After the limited edition produced for Hodinkee, anOrdain once again presents the Model 3 in two new variants that join its regular collection.
As is usual for the Scottish watchmaking brand, the new watches feature craftsmanship enamel dials that were developed here with Method Studio (MS), which specialises in woodworking.
The textured dials, which took four years to develop, were inspired by the wooden whiskey boxes hand-carved by MS and which attempt to recreate a carved block of wood. It was through a complex and phased process that it was possible to obtain a steel mould capable of shaping the silver dials, which were subsequently enamelled, painted by hand and subjected to various stages of firing and polishing until the final result.
Between the two variants, the ‘Aqua’ features a bright blue tone, silver markers and dark blue hands. And the ‘Lichen’ which comes in a faded blue with purple accents and hands. Both watches feature pro-printed hour markers and the brand’s lettering at noon, and heat-treating hands in the shape of a syringe where the skeletonized minute hand is inserted.
On the outside, the watch wears a round stainless steel case measuring 39mm in diameter and 10.50mm thick with inwardly inclined lugs, featuring a uniform polished finish, domed sapphire glass, solid case back, fluted push-pull crown at 3 o’clock and 50m water resistance.
Powered by the Sellita SW300-1 automatic movement, it reaches 28,800 Bph and offers up to 42 hours of power reserve.
The watch comes attached to a leather strap with numerous colours available and is priced at €4,195 (excluding VAT).
