Why We Love it

If you haven’t heard of NOMOS, listen up!

Over the past several years, the company has surged in popularity due to its minimalist, clean designs, German origins, and attractive price points. Few other brands pack such comprehensive horological value into their wares as the Glashütte-based firm, which was founded just weeks after the fall of the Berlin Wall. 

The particular NOMOS we have here is a Ludwig 38 from the 2020s. Unabashedly Bauhaus in inspiration, it’s housed in a 38mm stainless steel case with ‘holey’ lugs, a sapphire crystal, and a signed crown. It features a striking, glossy white dial with black Roman indices, a matching, blued steel handset, and an excellent signed brown shell cordovan leather strap with a matching signed steel pin buckle.

Powering the Ludwig 38 is one of the secrets to the NOMOS brand: the in-house, hand-wound Alpha caliber with a power reserve of 43 hours. One of many such in-house movements produced by the company, it’s simple, reliable, precise. 

Highly considered in design and accompanied by its factory goodies, this is a dress (or everyday) watch that’s not to be missed.

Overall Condition

The case is in outstanding condition overall showing faint signs of wear from gentle use. Gloss white dial with printed 'Roman' and stick indices is in as-new condition with matching blued-steel handset. Signed crown.

Brand Story

+
The little town of Glashütte, situated close to the eastern edge of Germany and home to only 7,000 people, is the birthplace of German watchmaking. Glashütte is home to brands like A. Lange & Söhne, Mühle, and Glashütte Original, all incredible brands in their own right. But there is another brand that calls this little area of Germany home, and that is NOMOS.

NOMOS was founded by Roland Schwertner on January 10th, 1990, two months after the fall of the Berlin Wall. For the next 15 years the company created multiple patents for watch components--like date mechanisms and power reserve indicators--all in preparation for the day they would build their own movements in-house. That day came in 2005 when the firm released the Tangomat, powered by an automatic caliber all their own, and at a price point that virtually no other manufacturer could touch.

As the years rolled on, NOMOS continued in that spirit of affordable self-sufficiency, one of creating in-house movements and selling their watches at prices that belie the care and quality of construction that go into producing them.
