Hand crafted enamel

At the heart of the Model 1 is the vitreous enamel dial, which has been the sole focus of one of our in-house enamellers from the initial cutting of the copper blank to the final printing. Each dial takes a minimum of 12 hours and many years of experience to complete.

Outside of Switzerland and Japan, we’re one of the only watchmaker’s 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

The intense and glossy Post Office Red resonates deeply with all of us at anOrdain - how is it we can all have such fond memories of waiting with our mothers in endless queues?

Heat treated hands

With their experience working to precision timing at high temperatures, our enamellers have applied themselves to mastering the craft of heat bluing. In small batches, the hands are carefully tempered to an even and consistent finish.

Numerals and indices

We kept the feel of the original print design, inspired by cartographic maps of the Highlands, making some minor updates to enhance the visual balance and legibility of the dial.

Slim profile

With a sliver of copper sandwiched between up to 7 layers of enamel, our 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.

Bespoke case engraving

The solid case back allows us to offer bespoke case engraving. Simply click ‘Custom engraving’ to enter a personalised message or map engraving.

Choice of straps

We offer straps in 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 here.

ETA 2824-2 Movement

Driven by an ETA 2824-2 movement, this watch can easily be serviced by virtually any watchmaker.
