Ming 17.09 Blue
Introducing the Ming 17.09 Blue Version 2.0: an upgraded version of the popular daily wear timepiece with enhanced functionality and design refinements. This new iteration features laser-etched, lume-filled sapphire indices that sit beneath the top crystal and illuminate with captivating intensity. The indices are inspired by Ming's graphic design language and are complemented by a striking new handset derived from the 20.01 Chronographs, adding a bold touch to the dial.
The dial of the Ming 17.09 Blue Version 2.0 has a two-piece construction, with a fine Clous-de-Paris pattern in the center and a circular brushed outer portion. This design creates a dynamic visual presentation that responds dynamically to changes in ambient light. The watch is encased in polished and brushed 316L stainless steel, with proportional revisions to enhance its wrist presence while maintaining its wearable 38mm size, catering to a diverse range of wrist sizes. The lugs have been reprofiled with a continuous twist, extending the brushing seamlessly from the case flanks to the underside of the lugs, preserving Ming's signature aesthetic flair.
In addition to cosmetic enhancements, the Ming 17.09 Blue Version 2.0 features an exclusive independent hour hand adjustment mechanism developed in collaboration with Manufacture Schwarz-Etienne. Based on the Sellita SW330-2 movement, this modification allows for the independent adjustment of the hour hand, offering added convenience for users. With functions including hours and minutes, along with an independently adjustable hour hand, this timepiece exemplifies versatility and practicality.
Paired with a handmade strap by Jean Rousseau Paris, featuring black alcantara with blue alcantara lining, and equipped with a signed flying blade pin buckle, the Ming 17.09 Blue Version 2.0 combines style with functionality. This watch represents excellence in watchmaking craftsmanship.
