For our contribution to the cause, we’ve created a unique piece reminiscent of vintage, mid-century timepieces with our interpretation of a linen dial. Not only was this a style we’d never tried before, but the textile-effect of linen dials refers to the texture of ribbon fibre, alluding to the international symbol for Breast Cancer Awareness, the Pink Ribbon. To add to its allure on auction day, our Pink Dial also provides several sneak peeks of what to expect from our upcoming third watch, the Model 3. The Dial Defined by their crosshatched pattern, linen dials became prominent roughly around the 1940s, with their fabric-like texture created through processes such as engraving.

A Message From the Brand
This is probably our most significant piece to date. It shows the team’s burgeoning technical ability - the dial is the first combination of linen and enamel I know of, the hands are formed from solid red-gold, as well as a very well considered and intelligent approach to design. On a personal level, I lost my dad to cancer last year, and so creating this watch has had an extra meaning for me, and I’m very grateful for the opportunity - so thank you Wei and David Sharp, and the team at anOrdain.
