Fumé enamel

The Model 1 is now available with our signature Fumé dial. This painstaking enamelling technique was developed by anOrdain over several years and has now been further refined to exaggerate the smoked effect and add more depth to the outer perimeter. When enamelled, this larger expanse of shadow around the silver dome accentuates the vibrant centre, and interacts perfectly with the Model 1’s minute track.

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. Each hour, minute and second hand is then grouped into a set of three with matching tones.

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.

Slim profile

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.
