The multilayered dial on these is really cool -
As the base metal dial is overlaid with sapphire, it exhibits our signature inversion under certain lighting conditions. During inversion, the underlying colour disappears completely, and multiple internal reflections deliver dynamic layering.

The metallic GMT markings are on the top of the sapphire dial to retain legibility, and hour indices are on the underside of the top crystal in HyCeram X1 formulation. Both dials are accompanied by colour-matched GMT hands and the highly legible handset from the 20 Series and 17.09.

It sounds like they are trying to strike a happy medium in terms of availability with 300 of each variant reserved for former owners of Ming watches and 700 of each reserved for new customers. While they'll be bringing new customers into the fold which they have to do to continue to grow the brand, not everyone will be happy, ever, regardless of what group they belong to. From a growth perspective it's a good idea - It'll be interesting to gauge the response.

Where does one shop for Ming?

There's a cooking show called "Simply Ming" but I don't need anymore cookbooks.
https://ming.watch

Pre-order at the website only. Delivery scheduled for the "end" of the year. Be quick if you want one- they sell out fast and there is only 700 of each variant for new customers.

EDIT: Delivery begins February '23. Ordering dates and information: https://ming.watch/blogs/journal/ming-2 ... nformation
