new: NOMOS Zürich Weltzeit Amsterdam

Introducing the NOMOS Zürich Weltzeit Amsterdam – a limited edition of 25 pieces created for Ace Jewelers of Amsterdam.

Friends – I am super excited to finally introduce you to the latest limited edition of Ace Jewelers: the Zürich Weltzeit Amsterdam! You may know that Minimatikal is part of Ace Jewelers. It’s like our little online NOMOS boutique. Or flagship store. Anyway, as such I’ve been closely involved with this project. It’s the third limited edition we’ve done with NOMOS and the second in the ‘Amsterdam’ sub-series.

This time we went with the Zürich Weltzeit as a base model. It’s NOMOS most complicated watch and one that I’ve written about on this blog once or twice. In its standard configuration the Weltzeit exists in either silver or blue. Other variations have been made, like the porcelain-like white of Topper Jewelers and the rose-colored ‘Red Dot’ of The Hour Glass. Never has the Zürich Weltzeit been done in black though. And that’s exactly what we’ve done!

The black dial is unique already, but we’ve added a few other subtle touches that truly make this an ‘Amsterdam’ edition. GMT+1 is now Amsterdam rather than Berlin – in bright red too – and the little home icon normally found at 3:00 is replaced by the flag of Amsterdam. Finally, the crown is engraved with the three Amsterdam crosses (like on our Club Campus Amsterdam) while the case back is engraved with ZÜRICH LIMITED EDITION AMSTERDAM FOR ACE JEWELERS X/25. Yes, 25 pieces only!

The NOMOS Zuerich Weltzeit Amsterdam is available at Ace Jewelers and in our own shop.

NOMOS Tangente neomatik Red Dot – celebrating 40 years The Hour Glass

The Hour Glass of Singapore celebrates its 40th anniversary with four limited edition NOMOS watches with either Chinese Oracle Bone or Hindu-Arabic numerals.

The Hour Glass, one of Asia’s luxury watch retail groups with over 40 boutiques in nine key cities in the Asia Pacific region, is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2019.

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?

Update 19/7/2019

Dear Dale,

we are fine thank you.

As long as we have the parts of the watch we can produce it, but you have right in foreseeable future this watch issold out. I hope this was helpfully for you.
