The Model 1 with Glasgow-made fumé enamel dial, seen here in Payne's Grey. anOrdain developed this painstaking technique over several years, refining it recently to exaggerate its smoky effect and add more depth to the outer perimeter.
Outside of Switzerland and Japan, we’re one of the only watchmakers in the world producing enamel dials in-house. Our enamelling studio has been operating since 2015, housed in a purpose-built facility in the East End of Glasgow, UK.
Unique depth of colour
This smoky grey takes its name from the painter William Payne, who invented and popularised the practice of combining coloured paint pigments to create a deep, shadowy alternative to the colour black.
Heat treated hands
Our enamellers and watchmakers applied themselves to master the craft of heat tempering steel. The hands are individually polished, and then carefully tempered to create an even and consistent ‘straw’ finish.
Numerals and indices
Inspired by cartographic maps of the Highlands, the numerals and indices on the Model 1 Fumé are enhanced by the dial’s fuliginous edge.
Our enamel dials are between two and three times the thickness of a standard painted brass watch dial. At only 11mm in depth, we've designed the case to showcase and protect the dial whilst fitting comfortably under a cuff.
Choice of fitted straps
We offer a variety of materials and sizes to suit your needs. All of our straps are made in Germany by a company which has been in business for over 70 years. See our strap fitting guide.

The solid case back allows us to offer bespoke case engraving. Simply select the case engraving option and choose from either textual or topographical personalisation.
