MING 37.07

Celebrating its 5th anniversary, MING has announced the launch of its new model 37.07. It comes with an eye-catching mosaic dial.

MING 37.07 watch

Offering a more wrist presence and fitted with a sapphire caseback, the in 316L stainless steel measures 38mm diameter. It has a minimalistic bezel design. A domed sapphire crystal glass protects the dial side.

MING 37.07 watch with mosaic dial

The watch is equipped with the Swiss made SW210.M1 calibre exclusively made by Sellita for MING. It has a power reserve of 40 hours. Visible through the exhibition case-back, this mechanical manual-wound movement features anthracite skeletonized bridges with contrast rhodium circular brushing.

The mosaic pattern dial come with a time-only configuration with two large central hands for the hour and minute display. Both hands feature Super-LumiNova coating.

The dial uses Super-LumiNova set on the centre of a brass dial; with the outer portion circular brushed. The inner portion of the dial hosts a three-layer printed mosaic (on upper, lower surfaces of the sapphire and the lower brass dial). The mosaic pattern comprises gradient and luminous elements as well.

MING 37.07

Water resistant to 100 meters, the watch comes with a matching water safe rubber strap by Jean Rousseau. The strap is compatible with the brand’s tuck-under buckle debuted with the 37.05.

MING 37.07

For MING 37.07, the brand has implemented a time-limited order process via two windows. On 29th July 2012, two pre-order windows will be open respectively from 2AM to 2.15AM GMT and from 1PM to 1.15PM GMT. All orders placed during these two windows are guaranteed a watch.

MING 37.07

The 37.07 is priced at CHF 3,250, with a 50% non-refundable deposit (CHF 1,625) required on order. The balance is due on delivery, which expects to begin in May 2023. Conclusion of deliveries depends on the final volume and may continue through the end of 2023.

MING 22.01 GMT

MING presents its latest dual time watch, the 22.01 GMT.

The 22.01 bridges the gap between the new 37-series and outgoing 17-series, with design cues taken from both dial architecture and case design.

MING 22.01 GMT

The dial itself takes inspiration from two very different sources. Firstly, the serene Kyoto dial reflects the textures and colours of traditional Japanese gardens with placed stone and perfect moss, overlaid with the impression of water conveyed by an intermediate sapphire dial. The dial has a dark green outer chapter ring and grey center, both with grained texture, and GMT markings in silver.

MING 22.01 GMT

The second Gilt dial is a punchier, modern take on early brass and gilt watches. It features with a dark cyan chapter ring, dark gold center, gilt GMT markings and grained texture.

MING 22.01 GMT

As the base metal dial is overlaid with sapphire, it exhibits the brand’s 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.

MING 22.01 GMT watch

The 38mm case draws inspiration from both the 20-series and 37-series and features alternating brushed and polished layers; it is a monobloc construction in grade 5 titanium and without spacers, and water resistant to 100m. The lugs retain the signature flare and feature a continuous twist highlighted by brushing that runs continuously from the case flanks through the underside of the lugs.

MING 22.01 GMT watch case back

MING 22.01 GMT features a sapphire display back. The watch is equipped with the automatic-winding Sellita SW330-2 in a black circular grained finish with a skeletonized rotor. The intermediate crown position adjusts the 24-hour GMT hand unidirectionally in one-hour increments, and the third crown position hacks the movement and adjusts all hands simultaneously.

MING 22.01 GMT

The 22.01 is assembled by Manufacture Schwarz-Etienne in Switzerland, finished with Barenia leather straps by Manufacture Jean Rousseau and accompanied by a leather travel pouch by Studio Koji Sato. The keeperless tuck buckle with half-hole micro-adjustment provides a comfortable wearing experience.

MING 22.01 GMT

The brand is offering 300 pieces of each variant for existing customers, and a further 700 of each variant for the general public.

MING 22.01 GMT

The MING 22.01 GMT is priced at CHF 3,250 for either variant, inclusive of shipping worldwide.

MING 37.05

MING’s 37.05 is an alluring mechanical moon phase watch. Made of stainless steel, it comes with a multi-layered sapphire dial. The apertures for date and moon lie in the lower layer dial, which is metal, textured and carries a midnight blue to black gradient reminiscent of the night sky, with a seamless sapphire dial above that carries the hour indices (laser etched, and filled with HyCeram) and a central mask for the moon to mirror the brand’s emblematic peripheral ring forms.

MING 37.05 moonphase watch

A full moon thus forms a complete ring, which is luminous, with partial phases being portions thereof. The date window preserves symmetry at 6 o’clock, and is as subtle as possible with a background color-matched to the dial, and the brand’s signature font in light grey.

MING 37.05 moonphase watch

One of the most dynamic dials from MING, it inverts completely from a seamless silver mirror to a solid blue-black with moon and date displays. The transition is gradual and most of the time, the watch presents a bit of both: a calm, reflective serenity above and a lot more visual texture below.

Instead of semicircle moon aperture, MING 37.05 features a centrally-driven moon disc to offer a sufficiently large display to allow the ring display to work.

MING 37.05 moonphase watch

The brand has chosen the Sellita SW288 movement to equip this timepiece. It was then further reworked in a similar style to the 7001.M1 used in the 27.01 and 27.02; it is skeletonized, matte-blasted and anthracite coated, with a contrasting portion on the main train bridge in circular-brushed rhodium. This mechanical manual-wound calibre is visible through the sapphire crystal case-back.

MING 37.05 moonphase watch

The 37-series case family is a core MING product line, spanning from entry level to Special Projects and everything in between. It has a flexible architecture that can accept a wide range of movements, is scalable to thickness, and can be produced in a wide range of materials. At the same time, it is a highly refined case design that has complex compound curves – such as the line from case side to lug tip – and multiple finishes.

MING 37.05 moonphase watch

MING has also increased the visual presence of the case with a significantly larger dial opening than the 17- series and domed front and rear crystals. However, wearability and comfort for a wide variety of wrist sizes is maintained with the same 38mm maximum diameter and 20mm lug width. In short: it looks bigger than a 17-series, but feels the same on the wrist.

MING 37.05 moonphase watch

Like all MING watches, this new model is a result of a long standing partnership with Manufacture Schwarz-Etienne, which is responsible for construction, production and assembly of the 37.05 collection. The brand has also partnered with Jean Rousseau Paris for straps and Studio Koji Sato for the pouches.

MING 37.05 moonphase watch

The 37.05 is one of the brand’s first watches to be offered on a keeperless buckle system that tucks the unused hole portion of the strap underneath the opposite end. By doing this, a given strap length works for a wider range of sizes because the unused portion effectively increases the diameter of smaller wrists.

MING 37.05 moonphase watch

The overall configuration is neater, more comfortable, more secure and more visually harmonious. Finally, the buckle also has built in micro adjustment simply by moving the middle spring bar.

The MING 37.05 is priced at CHF 4,950. It is available exclusively at http://www.ming.watch from 25 November 2021. The delivery expected to begin July 2022.

MING 20.11 Mosaic

MING’s new 20.11 Mosaic watch boasts a sapphire crystal dial with a 3D chessboard pattern created by a special lasering process. 2,650 squares of varying opacity, each formed with a linear diffraction pattern and etched with a high-power femtosecond laser on three different levels within the sapphire crystal dial. This process was developed in collaboration with DM Surfaces SA of St. Imier.

MING 20.11 Mosaic

Depending on ambient light, the Mosaic can turn from invisible to a prominent chessboard and the brand chose to use a dark movement finish to provide a contrasting background, whilst adding visual texture. At night, light from the fully charged HyCeram in the sapphire dial will reflect off the Mosaic and result in a soft glow.

MING 20.11 Mosaic watch

The 20.11 is powered by the Schwarz-Etienne for MING Cal. ASE 200.2, with micro-rotor winding and a unique configuration previously seen in MING 19.05.

MING 20.11 Mosaic case back view Schwarz-Etienne movement

While the brand has retained the skeletonized bridges, the finishing is now matte-blasted with a black DLC coating and contrasting diamond-cut anglage. It has a power reserve of approximately 86 hours and is wound bidirectionally by a micro-rotor made of sintered tungsten.

MING 20.11 Mosaic caseback Schwarz-Etienne

The movement is equipped with the signature MING skeletonized barrel cover. As with other ASE powered MING watches, the movement is adjusted in five positions and tested for an extended period prior to delivery.

MING 20.11 Mosaic caseback

For the first time, MING has used sapphire crystal hands with HyCeram for legibility in all light conditions. The same HyCeram is used on the luminous indices of the dial sapphire.

MING 20.11 Mosaic watch lume shot

To add even more visual texture to the rear, the inner bezel surrounding the movement is made of titanium and machined with a Clous-de-Paris pattern and DLC coated.

MING 20.11 Mosaic swiss made automatic watch

The 20.11 is completed with a pair of handmade straps from Jean Rousseau Paris, a leather travel pouch by Studio Koji Sato, and a 700-lumen Nitecore LED torch for charging the HyCeram.

MING 20.11 Mosaic automatic watch

The MING 20.11 is priced at CHF 14,500 with orders being taken on a deposit basis and deliveries commencing February 2022. A public batch of 50 watches will be offered, in addition to an existing customer batch that is time limited from 5 July to 9 July 2021.

MING 17.09

MING bids farewell to the brand’s popular 17-series with the 17.09: an evolved daily wearer with new, extra functionality and overall design updates.

MING 17.09

For the first time, MING brings laser-etched, lume-filled sapphire to their entry level watch: the indices have now moved to the underside of the top crystal and glow with a new intensity. They reflect the graphic design language first shown on the 18.01 H41 and 27.01, and are complimented by a bold new handset derived from the 20.01 Chronographs.

MING 17.09 automatic watch

The dial is now a two-piece construction with a fine Clous-de-Paris pattern in the center and a circular brushed outer portion, creating a very dynamic presentation as ambient light changes.

MING 17.09 swiss made watch

The 17.09 is in burgundy and blue dial variants paired with matched straps by Jean Rousseau Paris and they offer two very distinct personalities. The straps are complimented with a flying blade buckle in stainless steel.

MING 17.09 automatic watch with burgundy dial

The polished and brushed 316L stainless steel case has also received some proportional revisions for greater wrist presence, but remains a very wearable 38mm to cater for a wide variety of wrist sizes.

MING 17.09 automatic watch case back view

Lugs have been re-profiled with a continuous twist that extends the brushing continuously from the case flanks through to the underside of the lugs, while retaining the brand’s signature flare.

MING 17.09 blue and burgundy dial watches

MING has partnered with Manufacture Schwarz-Etienne to develop an independent hour hand adjustment mechanism, based on the Sellita SW330-2. This complication and modification is exclusive to MING.

MING 17.09 watch lume

The intermediate crown position now advances the hour hand independently to the rest of the gear train, which continues to run. This is both useful for daylight savings time as well as for when travel resumes globally. Both hands can of course be adjusted together in the third crown position, where the movement also hacks.

MING 17.09 watch blue dial

The first batch of watches will be made available to existing customers and deliveries will begin in July 2021. The MING 17.09 is priced at CHF 1,950 in both variants and includes shipping worldwide.

MING 27.02

Based on the 2020 GPHG-finalist MING 27.01, this new timepiece features a sapphire dial ( thicker than the brass dial of the 27.01) and a blue Clous-de-Paris guilloché ring around the periphery of the movement, without any increase in overall thickness.

MING 27.02

In addition to the core elements of radial symmetry, legibility, the 0 marker and flared lugs, the MING 27.02 watch extends the smooth visual transitions beyond the case lines to the dial itself. The brand added a gradient to the lower surface of the sapphire dial and laser etched markers on the upper surface. This causes the guilloché to appear to fade not just in depth and spatial frequency but also saturation. It transitions from an inky black center to prominent guilloché at the edges and exhibits the trademark inversion under certain angles – with the markers appearing to float over a uniform mirror.

MING 27.02

The MING 27.02 watch retains the 6.9mm total height (including crystals) of the 27.01. It also retained the ‘flying blade’ lugs machined from a monobloc stainless steel caseband and the 38×6.9mm proportions which give the watch solid wrist presence but versatile wearability.

MING 27.02

The MING 27.02 houses Cal. MING 7001.M1, a heavily modified ETA Peseux 7001 hand-wound mechanical calibre. The bridges and plates are reworked by Manufacture Schwarz-Etienne in a configuration of the brand’s design: solid baseplate with maximal opening of upper bridges to put moving components on display.

MING 27.02

Like its sibling, the 27.02 does not carry any luminous material. However, a contrasting mix of surfaces allows for exceptional legibility and a sensation of much greater physical depth than should be possible given the case thickness.

The variation in texture continues through the case: at the front, the lighter polished steel bezel transitions to blue Clous-de-Paris and then an inky black pool on the dial. On the sides, polished flying blades are offset against matte-blasted recesses and the rear echoes the front, with brushed steel and etched text surrounding a black movement.

MING 27.02

MING continues its partnership with Manufacture Schwarz-Etienne for the production of the 27.02, Jean Rousseau Paris for the straps and Studio Koji Sato for travel pouches.

The MING 27.02 is available to order from 15 January 2021, exclusively from http://www.ming.watch. It is priced at CHF 4,950, with a total lifetime production of 200 watches. Deliveries are expected to begin in November 2021.

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

MING 18.01 H41

The new MING 18.01 H41 is a large and robust timepiece specially designed for dive watch enthusiasts.

In 2019, MING released a well-received run of prototype dive watches called the Abyss Concept. These were true prototypes intended for R&D, and the watch was never released as a production run. The new 18.01 H41 is a production model based on this prototype watch.

MING 18.01 H41 automatic diving watch 1000 meters water resistance

The newly launched 18.01 H41 watch demonstrates the versatility of MING’s new design language. This diving watch is available in two variants with a new universal fit, curved-end, quick release 20mm bracelet that is also backwards compatible with all MING watches to date.

MING 18.01 H41 automatic diving watch 1000 meters water resistance

With a 40mm diameter and 12.9mm thick case made from of grade 5 titanium, the 18.01 H41 is the largest MING to date and has noticeably more wrist presence than the 17 series. It is slightly thinner than the Abyss Concept, thanks to new materials and bezel construction.

MING 18.01 H41 automatic diving watch 1000 meters water resistance

The case design benefits from both balanced pressure loading and the tensile and compressive strength of grade 5 titanium. An added benefit is a head weight of just 65g, which is extremely comfortable on a strap and balanced on the universal bracelet, also in grade 5 titanium.

MING 18.01 H41 automatic diving watch 1000 meters water resistance

The MING team has several certified divers – who made MT’s design task difficult and ensured that the H41 is truly functional as a dive watch. The 18.01 H41 is water resistant up to 1000 meters, making it suitable for professional diving.

MING 18.01 H41 automatic diving watch 1000 meters water resistance

It retains the same functional and security features of the Abyss Concept: a unidirectional rotating bezel with 60 clicks that can be turned easily, but not accidentally; multiple sets of gaskets and seals; and an indicator to warn of an unscrewed crown. Even the caseback has a high-friction surface to better grip arm or wet-suit and prevent the watch moving around.

MING 18.01 H41 automatic diving watch 1000 meters water resistance

Both of H41’s colour schemes were chosen for legibility and contrast: time is instantly and easily legible, with a timer bezel that has scales that are differentiated into 15-minute segments of reducing prominence. The DLC coated solid steel bezel eliminates the risk of losing an insert due to pressure changes or impact, and to maximize contrast for the timing scale. This is only the second MING with a second hand, to fit the diver specification and validate the watch is running at a glance.

There is a significant amount of luminous material applied to ensure visibility under all light conditions: essentially, everything white on the watch is loaded with Super-LumiNova X1; applied as a liquid epoxy to the bezel, a solid block in the hands, and as HyCeram – a sapphire-fused luminous ceramic – on the dial ring.

MING 18.01 H41 automatic diving watch 1000 meters water resistance

The MING 18.01 H41 watch houses an ETA 2824-2 top grade movement, modified to remove the calendar and intermediate hand setting positions.

The watch was created in partnership with La Division du Temps, a subsidiary of Manufacture Schwarz-Etienne for production, assembly and testing. The other partners include DM Surfaces for the HyCeram in the dial; Jean Rousseau for waterproof rubber straps and Studio Koji Sato for the new leather travel pouches.

MING 18.01 H41 automatic diving watch 1000 meters water resistance

The MING 18.01 H41 is assembled in Switzerland and is available in three configurations:
– Two tone on rubber strap, at CHF 2,950
– Two tone on titanium bracelet, at CHF 3,250
– All-DLC on rubber strap, at CHF 3,250

MING 27.01

An evolution of MING’s debut watch model 17.01, this new timepiece advances the concept of a versatile, collector-centric and accessible daily wearer by a significant step.

MING 27.01 is the first watch to feature the brand’s second generation design language. The core design elements were further distilled down to radial symmetry; legibility; the 0 marker; flared lugs and smooth case transitions; mixed finishes; and visual dissonance in layering to make watches seem much deeper or shallower than their physical dimensions might suggest.

On top of the additional layering and material transitions, the case in stainless steel now incorporates the innovative flying blade lugs. The 27.01 also introduces a new monochromatic focus for 2020, pairing well with a wide variety of wardrobes and straps.

It is also the thinnest MING watch made to date. The 38×6.9mm proportions give it surprising wrist presence yet versatile for all wrist sizes. The overarching brief of reduction has been carried through to the case and movement: excess material has been removed from the periphery of the case, with hollows extending through the lugs.

MING 27.01 manual wound watch

The 27.01 is powered by a heavily reworked ETA Peseux 7001 manual wound movement. The movement retains the original gear train and escapement. The bridges and plates are remade, courtesy of Manufacture Schwarz-Etienne, in a configuration of MING’s design, retaining the same aesthetic as the 19-series: solid baseplate with maximal opening of upper bridges to put the moving components on display.

The 27.01 is the first MING watch not to carry any luminous material. However, a contrasting mix of matte and brushed surfaces in four different shades of silver allow for exceptional legibility. This subtle variation in texture and height of elements creates a depth despite the lack of thickness; in its interaction with light.

The variation in texture continues through the case: at the front, the lighter polished steel bezel transitions to mid and then dark grey on the dial. On the sides, polished flying blades are offset against matte-blasted recesses and the rear echoes the front, with brushed steel transitioning to surrounds of dark-relief etched text, and finally a black movement.

MING has once again partnered with Manufacture Schwarz-Etienne for the production of the 27.01, Jean Rousseau Paris for the straps and Studio Koji Sato for our travel pouches.

The MING 27.01 is priced at CHF 3,950 and production for 2020 is restricted to 125 watches. Deliveries are expected to begin in September 2020.

MING 17.06

The 17.06, a new version from MING 17 series, is a much higher grade watch at a small increment in price – every element across the board has been comprehensively improved.

Case finishing, hands and dial, courtesy of SWC, are now superior to the 17.03; the watch is powered by a self-winding ETA 2824-2 modified for two crown positions and regulated in 5 positions; the supplied strap is handmade by Jean Rousseau in Paris, and the travel pouch is redesigned and hand-sewn by Koji Sato. The retail box, by Swisspack, has not been left alone either.

Furthermore, assembly is now performed by La Division du Temps, a subsidiary of Manufacture Schwarz Etienne.

MING 17.06 watch

The brand reengineered the 17-series case from the ground up: the bezel is now held by screws from within the case to facilitate assembly and servicing, as well as allowing us to retain the rigid construction and no spacer ring. Clearance between the top of the canon pinion and the crystal underside is now a mere 0.30mm, making the rehaut as shallow as possible.

Further minor changes have also been made to the signature recurved lug geometry to improve aesthetics and wearing comfort.

Early on in the process, some prototypes were made of stainless steel and the team liked the heft and increased wrist presence, so the 17.06 is Ming’s first series production piece in stainless steel 316L. Double lug holes have been retained to accommodate both straight and curved straps.

MING 17.06 watch with black case and black dial

The brand will offer two distinct variants of the 17.06: a texture-etched Copper dial with an alternating polished and brushed case, and a stealthier (‘Monolith’) version with a matte black dial and anthracite DLC bead blasted case. Proportions and dimensions are identical; as are hands and dial markings, but the watches appear completely different on the wrist.

Both watches have hands and dials coated with Super- LumiNova C1. However, the choice of classical or modern is up to you; the copper dial is timeless but the Monolith pairs very well with unconventional straps.

The MING 17.06 will be available to order on 19 September, 1PM GMT exclusively from http://www.ming.watch. The 17.06 Copper is priced at CHF 1,250 and production restricted to 300 pieces per annum and the 17.06 Monolith is priced at CHF 1,500 and production restricted to 125 pieces per annum. Prices include worldwide courier and deliveries begin end-October 2019.

MING

MING is a horological collective formed and funded entirely by a group of six watch enthusiasts from around the world under the leadership of Ming Thein, a photographer, designer, business strategist and above all, a lover of watches.

Together, the MING team draws from over 80 years of total experience collecting fine timepieces – ranging from vintage to avant-garde; from quality affordable to six-figure commissioned independent pieces.

MING aims to bring back this sense of excitement and discovery through a series of pieces that show considered deliberation and refinement in every detail, but remain accessible to a wider audience.

The brand doesn’t manufacture in-house, but rather use the most appropriate suppliers for the design intent and price point. The majority of suppliers also work with major Swiss brands; assembly, regulation and testing are performed in Switzerland, with final quality control done personally in Malaysia.

MING is a registered trademark in Switzerland and Malaysia and represented by Horologer MING Ventures (002671440-P), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

TEAM MING

Ming Thein, Founder

Ming Thein is the artist-engineer behind MING. He has a diverse background that bridges both the creative and corporate, with more than 10 years in strategy and finance and 17 years as a photographer, the last seven as a full time independent professional.

Ming was born in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 1986, educated in Australia, New Zealand, and finally graduated with a masters’ degree in theoretical physics from Balliol College, Oxford, in 2003 at the age of 16.

Somewhere during the mechanical portions of his degree, he contracted the watch bug, supplemented by a Lange 1815 gifted on graduation by his father. It would follow through his early career at KPMG and The Boston Consulting Group, where the generosity of online collector communities allowed him access to their events and watches.

His contributions to the community were driven by knowledge (including numerous attempts at movement design) and photography: through capturing a personal interpretation of a watch, Ming in a way made them his own.

Ming Thein

These early studies captured the attention of some of the brand principals and formed the beginning of his career in photography – focusing on watches, in and around his corporate jobs. Following several years at investment funds and culminating in a senior operational director role at McDonald’s, Ming traded corporate for photography for good in early 2012 to satisfy creative impulses.

By this point he had been appointed a brand ambassador for Leica, and was regularly photographing for the big Swiss watch brands and independents – including images for an exhibition co-sponsored by Leica and Jaeger-LeCoultre in 2012. He built an online community of over 150,000 photographers with a site that now spans more than 1,500 articles on all things photographic.

Ming diversified out of watches to specialize in corporate and industrial documentary: telling the story of a project from inception to completion, and expressing the beauty in the final product.

Previous commissions include work for Jaeger-LeCoultre, Van Cleef and Arpels, Speake-Marin, Girard-Perregaux, Maitres du Temps, Andreas Strehler, Romain Gauthier, Nissan, Koenigsegg, Kenzo Tange, Chun Wo, Hijjas Kasturi and a large number of others. In 2016 he was appointed a global brand ambassador for Hasselblad, and in 2017 was promoted to Chief of Strategy for the Swedish camera company.

Simultaneously, his passion for things horological shifted gears due to both accessibility and market changes. The seeds of MING were sown at an industry show attended with several close friends in 2014, whom would later go on to co-found MING. Following that, Ming’s commission of several extremely bespoke pieces from Ludwig Oechslin’s Ochs und Junior taught him much about translation of design into metal. In early 2016, the group was ready – and the first watch, the 17.01, started to take shape.

Ming Thein serves as designer, photographer and strategist for the brand, in addition to continuing work as a commercial photographer and advisor to the Horologer MING

MING 19.02, World Timer

After the success of their 19.01 watch, MING presents 19.02. Dedicated to travelers, this new timepiece incorporates a world time complication powered by a Swiss made microrotor automatic movement.

The 19.02 retains the 19.01’s gradient sapphire dial, now in black, with a masked section for a titanium 24 hour disk, under the dial, that rotates to easily display time across the marked timezones.

MING 19.02, World Timer

MING chose to make the cities static and 24 hour disk rotate as numbers are easier to recognize at a glance than airport codes. The cities are printed under the sapphire to minimize parallax and create the impression of a completely seamless display.

The brand has also added a central crosshair to assist in fast indexing and reading of time, and Ming Thein’s eclectic city selection for something a little different – the 19.02 is probably one of the few world time watches with Kuala Lumpur on the dial, reflecting the brand’s home.

MING 19.02 World Timer watch

Though the 19.02 shares the same index markings, gradient sapphire dial, case body and hands, the feel of the watch is substantially different to the 19.01 due to the rose gold movement peeking through the edges of the dial: it has a warm, classical palette as opposed to a cool, modern one.

The additional 0.3mm overall thickness required for the world time complication has been accommodated into the front box sapphire crystal, with a slightly greater radius of curvature to evoke the feel of vintage Plexiglas.

MING 19.02 watch with World Timer

The brand has once again partnered with Manufacture Schwarz-Etienne to power the 19.02: this time with a variant of their in-house microrotor automatic, the ASE220.1, in a unique configuration for MING. The movement features skeletonized bridges, a matte-blasted 5N rose gold coating, and hand-finished and polished anglage. It has a power reserve of approximately 70 hours and is wound bi-directionally by a rotor made of sintered tungsten.

MING 19.02 World Time watch with Schwarz-Etienne microrotor automatic ASE220.1 movement

Once again, the signature MING skeletonized barrel cover allows for easy determination of the state of wind. As with the 19.01, the movement is adjusted in five positions and tested for an extended period prior to delivery.

MING 19.02, World Timer watch with Schwarz-Etienne microrotor automatic ASE220.1 movement

The 19.02’s case – in reality 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.

The dial is made of sapphire and uses a unique lacquer process to achieve a deep black in the center, and fully transparent edges to allow some of the movement’s rose gold baseplate to be seen. It also has the deep reflective luster reminiscent of enamel. All printed markings are on the underside of the dial to achieve a seamless look.

MING 19.02, World Timer

Both external sapphire crystals carry double-sided antireflective coatings. Hands are skeletonized and loaded with Super-LumiNova X1, along with the ring inside the bezel that projects a soft glow onto the dial. Ming has also retained the quick release curved straps, made by Jean Rousseau Paris.

MING 19.01

Introduced in November 2017, the model 19.01 is the second timepiece from MING.

This timepiece carries and further refines the MING design DNA. All of the elements from the brand’s first creation (Model 17.01) are present, but have been taken a step further by challenging the boundaries of transparency and skeletonization.

MING 19.01

Sapphire is extensively used in the case construction, and the easy to wind crown and distinctive flared lugs from the 17.01 are retained but gain additional sculpting; the ring motifs remain, and axial symmetry is preserved.

MING 19.01 watch

The 19.01 watch was designed by Ming Thein in Kuala Lumpur; serialized and assembled by Manufacture Schwarz-Etienne in La Chaux-de-Fonds. The straps are constructed by Jean Rosseau in Paris and the travel pouch is handmade in Kuala Lumpur by local leather artisans Thirtyfour Bespoke.

MING 19.01 swiss made watch

The watch houses the Schwarz-Etienne MSE100.1 movement, a Swiss made caliber which features double barrels running in parallel for >100h power reserve, a hacking function, skeletonized bridges with matte anglage and two different anthracite tones for bridges and mainplate. The barrel covers have also been skeletonized to allow the owner to easily determine the state of wind of the watch.

MING Watch with Schwarz-Etienne MSE100.1 movement

This is an aesthetically beautiful movement with a very traditional layout yet modern design and modular construction that opens easy possibilities for future variants. It is also adjusted to five positions; all components including the hairspring are made in-house by Schwarz-Etienne.

The 19.01’s case – in reality 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.

The dial is where the 19.01 is truly unique: made of sapphire, the brand used a unique lacquer process to achieve a deep opaque blue in the center, and fully transparent edges to allow some of the movement’s baseplate to be seen. It also has the deep reflective lustre reminiscent of enamel.
