One of the defining qualities of a Ming watch is its focus on the essence of time, meaning it doesn't believe in cluttering the dial with highfalutin indications. It sticks to what we all look for in a time-telling instrument, an hour and a minute hand with legible hour markers — simple and functional.
This narrative continues with its new 27.01, the spiritual successor to Ming's first watch, the 17.01, and the first watch to feature its second-generation design language. The flying blade lugs and the hour markers (absent of numerals except for the '0' at 12 o'clock), for instance, are new design elements.
In addition, it's also the independent watchmaker's thinnest watch yet at 6.9mm thick. The case is stainless steel for a more tactile experience while the 38mm diameter is suited for all wrist sizes.
