The NOMOS enterprise
Glashütte lies in the eastern region of the Erzgebirge ("Ore Mountains") not far from the border with the Czech Republic. It is a town in which (almost) everything revolves around watches. It is said that the people in Glashütte have hearts that go 'tick-tock,' because they have been perfecting the art of fine watchmaking for generations. Here it is not uncommon for children already at the age of six to disassemble and analyze their parents' alarm clocks.
NOMOS is one of only a few watchmakers worldwide with the designation of manufactory.
