Press Release: NBCF Nomos Club Campus by Timeless Luxury

Words by Timeless Luxury – The NBCF Nomos Club Campus is a collaboration between the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Nomos Glashütte and Timeless Luxury Watches. There are two versions of the NBCF Nomos Club Campus available, a 36mm and a 38.5mm model. The smaller model features a white silver-plated dial, a pink seconds hand and pink outlines for each numeral. The larger model features a dark blue dial, a pink seconds hand and light blue minute markers. Each is powered by an Alpha hand-wound movement, upgraded with the Nomos swing system. Both feature steel case backs with an engraving of the NBCF logo, a symbol of life, growth, and hope for the future. Custom engraving is available on the back of each NBCF Nomos Club Campus.

A portion of each sale goes to fund the National Breast Cancer Foundation. The price for the NBCF models is the same as the original 36mm and 38.5mm Nomos Club Campuses, $1,500 for the former and $1,650 for the latter. Unlike previous Timeless/Nomos watches, the NBCF Nomos Club Campus is not a limited edition, but rather a regular production model which is intended to create a continuous contribution to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Each is expected to arrive this March.

weltweit: Hands-On: Nomos Club Campus Amsterdam Limited Edition by Ace Jewelers by Atelier de Griff

In ‘weltweit’ we keep track of interesting NOMOS articles posted around the web.

This morning, Atelier de Griff posted a hands-on review of the NOMOS Club Campus Amsterdam for Ace Jewelers:

I’m a sucker for special editions. It’s a weakness. Not only in watches, but in books, sneakers, Oreo cookies, and many other things. Anyway, I saw this thing on Instagram and it immediately drew me in. It feels like a Nomos take on a panda dial, and unless they make a chronograph someday, it might be as close as we get. The red numerals and second hand pop, and the dial goes from near black to a light washed out gray depending on the light. It has a beautiful matte finish that feels like the inverse of their silvered dials.

nomos club 701 discontinued? update

On May 30th I published a post on the discontinuation of our beloved Club 701 and 703:

“Yesterday the sad news reached me that the both the NOMOS Club 701 and it’s see-through back sibling the NOMOS Club 703 are now officially discontinued. As of today they are no longer available for retailers to order through NOMOS as they have no stock left!” (full article).

The Club 701 and 703 however are still available for order to this day, both through NOMOS-Glashuette.com as well as through the NOMOS Corner – which is the system us Authorized Dealers use to place our orders. This led me to ask my contacts in Glashütte about the status of these earlier this week. Today I got my answer:

After we have decided and announced to discontinue the Club 701, we had suddenly so many request that we believed we shouldn’t make our NOMOS Fans unhappy, so we ordered more missing parts to build more.

It is discontinued but as long as we have several cases or dials, we can still build if retailers are ordering…

While I am not 100% sure what this means in terms of numbers or time frame, I guess this is good news for us Club fans?

editorial: interview with Stephan of ForASec

Interview with Stephan of ForASec Watches about the new limited edition: Nomos Club Campus Amsterdam

Past Saturday Stephan and his daughter Japke paid a visit to our offices in Amsterdam, where I had the prototype of the NOMOS Club Campus Amsterdam available for them to fiddle with. Stephan subsequently interviewed himself (not weird at all, really!) about the watch.

Stephan is the owner of ForASec Watches. With this company he offers an impressive portfolio of micro brands, including Margrette, Halios and Seals. Besides these smaller brands he also has a raging passion for the Omega Speedmaster Professional. His love for watches has spread well into the next generation, as witnessed by yours truly during this father-and-daughter visit.

Did you like the new Ace x Nomos watch?

S: Yes, I loved it on my wrist. Lots of stuff to look at and funny how the sub dial makes it stand out when looking at it from a distance. Would somehow love a red suede strap to go with it.

I already put it on a red alligator Stephan, and have a red tropic on order. Way ahead of you!

Any particular features that stood out?

S: Yes. As said that subdial and let’s not forget the movement! I love hand winders because they show more of the movement than automatics. The finishing is really outstanding! My daughter loved the three X’s on the crown. Quirky details like that are appreciated.

Will you get one?

S: Tempted but still thinking on how to explain the wife that our teenager goes to school wearing this.

Any final words?

S; Outstanding collaboration that combines two of your passions. Nomos and Ace for me combine well. Both versatile, committed, a little bit nerdy but most of all passionate.

You should make a sticker.

Oh, wait…..

Follow Stephan on Instagram and make sure to pay his website a visit!

Thank you Stephan and Japke!

The Club Campus Amsterdam is available in our boutiques, on AceJewelers.com and right here on Minimatikal.

weltweit: Introducing Nomos Club Campus Amsterdam Limited Edition by Ace Jewelers by Monochrome

In ‘weltweit’ we keep track of interesting NOMOS articles posted around the web.

Yesterday Monochrome Watches posted an article on the NOMOS Club Campus Amsterdam for Ace Jewelers:

The main novelty for this Nomos Club Campus Amsterdam Limited Edition is to be found on the dial. While entirely black or silver-plated on standard versions, Ace Jewelers here add a splash of colour and a two-tone layout. Indeed, while the dial is galvanized and ruthenium-plated, the small seconds sub-dial is white silver-plated.
