One of our favorite collabs of last year came from Nomos and our friends at Fratello in the creation of a unique “panda”-esque Weltzeit “The Hague” worldtimer. The black and off-white combo elevated the watch in a stylish manner that had us wishing for way more than the 25 examples that were produced. If you weren’t able to snag one of those, we’ve got good news for you, the pair are making another one, this time in dark blue, and 100 examples are planned for production. A few new changes are also included here, but underneath is the same Zürich Weltzeit worldtimer we know and love from NOMOS.
The high contrast we saw in the first version returns here with a dark blue theme that welcomes orange accents in the chapter ring and, unlike the original, on the hands of the running seconds indication at 6 o’clock. The biggest departure, however, comes in the form of a new ‘home’ icon at 3 o’clock, which now resembles a windmill in a fitting nod to the Dutch roots of the Fratello website. It’s a great looking icon, and especially relevant to those with Dutch roots (or any Max Verstappen fans out there).
