Ace x NOMOS Glashütte Club Campus Amsterdam
Ace Jewelers and NOMOS Glashütte have teamed up for the second time to create a limited edition wristwatch. The German manufacturer’s Club Campus Nacht got a unique make-over. The result is the Club Campus Amsterdam, a German watch with a good dash of Amsterdam. The NOMOS Club Campus Amsterdam has a stainless steel case of 38.5mm. The anthracite dial features a contrasting silver sub dial for the seconds at 6:00. The hour markers are done in red with a white outline, and the seconds hand is done in matching red. The colors are inspired by the iconic flag of Amsterdam, which waves proudly on countless places throughout the city. As a subtle reminder the crown is signed with the three Amsterdam crosses rather than the regular NOMOS.
Alon Ben Joseph, CEO of Ace Jewelers says: “Amsterdam is a creative and vibrant city where past, present, and future meet. In 1972 our father David Ben Joseph choose for Amsterdam to be his new home, and my brother and I are born and raised here. With the Club Campus Amsterdam we’re paying homage to the city that we call home and love”.
The Club Campus Amsterdam is powered by NOMOS’ hand-wound Alpha movement. This hand-wound movement is manufactured in-house and features a power reserve of 43 hours. Its Glashütte-style finishing can be admired via the see-through case back. The NOMOS Club Amsterdam is fitted with a grey velour strap.
Rob Nudds of NOMOS says: “I love Amsterdam and never miss an opportunity to visit this beautiful city. Of course I got very excited when Ace approached us with this idea for their second limited edition! It’s the first time we did one based on the Club Campus and I think the result is just stellar’.
Nomos was founded in 1990 by Roland Schwertner. Nomos is best known for its remarkable designs and superb mechanical movements at an accessible price point. Their very own design agency, Berlinerblau takes its inspiration from the influential design movements like Deutscher Werkbund and the famed Bauhaus school.
