2018 MING 17.03 GMT - Ultra Blue Limited Edition



Sold out and permanently retired. This watch will not be produced again.


Celebrating our first birthday – with something special

The Ultra Blue features a titanium case individually heat blued in house by Ming Thein. Each case is unique due to the nature of the process; they show hints of purple, cyan and dark blue and continuously change character when handled. The crown is engraved by hand. We fitted a new sunburst metallic blue dial, together with an updated sapphire ring and new satin beadblasted hands filled with Super-LumiNova. Finally, the watch is completed with a handmade dark blue alcantara strap by Jean Rousseau Paris, and matching heat-blued titanium pin buckle.

Like its siblings in the 17.03 line, the Ultra Blue is powered by the automatic Sellita SW330-1 with independently adjustable second time zone indicator, is adjusted in five positions and run through a 250-hour test program.

The Ultra Blue case retains the same unique lugs that allow for both curved and straight springbar fitting - making it a versatile watch and compatible with standard 20mm aftermarket straps.
