News from NOMOS

July 2017


A new declaration of love for our multiple prizewinning model Metro: The midnight blue neomatik version of this NOMOS bestseller has received the Red Dot Award 2017 for product design.

For NOMOS Glashütte, this is the tenth Red Dot Award—and Metro alone has already received this honor twice. This prestigious prize is an internationally recognized seal of quality, and has been awarded since 1954 in the form of a design competition. This year, producers and designers from 54 countries submitted a total of 5500 innovative products: a record!

We are delighted to receive this award, and will continue to make outstanding timepieces.

We love watches and would love to tell everyone in the world about them. Which we do—and NOMOS Glashütte has received an award for the way we write about our watches, present them in catalogs, films, and online. This is the second time that the company has received the German Brand Award. This year, NOMOS Glashütte is the winner of the luxury category.

It’s something to celebrate—both at our watchmaking workshops in Glashütte and in our design studio in Berlin. This award honors outstanding achievement in branding and marketing strategy. Founded by the German Design Council and initiated by the German parliament in 1953, today it represents the international design and branding community in Germany.

New watches for water from NOMOS Glashütte: the Aqua series

They certainly made a splash at Baselworld, the world’s largest watch show: 16 watches, some larger, some smaller, for men and women, and in four eye-catching colors. Based on the NOMOS models Club and Ahoi, this is a series of highly precise and particularly water-resistant timepieces, which can withstand whatever life throws at them and let their wearers look good at the same time—above water or below, quite automatically so.

More turnover, more watches, more employees, and, yes, more champagne bubbles too: NOMOS Glashütte has just enjoyed a very good year—the most successful in the company’s history. And all the better, since the watch industry in general is turbulent: "That things are going so well for us during these times makes us twice as happy," says NOMOS CEO Uwe Ahrendt. Now for 2017 and our most important New Year’s resolution: We’ll continue to build the best watches—that’s a promise!

Baselworld 2016

Like the German football team captained by Fritz Walter back in 1954, NOMOS Glashütte won big this year in Switzerland—not in Bern but in Basel: NOMOS was the watch company of the hour at Baselworld 2016. Counter to the overall trend in the industry, we are currently one of the very few companies seeing increased growth—leading in almost all areas. Baselworld also saw the launch of the neomatik series, which followed the immense success of the quickly sold-out 1st edition.

Automatic elevated to the square

We assume you have already seen the neomatik version of the classic NOMOS model Tetra: bigger, thinner, and more masculine than before. Or rather two versions, since we are not talking about one but two watches. Tetra neomatik comes in white as well as deep navy blue—with the dial of Tetra neomatik tiefblau being unmistakably related to that of Ahoi Atlantik.
