Glashütte is a small town nestled between the forests and hills of southeast Germany, halfway between Berlin and Prague. This is where NOMOS Glashütte, one of the few owner-operated watchmaking companies in the world, creates the finest mechanical timepieces. NOMOS watchmakers count among the very best in their field—what they have mastered is still a challenge for their colleagues elsewhere. That is because watches have been crafted in Glashütte for many generations—for over 170 years, to be precise. NOMOS Glashütte creates and produces watches in accordance with the principles of the Deutscher Werkbund, the precursor to the Bauhaus movement: The combination of outstanding craftsmanship with the renowned prowess of German engineering on the one hand, and of advanced research with state-of-the-art technology on the other, is the foundation for the superior quality of its timepieces. The designers from NOMOS’ in-house creative agency in Berlin create their superb form. The characteristics shared by all NOMOS watches include top-quality materials, refined dials, elegant and usually slender hands, narrow bezels, and an exceptionally clear form—many models have long been considered classics. Furthermore, they have received well over 130 prizes for design and quality.
NOMOS Glashütte founded Deutsche Uhrenwerke NOMOS Glashütte in 2013, as a new designation that shows exactly what the watchmaking company is capable of. The two high-end calibers launched at the same time, DUW 1001 and 2002, tick inside the gold models Lambda and Lux. These timepieces form the gold collection—made in NOMOS’ specialist atelier in the finest Glashütte watchmaking tradition with a highly contemporary design—and have attracted scores of new admirers. If you're curious, you can spend a few minutes watching how these fine timepieces are built.
The new timepieces in the neomatik series are exceptionally slender—thanks to their ultra-thin movement. DUW 3001, the tenth caliber from NOMOS Glashütte, is defining an entirely new standard of self-winding watches: Only 3.2 millimeters in height, exceptionally precise, and equipped with NOMOS’ proprietary escapement, the NOMOS swing system. Like DUW 3001, it is groundbreaking in the world of fine timepieces and the product of many years of research and development.
