Nomos Glashütte

What began with three employees and a few freelancers in a three-bedroom apartment in Glashütte has long since become a successful midsized business. Founded by Roland Schwertner in 1990, NOMOS Glashütte brought the first four hand-wound watches onto the market in 1992: Tangente, Orion, Ludwig, and Tetra—which are now classics.
