NOMOS – Manufacturer of fine watches
In the small town of Glashütte south of Berlin lies the head office of NOMOS, one of the world’s best watchmakers. Timepieces have been produced here since 1845. World renowned, NOMOS watches are appreciated for their outstanding quality.
In 1845 master watchmaker Ferdinand Adolph Lange was despatched to Glashütte to establish a watchmaking industry. Since then, the name of this small town has been synonymous with fine watches. Today, NOMOS Glashütte is the largest manufacturer of mechanical timepieces in Germany, says the company, which employs 260 staff at its head office.
NOMOS Glashütte not only produces watches. It exclusively develops and produces its own calibers, too. Each and every timepiece is made in-house, on site, in Glashütte. The company prides itself on its workmanship: from milling plates, bridges, and wheels, bluing screws, beveling edges, to finely regulating calibers – NOMOS watchmakers produce almost everything completely by hand.
NOMOS offers a broad assortment of fine watches, from functional and robust sports models with robust cases, reinforced seals, and protective sapphire crystal glass to fashionable models in the classic ‘Bauhaus’ style.
Tangente, one of the NOMOS Glashütte models, received the iF Design Award in 2019. This latest iF award was already the company’s fourth: its models Minimatik (2016), Tangente neomatik midnight blue (2017) and the Metro neomatik 39 silvercut (2018) were also accoladed.
