"These are remarkable watches, especially at the price, which is $900. The quality of materials is excellent but more than anything, you're getting a tremendously carefully thought through product...but the degree of attention to detail in everything from chronometry to mechanical solidity, to aesthetics is far above what one usually sees in any wristwatch, not only at this price but at any price. ...they're some of the most interesting introductions from a new brand that I've seen in quite a while, micro-brand or not." Hodinkee (14 Aug 2017) - full review - and reposted on Bloomberg (22 Aug 2017)

"Overall, I’m quite happy and impressed with this debut offering. The watch brings something unique in terms of design to the table but hasn’t compromised on the quality one would expect for this price. Highly recommended for someone looking for an affordable, elegant yet fun watch that’s well-built and easy to maintain.A Blog To Watch (18 Aug 2017) - full review

"The design looks like if no – or at least little – compromises have been made. The watch is well-proportioned and the sleek design has this ‘organic’ touch to it. The polished bezel and lugs in combination with the brushed case band give it a very nice ‘play’ with light....Given the price tag of this watch, it is a quite amazing and unique design that can be offered for this kind of money." Fratello Watches (14 Aug 2017)

"The first thing to know is that Ming designed the 17.01 himself, from scratch. This is important for several reasons, not least of which is the fact that he is a real stickler for details. He also has an incredible understanding of proportions and the interplay of light with different surfaces under different conditions. The result is a watch that is dramatically over-engineered for the price point it sits at and yet remains elegant and understated."  Monochrome (14 Aug 2017)

"The Ming 17.01 is the brand’s first effort — a simple, though finely-detailed two-hand watch powered by a Swiss-made, hand-wound movement from Sellita. The case is made from grade 5 titanium and comes in at just 38mm in diameter and 9.3mm thick, while the dial — available in gray or blue — features an engraved checker-like pattern in the center and applied numerals, giving what would be an otherwise simple timepiece a nice sense of depth." Gear Patrol (15 Aug 2017)

"At $900 it’s in some very competitive territory, but the finish, manufacturing, and visual dynamism on display here is hard to match for under $1,000." Worn and wound (16 Aug 2017)

"The 17.01 is an innovative piece that shows a progressive “outsider’s” perspective. There are still elements of traditional watchmaking evident throughout the piece, with nods to some of the leading independent designers like Stepan Sarpaneva, F. P. Journe and Kari Voutilainen — but at its core, the 17.01’s design is quite radical." Time+Tide Watches (16 Aug 2017)
