The Ming ref. 27.01 is a new contender within the horological industry. The 27.01 features a brand new ETA modified movement that brings a new ultra slim quality to their cases.
Although ETA based, the entire movement was redone with only the gear train and escapement being preserved from the original movement. The bridges and plates were redone to the MING standard and the movement architecture was designed with the original “19” series movement in mind. This watch was permanently retired upon release in 2020, in a limited production of 125 pieces.
