Getting to Know Nomos: 6 Important Nomos Watches

Nomos watches are well-known in their native Germany, but not nearly as familiar to tag heuer replica watch lovers in the U.S. as other Glashütte-based watch brands such as A. Lange & Söhne and Glashütte Original. Nomos watches, in fact, have their own distinctive look (the brand has won several international design awards) and are fairly reasonably priced despite the fact that they all have in-house movements made in the traditional Glashütte style. As the brand becomes more prominent in the U.S., we offer six Nomos watches that you should become familiar with.

Nomos introduced its first diver-style discount fake watch online, the Ahoi, in 2013. The Ahoi Atlantik Datum, launched the following year, carries the theme further with its lacquered “Atlantic blue” dial. The Ahoi Atlantik Datum contains the self-winding Nomos Zeta caliber, which powers the time, small seconds, and date display (“datum”). The watch’s case is 40 mm in diameter and features a sapphire exhibition caseback, fitted with six screws, as well as a screw-down crown. The hour and minute hands are gold-plated, with green Super-LumiNova inlays; the small seconds hand has a red lacquered finish. The Ahoi Atlantik Datum is water-resistant to 200 meters and comes on a distinctively nautical-looking black textile strap with a winged clasp.

The elements on the dial of the Nomos Lambda Rosegold are designed to resemble the motion of a mobile. The big arc-shaped indicator at the top displays the generous three-and-a-half-day power reserve, made possible by the two mainspring barrels in the movement, Nomos’s in-house, manual-winding Caliber DUW 1001. The 18k rose gold case is 42 mm in diameter and just 8.9 mm thick and features a see-through caseback. The hands are gold-plated and the granulated dial is silver-plated. The Lambda Rosegold comes on a hand-stitched brown cordovan leather strap with a rose gold clasp.

Nomos’s Lux Weissgold collection is notable for its cushion-shaped case made of 18k white gold (weissgold in German) and for the simplicity of the dial, which reminds one of an old-style kitchen timer. The Lux’s case is 40.4 mm x 36 mm; the dial is galvanized and white silver-plated with a periphery of printed eggshell blue. The hands are rhodium-plated. The best quality replica watch, powered by Nomos’s manual-winding caliber DUW 2002, is mounted on a hand-stitched shell cordovan black leather strap; the clasp is the same white gold as the case.

The Nomos Metro Datum Gangreserve contains the in-house DUW 4401 manual-wound movement, which is equipped with Nomos’s innovative “swing” system with a tempered blue balance spring. The stainless steel case measures 37 mm in diameter and has sapphire crystals in the front and back. Conceived by Berlin-based designer Mark Braun, the galvanized, silver-plated white dial features a pair of very thin, “quill-tip” hands in oxidized black steel for hours and minutes, a small seconds subdial with red hand at 6 o’clock, just above the date window, and an eye-catching, round power reserve window with red and white areas inside a mint-green wheel.

Nomos’s award-winning Tangente collection now features a watch whose proceeds help benefit an international charitable initiative. The Tangente 38 “Doctors Without Borders” Limited Edition USA is distinguished by its red numeral “12” atop the white, silver-plated dial and a special engraving on the back referring to the Doctors Without Borders, the Nobel Peace Prize-winning humanitarian medical organization. It also has black, oxidized hands in place of the traditional tempered blue hands of other Nomos Tangente models. There are four models total in the Doctors Without Borders edition, two specifically for the United Kingdom and two for the United States, each limited to 1,000 pieces. One hundred dollars (in the U.K. editions, 100 pounds) from the sale of each watch goes directly to Doctors Without Borders. The movement, the Nomos manual-winding Alpha caliber, is visible through a clear caseback.

One of the most understated world-time watches you’ll find, the Zürich Weltzeit is powered by the automatic Nomos Xi movement, equipped with an indicator for 24 world time zones. The high quality replica watch has a 10-part stainless steel case, 39 mm in diameter, with a domed sapphire crystal, and a galvanized silver-plated dial. The hands are faceted and rhodium-plated. Small seconds are on a subdial at 6 ‘clock and the time in 24-hour format is displayed on a disk at 3 o’clock, with a red pointer indicating the hour. The Nomos Zürich Weltzeit (“world time”) comes on a Horween shell cordovan leather strap.
