NOMOS Glashütte neomatik

NOMOS Glashütte neomatik Series

NOMOS Glashütte presents the neomatik series: two times five models in a completely new automatic collection. These watches are revolutionary: flat, elegant, and very accurate—cosmopolitan, cultivated, and contemporary too. The launch in fall begins with a 1st edition.

Some of the NOMOS neomatik models may appear familiar, while others are entirely new with Minimatik and Minimatik champagner leading the way. This is because each of the five core models—Tangente, Orion, Metro, Ludwig, and Minimatik—comes in two versions: with cyan blue accents on a white silver-plated dial on one, and with fine details in neon orange on a champagne-colored dial on the other. What makes them special, aside from their slender elegance, their accuracy, are the rather wild colors applied to the dials in homeopathic doses—the latest coup from the NOMOS designers in Berlin.

The attention that these watches attract is intentional: The movement working within them, the NOMOS caliber DUW 3001, is the motor of the next generation. It is already the tenth in-house built NOMOS caliber, measures just 3.2 millimeters in height, and so is under half the size of the other automatic calibers that can be found in watches in this price range. The reason: In contrast to all these calibers, almost all of which have been in production since the early 70s, DUW 3001 was developed using modern research and production methods. This enabled NOMOS Glashütte to halve tolerances, and significantly improve the efficiency and precision of this caliber.

“This movement is ready for series production, and NOMOS Glashütte for its launch into new market segments,” says NOMOS CEO Uwe Ahrendt, 46. It took a good three years for the R&D team to develop—the same department that is behind the NOMOS swing system, the new pace-setting part for NOMOS movements. “DUW 3001,” according to Ahrendt, “stands for best quality craftsmanship, outstanding technology, and for a modern Glashütte.”

Incidentally, the classic 35- or 36-millimeter diameter is being retained. By contrast, the neon accents on the dials and the particularly high-quality straps are new: Like those of the NOMOS gold watches, the straps of the neomatik series are also remborde and feature the in-house designed NOMOS buckle clasp—a work of art in itself. Furthermore, two of the ten watches are entirely new: Minimatik and Minimatik champagner. The watches that NOMOS Glashütte produces and delivers in 2015 will count among the 1st edition of neomatik. After a short neomatik pause, the watchmaking company will then continue with the series over the course of 2016.
