new: NOMOS Tangente Antoine de Macedo Saint-Germain Paris

Antoine de Macedo jewelers of Saint-Germain, Paris introduces the Tangente 139.S50, a limited edition of 75 pieces.

Antoine de Macedo, Paris-based specialist in watches both new and vintage, just released a limited edition created in collaboration with NOMOS. It is based on NOMOS’ best-selling Tangente 139, but it features several touches that make it discretely stand out. All markings on the dial are done in blue, matching the blued pencil hands. At six o’clock the text AdM SAINT-GERMAIN reminds us of its raison d’être. It comes fitted on a special strap that has a slight blue hue.

As per the standard 139, the case on the AdM Saint Germain version measures in at 35mm. It is motivated by the hand-wound Alpha movement. Water-resistance is set at 30 meters.

More details on the Tangente AdM Saint-Germain over at ADM-Horloger.

The Hour Glass of Singapore celebrates its 40th anniversary with four limited edition NOMOS watches with either Chinese Oracle Bone or Hindu-Arabic numerals.

The Hour Glass, one of Asia’s luxury watch retail groups with over 40 boutiques in nine key cities in the Asia Pacific region, is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2019. As part of the celebration the jeweler introduces four new Tangente neomatik Red Dot watches. Named after one of Singapore’s (THG’s home town) nick names, the watches are inspired by the diverse and multicultural influences that have shaped the city state.

weltweit: Hands-On: Nomos Club Campus Amsterdam Limited Edition by Ace Jewelers by Atelier de Griff

In ‘weltweit’ we keep track of interesting NOMOS articles posted around the web.

This morning, Atelier de Griff posted a hands-on review of the NOMOS Club Campus Amsterdam for Ace Jewelers:

I’m a sucker for special editions. It’s a weakness. Not only in watches, but in books, sneakers, Oreo cookies, and many other things. Anyway, I saw this thing on Instagram and it immediately drew me in. It feels like a Nomos take on a panda dial, and unless they make a chronograph someday, it might be as close as we get. The red numerals and second hand pop, and the dial goes from near black to a light washed out gray depending on the light. It has a beautiful matte finish that feels like the inverse of their silvered dials.

Hop over to Atelier de Griff for the full article!

editorial: interview with Stephan of ForASec

Interview with Stephan of ForASec Watches about the new limited edition: Nomos Club Campus Amsterdam

Past Saturday Stephan and his daughter Japke paid a visit to our offices in Amsterdam, where I had the prototype of the NOMOS Club Campus Amsterdam available for them to fiddle with. Stephan subsequently interviewed himself (not weird at all, really!) about the watch.

Stephan is the owner of ForASec Watches. With this company he offers an impressive portfolio of micro brands, including Margrette, Halios and Seals. Besides these smaller brands he also has a raging passion for the Omega Speedmaster Professional. His love for watches has spread well into the next generation, as witnessed by yours truly during this father-and-daughter visit.

Did you like the new Ace x Nomos watch?

S: Yes, I loved it on my wrist. Lots of stuff to look at and funny how the sub dial makes it stand out when looking at it from a distance. Would somehow love a red suede strap to go with it.

I already put it on a red alligator Stephan, and have a red tropic on order. Way ahead of you!

Any particular features that stood out?

S: Yes. As said that subdial and let’s not forget the movement! I love hand winders because they show more of the movement than automatics. The finishing is really outstanding! My daughter loved the three X’s on the crown. Quirky details like that are appreciated.

Will you get one?

S: Tempted but still thinking on how to explain the wife that our teenager goes to school wearing this.

Any final words?

S; Outstanding collaboration that combines two of your passions. Nomos and Ace for me combine well. Both versatile, committed, a little bit nerdy but most of all passionate.

You should make a sticker.

Oh, wait…..

Follow Stephan on Instagram and make sure to pay his website a visit!

Thank you Stephan and Japke!

The Club Campus Amsterdam is available in our boutiques, on AceJewelers.com and right here on Minimatikal.

Interview Dale vito Nomos Club Campus Amsterdam Limited Edition Ace Jewelers

Interview with Dale from Ace Jewelers about the new limited edition: Nomos Club Campus Amsterdam

Dale took time to share a cup of coffee and answer some questions about the new released limited edition: Ace x Nomos Club Campus Amsterdam.

He has been with Ace Jewelers since 2012 and spends his time at the Ace Online offices. Besides watches he likes cycling, and on a good day you might even catch him riding his bike from Amersfoort to Amsterdam and back. 

Interview Dale vito Nomos Club Campus Amsterdam Limited Edition Ace Jewelers

How did NOMOS come on your radar?

D: It must’ve been around 2004-2005, when I was endlessly browsing forums such as WatchUSeek and TimeZone. The first time I really took notice was with the release of the Tangomat.

Interview Dale vito Nomos Club Campus Amsterdam Limited Edition Ace Jewelers

What do you like about NOMOS?

D: Over the years I’ve come to appreciate the signature NOMOS style, and approach to manufacturing more and more. I like how they stick to a certain look and feel. You either love it or hate it, but you know a NOMOS when you see one! Since working with them I’ve also come to love the kindness of the people and their down-to-earth attitude. No wild champagne-showered parties, no polo matches, no flashy ambassadors – just watches.

You already unveiled a first limited edition with NOMOS in 2017, celebrating the 100 Years of de Stijl. How has it been received?

D: I’d say pretty well! It was the first time we embarked on a project like this, so it really was a big experiment for us. We knew the Orion de Stijl wouldn’t be for everyone, but it sold well and we got a lot of good press and reactions from around the world.

Interview Dale vito Nomos Club Campus Amsterdam Limited Edition Ace Jewelers

What made you interested in working on a second Limited Edition and what is special about it?

D: We had great fun with the Orion de Stijl, and at the same time we learned a lot. The fact that this watch was unique to us meant that we really had to market it ourselves. In the run-up Alon and I bugged them with a crazy amount of designs, concepts and ideas. I think we were both happy to be allowed to bring another one to fruition!

I think the best part is that it is the first limited edition based on the Club Campus that NOMOS has done. The contrasting sub dial and red numerals really give it a unique look – yet it is still 100% NOMOS.

Why a Club Campus?

D: It is well-published that the Club is my favorite NOMOS. It is classic with a funky twist. I like the robust and sturdy case, and highly appreciate its 100m water resistance. The fact that it is one of the most affordable models doesn’t hurt either…

What was the inspiration during the designing process?

D: As I said earlier, we made up a huge number of different designs. Some of them were quite out there! But black-red-white color scheme based on the Amsterdam city shield was something we kept getting back to. It’s a classic combination. It also works well on many models and hopefully we’ll be given the opportunity to do another NOMOS with these colors in the future.

Interview Dale vito Nomos Club Campus Amsterdam Limited Edition Ace Jewelers

What should I wear with this watch?

I’d love to see what people come up with in terms of straps. I’ve tried a few already but can’t wait to see more.  I’m looking forward the most to wearing mine on a beach with swimming trunks, on either a rubber or canvas strap.

How many pieces will be available and where can I buy it?

It’s made as a limited edition of 75 pieces. It is available in our boutiques, on AceJewelers.com and right here on Minimatikal.

Can you describe Amsterdam in three words?

Beautiful – When – Sunny

Or alternatively;

Terrible – For – Cycling (when clipped-in on a road bike that is)

What is your favorite spot in Amsterdam?

D: I’d love a top 10 Strava notation on the Plantage Middenlaan segment. But I’d need to shave off about 6 seconds!

Many thanks Dale for your time and answers!
