More turnover, more watches, more employees, and, yes, more champagne bubbles too: NOMOS Glashütte has just enjoyed a very good year—the most successful in the company’s history. And all the better, since the watch industry in general is turbulent: "That things are going so well for us during these times makes us twice as happy," says NOMOS CEO Uwe Ahrendt. Now for 2017 and our most important New Year’s resolution: We’ll continue to build the best watches—that’s a promise!

Baselworld 2016

Like the German football team captained by Fritz Walter back in 1954, NOMOS Glashütte won big this year in Switzerland—not in Bern but in Basel: NOMOS was the watch company of the hour at Baselworld 2016. Counter to the overall trend in the industry, we are currently one of the very few companies seeing increased growth—leading in almost all areas. Baselworld also saw the launch of the neomatik series, which followed the immense success of the quickly sold-out 1st edition.

Automatic elevated to the square

We assume you have already seen the neomatik version of the classic NOMOS model Tetra: bigger, thinner, and more masculine than before. Or rather two versions, since we are not talking about one but two watches. Tetra neomatik comes in white as well as deep navy blue—with the dial of Tetra neomatik tiefblau being unmistakably related to that of Ahoi Atlantik.

Watchmaking from above

The word manufacture is comprised of two Latin roots: manus meaning, “hand” and factura, “to make.” In the watchmaking industry, a company is referred to as a manufactory if it creates and assembles its movements in-house, rather than sourcing them from third party suppliers. Today NOMOS Glashütte remains one of very few true watch manufactories in the world.

Ahoy, Berlin!

The last two weeks in Berlin have been some of the hottest this year! Thomas Höhnel, designer of the NOMOS Ahoi, spent them in the office (where else?) working on the new collection, which NOMOS Glashütte will be introducing very soon. But since this new collection is still under wraps, we thought instead we would ask Thomas, who has lived in the city for the past 16 years, to share some insider tips. What does Thomas Höhnel, designer of the NOMOS Ahoi, like to do on these long, warm summer days?
