Nomos Glashütte is small but powerful. Nomos Glashütte is a 100 % independent manufacturer. Nomos Glashütte is a 100 % in-house watchmaking company. Nomos Glashütte watches are not expensive.
Nomos Glashütte is still underestimated! So I want to give you some deep insights and show you the newest creations …
Roland Schwertner founded Nomos Glashütte in 1990.
Today Nomos Glashütte belongs to five partners – with four of them working there. Therefore the company is independent and not part of any small or big group. Nomos Glashütte currently has a staff of 250 employees. The great majority of them, around 220, work in Glashütte – including the company’s own department for research and development.
The department for research and development is responsible not only for the development of calibers but also for their extreme production depth. Furthermore, it can take credit for several patents. Over 30 employees work for the subsidiaries Nomos Glashuette USA in New York and the in-house creative agency Berlinerblau in Berlin, which is responsible for branding, designing watches, and everything else that goes with it.
Nomos Glashütte is a watchmaking company that makes almost everything in-house.
All ten calibers for instance are proprietary and produced on-site in Glashütte.
Nomos Glashütte can therefore ascertain the quality of its calibres. The timepieces are crafted without external know-how and with a proprietary escapement, the so called Nomos swing system. This makes the company technologically independent. Already in the near future, all Nomos calibers will be equipped with the Nomos swing system, easily recognizable due to its blue balance spring.
The new and extremely thin automatic caliber DUW 3001 is the latest caliber developed and manufactured.
This movement ticks in the nematic series. It raised the bar, since many automatic movements by other producers are considerably larger, less precise, or markedly more expensive. The latter often due to the fact that calibres cannot be produced in series. With DUW 3001, Nomos Glashütte will grow further, since in the future, automatic timepieces will make up the larger part of the production.
The Nomos Glashütte collection consists of twelve model families with around 80 watch versions; mechanical timepieces in the price range of 1,000 to 4,000 Euro. The two haute horlogerie models in 18-carat rose or white gold, Lambda and Lux are the cherry on the cake. Only three of these timepieces are crafted a week and they cost between 12,800 and 15,800 euros. Most Nomos watch cases, however, are made from stainless steel and retail for under 4,000 Euro. Whether in gold or in steel: All timepieces represent an outstanding watchmaking craft, top quality materials, modern design, and an excellent value-for-money ratio.
Therefore the demand for Nomos watches is growing constantly – counter to the actual industry trend. In 2015 the company grew once again by around 30 percent and now makes an estimated turn-over of more than 50 Million Euro. In terms of quantities Nomos Glashütte is the largest producer in Germany and in the price range of 1,000 to 4,000 Euro globally one of the market leaders in mechanical watch sales.
If you need to know the price of a specific model, please let me know. I will provide you the requested prices in Euro in the comment section.
The watches today are exported to over 40 countries worldwide. Currently Nomos Glashütte is concentrating on rapidly expanding its US business. More employees are joining the company both in North America and in Europe. The aim for the company is to continue its twofold growth in size every three years, and for the brand to gain more recognition.
CEO Uwe Ahrendt told me: “Alexander, a watchmaking company that places craftsmanship and quality above all else cannot grow any faster.”
Nomos chief designer Judith Borowski is responsible for the straightforward German product design with a dash of Berlin: Renowned designers such as Werner Aisslinger, Mark Braun, and Axel Kufus work and worked along-side young creatives on the best timepieces. The work of the design team has been recognized with over 130 international prizes and awards – including the iF Product Design Award, Red Dot, and the Good Design Award, each multiple times.
Nomos Glashütte is extending the new elegant neomatik automatic series in 2016:
From left to right Metro, Minimatik, Ludwig, Tangente, Orion and will keep being produced with a white silver-plated or, as pictured here, champagne-colored dial. Joining them is the Nomos classic Tetra, glaring with its beautiful deep-blue dial.
After the success of the first edition the neomatik collection is extended: All timepieces are powered by the ultra-thin automatic Calibre DUW 3001. Besides a few changes made in relation to the first edition, the collection of self-winding watches is now complemented by model Tetra. Pictured here are the white silver-plated models of the Nomos automatic class.
