MING 17.06 watch

Post by koimaster » September 6th 2019, 8:46am

In 2017 a group of six watch collectors banded together to start a brand called ‘MING’, named after Ming Thein, a well known watch collector and photographer, particularly in online watch fora. Perhaps an easy way to summarise this brand would be that they are by enthusiasts for enthusiasts, as it were.

With an incredibly competitive price of $900 the first model, called the Ming 17.01, came in a dial of either blue or anthracite, and the three hundred launch pieces (150 of each variant) sold out immediately (within minutes, even) as each batch was released.

Since then, there has been the 17.03 with a GMT function, 19.01 (a sapphire crystal riff on the 17.01), the 19.02 World Timer, and even a first year anniversary piece, all using Manufacture Schwarz Etienne as their movement manufacturer.

Now, there is a new model, the 17.06, in two variants – the all black ‘Monolith’ and what for me is the most attractive MING piece to date, one with a copper dial. There is also what is a first for the brand – a serially produced stainless steel case.

I have to say that the only thing I hate about the copper number is the price.*

I slipped in the bathroom yesterday and hit the sink with a plastic kettle I wanted to fill. The sink was shattered, and I had to throw my arms wide to avoid slashing them on the edges. Bashed my elbow but I didn't cry.
