    Dials to die for - the new ones from AnOrdain

    I've just received the email from AnOrdain announcing Fumé dials for the Model 1. I am smitten.

    Lovely indeed!

    Remove all the markings (a la Moser), a better hand set, remove the seconds hand and we get close to something I'd consider buying (not a fan of the case tbh). The fume looks great but wish I could get onboard with the rest...

    I like the green dialled one.

    Dear God those dials look amazing! I need to subscribe to their newsletter I was planning on picking up one of their watches in the new year.

    I like that they are doing something different and they have a clear identity. The enamel looks great on these and the mark 1 case is the nicest they do. I'd therefore be seriously tempted, but sadly I don't really like the hands (the minute hand could at least be a bit longer), the font or the even only numbers on the dial. I'd prefer all numbers or stick indices.

    They do absolutely nothing for me whatsoever, but I am glad they do for some people.

    The dials are absolutely lovely, beautiful effects and (I’m sure) fabulous depth when on the wrist.

    Like others, I struggle with the dial markers and hand design; definitely distinctive, I’m just not quite sure I like them...

    I like what they're doing but, to me, a 2-4-8-10 dial shouldn't have a 6 on it.

    Agree on this and also the 12 should be removed and have some sort of other marking. Having minutes on the dial is entirely unnecessary as well. Less is more!

    I love the dials and the people behind anOrdain seem wonderful. If they would offer a classic, thin-cased watch with dauphine or stick hands, I would be all over it.

    I can't make up my mind on the dials - In some photos they look matt and ordinary (the OP for example) and in others much more interesting.



    I guess this is something you'd need to see in person to really appreciate.

    Massive variability in how a dial looks in pics can suggest a quality that is very dynamic and bewitching when seen in a hand. GS etc....

    The green dial is screaming for a bronze case.

    Very nice design and good to support a UK company that's genuinely doing something unique

    The new dials look superb. I’ve got a red dialled Model one and I only have great things to say about both the watch and AnOrdain.
