New release by MING - The MING 18.01 Abyss Concept
At 40mm in diameter and less than 14mm in height (46mm L2L), the MING 18.01 Abyss Concept for the first time uses stainless steel as its case material, former MING watches were made of titanium.
Another obvious change and novelty to MING is the use of a seconds hand. MING went for a rock solid ETA 2824-2 which is missing the date wheel. The modification was done by La Division du Temps (Schwarz-Etienne owned) in addition to this the movements are adjusted to five positions.
In addition to the sapphire crystal, the outer edge of the dial is actually crafted of composite sapphire – similar to what has been used in 17.01 and 17.03 MING models.
The Abyss Concept is made in Switzerland and will be available from Friday, 28 June exclusively at www.ming.watch. Each of the ten watches is priced at CHF 6,500 and deliveries begin immediately.
