Nomos is a brand that should need little introduction on w&w. A staff and crowd favorite, Nomos’ watches exude style, elegance and value like no other brand. Made in Glashütte, these in-house beauties are in a class of their own, something a mere glance at pieces like the Orion 38 Datum, Club and Metro will surely make obvious. Last year at Baselworld, Nomos announced a new watch, the Minimatik, but more significantly, a new movement; the DUW 3001. This ultra-thin automatic suggested a lot of great things to come, watches that would maintain the pure lines and restrained case dimensions of their existing hand-wound watches, but add the convenience of rotor winding.
In the year that followed, Nomos released a line within most of their lines called “neomatik” which added the 3001 movement as an option alongside other hand-wound calibers. Available in two color ways per watch line, kind of a classic silver as well as a peachier champagne. So, for example, there are now multiple automatic Orion and Metro options, easily distinguishable by the words “neomatik” on the dial.
