Everyday Carry: Burgundy & Oak

EDC Burgundy and Oak 0 Hero

Presented by

On the eastern portion of France lies the Burgundy region, which is known for its eponymous red wine, which is made from pinot noir grapes and the most terroir-conscious of all French varietals. In fact, the wine is so revered that it’s come to represent the color of the same name. This EDC loadout also showcases the color burgundy, as well as hints of the brown oak barrels that the vin ages inside.

MING 17.09

MING 1709

For the past six years, Malaysian micro-brand MING has been one of the hottest in the game. Featuring the company’s beautiful and unique design language, their watches come out in limited editions and sell out within hours, if not minutes. MING’s watches are so difficult to obtain on their initial runs that it seems like eBay is the perfect marketplace for getting your own crack at owning one of these timepieces. Plus any listing boasting eBay’s Authenticity Guarantee will be checked by a team of experts to ensure it is, in fact, an authentic model. Among our favorites is the 17.09 series, especially in this burgundy colorway. Featuring a two-piece dial with a Clous-de-Paris pattern in the center and the indices placed on the underside of the crystal, this watch is housed in a 38mm steel case with a Swiss-made Sellita movement.
