Can I say,

After a / an one-hour break in the afternoon, we all went home.

The word "one" is pronounced like "won."

So which word do you think you use: a or an?

(Why wouldn't you go home at the start of the break? We stopped work for an hour. Then, when that hour was over, even though we were still at work, we went home. If you are going to leave immediately after the break, just leave when you start the break.)
I choose "a". Am I right?
