Here we have a 2023 Ming 22.01 GMT Kyoto Titanium Automatic with a 38mm Grade 5 Titanium sculpted case that curves over your wrist with the characteristic flared scalloped lugs. With the increase in global travelling Ming wanted to bring back a GMT watch not seen since 2018. A lug-to-lug length of 44mm and a case thickness of 10.5mm ensure a comfortable fit, the monobloc case is completely milled out to fit the movement perfectly without the need for a spacer ring. A signed crown with deep knurling for extra grip is on the right side. The bevel-edged brushed and polished smooth concave bezel holds a domed sapphire crystal double-sided AR coated above a multi-layered Kyoto, a dark green outer ring and a grey centre dial, inspired by the colours and textures of traditional Japanese gardens. The 24-hour GMT chapter ring has silver numerals and sits on top of a sapphire overlay on the grain-textured base metal dial, the floating appearance plays with the light as you rotate your wrist, and laser-etched hour indexes are applied to the underside of the crystal-coated in HyCeram X1 (a mixture of SuperLumiNova and Ceramic). The curvaceous hands are coated in SuperLumiNova X1 and are complemented by a tapered colour-coded Kyoto GMT hand, at 12 o’clock we have the Ming motif completing this dynamic dress watch. On the reverse a screwed-down exhibition case back with the details of the watch engraved around its edge, showcasing the automatic Ming Cal. 330M2, 25 jewels, beating at 28,800 beats per hour, assembled by Manufacture Schwarz-Etienne in Switzerland, this movement is based on the Sellita SW330-2, a custom-finished skeletonised rotor and an independently adjusted GMT hand in hourly increments when you pull the crown out to its second position and turn it unidirectionally. The watch comes paired with a 20mm Jean Rousseau Paris, barenia leather strap with a signed pin buckle, and the watch comes with its Ming presentation box, travel pouch and papers.
It's great to see the GMT back with this Ming 22.01 GMT Kyoto green in Titanium! The 38mm Titanium case is incredibly light and with the short 44mm lug-to-lug length it wears incredibly well and compact on any wrist size, that is one area Ming has perfected, case proportions. This dial is fantastic, as you would expect from Ming and the Kyoto Green used is perfect, almost black in some lights and a deep green in others.
