Why We Love It
NOMOS is a brand that has surged in popularity in recent years for two main reasons; in-house movements, and clean designs at accessible pricing.
Featuring a 36mm steel case and a brushed silver satin dial, minimalism is at the forefront, which is exactly what draws so many collectors to the German brand. Within the dial sits a undersized sub-seconds dial, with blued steel hands offering a touch of color to the minimalist design. Turning the watch over is where you really see NOMOS shine, with their attractive in-house movements.
As a daily wearer, it offers all of the Bauhaus appeal that you could possibly want. And this lightly pre-owned example is offered significantly under retail!
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.
