Welcome to the Scottish Watches Podcast – Episode 336! A very Scottish episode awaits you because we finally got Lewis Heath founder of the Glasgow based watch brand, anOrdain on. This humble guy managed to make the art of enamel dials accessible to people under $2000.
The dials are hand made in Scotland and the typography was also developed in house based on maps of the anOrdain area. We go through the origins of the idea, how it took off, how doing something right is not so easy, and what is the future of their manufacturer.
