NOMOS classic Tangente neomatik: Now available in platinum gray—in two sizes

GLASHĂśTTE, FEBRUARY 2022. Graceful Arabic numerals, a slender bezel, a coin-shaped steel case—a flat cylinder with straight sides, topped by smooth sapphire crystal glass. Tangente is the most successful watch by NOMOS GlashĂĽtte, an icon, and one of the most famous wristwatches made in Germany. Tangente neomatik platinum gray adds a new look to this watch series, becoming the pinnacle of cool elegance.

Three watches with a metallic dial released within the space of a few weeks: NOMOS GlashĂĽtte ended 2021 with gold and silver watches, and now there is Tangente platinum gray. The dial is plated with rhodium, a platinum metal which provides the striking gray hue. Rhodium-plated, needle-thin hands accentuate the harmonious design and are visible at a glance. As is so often the case with NOMOS GlashĂĽtte, this design is gender-neutral, size being the only difference. Tangente neomatik platinum gray is available in diameters of 35 and 39 millimeters.  

The delicate, golden neomatik lettering under the manufacture’s signet enhances the  brilliance of the platinum gray dial and refers to the work of the watchmakers and engineers: the in-house automatic caliber DUW 3001 is not merely precise, it is also very slender. The word neomatik, new automatic, accentuates this distinctive feature. If you choose the sapphire crystal glass back, you can observe the bidirectional winding rotor and the finely decorated movement in operation. For the first time ever, Tangente neomatik is now also available with a steel back—making the watch more affordable.

One watch movement, one unmissable spectacle: A caliber that’s thrilled to bits and rightly so. Seen here, in all their glory, are the very special individual components of a mechanical watch movement from NOMOS Glashütte—representing both 175 years of traditional craftsmanship and cutting edge, high-tech engineering. neomatik, new automatic, is a fitting name for the series of watch movements with which the NOMOS watchmakers have been causing a sensation for several years.


But what exactly is so special about neomatik? Thanks to state-of-the-art R&D and production methods, tolerances have been halved, efficiency and precision increased, and the movement has been built to be ultra-slender. Measuring a mere 3.2 millimeters in height (the version with date: 3.6 millimeters), neomatik is around half the height of self-winding calibers usually found in comparable watches. For decades, virtually all automatic calibers produced in series were based on mechanical developments from the early 1970s. Back then, it wasn’t possible to work in the precise detail we are able to now, and material science was not yet so advanced. With neomatik, the watch caliber technology of today has entered a new chapter—making slender self-winding timepieces not just a reality, but also exceptionally precise.

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!
