The world of watchmaking is one of those worlds in which secrets are kept close to heart. It is such a competitive market that even the most minute detail could give a watch that little bit of an edge in the market. When considering watches, it is almost normal to consider first Swiss Made watches, however, not very far from Switzerland is a little town called Glashutte, which produces some of the finest watches.
Enter Nomos Glashutte, watchmakers from the German town, who had started some 30 years ago with just three people in a little apartment in Glashutte. Fast forward 32 years and the brand now employs up to two hundred people in three locations in Glashutte and several others across the world. Nomos now manufactures more watches in Glashutte than anyone else.
A quick search and you will find that Nomos has scored higher than Rolex and Omega in the IMWF Institute for Management and Economic Research for product and service, availability, customer satisfaction, innovation, and quality. As of 2022, the company has also been awarded over 160 times for its design and quality. The brand says this is down to the fact that its mechanical watches are repairable and timeless in design, which inevitably makes the watch sustainable.
The Tangente has been the brand’s bestselling watch among the Nomos range over the last 30 years. The latest version, the Tangente neomatik platinum grey, is an elegant masculine watch, which features a platinum meal coated dal and gold lettering that spells out neomatik. The term stands for new automatic, a movement used in and distinguishes all of Nomos’ highly efficient automatic watches, with a power reserve of u to 43 hours.
The Tangente starts at about $3,000 at NomosGlashutte.com.
