NOMOS Glashütte is a German watchmaker headquartered in Glashütte, Saxony, specialising in artisan manual-winding and automated mechanical timepieces. Roland Schwertner started it in January 1990, two months after the collapse of the Berlin Wall. Susanne Günther created the designs for the inaugural collection, drawing inspiration from the Bauhaus pure style. The clean and modernist look of NOMOS designs is well-known.
NOMOS watches are well-known for their innovative and patent-protected designs. Their date functions, for example, which are fixed onto rubies and then set around the movement, offer the case of the watch a sleeker, flatter appearance while also adding indisputable elegance. The crescent-shaped power reserve indications of NOMOS Glashütte watches are another proprietary design, adding leverage to the brand’s quality requirements and unrivalled understanding of the luxury watchmaking business.
