I recently got to attend a short session meet and greet with MING founders Ming Thein and Kin-meng Chan. Attendees were shown some of the latest offerings from the brand such as the MING 20.11 Mosaic, MING 20.01 s2 Chronograph, MING 37.05 Moonphase, MING 37.07 Mosaic and the most recent MING 37.04 Monopusher.

Something for everybody – Sellita, Schwarz Etienne, Agenhor & a very special Techniques horlogères Appliquées (THA) design, rejuvenated by MING and La-Joux Perret.

MING 20.11 Mosaic

The Schwarz-Etienne for MING Cal. ASE200.2 based on Schwarz Etienne’s ASE200 movement. As with most MING watches, this movement gets the space age bridge treatment.
The 20.11 is a big watch, but the lug-to-lug width helps this 42mm case sit nicely on the wrist.

MING 37.05 Moonphase

A size comparison – 42mm MING 20.11 Mosaic on the left, and 38mm MING 37.05 Moonphase on the right.

MING 20.01 s2 Chronograph

The 20.01 s2 gets a different Mosaic treatment compared to the 20.11, and the differences are discussed in this blogpost if you’re a nerd. And if you’re reading this, you probably are a nerd.
The MING 20.01 s2 is the concept sports car that gets to show off every bit of design and engineering the brand has to offer. It manages to combine all current MING design elements into a cohesive package, and the final cherry on top happens to be one of the most capable Chronograph movements created in a very long time, the Agenhor Agengraphe.
The incredible Agenhor for MING Agengraphe Cal. 6361.M1 is based on the Agengraphe caliber created by Jean-Marc Wiederrecht and the team at Agenhor. This photograph does not do this movement justice.

MING 37.07 Mosaic

MING 37.04 Monopusher

This movement was originally designed by FP Journe, Vianney Halter and Denis Flageollet during their time at Techniques horlogères Appliquées (THA). This movement is a bit of a legend, and has turned the Cartier Tortue Monopoussoir CPCP into a highly sought after timepiece. MING has managed to source enough movements to release a batch of 100 of these watches, with the movements getting a complete makeover, where finishing and design are concerned. The makeover was done in collaboration with La-Joux Perret, and the movement is being called the LJP5000.M1.

Thanks for reading/looking, and thanks to Ming Thein and Kin-meng Chan for being excellent hosts.
