NOMOS GLASHÜTTE—PERFECTLY PREPARED

Now it’s time—for the USA: After our successful press event in NYC in June, Glashütte is ticking a little more American these days. NOMOS watchmakers are learning English, sporting stars and stripes, and showing off their best cowboy style. But whatever they’re doing—whether it’s working on a Tangente, Zürich Weltzeit, or even a miniature Statue of Liberty—our watchmakers practice their craft with skill, patience, and a great deal of attention to detail.

NIGHT SHIFT AT NOMOS GLASHÜTTE

Another glimpse inside our watchmaking workshops: the night shift at NOMOS Glashütte, handcrafting fine mechanical timepieces. Watchmakers busy constructing calibers, inserting balances, mounting dials, and giving each and every NOMOS watch a final polish, ensuring that each one ticks just right. This requires concentration, passion, a keen eye, and a steady hand—so they tend to go easy on the coffee, no matter what time of night it is.

Glimpse inside the NOMOS Glashütte Atelier

In 2013, NOMOS Glashütte founded Deutsche Uhrenwerke NOMOS Glashütte—a new designation that shows exactly what we are capable of. The two new movements launched at the same time, DUW 1001 and 2002, bear this inscription, and tick away in Lambda and Lux: The new gold collection—timepieces made in our company’s specialist atelier in the finest Glashütte watchmaking tradition but with a highly contemporary design—has attracted scores of new admirers. If you're curious, you can spend a few minutes watching how these fine timepieces are built.

Look over the watchmakers' shoulders

Plenty of tradition and handcraft—combined with high-tech, where it outperforms handcraft: That is NOMOS Glashütte. All our movements are built in-house and by ourselves in Glashütte. This also applies to our watches—Tangente, Orion, Zürich and all the other models—many of which are already considered classics. You can find out how we do this by visiting us in Glashütte and taking a tour. In the meantime, this short film can give you a first impression of what we do.
