MING’s 50-Unit Mosaic Watch Has A Master-Crafted Dial Unlike Any Other

In just four years, Malaysia-based microbrand MING has gone from imaginative upstart to arguably the world’s hottest watch brand. Every new release from the brand pushes their trademark design language further, and their latest watch is no exception.

For the new MING 20.11 Mosaic, an unbelievable amount of work went into creating a dial unlike any other. Using a process developed with DM Surfaces SA of St. Imier over two years, the Mosaic dial was made by using a high-power femtosecond laser on three different levels within a sapphire dial to create 2,650 squares of varying opacity. The result is an ever-changing pattern that really comes alive in lowlight conditions thanks to MING’s signature HyCeram lume application, which is also seen here on sapphire hands. The movement is also impressive as the brand nudges further into haute horology territory. Made by Swiss manufacture Schwarz-Etienne for MING, the Cal. ASE 200.2 has an 86-hour power reserve and is wound by a tungsten micro-rotor. The partially-skeletonized movement is matte-blasted with a black DLC coating and contrasting diamond-cut anglage. Like all MING watches, the 20.11 Mosaic will almost surely sell out immediately, with only 50 examples of the CHF 14,500 (~$15,692) watch being produced for new customers.
