Classy midnight blue and gold dials, minimalist Bauhaus design, an in-house movement, long luscious lugs, and killer casework starting at $1,920? That can only be a Nomos.
Nomos introduced the Orion in 1992 when the company was young, and the watch has been a cornerstone of their catalog ever since. These new midnight blue and gold models are either 33 or 38 millimeters across, both excellent dress-watch sizes. However, don’t let the number “33” mislead you; the Orion’s lugs are so long that this model will reach around even my seven-inch wrist for a natural fit. The 38 offers a similar fit, but with a wide-open dial for a more commanding presence.
