All these new lines are very much Nomos, but they stretch the comfort zone of the brand’s design language. There’s more colour, more playfulness, and greater complexity in construction. Of course, the core is still that round steel watch, like the Tangente and Orion, with a pared-back design. But there’s also the Nomos take on a diver (Ahoi), a drive watch (the Autobahn), and pure dress watches (Lambda). We’re also seeing a greater diversity of straps — from a brief dalliance in Perlon, to a new, more robust nylon offering… More here.
I like Nomos, but I have not been too impressed by the designs of some of their lines. These, however, offer something new and unique. In a world where so many brands look back to recreating vintage designs it is great to see a modern form that manages to combine personality, warmth and subtlety.
