  • Catalogue Essay

    MING is an incredibly creative micro brand whose first watch was launched in 2017 and has ever since hit a chord with collectors. Making only a handful of watches in small series each model is sold out within minutes of being released.

    The brand takes the name of one of its founders and core drivers: Ming Thein, a physicist by training, and a world renowned photographer. A long time watch collector, he decided that he wanted to create his own brand and offer a watch impeccably made but at a very competitive price point.

    The present H41 dive watch is incredibly well conceived and bears the signature designs found on all MING watches: flared lugs, architectural dial, use of super Luminova and a general minimalistic design.

    A dive watch with an incredible water resistance of 1000 meters….that’s 1KM (!) it nevertheless maintains restrained proportions of 40mm in diameter, 12.9mm thick and weighing a mere 65g thanks to its titanium case.

    The dial is also impressively designed with a two level sapphire construction with HyCeram Super-LumiNova XI (a luminous ceramic composite).

    The H41 is not a limited edition per se but only 125 examples were made, all were sold out and the model discontinued.

  • Artist Biography

    Ming

    British • 1975

    Ming Lampson was born in Sydney, grew up in Hong Kong, and settled in London.  Some 20 years ago, her love of gemstones led her to Jaipur, where she apprenticed with a goldsmith and worked with gem dealers, learning about coloured gems. Returning to London, she studied jewellery-making, diamond-grading, and coloured stones and pearls with the GIA.  Since then, Ming has worked as a private jeweller, creating one-of-a-kind bespoke jewels for a select clientèle.   Her early years in Hong Kong gave her both her Chinese name and an enduring fascination with the East. So that when, more recently, she created two themed collections, Oriental Garden and Reverence for Nature, both were Orientalist in inspiration. Her designs are imaginative, her craftsmanship traditional and meticulous and all her jewellery is hand-made in her own workshops in London.
