Kingsley 1945 NEW Type 1 Case in stainless steel with machmeter amo box green dial -retail $1495 Kingsley 1945 NEW Type 1 Pilot black dial – retail $1495
At Kingsley 1945 watches we are full of surprises! I am proud to say that we just launched a brand NEW Type 1 1945 Pilot case. For those of you who are unaware, all of Kingsley 1945 caes are made out of a solid block of stainless steel and are plated with a heavy duty bronze finish, black pvd finish, and now for the very first time a rose gold copper finish! Of course this is also available in the classic brushed stainless steel finish as well.
The NEW Type 1 case like the first generation Type 1 case with date function is 45 mm in size. The date pusher at the two o’clock position has been replaced with a similar looking barrel that now houses an additional case hex screw much like a spare tire on a car. The Type 1 dial has been cleaned up with bigger and bolder numbers and now comes in two different variations, the new type 1 dial and the machmeter dial. Both dials are interchangeable and are available on any Kingsley Type 1 case without date. The color choices for the new Type 1 dial are; blue, black and white. The color choices for the machmeter dial are amo box green, black and white. Those of you who are unfamiliar with what a machmeter is, it’s an aircraft pitot-static system flight instrument that shows the ratio of the true airspeed to the speed of sound, a dimensionless quantity called Mach number. The new machmeter dial pays tribute to this pilot gauge in the most modern and utilitarian way.
Other improvements to the watch include; the date function that was once located at the four o’clock position has been removed to make the dial more symmetrical and clean. The bezel which was inspired by the iconic coke lip has been given more of a beveled edge so it doesn’t snag on things as easily. The strap have been beefed up and is now available in a cinnamon color and has the classic imprinted military Kingsley 1945 writing on it. The solid case back which is see through in the middle has the imprinted Kingsley design mesh which has been enhanced to emulate more of that WWII Bomber glass while making the vintage inspired movement more visible at the same time. The hands have been redesigned to pencil shaped hands and are available in black, steel blue and orange.
The original Type one design with date function is still available in limited quantities and will be replaced with the NEW Type 1 without date function once they are completely sold out.
The NEW Type 1 is available to order now and takes 2-3 weeks to hand assemble once the order has been placed. These new models will start at $1495 for stainless steel, $1595 for stainless steel with bronze gold plating and black pvd plating and $1750 for stainless steel with copper rose gold plating.

I am very proud of the NEW Type 1 case without date function and all the other improvements that have been made in a very practical and useful way to make your experience of buying your Kingsley 1945 watch more pleasurable.
