MING 17.09 Burgundy
Why We Love it
Why We Love it–
Entry-level watch? Sorta.
The 17-series is indeed Malaysian boutique watchmaker Ming’s entry-level product, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t wildly value-packed — and wickedly cool. The 17.09 Burgundy, in particular, was Ming’s first 17-series watch to house one of its most notable design features: Namely, laser-etched, lume-filled indices on the underside of the sapphire crystal in place of convention indices on the dial. The effect is striking, unique, and serves as further proof of company co-founder Ming Thein’s industrial design chops.
This particular 17.09 Burgundy features a 38mm stainless steel case, a polished steel bezel, a signed crown, a sapphire crystal with luminous minute track and indices on the underside, a stepped, textured burgundy dial, and a luminous, skeletonized handset. Powered by the automatic Sellita SW330 movement, it’s fitted to a double-signed Ming & Jean Rousseau grained taupe strap with a Ming-signed steel pin buckle.
In outstanding condition and shipping with much of its ephemera, this is a steal from the land of boutique watchmaking.
Don’t sleep on this one!
Produced in Switzerland and QC’d in Kuala Lumpur, Ming watches use either Sellita and ETA movements in their entry-level pieces, or higher-end calibers from the likes of Schwartz-Etienne and others on some of its pricer wares. Their products sell out quickly, and Ming often rewards repeat customers with offers of allocations on new models. The watch industry has also taken note, awarding the 17.06 Copper model the Horological Revelation price at the 2019 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève.
From simple, time-only models to GMTs and moon phases, Ming’s timepieces represent some of the best in modern boutique watchmaking, drawing on a collective 80 years of experience in the watch space to push the horological envelope.
