A newcomer in the Zürich family: hardly on the market, the two youngest members of the Zürich family from NOMOS Glashütte have already convinced customers and the specialized public in equal measure. The most recent award was given to the Zürich braungold; this watch has just been nominated for the Designpreis der Bunderepublik Deutschland (Design Prize of the Federal Republic of Germany).
Almost routine already: along with the iF Design Award and the American Good Design Award, the Zürich model also won this year’s red dot design award. Zürich is the Watch of the Year in Germany, Austria, and the Netherlands and was also crowned with the Chrono Award, the Goldene Unruh (Golden Balance Wheel), and the Audience Award of Munichtime—and thereby already boasts 13 prizes.
We at NOMOS Glashütte are greatly pleased. After all, Zürich is a watch also for a second and third look: the idea that one could get one’s fill of viewing all the logical twists, clever turns, geometrical forms, and elegantly polished surfaces is hardly imaginable.
The Zürich becomes even more elegant (is it possible?) in the two new versions that have now come onto the market: the original Zürich in dark and light, with date and without it, and the world-time variant are joined by the Zürich braungold, the new nominee, and its sister model, the Zürich blaugold. In both of the latter, the NOMOS self-winding caliber Epsilon ensures the highest accuracy; both display a special dial adorned with the traditional Glashütte sunray finish and then plated in brown or blue, respectively.
Some customers have trouble choosing. The choice the blue-ribbon jury of the Design Prize of the Federal Republic of Germany makes will be announced in the fall of this year.
