Alexandra Kluge, 28, is a watchmaker at the atelier of NOMOS Glashütte—and a master of her trade in every sense of the word. For over three years now, she has crafted here the Haute Horlogerie watches of our gold collection, which are among the finest ever to have been produced in Glashütte: gold chatons polished on elderberry pith, a hand-engraved greeting on the balance cock, Glashütte sunbeam polishing. Miss Kluge, aren’t you incredibly proud of yourself? “Oh, the artisan craftsmanship came from my grandfather,” she says—and she found working with gold rather intimidating at first. The NOMOS atelier just doesn’t seem to be the right place for braggers.
