Up till now, NOMOS watches have always been fitted with pin buckles, and those of you preferring a folding clasp were forced to turn to aftermarket solutions. That ends now: presenting the first original NOMOS folding clasp!
Last week I had the opportunity to go hands-on with the Ace X NOMOS Orion De Stijl limited edition watch for an extended period of time. I’ve put down a few thoughts below.
Playful, classic and cool are the words that come to mind with the Minimatik ref. 1203 on my wrist. The 35.5mm case is bright silver/white with a punch of color in the finer details. The red hour, minute and second hands are attention grabbing, translating to clear readability of the dial. The color palette really takes you back to the basics as far as using only red, cyan blue and the warm, silvery hour markers.
There’s a reason why the Orion is a favorite among the Nomos design team. The dial is clean and has just enough information to make it an easy to read timepiece.
