MING 17.06 - Copper

This year’s run of 300 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 Copper. 


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 Copper presents a classical colour scheme in clean and restrained modern forms; from hour markings to case geometry. It is a considered study in textures and light: a warm etched copper dial contrasts against the polished-brushed case, multiple dial layers, and reflections off the sapphire ring from which luminous hour markers appear suspended. Polished hands are set close to the dial for minimal parallax, with just 0.3mm clearance to the crystal underside. Both dial and hands are loaded with 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.

Is the dial made from Copper and will it patina over time?

The dial on the MING 17.06 Copper is brass that is anodised to the same colour as copper. It will not patina over time. 

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.
