It’s been three years in the making, but the MING 18.01 H41 was well worth the wait. This model is MING’s interpretation of a diver watch even though it looks nothing like a typical expression of that type of timepiece. The 40mm case offers an astounding water-resistance rating of up to 1,000 meters. Lightweight yet durable grade 5 titanium make up the case and the unidirectional rotating bezel. That bezel functions as a timing mechanism with 60 clicks in each rotation that are separated into four 15-minute sections, so keeping track of those passing moments with accuracy is easy to do. After all, when you’re underwater every second is precious.
Schwarz-Etienne modified its calibre ETA2824-2 automatic movement especially for MING to be at the core of the 18.01 H41. The 25 jewel studded movement offers a power reserve of 40 hours. The release of the MING 18.01 H41 was eagerly anticipated. While it sold out in a flash, the diver watch is slated to be back in stock on August 22.
