MING Marks One-Year Anniversary With Two Limited Editions In Blue
First, let’s meet MING 17.03 Blue that features the regular brushed grade 2 titanium 38mm case powered by the automatic Sellita SW330-1 with 42-hour power reserve. The movement has undergone a 250-hour test programme to ensure its reliability that includes the competence of the independently adjustable central 24-hour disc that tells time in a second time zone.
Nevertheless, there are a couple of new features such as the sunburst metallic blue dial and the Superluminova hands that has been satin beadblasted. Limited to 125 pieces, it comes with two nubuck straps in chocolate or anthracite, as well a matching titanium quick-release bracelet.

More fascinating is MING 17.03 Ultra Blue that boasts a titanium case that has been heated to achieve a brilliant shade of “ultra-blue” with hints of purple, cyan and dark blue.
To match this cerulean splendour, French watch strap specialist Jean Rousseau Paris was enlisted to create a dark blue alcantara strap; the titanium buckle is also blue-heated. Also limited to 25 pieces, it comes with two additional strap options, chocolate or anthracite nubuck leather.
