement uniquely customized with intricate Cotes De Geneve engraved parts. The hand made nature and vintage style of some of the straps, parts and watch cigar boxes means no two watches are exactly the same. Created as a “Prototype” series by the designer and has been uniquely marked “Prototype” on the case back. Each is accompanied by a black authenticity credit card with our iconic Kingsley No.1945 U.S. Federal Trademark Registration Serial No. 8642 6442 embossed in gold.
