Since the Malaysian watchmaker’s launch in 2017, Ming has become one of the most revered microbrands within the industry, and now four years on it’s finally introducing its first-ever moonphase model: the 37.05.

Maintaining the company’s sleek and minimalist design language, the new timepiece carries a two-layered dial within its elegant 38mm stainless steel case. The bottom piece is constructed from a textured metal that blends from midnight blue to black, with the upper layer consisting of a clear sapphire dial carrying HyCeram indexes made from luminous accents on a ceramic composite. The moonphase itself is displayed right below the hour hands, but unlike traditional indicators, Ming’s innovative design shows the different phases of the moon through a ring-shaped aperture, which completes entirely when it’s a full moon.

Powering the watch is then a highly modified Sellita SW288 by Schwartz-Etienne, now boasting a skeletonized design with matte-blasted and anthracite-plated components complemented by rhodium accents. The entire look is completed by a black Barenia leather strap by Jean Rousseau Paris, paired with a “flying blade” buckle with micro-adjustments.

For those interested, the first 150 pieces of the Ming 37.05 moonphase watch will open for orders for the brand’s existing customers on November 25 over on the company’s website. The remaining 35o will be available to everybody else on November 26. The price tag is CHF 4,950, or roughly $5,300 USD.

Elsewhere in watches, Shinola has introduced the brand’s first-ever automatic chronograph.
