Berlinerblau: NOMOS’ in-house creative agency in Berlin
NOMOS produces fine watches in Glashütte; the complete watchmaking company works there. Berlin, however—the European capital for art and design a two hour and ten minute drive north of Glashütte—is where the NOMOS in-house creative agency Berlinerblau is based. Here, in the heart of Kreuzberg, next to the canal surrounded by art galleries, bicycle stores, juice bars, and chic cafes, across from the farmers market and within earshot of the bustling street below, everything that isn’t directly related to constructing watches is done. This is where catalogs are written, which we hope you enjoy reading. This is where short films are shot, posters are designed, websites developed, watches photographed, stands and packaging created—and watch designs as well. Around 30 people work here with passion, commitment, and of course joy for NOMOS Glashütte.
Renowned designers and artists such as Simon Husslein and Stephan Hürlemann from Studio Hannes Wettstein, Tilman Wendland, Karin Sieber, Axel Kufus, Mark Braun and Werner Aisslinger, Sarah Illenberger, Thomas Höhnel, Michael Paul, Florian Braun, and many others work in this growing team (some full-time, some freelance, managed by Judith Borowski). Either separately or together, they search for the best solutions for cases, dials, crowns, hands, case decorations, and watch presentation respectively. Whether Lux and Lambda, Zürich, Metro, Tangente or Orion: Sometimes, in a modest way, we are also a little proud of all the multiple prizewinning watches from NOMOS Glashütte. After all, they are not only particularly fine. They are also perhaps the most beautiful things that can happen to a wrist.
