You are looking at a MING 27.02 delivered July 2021 (MING come with a 24 month warranty). This model features the legendary super movement, ETA 7001, extra thin and accurate. This is the thinnest watch by MING and very good for dressy and business occasions.
The heavily modified ETA 7001 movement features numerous special movement parts that were customized by MING. MING used the basic architecture of the 7001 for its reliability and ease of maintenance, but installed customized permanent parts that really transform this watch to a much higher level watch. This translates to; you have easy serviceability as the ETA movement is easy to service and parts are readily available. And yet, the permanent parts such as plates and bridges have all been customized by MING to give this movement a special appearance and finishing. It is overall built to a much higher standard than the base ETA movement.
The dial is also a special sapphire dial that features an inky look with a graduation to the edge of the dial. It gives the watch a modern ochre appearance. At the edge, the transparency of the dial shows a guilloche texture.
The owner, a close friend whom I represent, bought this watch because of his attraction to the legendary movement but also the design and execution of MING. Unfortunately, it has not received any wrist time, other than wearing the watch being tried on once at home. Thus, the original and first owner has decided to allow this watch to find a home where it can be enjoyed by another. Limited to only 200 pieces worldwide, this watch is definitely a special watch for a discerning individual.
SPECIAL DETAILS: Seller is also including a second strap with the purchase.
Condition: Watch is in NEW condition, and has been gently and carefully worn only once in the original owner's home for a short duration. Watch has never been polished. No case damage, never dropped, watch runs well. Sapphire crystal has no chips nor scratches and is in PERFECT condition. The bezel is in PERFECT condition and shows the watch was never polished. Strap is in EXCELLENT condition (strap has been used once) and the tang clasp is in AS-NEW condition. Unlike a watch that is offered at an auction house or at a dealer, this watch will not show any of the aforementioned wear and tear associated with auction houses or dealers.

Much appreciated. 4. Trades are generally not welcome due to the complication factor, the fact I represent this watch on behalf of a close friend, and because most people value their trades very highly, trades are usually not a win-win.

Please consider selling your watch at your valuation and come back to me.
