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 GlashĂŒtte, 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 GlashĂŒtte 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 GlashĂŒtte, 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 GlashĂŒtte

Benchmark: NOMOS GlashĂŒtte 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 GlashĂŒtte

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

GLASHÜTTE, JANUARY 2022. NOMOS GlashĂŒtte 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 GlashĂŒtte emerges as the industry winner and clearly occupies 1st place,” according to the study.

NOMOS GlashĂŒtte received 100 points, Omega 77.6 points, and Rolex 74.6.  The researchers did not find any information concerning NOMOS GlashĂŒtte’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 GlashĂŒtte 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.”

press release: The NOMOS Advent Calendar is back for 2021!

Timepieces until Christmas Eve: This year, each open door reveals more valuable gifts than ever before. Five hand-made watches from NOMOS GlashĂŒtte are among them.

GLASHÜTTE DURING ADVENT 2021. Made for counting down the days, shortening the time until the celebrations begin and spreading festive cheer: The Advent calendar. Whereas early versions of this “clock” consisted of being allowed to place a single straw stalk in the manger each day or to wipe away one of 24 chalk lines, modern Advent calendars provide a true glimpse of celebrations to come: A little gift each day. 

This year, NOMOS GlashĂŒtte is particularly lavish. Behind the 24 doors even more watches and other valuable gifts bide their time. In addition to our own hand-made products, there are cases and bracelets, bags and other leather goods, writing utensils, and design classics. 

And everyone gets to open the NOMOS doors each day: From December 1, simply register, click, and win at the NOMOS website. Chances of winning the gift of the day have been exceptionally favorable in previous years—so it’s worth joining in this year as well. However, only heaven knows the winner, i.e. a Christmas angel at watchmaker NOMOS GlashĂŒtte—also a horologist by day—using a random generator.

press release: Autobahn Director’s Cut Limited Edition

Strictly limited from the word go: Autobahn is the name of a watch from NOMOS GlashĂŒtte. Now it is available in a trailblazing new limited edition: A3, A7, A9—named after major freeways in Germany. With three new colors and a new bracelet, the collector’s piece is Werner Aisslinger’s “Director’s Cut” and marks 175 years of GlashĂŒtte watchmaking heritage.

GLASHÜTTE, 5 OCTOBER 2021. Very dashing, in very special colors: With three new “Director’s Cut” versions of the automatic watch Autobahn, NOMOS GlashĂŒtte is celebrating 175 years of GlashĂŒtte watchmaking heritage in a very contemporary way. Designed by renowned designer Werner Aisslinger, the timepiece is the latest model from the watchmaking company. The three new colors—A3 in white-orange red, A7 in blue-yellow, and A9 in black-gray—are much more eye-catching than the existing versions, and are reminiscent of the kinds of vehicles that adorned the streets of Germany in the ‘60s and ‘70s.

But, the new NOMOS watches are much more beautiful than vintage cars; their engines are more efficient and, of course, better for the environment: neomatik caliber (neomatik stands for new automatic) DUW 6101 uses a highly efficient winding mechanism to charge itself through motion.

Despite the date complication, the movement is exceptionally slender, measuring just 3.2 millimeters in height. The lean design of the in-house built caliber enables the dial to transition from curve to curve: Once around the edge of the raised dial, and again on the sub-seconds dial. The elegant curves give the impression of depth on the dial, a dynamic and novel feature for such a timepiece. Eye-catching below the six and set into the curve of the dial: The generously proportioned and patented date window.

Thanks to the striking luminous ring, all three special models are legible in the dark. These limited-edition models have been adjusted according to chronometer standards in GlashĂŒtte. The bracelet with its characteristic openings and the NOMOS secure deployant clasp is, like the watch, a creation by the renowned designer, and is only available with these special versions. As such, the Director’s Cut bracelet is also limited edition.

The NOMOS Autobahn Director’s Cut is available through our partners over at Ace Jewelers;

image of the month: neomatik exploded view

One watch movement, one unmissable spectacle: A caliber that’s thrilled to bits and rightly so. Seen here, in all their glory, are the very special individual components of a mechanical watch movement from NOMOS GlashĂŒtte—representing both 175 years of traditional craftsmanship and cutting edge, high-tech engineering. neomatik, new automatic, is a fitting name for the series of watch movements with which the NOMOS watchmakers have been causing a sensation for several years.


But what exactly is so special about neomatik? Thanks to state-of-the-art R&D and production methods, tolerances have been halved, efficiency and precision increased, and the movement has been built to be ultra-slender. Measuring a mere 3.2 millimeters in height (the version with date: 3.6 millimeters), neomatik is around half the height of self-winding calibers usually found in comparable watches. For decades, virtually all automatic calibers produced in series were based on mechanical developments from the early 1970s. Back then, it wasn’t possible to work in the precise detail we are able to now, and material science was not yet so advanced. With neomatik, the watch caliber technology of today has entered a new chapter—making slender self-winding timepieces not just a reality, but also exceptionally precise.
