Points of Mention
This watch is sold with its original Ming box and Ming paperwork and is also sold in unworn condition. The watch comes paired on its original Ming signed strap with signed buckle. The watch is from December 2019 and is sold in unworn condition. The watch comes with its original manufacturer warranty.
I've been very fortunate to know some incredible collectors with incredible watches and have handled a fair few Ming's, however, this is my first for sale and I have to say, I absolutely love it! There is so much hype around the brand at the moment and it is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon, whilst this can be had brand new and unworn, I think its a great opportunity and I feel the prices could continue to rise!
