press release: NOMOS Glashütte unveils the new Club Campus U² watch

NOMOS  Glashütte once again takes the distinctive personality and life attitude of today’s young people as its creative blueprint, and launches the new Club Campus U² watch  (Ref. 738.S5)

NOMOS Glashütte introduces the new Club Campus U² watch  (Ref. 738.S5), continuing the contrasting dial design of the Club Campus U watch of 2021. Inspired by the distinctive personality and life attitude of the current young generation, it bears the hope for their future expectations and best wishes. Just like its predecessor, the watch is exclusively available on the Chinese market.

[May 2022, China] As the representative of sports and leisure in the NOMOS Glashütte watch series, Club, which came out in 2007, was designed by Berlin-based designer Karin Sieber. The exterior design is matched with the brand ’s hand-wound Alpha movement, which not only expresses youthful dynamism, but also gives it a timeless charm. In 2017, on the basis of the original design of the Club, NOMOS launched the Club Campus watch – the dial layout in a combination of Arabic numerals and Roman numerals, showing a relaxed and humorous attitude, plus a higher degree of recognition. The Club Campus, with its rich dial colors, different sizes and movement combinations, undoubtedly provides more choices for the younger generation.

Similar to the Club Campus U watch launched last year, NOMOS’ new Club Campus U² watch (Ref. 738.S5) is once again based on the distinctive personality and life attitude of today’s young people: U is “You” , implying a variety of personalities and different life stages of the self – is an ignorant but energetic freshman in the workplace, and a mature, stable, capable and firm social backbone; U also refers to “Unity”, which means the combination of different personalities, different The experience of the situation is the complete self and life. From the perspective of the NOMOS Berlin design team, the contrasting black and white design of the Club Campus U² watch (Ref. 738.S5) is an excellent interpretation of this point of view – the milkshake white main dial and the anthracite small seconds dial are independent of each other , and indispensable, the two combine to form a complete Club Campus U² watch (Ref. 738.S5), reflecting a balanced and subtle visual aesthetic.

 The case of the new watch is made of stainless steel and has a diameter of 38.5 mm. On the contrasting color dial, which combines a simple design and rich details, the hour markers composed of Arabic and Roman numerals outlined in gold serifs alternate with stick markers for the uneven hours. Like the golden hour and minute hands, they are covered with Superluminova fluorescent coating, which can read the time clearly in dim places. The watch is waterproof to a depth of 10 ATM (100 meters), which can easily cope with all kinds of activities. The matching dark suede leather strap infuses it with an elegant texture, suitable for daily commuting or other formal occasions. The Club Campus U² watch (Ref. 738.S5) is powered by the hand-wound Alpha movement made by NOMOS: a durable, precise and reliable movement. Through the sapphire crystal transparent caseback, you can admire its distinctive watchmaking features from Glashütte : a three-quarter plate, tempered blued steel screws and Glashütte stripe polishing.

Introverted or extroverted, reserved or enthusiastic, the young generation who are loyal to themselves and carry their dreams have unlimited possibilities. This youthful NOMOS Club Campus U² watch (Ref. 738.S5), which is full of expectations and blessings, will accompany them on a new journey towards a bright future.

press release: Tetra neomatik 175 Years Watchmaking Glashütte – Tetra but radically different

Going from the club to the office or vice versa? Sure thing. And a watch from the new limited edition series from NOMOS Glashütte will come along too. It is something for people who know their own mind. 

GLASHÜTTE, MAY 17, 2022. Color versions of the successful, square classic Tetra have long been available from NOMOS Glashütte. Until now, these were hand-wound watches in rather subtle shades. But now Tetra is stepping up its game: with Tetra neomatik – 175 Years Watchmaking Glashütte, the manufactory is striking new tones. The four models available this spring are not just flat, elegant automatic watches; they are also extravagant and a little idiosyncratic. These days, some would call them edgy.

Red, blue, black and off white are the new, very crisp colors of these watches. They are coated using a technique whose effect is comparable to that of enamel: incoming light is not absorbed by the opaque surfaces but instead reflected, creating depth. In terms of their shape and size, the new models are neither feminine nor masculine but—like other timepiece success stories—for everyone.

But that’s not to say they are actually for everyone. “The watches are bolder than sneakers with a jacket,” according to NOMOS product manager Heike Ahrendt. Be it a business coach or an NFT artist, a political newcomer or a YouTube star, a molecular researcher or an interior designer, with these watches, NOMOS Glashütte had in mind self-assured, modern people who do not follow the mainstream. “That might be surprising, but it’s only logical,” says Ahrendt. After all, even as a company, NOMOS Glashütte has always gone its own way.

The new NOMOS edition is limited to just 175 units each worldwide, as evidenced by the engraving on the back. Something NOMOS is celebrating with a gift: it comes with the beautiful NOMOS deployant clasp on a remborde strap (made of Horween Genuine Shell Cordovan, oiled by hand, struck with glass balls for shine). Likewise, this Tetra series was regulated according to chronometer values. As such, these new watches are at least as desirable as the hand-wound Tetra models. But nevertheless: fundamentally different and a clear step up.

The NOMOS Tetra neomatik 175 Years Watchmaking Glashütte is now available for pre-order in the Ace Jewelers eBoutique using the links below;

NOMOS Tetra neomatik 175 Years Watchmaking Glashütte Off-White 421.S1

press release: Don’t Be Shy – new NOMOS Club Campus Deep Pink and Club Campus Blue Purple

Glashütte watches make a great gift: The NOMOS Club Campus series marks milestones, accomplishments and important occasions, and now comes in new versions with striking, youthful colors that can be combined in a wide variety of ways.

GLASHÜTTE, MARCH 30, 2022. Vigor and joie de vivre radiate from two new watch models, which come in two sizes from NOMOS Glashütte, and released just in time to welcome Spring: Club Campus deep pink and Club Campus blue purple are more eye-catching, flashier and beg to be seen. And elevate your mood. In short: Typical of youth.

Both new colors are versatile: The deep pink not only goes well with dark blue, black, gray and white. But also – making it even more modern – with olive and other green tones, brown, red, purple and yellow. The blue purple not only combines well with cream and light gray tones, black and dark blue. It also goes well with orange, sunny yellow and bluish greens.

As with the Campus versions of past years, a mix of Roman and Arabic numerals display the time, and the watches are water resistant up to 100 meters, sporty and easy to read even in the dark. The highly precise NOMOS Alpha movement comes from the company’s own manufactory.

Great for gifts: On Campus models, the back can be custom-engraved by NOMOS. Immortalizing everything that deserves to or should be remembered: Milestones, wishes and compliments. From grandma to grandson (for university acceptance), uncle to their favorite niece, parents to their son who just received a PhD, neighbors as a thank-you for babysitting: Gift-givers have up to four lines to indelibly inscribe their bond with the recipient.

The NOMOS Club Campus series for the next generation of watch wearers has existed since 2017. It is the most successful series of mechanical wristwatches made in Germany available for young women and men. NOMOS Glashütte is one of the few owner-operated watch manufactories in the world, and creates its mechanical timepieces in Glashütte, Germany. Watch models such as the Tangente, Ludwig, Orion, Club or Metro are world-famous – just like the place where they are made. This is because “Glashütte” is a legally protected designation of origin. Only manufacturers who work according to strict rules in the 175-year-old tradition of the town are permitted to use it for their wristwatches. NOMOS Glashütte is the manufacturer that produces the most mechanical watches in Glashütte.

press release: More Cool, More Style! NOMOS Tangente neomatik platinum gray

More Cool, More Style!

NOMOS classic Tangente neomatik: Now available in platinum gray—in two sizes

GLASHÜTTE, FEBRUARY 2022. Graceful Arabic numerals, a slender bezel, a coin-shaped steel case—a flat cylinder with straight sides, topped by smooth sapphire crystal glass. Tangente is the most successful watch by NOMOS Glashütte, an icon, and one of the most famous wristwatches made in Germany. Tangente neomatik platinum gray adds a new look to this watch series, becoming the pinnacle of cool elegance.

Three watches with a metallic dial released within the space of a few weeks: NOMOS Glashütte ended 2021 with gold and silver watches, and now there is Tangente platinum gray. The dial is plated with rhodium, a platinum metal which provides the striking gray hue. Rhodium-plated, needle-thin hands accentuate the harmonious design and are visible at a glance. As is so often the case with NOMOS Glashütte, this design is gender-neutral, size being the only difference. Tangente neomatik platinum gray is available in diameters of 35 and 39 millimeters.  

The delicate, golden neomatik lettering under the manufacture’s signet enhances the  brilliance of the platinum gray dial and refers to the work of the watchmakers and engineers: the in-house automatic caliber DUW 3001 is not merely precise, it is also very slender. The word neomatik, new automatic, accentuates this distinctive feature. If you choose the sapphire crystal glass back, you can observe the bidirectional winding rotor and the finely decorated movement in operation. For the first time ever, Tangente neomatik is now also available with a steel back—making the watch more affordable.

“Highest Quality” Seal Awarded to NOMOS Glashütte

Benchmark: NOMOS Glashütte prevails over more than 80 other watch manufacturers, receiving the “Highest Quality” seal from the Institute for Management and Economic Research (IMWF) and F.A.Z.-Institute. The NOMOS Tangente model—pictured here, the Tangente neomatik 39 version—has been one of the most well-known watches made in Germany for decades.

“Highest Quality” Seal Awarded to NOMOS Glashütte

Clearly Number One: NOMOS Glashütte prevails over more than 80 other watchmakers, becoming the best in the industry, ahead of Omega and Rolex. 

GLASHÜTTE, JANUARY 2022. NOMOS Glashütte was the clear winner in the competitive comparisons conducted by IMWF Institute for Management and Economic Research and F.A.Z.-Institute. Product and Service, Availability, Customer Satisfaction, Innovation and Quality: In nearly all categories of the “Highest Quality 2021” study, “NOMOS Glashütte emerges as the industry winner and clearly occupies 1st place,” according to the study.

NOMOS Glashütte received 100 points, Omega 77.6 points, and Rolex 74.6.  The researchers did not find any information concerning NOMOS Glashütte’s environmental sustainability efforts on the internet, which the manufacturer will have to communicate more effectively in the future. Handmade products which last a lifetime are produced onsite in Glashütte using fairly-sourced raw materials which are “already inherently very sustainable,” says Judith Borowski, the NOMOS manager responsible for sustainability. Judith is currently participating with the company in a comprehensive project with the Department of the Environment.

The “Highest Quality 2021” study, which analyzes every conceivable aspect of quality, is probably one of the largest and most extensive of its kind. Over the course of twelve months, 438 million online sources—including 154 million blogs, four million news sites, a million press releases, and several million social media posts—are collated and analyzed using artificial intelligence and social listening tools. After all, quality has long been one of the crucial factors when making a purchasing decision. Comprehensive quality assurance and quality certificates, along with more quality information, builds trust in products and brands. In addition to the online analysis on the work of over 22,000 companies, as described above, extensive questionnaires were also evaluated as part of the “Highest Quality 2021” study.

The IMWF Institute for Management and Economic Research, commissioned by the F.A.Z.-Institute to conduct the study, has the task of bridging the gap between science and business. In the wake of digitalization, the Hamburg-based institute has established itself as a laboratory for big data and artificial intelligence projects. The F.A.Z.-Institute has stood for relevant information and professional recognition for 30 years. Judith Borowski: “It’s also the distinction of these responsible organizations which makes this study so valuable to consumers. And for us, too.”
