MING 19.05

MING bids farewell to the brand’s 19-series with a distillation of the best of 19.01, 19.02 and 19.03 into a final edition of 15 watches.

MING 19.05

The MING 19.05 has a new solid sapphire dial with inky black undercoat that shares the same ‘inversion’ with the other MING watches under various lighting conditions. However, it is the first 19-series to have indices and luminous material on the dial itself: the arcs previously lasered into the upper crystal are now cut into the dial and filled with ceramic Super-LumiNova X1 for enhanced brightness and definition.

MING 19.05

The 19.05 is powered by the Schwarz-Etienne for MING Cal. ASE 200.1, in a unique configuration and micro-rotor winding. The movement features skeletonized bridges, a matte-blasted 5N rose gold coating, and hand-polished anglage. It has a power reserve of approximately 72 hours and is wound bi-directionally by a micro-rotor made of sintered tungsten.

MING 19.05

The signature MING skeletonized barrel cover allows for easy determination of the state of wind. As with the other 19-series watches, the movement is adjusted in five positions and tested for an extended period prior to delivery.

MING 19.05

The 19.05’s case – a thin titanium band holding the two deep-box sapphire crystals together – is made from grade-5 titanium with a mixture of mirror-polished and finely brushed surfaces. It is once again constructed without a spacer ring for maximum rigidity.

MING 19.05

Both external sapphire crystals carry double-sided antireflective coatings. Hands are skeletonized and loaded with Super-LumiNova X1, along with the luminous ring inside the bezel that projects a soft glow onto the dial.

The 19.05 is completed by MING’s Universal Bracelet in matching grade-5 titanium with curved quick release ends, a handmade strap from Jean Rousseau Paris and a leather travel pouch by Studio Koji Satto.

MING 19.05

The MING 19.05 is limited to 15 watches at CHF 9,950 with deliveries expected to begin early-May 2021. It is available to order immediately from www.ming.watch
