press release: An iconic timepiece with festive spirit: Tangente midnight blue

Introducing two new versions of the classic NOMOS watch model, handcrafted in Glashütte, Germany.

GLASHÜTTE, NOVEMBER 2019. Give a gift that lasts this holiday season—namely a fine mechanical timepiece that will bring joy all year round. Tangente, the iconic watch model from NOMOS Glashütte, is available in two brand-new versions, just in time for the festivities. Both are hand-wound and feature an elegant midnight blue dial for the very first time. One is a unisex 35 mm in diameter, while the other is a tick larger, at 38 mm. This pairing would be a wonderful present for a couple, although each watch has distinct charms that make it unique.

Tangente has become a design classic since its initial release over a quarter of a century ago. Its Bauhaus-inspired aesthetics are straightforward and angular, created according to the principle that “form follows function.” Subtle details are what reveal its charm. For example, gold accents provided by the hands and typography not only harmonize beautifully with the beige velour leather strap, but also give the smaller version of Tangente midnight blue an appealing warmth—and festive sparkle. By contrast, Tangente 38 midnight blue features exclusively silver hands and typography, which coordinate beautifully with the stainless steel case and anthracite velour leather strap. The metallic accents on both timepieces are framed by the deep blue of their dials.

Both of these fine mechanical timepieces are powered by the Alpha caliber, handcrafted by NOMOS in Glashütte. This highly precise hand-wound caliber is also wonderfully finished—with sunburst polishing on the ratchet wheel, Glashütte ribbing on the three-quarter plate, and perlage on the base plate, which can be enjoyed through the sapphire crystal glass back. These traditional features draw on a rich heritage: The town of Glashütte, tucked away in the hills of rural Saxony, is the ticking heart of German watchmaking. Famous around the world for its high-quality timepieces, it has flourished since German reunification in 1990—which also happens to be the year in which NOMOS was founded.

Last but certainly not least: Tangente midnight blue and Tangente 38 midnight blue are accessibly priced, making them an excellent choice for all those looking to give an extra-special gift this year. They are available with retailers and online now.

press release: Handcrafted for the holidays

This holiday season, NOMOS Glashütte has two suggestions— one larger, one smaller—for a highly-precise gift that lasts a lifetime: beautiful new mechanical timepieces

GLASHÜTTE/BERLIN, OCTOBER 2018. One of these festive models measures 38 millimeters in diameter, while the other is just 33 millimeters across, making it suitable for smaller wrists. Both of these watches feature the same midnight blue dial with gold hands and indexes, and are handcrafted with precision and care by the skilled watchmakers of NOMOS Glashütte. While perfect for celebrating the most wonderful time of the year, the two models are also suitable for daily wear—and every season. Orion 38 midnight blue and Orion 33 midnight blue are the two newest members of the iconic Orion family of timepieces.

Orion is a classic model from NOMOS Glashütte. All watches in the Orion family feature domed sapphire crystal glass on both sides that gives them both invisible strength and 2/2 visible beauty. The case is elegantly curved and the lugs taper around the wrist for a seamless fit. Initially introduced in 1992, Orion was one of the first watches to be developed by NOMOS Glashütte and continues to be a success today

Now Orion is ready for the festivities to begin! Both new versions feature manual winding thanks to the Alpha caliber, the most frequently made in-house movement from NOMOS Glashütte—for excellent precision and value. The midnight blue dial is deeper than the starry winter sky, while the slim-line cases are stunningly slender, just like all watches in the NOMOS collection. The perfect pairing for one of the most elegant holiday seasons yet.

Both NOMOS watches are available from mid-November at select retailers [including Ace Jewelers, red.] and nomos-glashuette.com.

press release: time for green and blue

Another opportunity to shine for the celebrated date caliber: Orion olive gold and midnight blue join the NOMOS Update series

GLASHÜTTE/BERLIN, OCTOBER 2018

Just this spring, NOMOS Glashütte released its iconic Tangente, Ludwig, and Orion models with an entirely new caliber and integrated date function—and so the Update series was born. One of those revised icons, Orion, is poised for another variation. Joining the white silver-plated dial are two new color versions: an elegant midnight blue and olive gold, a subtle shade of green with a touch of golden warmth.

As one of the brand’s earliest models, which formed the first family of NOMOS Glashütte watches in 1992, Orion can rightfully stake its claim as a classic timepiece. The model was long available exclusively with manual winding, since only a very thin movement could be housed in its elegantly domed stainless steel case. With the Update series, which introduced a new neomatik date caliber (DUW 6101), the still super-slender Orion grew to a diameter of 41 millimeters. Winding occurs with the smallest movements of the wrist, allowing the date and time to be displayed automatically.

The convenient date function on the ultra-thin neomatik date caliber in Orion Update models is easy to adjust in either direction. The date window, created specifically for this model, completes the sleek design. Domed sapphire glass above and below adds invisible strength to this fine NOMOS watch. The dial and case of Orion are curved, while the lugs are tailored to fit the wrist.

Now, the iconic timepiece is available in green and blue—two new highlights in the Update series. But neither the color nor the size of this hand-assembled timepiece could ever detract from its core appeal, which is precise, timeless elegance. Whether in silver white, midnight blue or olive gold, Orion is always an understated companion that brings subtle, everyday elegance to wearers and their wrists.

Orion neomatik 41 date midnight blue and Orion neomatik 41 date olive gold will join the NOMOS Update series in October, when they will be available in stores and online at nomos-glashuette.com.

new: Orion neomatik 41 date Olive Gold & Mightnight Blue

NOMOS introduces two new color options for the Orion neomatik 41 date!

The NOMOS Orion neomatik 41 date was introduced at BaselWorld 2018 as part of a full series of watches powered by the new caliber DUW 6101 ‘Update’. Earlier today NOMOS added two new variations to the collection: the Olive Gold and the Midnight Blue.

NOMOS Orion neomatik 41 date Olive Gold

The NOMOS Orion neomatik 41 date Olive Gold features a dial in a subdued shade of green which is highlighted by the gold tones of the hands and indexes. The date disc is made to match the color of the dial; a thoughtful detail that will delight many purists for sure. As far as I know this is an entirely new color for NOMOS?

NOMOS neomatik 41 date Mightnight Blue

The NOMOS Orion neomatik 41 date Midnight Blue features a dial in the svelte midnight blue. The hands and indexes are of a silver tone, giving this version a colder appearance. Again, the date disc is made to match the tone of the dial.
