Are you looking for a quieter, refined watch? Nomos offers deliberately simple and thin watches for both men and women. The minimalistic designs and flat construction of the watches contribute to their wide appeal. If you're a fan of elegant, understated pieces, then you've found the right brand. Nomos watches function well as dress watches matched with a suit, but also with a polo shirt or a turtleneck sweater. Nomos watches are especially beloved amongst creative types.
The number of Nomos models has reached double digits over the past few years. Square and barrel-shaped watches have joined the more traditional round models. However, the overall design of the watches remains consistent. Nomos dials are always neat and clean, even those on models with multiple complications.
The Tangente model is a prime example of Nomos's style. The manual winding model with a subsidiary seconds dial has been in production since 1992. The Tangente was the first Nomos creation and was designed by Susanne Günther. It's still Nomos's bestseller. The colors, movement, and case size of the watches differentiate them from each other. A special edition is dedicated to supporting the organization Doctors Without Borders. A percentage of each watch sale is donated to emergency aid. The 33-mm Tangente is available for around 1,000 euros, while a new 38-mm version costs around 2,000 euros.
The Ahoi is a little larger. It has a 40-mm case and a few functional features that differentiate it from the typical Nomos look, such as crown protection with a screw-down crown. If you enjoy diving, sailing, or any other water sport, you should strongly consider the Ahoi, as it is especially well protected against water. It's officially waterproof to 200 m (20 bar) and new, costs 2,000 - 3,000 euros.
The Orion is the personal favorite of the Nomos creative team based in Berlin, Berlinerblau. This watch is beloved for its simple, plain design, which is characteristic of Nomos. The Club appeals to a younger audience, while the smart Ludwig is perfect for businessmen. For those desiring a larger piece, look no further than the Zürich.
If you are seeking a more prestigious look, the Lux and the Lambda are your answer. Both watches are available in white or rose gold and feature sapphire crystal glass backs. The armbands are made of genuine shell cordovan, an especially robust and moisture-resistant material. The price of a new Lux or Lambda is over 10,000 euros.
Their comparatively moderate price range contributes significantly to Nomos's success. This is also inspired by the Bauhaus movement; Hannes Beyer, the second Bauhaus director, lived by his motto of Volksbedarf statt Luxusbedarf - the needs of the people instead of the need for luxury. Although the general public today prefers cheaper quartz watches from Asia, in comparison to other Glashütte-based manufacturers, Nomos remains affordable.
