When it comes to European watchmaking, there are few towns as revered as Glashütte. It was the birthplace of watchmaking in Germany, after all, and today it’s home to a handful of the world’s most respected manufacturers. Among these is Nomos. Once a boutique operation of only a few employees, the company has grown to more than 100, and it’s no surprise why: Like its neighbors, Nomos produces its own movement in-house; unlike its neighbors, the company offers a line of luxury watches that even those without a Swiss bank account can afford.
These six models are fitted with four different movements, all made in-house by Nomos. The Alpha, Beta, and DUW 4101 offer hacking seconds and are hand-winding only—not automatic. The Zeta movement, which you’ll find on the Ludwig Automatik Datum, is the only truly automatic movement in this collection. Not only is it extremely thin, like the rest of the company’s movements, it’s also noted for its bidirectional winding capabilities. And like most other timepieces from Glashütte, all models are crafted with a three-quarter plate with perlage decoration to ensure stability of movement.
