MING 17.03 GMT - Blue dial, with Straps

All prices in CHF

The MING 17.03 Blue is a limited edition of 125 pieces celebrating our first anniversary. Once sold out, it will not be produced again.

We will begin shipping late August and aim to finish by late September.

Recognizably 17 – with a little extra

The MING 17.03 retains all of the design cues that define the 17 series unique: three-part textured and sapphire dials with ‘floating’ numerals; flared lugs; circular symmetry and a classically proportioned case. The case is machined from grade 2 titanium, and exclusive to Blue and Ultra Blue editions, now sports an intense sunburst blue dial with a new sapphire ring and hands.

A versatile companion

We challenged ourselves to define the essentials we sought in a travel companion, and narrowed it down to an easily adjustable second timezone; versatility of style to fit a wide variety of settings and match a range of attire, and grab-and-go ease. The 17.03 therefore adds a second 24-hour indicator integrated into the dial and marked by a luminous star, and the Sellita SW330-1 automatic movement. The second timezone can be adjusted independent of the main (local) time.

Machined entirely in grade 2 titanium, and At 38mm diameter it is a light, comfortable watch. We include two nubuck straps with every MING 17.03 - which are our signature quick release and come with buckles fitted.  We have also retained the rigid case construction without spacer rings, and water resistance remains at 100m.

Reengineered to a higher level

Though the 17.03 appears to be a very close relative of the 17.01, we have in fact completely re-examined and re-engineered every single element of the watch and upgraded all components. The hands and dial markings now have a much thicker fill of Super-LumiNova; a five-layer antireflective coating is applied to both sides of the sapphire crystal and the lugs have been reprofiled and lengthened. 

We recognize that no matter how many straps we offer, every collector desires variety and individualization – and so, in addition to our signature curved end straps, the 17.03 can now also accommodate standard 20mm straight end straps.

Even the packaging has not escaped our attention: we are now using smaller, more environmentally friendly external packaging and a handmade calf leather pouch lined with microfiber ultrasuede from Thirtyfour Bespoke in Kuala Lumpur. It can accommodate one watch on a bracelet or two watches on straps, together with spare straps, the included bracelet/ springbar tool, and warranty card.
