Glashütte is a small town nestled between the forests and hills of southeast Germany, halfway between Berlin and Prague. This is where NOMOS Glashütte, one of the few owner-operated watchmaking companies in the world, creates the finest mechanical timepieces. NOMOS watchmakers count among the very best in their field–what they have mastered is still a challenge for their colleagues elsewhere. That is because watches have been crafted in Glashütte for many generations–for over 170 years, to be precise.
NOMOS Glashütte creates and produces watches in accordance with the principles of the Deutscher Werkbund, the precursor to the Bauhaus movement: The combination of outstanding craftsmanship with the renowned prowess of German engineering on the one hand, and of advanced research with state-of-the-art technology on the other, is the foundation for the superior quality of its timepieces. The designers from NOMOS’ in-house creative agency in Berlin create their superb form.
The characteristics shared by all NOMOS watches include top-quality materials, refined dials, elegant and usually slender hands, narrow bezels, and an exceptionally clear form–many models have long been considered classics. Furthermore, they have received well over 130 prizes for design and quality.
