Unlimited limited production  :Laughing_on_floor:

Got a point also there, plenty of fish in the sea so to speak.

 I do find that it is impressive and inspiring though, the fact that a small business is selling well during these trying times. More so that they are local with an international reach, and that they are selling luxury watches, which I see as discretionary items.

all gone in 30 seconds or less so will try again tonight but lowering expectations. Kalau dapat ok, tak dapat pun ok juga. But something is seriously askew in the horology world right now. :Confused:

Apparently Ming sold some 2000 units of the 17.09 over the 10 minute sale period. Not too shabby, collected some RM10 million deposit with a potential RM20 million sales. Kudos to a home bred company. If you wanna succeed you have to sell to the world!

My order serial number is 49xx.

This 17.09 model total sold units could be 5000. 8)

Ming has already said the number is 2,000 units. Anyway, my number also 4,9xx.

Mine is also 49xx, my guess is that this is the total number of Ming watches made thus far....rather than just the 17.09. I am more curious as to whether blue is more popular than burgundy....I bought a burgundy one. Now to wait patiently for at least 12-15 months.

Have a nice day!

The order number represents the total number of watches sold; 17.09 series starts in 3xxx series if I'm not mistaken. I am also curious how many blue v burgundy.

Ming has confirmed via IG that total units ordered is 2000+ and that blue is favoured about 55:45 ratio to burgundy. That means about 1100 blue and 900 burgundy.

it's so perfect. the maroon burgundy is so deep and deflashing dial, make it so distinguished from the rest of micro brands!

Thanks for the pictures bro...It shows a nice evolution of the Ming series.

Now I am "kancheong" for mine to arrive. Full payment made last week and until today not a peep from Ming. I sent an enquiry but no answers yet.  ???
