Any long-time reader of worn&wound knows of our affinity for German watches. From tough purpose-driven brands like Sinn and Damasko to Bauhaus stalwarts like Nomos and Stowa, the Germans are in a league of their own with their unique blend of value, engineering, and design. Last week, we announced two new watches from Sinn, the U212 (EZM 16) and the limited edition 1800 S Damaszener. Today, we are checking in on some of our other favorite German firms and taking a look at a few of their recent releases, as well as some that you should definitely keep an eye on in the future.
Timeless Luxury Watches x Nomos: Midnight Edition Orion
Earlier this year, Texas retailer Timeless Luxury wowed us with their blue-dialed Club collaboration with German watchmaker, Nomos. This week, they announced their second collaborative watch with the brand and unsurprisingly, it’s quite a looker. Using the versatile 38mm Orion model as a base, the Orion Midnight Edition features a new blue dial similar to the one found on the Zurich blaugold, but a shade darker (hence, the name). There are two versions of the watch: one with silver accents and the other with gold, with each style limited to just 75 pieces. Both are stunning, but the gold variant is especially beautiful with the warm indices contrasting wonderfully against the inky blue of the dial.
