Based in Glasgow’s Templeton Building, our multidisciplinary team of designers and makers oversee all elements of our watches, from design, to manufacture and assembly.
The founding idea behind anOrdain is that designing and manufacturing should be intertwined under one roof. Some of our best ideas come from trying one thing and discovering another, and the loop between designing and making is at the very heart of who we are.
We’d argue that what makes anOrdain special is our team’s diverse mixture of skills and talents, and our collaborative approach to design. Of our 15-strong team, eight are trained designers, and we engage each person’s discipline to design, prototype and manufacture in-house.
The idea for a watch company that could fuse contemporary design with traditional craft first occurred to Lewis many years ago, while he was visiting Loch an Ordain, a remote lochan in the Scottish Highlands.
