NOMOS watches started in a market where some of the finest watchmakers are several hundred years old. A new upstart like NOMOS Watches from Glashütte, Germany needed to make a big statement to succeed and stay consistent. NOMOS utilizes 5th generation watchmakers and handles all the actual manufacturing in-house at their factory as a completely independent watchmaker with absolute quality assurance.
Nomos Glashütte has been in business since the 90s. They have already received over 130 awards despite being a small and young company. The DUW 1001, an 84-hour power reserve, and a manual-wind movement with a power reserve indicator are among their in-house calibers. The Nomos Swing System escapement is used in their newest automatic DUW 3001 movement. Here are a few Nomos Glashutte watches with outstanding features.
