In ‘weltweit’ we keep track of interesting NOMOS articles posted around the web.
Today it was announced that Wempe has dropped NOMOS from its line-up in response of the recent Chronext and Chrono24 dealerships.
We are convinced that we have made a significant contribution to the success of Nomos. The decision of Nomos founder Roland Schwertner to be the only watch brand to recognize the internet platforms Chronext and Chrono24 as an official partner was a great disappointment. We were completely surprised by this decision, because this procedure was not discussed in any way in advance with us. As a traditional family business, we have a different understanding of partnership. “The supply of previously non-licensed Internet platforms, which obtain their products mainly from the gray market, counteracts our marketing strategy,” says Kim-Eva Wempe.

While we usually don’t post our own views & opinions in Weltweit, this too interesting not to comment. Wempe must certainly be one of NOMOS biggest retailers and the partnership dates back the 1995. Wempe has done countless cool limited editions with them. To say it’s a firm statement would be a gross understatement!
At Minimatikal and Ace Jewelers our love for NOMOS hasn’t faded one bit – and we’ll be revealing something really cool soon!
