“Whichever one is your favorite: We produce only the best watches. With our base of watchmaking knowledge, drawing on over 170 years of tradition, a great deal of craftsmanship—and a dash of high-tech where it is more effective than working by hand. Our town is renowned worldwide as a center of fine watchmaking. Not only do the best watchmakers in the country work in Glashütte; this is also the location of the famous horology school where generations of Swiss watchmakers once learned their trade.
There are a number of mechanical watch producers in Glashütte. However, NOMOS Glashütte is the company that does everything itself: DUW 3001 is the tenth proprietary caliber from our brand. Purchasing movements—the heart of a mechanical watch—from third parties is the norm in the watchmaking world. This, for us, is out of the question, since we can only ensure the quality of our timepieces by building the entire caliber by ourselves. In purchasing a NOMOS watch, you are acquiring a timepiece that has only been allowed to leave our workshops after over 50 strict quality controls. We go to levels of effort that many would consider extreme. This is why buying a NOMOS watch is an investment in lasting values—in something that stands the test of time. You have my word.”
