Our first ever precious metal offering had to be something special: so we retained a small number of the La Joux Perret LJP5000.M1 monopusher movements which were completely reworked and refinished in rose gold. Coupled with our love of chronographs, it made sense for us to start from this base.

We went all in on the concept: the watch would be a jewel-like, monolithic block of metal, scintillating and warm. 18K 5N rose gold was the ideal material for the case and dial, to complement the movement and give the impression of solid continuity. The overall construction of the watch remains the same as the original 37.04 Titanium, with the guilloched dial by Comblemine now made from a single thick piece of 18K 5N rose gold and topped with an etched and HyCeram filled sapphire upper dial. 

The 37.04 Rose Gold has a new, deeper, and reducing radius guilloche pattern focused on the chronograph minute subdial; it is deliberately asymmetric and focused at the same time. The pattern has extreme relief for maximum visual impact and could only be created using CNC milling as it is too deep for traditional rose engines. It is a very dynamic dial – not just because of the angles of the guilloched surfaces, but also due to the upper sapphire layer that provides transient inversion. All white elements on the dial and crystals are made luminous with various types of Super-LumiNova X1.

All of this is housed in a case of solid 18K 5N rose gold, with our signature flared and twisted lugs. It has multicoated sapphire crystals front and rear, and alternating textured finishes. Manufacture Schwarz-Etienne remains responsible for engineering and final assembly, with our usual partners Jean Rousseau and Koji Sato providing finishing touches.

MING continually aims to improve product wherepossible to improve aesthetics and functionality; to this end we reserve theright to make minor changes prior to final delivery.

This guide applies to the following watches/ variants:

  • 37.04 MONOPUSHER

Winding & power reserve:

  • The 37.04 Monopusher is equipped with a hand/manual winding LJP 5000.M1 movement.
  • This movement has a ~38 hour power reserve when fully wound.
  • The movement can be wound by turning the crown clockwise (away from you).
  • The movement is equipped with a hard stop, to avoid overwinding. When you feel a resistance or a point beyond which the crown will not turn, please stop winding.
  • Forcing the crown past this point will damage the mainspring and result in the watch requiring an out-of-warranty service.

Setting the time:

The crown has two positions:

  • The first position (pushed all the way in) is where the crown should be for wearing and to ensure water resistance. The watch can also be hand wound in this position.
  • The second position (one click out) allows for the setting of the hour and minute hands. Once the time is set, please push the crown back in to ensure water resistance.
  • Please stop the chronograph before setting the hour and minute hands.

Operating the chronographe:

  • To start, stop and reset the chronograph, push the pusher on the crown at 3 o' clock.
  • Avoid pulling out the crown while the chronographe is still running.
  • Do not operate the chronograph pusher while underwater.

Other useful information:

  • The best way to clean the watch is with a soft, clean and damp cloth. We strongly discourage the use of any cleaning agents or solutions.
  • We use different formulations and techniques to apply lume on the dials, hands, crystal and other components etc. This results in a slight difference in the peak brightness and length of luminesence between the two. This is normal.
  • Modern luminous material requires charging to work effectively. Lume can be charged with direct exposure to bright sunlight or a strong light source such as a LED torch. The stronger the light source, the faster lume charges.
