press release: NOMOS Glashütte unveils the new Club Campus U² watch

NOMOS  GlashĂĽtte once again takes the distinctive personality and life attitude of today’s young people as its creative blueprint, and launches the new Club Campus U² watch  (Ref. 738.S5)

NOMOS Glashütte introduces the new Club Campus U² watch  (Ref. 738.S5), continuing the contrasting dial design of the Club Campus U watch of 2021. Inspired by the distinctive personality and life attitude of the current young generation, it bears the hope for their future expectations and best wishes. Just like its predecessor, the watch is exclusively available on the Chinese market.

[May 2022, China] As the representative of sports and leisure in the NOMOS GlashĂĽtte watch series, Club, which came out in 2007, was designed by Berlin-based designer Karin Sieber. The exterior design is matched with the brand ’s hand-wound Alpha movement, which not only expresses youthful dynamism, but also gives it a timeless charm. In 2017, on the basis of the original design of the Club, NOMOS launched the Club Campus watch – the dial layout in a combination of Arabic numerals and Roman numerals, showing a relaxed and humorous attitude, plus a higher degree of recognition. The Club Campus, with its rich dial colors, different sizes and movement combinations, undoubtedly provides more choices for the younger generation.

Similar to the Club Campus U watch launched last year, NOMOS’ new Club Campus U² watch (Ref. 738.S5) is once again based on the distinctive personality and life attitude of today’s young people: U is “You” , implying a variety of personalities and different life stages of the self – is an ignorant but energetic freshman in the workplace, and a mature, stable, capable and firm social backbone; U also refers to “Unity”, which means the combination of different personalities, different The experience of the situation is the complete self and life. From the perspective of the NOMOS Berlin design team, the contrasting black and white design of the Club Campus U² watch (Ref. 738.S5) is an excellent interpretation of this point of view – the milkshake white main dial and the anthracite small seconds dial are independent of each other , and indispensable, the two combine to form a complete Club Campus U² watch (Ref. 738.S5), reflecting a balanced and subtle visual aesthetic.

 The case of the new watch is made of stainless steel and has a diameter of 38.5 mm. On the contrasting color dial, which combines a simple design and rich details, the hour markers composed of Arabic and Roman numerals outlined in gold serifs alternate with stick markers for the uneven hours. Like the golden hour and minute hands, they are covered with Superluminova fluorescent coating, which can read the time clearly in dim places. The watch is waterproof to a depth of 10 ATM (100 meters), which can easily cope with all kinds of activities. The matching dark suede leather strap infuses it with an elegant texture, suitable for daily commuting or other formal occasions. The Club Campus U² watch (Ref. 738.S5) is powered by the hand-wound Alpha movement made by NOMOS: a durable, precise and reliable movement. Through the sapphire crystal transparent caseback, you can admire its distinctive watchmaking features from Glashütte : a three-quarter plate, tempered blued steel screws and Glashütte stripe polishing.

Introverted or extroverted, reserved or enthusiastic, the young generation who are loyal to themselves and carry their dreams have unlimited possibilities. This youthful NOMOS Club Campus U² watch (Ref. 738.S5), which is full of expectations and blessings, will accompany them on a new journey towards a bright future.

GlashĂĽtte watches make a great gift: The NOMOS Club Campus series marks milestones, accomplishments and important occasions, and now comes in new versions with striking, youthful colors that can be combined in a wide variety of ways.

GLASHĂśTTE, MARCH 30, 2022. Vigor and joie de vivre radiate from two new watch models, which come in two sizes from NOMOS GlashĂĽtte, and released just in time to welcome Spring: Club Campus deep pink and Club Campus blue purple are more eye-catching, flashier and beg to be seen. And elevate your mood. In short: Typical of youth.

But also – making it even more modern – with olive and other green tones, brown, red, purple and yellow. The blue purple not only combines well with cream and light gray tones, black and dark blue. It also goes well with orange, sunny yellow and bluish greens.

As with the Campus versions of past years, a mix of Roman and Arabic numerals display the time, and the watches are water resistant up to 100 meters, sporty and easy to read even in the dark. The highly precise NOMOS Alpha movement comes from the company’s own manufactory.

jeroensv & the nomos amsterdam series / club siren white

My friend JeroenSV is a watch collector and motorcar fanatic. Besides his day job as a mechanical engineer, you may often find him behind the lens of a camera. His favourite subjects? Rather unsurprisingly it’s cars and watches. You may find his work over at WatchWorks Haarlem, where he’s the sole photographer, and at Van Santen & Vink, a company he founded together with childhood friend Dimer van Santen. I’m a fan!

A few weeks back I took a little detour on my way to work to drop off a couple of watches for Jeroen to mess around with. Today I am proud to share the result. Enjoy – and make sure to give Jeroen a follow via @JeroenSV!
