Ming is definitely one of the most interesting independent watchmakers out there and the brand continues their momentum with their first ever dive watch. Designed as a limited edition concept, Ming's Abyss Concept doesn't stick to traditional dive watch design themes and instead introduces an aesthetic that looks straight out of science fiction. The 40mm watch is the company's first timepiece in stainless steel and features a unidirectional polished bezel with a ceramic insert and a unique and intuitive marker design that indicates elapsed time in minutes for the first fifteen minutes and five-minute divisions for the rest. It also features a depth rating of 1,250m (4,100ft), a crown locking indicator, and an ETA 2824-2 automatic movement with a 38-hour power reserve.
Only ten watches were made and it sold out immediately and the company has yet to decide on whether to officially bring the watch into series production.
