Lux Weißgold

Lux is Latin for light and luster—and is he name of this wonderful watch. With a hint of Berlin to it, this model may just be the boldest, most impressive watch in the new selection from NOMOS Glashütte. The dial is light blue, like the sky over the city on fair days, and graced with fine detailing on its white face. It is certainly not something that is going to go unnoticed, even in the blur of today’s fast-paced consumer world, and it is not a watch that you can forget in a hurry.

Notable, above all, is the watch’s form: the tonneau case flatters the wrist, giving the caliber plenty of room—and so more than measuring up to the more usual round form.
