Horologer MING - Watches by MING

Dr Magnus Bosse

Head - Research & Information

Dr. Magnus Bosse is a molecular biologist and diplomat by training, having served many years in the United Nations. His introduction to watches started as a student, after missing a train and venturing into a nearby flea market to kill time. He left the market with a solid gold mechanical wristwatch purchased for the princely sum of €1 (well it did lack a crown), and the rest is history. Since then, Dr. Bosse became a noted writer, with a clear focus on watchmaking technologies and independent watchmakers. Most recently, he published a book on the most complicated wristwatch in the world, the ‘Superbia Humanitatis’ created by Louis Élysée Piguet, Franck Muller and Paul Gerber.

As Head of Research & Information, Magnus is responsible for evaluating new technologies or novel applications to watchmaking, whilst ensuring MING has a robust and comprehensive system for archiving, cataloguing and keeping track of the large number of suppliers, components and processes. He holds a PhD in Molecular Biology from the University of Rostock, Germany and currently lives in Vienna, Austria. His blood type is C for Caffeine and he continues to hold the team record for number of espressos in a day.
