MING 17.06 - Monolith

This year’s run of 125 watches is all sold out for now. Please sign up for our mailing list at the bottom of the page if you’d like to stay updated on future production for the MING 17.06 Monolith. 


SOLD OUT


Value, evolved

It is impossible for us to forget the response to our maiden 17.01: to this day we receive regular enquiries even though the last of the line has long sold out. To improve on that base and still deliver the same outstanding value has been a challenge that has taken us through two years and four model lines to arrive at the new MING 17.06.

The 17.06 Monolith is a stealthier interpretation with a matte black dial and anthracite DLC beadblasted case. It shares dial markings, hands and proportions with the 17.06 Copper - right down to the Super-LumiNova C1 for a distinctive nocturnal signature.

Thorough reengineering

It is our first series production piece offered in 316L stainless steel for added heft and wrist presence. The all-new rigid case without spacers is water resistant to 100m and constructed with an internally fixed bezel for easy assembly and service. Machining tolerances of 10 microns allow for a crisp 20 micron edge bevel and double lug holes accommodate the wearer’s choice of both straight and curved springbar straps.

Powered by a self-winding ETA 2824-2 modified to have two crown positions and regulated in five positions; assembly and quality control is now performed by La Division du Temps, a division of Manufacture Schwarz Etienne. Final checks on every watch are performed by the MING team in Kuala Lumpur, and the package is completed with a handmade strap by Jean Rousseau Paris and leather travel pouch hand-sewn by Studio Koji Sato.

Can I request a specific serial number?

Sorry - we are not able to accommodate serial number requests.

Can the delivery of my watch be moved to an earlier batch?

Watches are delivered in the same sequence that we receive orders/payments - to move delivery forward to an earlier batch would be unfair to everybody else and as such, is not a request we can accommodate.
