We learnt to enamel using white, so it seemed an obvious first choice when choosing colours. But there’s just something special about the Iron Cream; it’s clean and crisp like white, but has a warmth and a creamy richness which couldn’t be further from a cold white.
We’ve finished the hands in a polished black nickel to contrast with the dial and match the hour markings.
There is no other way of rendering colour which comes close to vitreous (or grand feu) enamel, nor is there another which simply won’t fade over time. It’s as difficult as it is rewarding and perhaps it was the challenge of mastering one of the great crafts of watchmaking, as much as the end product, which drew us to this ancient art.

The Model 1 is a simple watch. A three handed automatic in a 38mm polished steel case with a gentle double domed sapphire, showcasing the beautiful enamel dial at its core. Every part of the watch, with the exception of the movement, is completely bespoke.
