Introducing the Nomos Neomatik Nachtblau Collection

Share this story:

Nomos is no stranger to blue dials, having collaborated with Texas boutique Timeless Luxury on a series of well-received, blue-dialed watches (read our reviews of the Timeless Club and the most recent Timeless Club II). As part of its permanent collection, Nomos has just put out four new stunning timepieces in nachtblau, or midnight blue.

Nomos Neomatik Tangente Nachtblau; DUW-3001 automatic caliber.

All four new watches—which include the Minimatik, Metro Neomatik, Tetra Neomatik, and the Tangente Neomatik—feature Nomos’ in-house DUW-3001 (Glashütte Deutsche Uhrenwerke) automatic caliber, which was first unveiled in 2015. The DUW-3001 is the brand’s thinnest automatic movement, coming in at an impressive height of just 3.2mm. Furthermore, it’s fitted with Nomos’ in-house Swing System—a significant development for a brand with a long history of independence.

Check out all four models below.

Metro Neomatik Nachtblau

The Metro was a major milestone for Nomos; it was the first watch to feature a movement with the aforementioned Swing Sytstem. Beyond that, the Metro is simply a great watch with one of Nomos’ quirkiest designs (brought to life by famed industrial designer, Mark Braun). It’s the standout of the four in my book.

Case: 35mm
Dial: Lacquered, midnight blue with green print
Hands: Rhodium-plated; neon orange seconds hand
Strap: 17mm Horween black shell cordovan
Price: $3,960

Minimatik Nachtblau

First unveiled at Baselword 2015, the Minimatik was the showcase for the then-new DUW-3001 automatic caliber. With design cues that harken to the Club and the Metro (with some Tangente thrown in for good measure), the Minimatik is equal parts playful and versatile. In blue, it feels a touch more mature.

Case: 35.5mm
Dial: Lacquered, midnight blue with pearled indexes and rose gold and green print
Hands: Rhodium-plated; neon orange seconds hand
Strap: 17mm Horween black shell cordovan
Price: $3,800

Tetra Neomatik Nachtblau

The Tetra line recently got a facelift at this year’s Basel, where Nomos introduced the larger 33mm model. On the wrist, the new Tetra wears exceptionally well, and it was definitely a standout at the fair. The addition of blue rounds out the series.

Case: 33mm x 33mm
Dial: Lacquered, midnight blue with green print
Hands: Rhodium-plated; neon orange seconds hand
Strap: 20mm Horween black shell cordovan
Price: $3,980

Tangente Neomatik Nachtblau

Nomos’ most senior design, the Tangente pulls from a historic German design and is perhaps the brand’s most austere model. In blue, however, the whole thing looks fresh and makes for a great addition to the Tangente family.

Case: 35mm
Dial: Lacquered, midnight blue with green and silver print
Hands: Rhodium-plated; neon orange seconds hand
Strap: 18mm Horween black shell cordovan
Price: $3,580
