Why We Love it

This has to be one of the best collaborations in horological history.

Ming, the Malaysian boutique brand founded in 2017, teamed up with Massena LAB, brainchild of watch industry veteran William Massena, on a special, limited-edition timepiece, the 17.09 Ming X Massena LAB Honey. Inspired by midcentury Rolex “honeycomb” dials, this LE of 50 pieces quickly sold out due to both its good looks and the reputations of its partner brands.

This particular 17.09 from the circa 2020s features a 38mm stainless steel case, unique Ming flared lugs, a sapphire crystal, a signed crown, a polished bezel, a yellow honeycomb and brushed dial with laser-etched, white Super-LumiNova Arabic indices and logos on the sapphire crystal (cool!), a matching, skeletonized alpha handset, and a Jean Rousseau black leather strap with a signed pin buckle. Powered by the automatic Sellita SW330-2 movement, it’s in like-new condition and comes with much of its ephemera.

Well-sized, wildly unique and highly collectible, this is one of the best boutique watch brand releases we’ve seen in quite a while.

Brand Story

+
Established in 2017 in Malaysia by Ming Thein and a close group of watch enthusiast friends and investors, Ming has quickly climbed to the top of the “high-end independent” heap for its inspired designs, minimalist aesthetics and wildly cool dials. Small details such as a bracelet that fits universally on all models, a unique 12 o’clock marker, and flared lugs make for a notable product line that nevertheless flies well under the radar in a world obsessed with steel sports watches from a handful of well-known brands.

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.
