anOrdain Model 1 with a 'British-Made' Enamel Dial

Post by Racer-X » September 6th 2018, 10:44pm

"A watch startup run by six young people, anOrdain’s debut watch is a time-only automatic with a vitreous enamel dial, produced by the brand’s very own enamellers.

Based in Glasgow, Scotland, the brand gets its name from Loch An Ordain, a highland lake. Though the watch is simple, it boasts several notable details, including a custom typeface for the hour markers based on old British Ordnance Survey maps.

The dial is made of traditional fired enamel, or grand feu enamel in Swiss watchmaking parlance, which means the copper dial is first painted with ground enamel powder and then fired in an oven to melt the powder and set it. The markings on the dial are then pad printed on the glossy, translucent enamel."
