MING 37.07 Mosaic
When MING unveiled the original Mosaic in 2020, there was a lot of demand to have something similar in a more accessible model. Given the nature of the sapphire-based process however, this is not possible as each mosaic dial costs quite a bit more than an entire 17-series watch to produce. But the requests didn’t stop, and MT never stopped working on a visually similar–and yet, unique–process to try and bring the same depth to a larger audience.
The brand's fifth anniversary feels like an appropriate time to share the results of these efforts.
Back to the roots
Enter 37.07: a retrospective, matured take on the same daily wearing, horologically solid concept that gave birth to the very first watch, the 17.01. The 37.07 is reductivist, radially symmetric, layered, nuanced, has a central texture, a hand wind movement, and sits at an accessible point in the lineup. It remains a collaborative effort with Manufacture Schwarz-Etienne for engineering and assembly.
Evolution, refinement and interactivity
The similarities end there however as it’s also much more than that. It has a complex case that requires multi-axis machining to create and finish the lug twist that extends from case flanks to the bottom of the lugs.
The case is in 316L stainless steel for more wrist presence and now has a sapphire caseback to display the hand-winding SW210.M1 in a configuration unique – some of you may correctly recognize this as sharing a base with the 37.05 Moonphase. It’s still an inclusively wearable 38mm in diameter but wears much larger thanks to the minimal bezel; all the better to show off the new dial as well.
A glowing heart
The star of the show – the dial – uses Super-LumiNova set on the centre of a brass dial; with the outer portion circular brushed. The inner portion of the dial hosts a three-layer printed mosaic (on upper, lower surfaces of the sapphire and the lower brass dial). The mosaic pattern comprises gradient and luminous elements as well. The result is layered, deep, luminous, and inversive at the same time – as has become brand's signature.
Continuing to address accessibility
As this is MING's fifth anniversary special and to make the 37.07 as accessible as possible, the atelier once again implementing a time-limited order process. Watches will be available to purchase in two windows:
- 29 July from 2AM to 2.15AM GMT, and
- 29 July from 1PM to 1.15PM GMT
All orders placed during these two windows are guaranteed a watch.
The 37.07 is priced at CHF 3,250, with a 50% non-refundable deposit (CHF 1,625) required on order. The balance is due on delivery, which we expect to begin in May 2023. Conclusion of deliveries depends on the final volume and may continue through the end of 2023.
