MING is a horological collective founded by six enthusiasts from around the world under the leadership of Ming Thein, a photographer, designer, business person, and, above all, a lover of watches.
MING’s focus on quality and refinement, combined with affordability, consistently results in finished watches that punch well above their price point. MING has been recognized by the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève in 2018, 2019, and 2020.
MB&F is an artistic and micro-engineering laboratory dedicated to designing and crafting small series of radical concept watches by bringing together talented horological professionals that Maximilian Büsser both respects and enjoys working with.
By nurturing teams of talented individuals, harnessing their passion and creativity and crediting each person’s essential role, MB&F uses their synergy to become much greater than the sum of its parts. Respecting tradition, but never constrained by it, they reinterpret traditional, high-quality watchmaking into three-dimensional kinetic sculptures.
For 175 years, L’Epée has been at the forefront of watch and clock making. Today, it is the premiere manufacture in Switzerland dedicated to making high-end clocks.

Today, L’Epée is creating horological sculptures, timekeeping sights, and wacky Table watches, giving the experienced aficionados of the world a way out that many consciously or subconsciously have been looking for.
