Nomos was founded in 1990, just after Germany’s reunification happened with the fall of the Berlin Wall and the USSR collapsed. Based in the Glashutte region, it takes inspiration from the Bauhaus design movement. To have Glashutte on the dial, Nomos has to meet stringent quality standards. They must create at least 50% of the watch calibre in Glashutte to receive the title of being a true Glashutte watch. They only use in-house manufactured movements built up to 95% in the region, surpassing that requirement.
The 40mm polished stainless steel case has slim angled lugs. Lug to lug length of 51mm and a thickness of 11mm ensures a comfortable fit on your wrist. On the right side, a signed screw-down crown with crown guards. A polished bezel holds a flat sapphire crystal. The dial is so perfect, it is a deep blue that can look black in some lights, then with a twist of the wrist a vibrant blue to a subtle grey. If you catch the crystal just right you get the anti-reflective coating that adds another dimension. The elongated Arabic numerals are reminiscent of early Bauhaus watches. At 6 o’clock a sub-seconds register with a red hand and a framed date window just underneath, creating a seamless symmetry. Slender sword hands are coated in luminescence. On the reverse, a screwed-down exhibition case. Inside an Automatic Nomos DUW 5101, 27 jewels, 21,600 beats per hour. The bi-directional rotor increases the accuracy of the in-house movement. Decorated in Glashütte striping and NOMOS perlage. The watch comes fitted on its NOMOS 20mm strap with a signed buckle and comes with its NOMOS presentation box and papers
