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.
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.

What do you think about the Nomos Orion, 35mm, as a good choice? Or the 38mm? Looks like it would be appropriate with either a black or brown leather band. Beyond the broader watch and size considerations, what do you think about the benefits/deficiencies as a dress watch of having the silver indexes and hands versus the gold and blue indexes and hands?
Here’s a fun poster Elise created for our Ace x NOMOS Orion 100 Years de Stijl Limited Edition. It highlights the changes we made to the original Orion, and shows the uncompromised (or even improved?) of legibility of the dial – the unique markers notwithstanding. It’s inspired by a 2006 ad we found on ClubNomos.de for Juwelier Roller. Get in touch with us in case you’re interested in owning one of these – we have a small number of them left!
In ‘weltweit’ we keep track of NOMOS articles posted around the web.
This week Lex Stolk of Horloge.Info posted a review of the Ace x NOMOS De Stijl Limited Edition. Sorry – this one is for the Dutchies only!
De monochromatische weg die Ace en Nomos zijn ingeslagen blijft veel langer boeiend. Wie toch primaire kleuren wilt zien kan twee dingen doen: het horloge omdraaien en ontdekken dat het Alpha uurwerk is voorzien van geblauwde schroeven, rode synthetische robijnen en een geel/goudkleurig balanswiel óf de zwarte Shell Cordovan band verruilen voor een gekleurd exemplaar.
