For no matter purpose, anOrdain is a model you is probably not conversant in. If there’s anybody purpose, it’s in all probability as a result of they’re solely producing 400 to 500 watches per 12 months from their services in Glasgow, Scotland. Today, they’re asserting a refresh of a design first seen in 2019, and providing up the anOrdain Model 2 MKII.
The anOrdain Model 2 MKII is what is named a area watch, providing a easy and rugged design – positively kind following operate. Even provided that, anOrdain has elevated the lowly design. The most charming a part of it’s the truth that they’ve gone with a vitreous enamel dial, which is able to give a depth and sheen that you’ll not discover in any easy pad-printed dial. Over that elegant base, they’ve utilized alternating numerals (the evens) and indices, with an entire minute observe, guaranteeing you’ll be able to simply inform the time.
It’s over that dial that we discover the second component of the anOrdain Model 2 MKII that actually sings, being the handset. Though the fingers are largely open (or skeletonized, in case you want) they’ve SuperLuminova ideas set into them, guaranteeing that the time is indicated fairly clearly, whether or not the room is mild or darkish.
All of that is beneath a sapphire crystal set into the case of the anOrdain Model 2 MKII. Speaking of, you’ve bought two decisions for the case. The medium is available in at a really compact 36mm, whereas the massive is a still-svelte 39.5mm; each are simply 11mm thick. Inside that case beats a Sellita SW-210 motion, stored dry to a 50m WR ranking by the screw-down crown.
In brief, the anOrdain Model 2 MKII is likely one of the most elegant and inventive takes that I’ve seen of a area watch in a while, whereas nonetheless managing to not lose the thread of what makes a area watch up. While these should not going to be restricted manufacturing, there nonetheless will solely be 200 made per 12 months. In different phrases, if you would like one, get your order in sooner somewhat than later, otherwise you’ll be ready. How a lot, I hear you ask?
