The NOMOS Club Campus U is a Chinese-market exclusive based on th 38.5mm NOMOS Club Campus. But why the name Club Campus U? U is “You”, meaning different personalities of people.

The watch has a diameter of 38.5 mm, and the dial with a contrasting design is full of personality: the main dial is black, in sharp contrast with the white small seconds dial at 6 o’clock. The rose gold-plated hands, Arabic and Roman numerals are equipped with Superluminova fluorescent coating, which allows time to be read time also in dark places. The matching blue-black waterproof fabric strap gives the watch a dynamic and energetic atmosphere.

press release: NOMOS Club Automatic 175 Years of Watchmaking

Sporty, long-lasting, attractively priced

A different kind of luxury timepiece from Glashütte: The watchmaking company NOMOS Glashütte is starting spring with three limited-edition automatic models in new colors

And now the third is here: Club by NOMOS Glashütte comes in three new colorways, each limited to 175 pieces. The three names: Club automatic onyx, Club automatic navy, Club automatic olive. This popular model with domed sapphire crystal glass is available in beautiful shades of green, blue, and black (galvanized). 

Within these timepieces, the NOMOS movement DUW 5001 is at work—the first self-winding caliber from the watchmaking company, introduced in 2005. The diameter measures 40 millimeters. All three watches are also easily legible at night.

NOMOS Glashütte has crafted these long-lasting timepieces with the next generation of watch owners in mind. People, in other words, who will need a good watch on the wrist for decades to come. The durable and robust models can withstand the rigors of life, are water-resistant to 20 atm, and go well with sporty endeavors outdoors as well as in water; they also look great with a suit in the office.

First, there was Ludwig – 175 Years Watchmaking Glashütte, which celebrated the town’s heritage as the center of German watchmaking. Then came Lambda – 175 Years Watchmaking Glashütte, which represented the very best of Glashütte handcraft. And now there is an entirely different watch: An automatic model with an in-house built caliber and the proprietary NOMOS swing system adjusted according to chronometer standards. Available for an entry-level price which many people will find attractive: “A group of customers that has always been of great importance to us,” says NOMOS CEO Uwe Ahrendt.

Each of these watches comes with its own beautiful accessory: The elegant and complementary strap—a light gray and blue-black textile strap for the olive green and navy models respectively, and the NOMOS Sport bracelet for the onyx version. These watches are available from March in select retailers and online in the NOMOS Store, starting from 1,960 euro.

jeroensv & the nomos amsterdam series / club siren white

My friend JeroenSV is a watch collector and motorcar fanatic. Besides his day job as a mechanical engineer, you may often find him behind the lens of a camera. His favourite subjects? Rather unsurprisingly it’s cars and watches. You may find his work over at WatchWorks Haarlem, where he’s the sole photographer, and at Van Santen & Vink, a company he founded together with childhood friend Dimer van Santen. I’m a fan!

A few weeks back I took a little detour on my way to work to drop off a couple of watches for Jeroen to mess around with. Today I am proud to share the result. Enjoy – and make sure to give Jeroen a follow via @JeroenSV!

press release: NOMOS Ludwig Enamel White

Gifts with a present on top

Gifts are always important, but even more so in a year like this one, where good times are harder to come by. Two classic watches from NOMOS Glashütte have been beautifully adapted and are available for a highly attractive price—and each comes with a present on top: glossy enamel-white dials.

GLASHÜTTE, NOVEMBER 2020. Christmas is almost here again, and this year there are two special gifts from the watchmaking company NOMOS Glashütte to look forward to—namely two new versions of the classic Ludwig: one larger and highly elegant (Ludwig 38 enamel white at 38 millimeters in diameter), the other equally beautiful in a smaller size (Ludwig 33 duo enamel white at 33 millimeter in diameter). Both watches feature Roman numerals, fine indexes, and railroad minute markers—also known in French as chemin de fer. A slender pocket watch-style case is the perfect finishing touch, since Ludwig by NOMOS is a timepiece for traditionalists. Just like the Glashütte watchmakers who began honing their craft in the small town in Saxony, eastern Germany 175 years ago.

These may be atypical design elements for NOMOS Glashütte, yet they serve to make these models all the more classic. To mark the anniversary, both timepieces come with glossy enamel-white dials reminiscent of early pocket watches. Thanks to modern technology they are robust and made to last, and as such they are especially beautiful. The hands are tempered blue. Both models are powered by Alpha—the caliber that ticks in more watches from NOMOS Glashütte than any other. Three-quarter plate, tempered blue screws, and Glashütte ribbing are all beautifully on show through the sapphire crystal glass. The smaller, women’s version is a two-hand model and therefore belongs to the “duo” series, since it tells time in minutes and hours only.

To make these watches an even more attractive gift for someone special, NOMOS Glashütte has considered their prices carefully: The exquisite enamel-white dial, itself a tribute to the 175th anniversary of Glashütte watchmaking, can be thought of as a Christmas gift from the company—as the watches do not cost more than the corresponding standard versions.
