German invasion Nomos Glashütte

Post by Ocean on 2013-04-17, 09:12



Nomos Glashütte, a watch brand very popular in its native Germany but not as well-known here in the States, is finally making a big push in America, beginning with its flagship timepiece, the starkly designed — and multiple design-award-winning — Tangente watch, which applies Bauhaus design principles to its dial.

Watch aficionados are likely familiar with the German watchmaking town of Glashütte, and the two major luxury brands that hail from there, A. Lange & Söhne and Glashütte Original. (Another German watch company, Tutima, has recently moved some manufacturing there as well.) Nomos, founded in 1991, has a few aspects in common with the “big two” Saxon watch brands, in that it makes its own movements and incorporates traditional Glashütte elements into them, such as three-quarters plates and Glashütte wave and sunburst decorations. However, Nomos is different in that its watches are by and large much more affordably priced, with steel cases and mostly simple complications.

Sigh...

So beautiful, so out of my price range.

$1,750 for a solid caseback, $2,020 for a sapphire back. So... $270 for a sapphire crystal?
