facts nomos zurich

The NOMOS Zürich was introduced in 2009.

The NOMOS Zürich was designed by Studio Hannes Wettstein. Notably, it was one of the last projects on which the late Hannes Wettstein worked himself – aided by his partner Stephan Hürlemann and protege Simon Husslein. After the death of Hannes Wettstein, Husslein and Hürlemann continued Studio Hannes Wettstein. Under this name they designed the Lamda, Lux, and Minimatik. Simon Husslein left and founded Atelier Simon Husslein in 2015, while Stephan Hürlemann renamed Studio Hannes Wettstein to Hürlemann in 2016.

NOMOS consideres the Zürich to be its first true luxury watch. Notwithstanding its sober looks, it is more elaborate in design and execution compared to other models in the NOMOS collection. In its most simple form, the case consists of eight distinct parts – and that is not counting the six screws to hold the case back. The faceted hands and applied markers (though the Weltzeit does not feature the latter) further fuel luxury feel and appearance of the NOMOS Zürich.

All sizes for the NOMOS Zürich can be found in our sizes section.
