press release: NOMOS Ludwig 175 Years Watchmaking Glashütte

Watchmakers in Glashütte have been crafting precision timepieces since 1845. NOMOS Glashütte is celebrating this anniversary with three special editions of its classic watch Ludwig. Each of the three models—with handwound caliber, neomatik caliber, or neomatik date caliber—is being manufactured in a limited edition of 175 pieces adjusted according to chronometer standards.

In a new special edition celebrating 175 years of the watchmaker’s art in Glashütte, Ludwig takes classicism a tick further: The Roman numerals on its enamel-white dial are complemented by blue-tempered leaf hands and a railroad track minute scale; engraved on the caseback of sapphire glass is a limited edition marking and the words “175 Years Watchmaking Glashütte.”

Three special anniversary models, three handcrafted movements: inside these watches ticks the tried and true handwound movement Alpha, the self-winding neomatik movement DUW 3001, or the neomatik date movement DUW 6101 — the automatic versions also featuring the NOMOS swing system. All three movements, manufactured in-house in Glashütte, are reliable pacesetters—and are regulated according to chronometer standards.

The NOMOS Ludwig 175 Years Watchmaking Glashütte are available for pre-order at our partner Ace Jewelers:
