Nomos cools its classic Tangente neomatik with two new ‘platinum’-gray-dialed models offered in two sizes (35mm and 39mm).

The Nomos classic Tangente neomatik is now available in platinum gray. And in two sizes (35mm and 39mm.

The pair expands the number of metallic-dialed Nomos watches just a few months after the German-based independent watchmaker debuted several gold and silver metallic watches.

As the brand’s top-selling, original collection, Tangente is identified by its thin Arabic numerals, slender bezel, coin-shaped steel case and smooth sapphire crystal.

The new pair offers a cooler look for Tangente with a new dial tinged with rhodium, a platinum-family metal that creates a sophisticated gray color. Rhodium also colors the thin hands, which match the slimness of the golden font proclaiming the ‘neomatik’ moniker.

The neomatik series refers to the automatic caliber DUW 3001 that powers the new Tangente pair.

And while most collectors will likely enjoy a clear view of the nicely decorate in-house caliber from the clear caseback, others will opt to save a few dollars by purchasing the solid caseback edition on either size of the new Tangente neomatik platinum grey. Also available with the steel back version is the chance to request that Nomos add a personalized engraving (up to 88 characters) to the back.

With the clear caseback you can observe the proprietary automatic Nomos caliber DUW 3001. A solid caseback edition is also available.

This solid caseback option means the price for the watch will differ by about $400, which for the 35mm model means a choice between a $3,070 model (solid steel back) and a $3,460 model. For the 39mm model, prices are $3,390 (solid steel back) and $3,780.

Just in time for the holiday season, Nomos adds new touches of silver and gold to its Orion collection.

The Nomos Orion 38 Silver, with gold-plated hands and indexes on a silvered dial.

Look for the new members of this minimalist Glashütte classic, namely the new Orion 33 Gold and the Orion 38 Silver, to inject a less-than minimal hint of luxury (or seasonal cheer) to the less-is-more collection.

On the Orion 33 Gold you’ll see gilded small seconds dial and applied indexes. The dial is galvanized and gold-plated.

While both Orion models will still be made with a hand-polished dial and applied indexes, the smaller model is now available with a steel case (instead of silver) and a gold-plated dial. The larger model, also cased in steel, will gleam with a silver-plated domed dial and gold-plated indexes and hands.

Both new Orion debuts are powered by the excellent Nomos Alpha manual-wind caliber, which boasts a 43-hour power reserve. And either watch can ordered with a custom engraving. Price: SEE WEBSITE

 

As Nomos carefully expanded its sports watch offerings in recent years, the German watchmaker has deftly balanced its traditional minimalist tenets with enhanced water-resistance and anti-shock requirements.

The Nomos Club Sport Neomatik 42 and especially the Tangente Sport Neomatik 42 Date Marine, seen first in 2019, offered both those features while also hosting the first-ever Nomos steel bracelet.

Collectors welcomed those sports models with open wrists. Nomos had finally combined its clean dial design spirit with a tougher and larger case design that sported a serious 300 meters of water resistance – all with a sleek steel bracelet.

The new Nomos Club Sport Neomatik 42 Date Blue.

This week Nomos expands its sports offerings with a new Club Sport Neomatik 42 Date Blue. As the name hints, the watch features a new, galvanized blue sunburst dial, which adds a new option to the black-dialed original.

But perhaps more critically, the debut highlights a new integrated steel bracelet that is not only more traditional in style than the first steel bracelet, it also likely enhances its acceptance to sports enthusiasts possibly wary of the original’s open lug design.

Nomos adds a new sunburst finish to the dial of Club Sport Neomatik 42 Date.

Nomos customized the bracelet for this debut, creating a classic brushed and polished three-link design with a folding safety clasp that sits right up against the case. Unlike the earlier bracelet, this one doesn’t allow any wrist to show between the case and the links.

A signal-red ring around the stem of the crown alerts the wearer if the crown is not screwed tight.

The handsome sunburst dial is set with white hands that glow blue and bold in the dark. As on the earlier models, Nomos equips the stem with a red ring that alerts the wearer if the crown is not tightened. Inside Nomos places its patented DUW 6101 date caliber from the Nomos Glashütte neomatik series. In part due to its thinness (at 3.6mm), it is well protected by the case, even with the clear sapphire caseback.

Price: $3,960.

Nomos Glashütte previews its spring releases by debuting three limited-edition 40mm Club automatic models with three new dial colors: olive green, onyx black and blue.

The new Nomos Club automatic in olive green is limited to 175 models in honor of 175 years of fine watchmaking in Glashütte. The watch is also available with onyx and navy dials.

The steel Club Automatic watches, limited to 175 pieces in each color, feature in-house automatic caliber DUW 5001 built with Nomos’ own ‘Swing System’ escapement and adjusted to chronometer standards.

The Nomos special edition Club automatic features automatic caliber DUW 5001, equipped with the proprietary Nomos Swing System adjusted to chronometer standards.

Water resistant to 200 meters and sporty in nature, the Club automatic model is one of Nomos’ most casual designs, with two models (olive green and blue) offered on fabric straps and one, the black (onyx) model, on the brand’s relatively new steel bracelet.

All three watches also exhibit their sportiness with a generous application of luminous material on markers and hands. The dial is highly legible even if it is a bit idiosyncratic with its mix of both Arabic hour markers and ‘sticks’ around the dial, interrupted only at 6 o’clock by the small seconds subdial.

The new limited edition selection follows two previous collections, within the firm’s higher-priced Lambda and Ludwig lines, that celebrate 175 years of watchmaking in Glashütte, the center of German watchmaking.

Prices start at $2,620.

Nomos celebrates Beethoven’s 250th birthday with a square-cased Tetra Divine Spark watch made with a copper-hued dial. The color is meant to elevate the wearer’s mood and to recall Schiller’s “Ode to Joy,” which Beethoven set to music in his 9th Symphony.

Tetra Divine Spark from Nomos Glashütte.

The watch is one of four Tetra designs within the Nomos Tetra Symphony collection. While another of the collection’s models is actually called the Tetra Ode to Joy, it’s this copper-dialed version that Nomos says will ignite a ‘spark to the wrist.”

The full Nomos Tetra Symphony series.

Nomos extends the Tetra Divine Spark’s upbeat metallic tone by utilizing three gold hands to indicate hours, minutes and seconds. All three play nicely with the 29.5mm by 29.5mm polished steel case.

Tetra has long been among Nomos’ most elegant offerings, whether with its original manual-wind Alpha caliber inside (like with this new model) or set with an automatic caliber. Note the perfectly executed overlapping lugs, slim dial font and, for this model, the subtle grey velour strap. All in all, a tuneful composition.

Price: $2,080.
