DUW 3001—flatter than nine stamps.

Flatter, finer, more elegant: With the automatic movement DUW 3001, NOMOS Glashütte is defining an entirely new standard of self-winding calibers. What makes this one particularly special is the combination of outstanding accuracy and extreme flatness. An in-house caliber of this kind was considered impossible in the watchmaking industry—until now.

Beautiful times: Berlinerblau, NOMOS’ in-house creative agency

What was the design process behind our latest watch models? And how does the form surrounding the fine interior of a NOMOS timepiece take shape, anyway? Berlinerblau, NOMOS’ in-house creative agency, is responsible for branding and design—and the meeting point for internationally renowned product designers. You can find out what they consider important when it comes to designing a NOMOS watch here.


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.


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.
