The German independent watchmaker NOMOS specializes in the production of clean, transparent and easy-to-reach watches. And to be honest, the models often have some interesting features, which give a nice twist to the Bauhaus-inspired design. From the slow-moving outward movement, more and more NOMOS collections are equipped with in-house Calibers, which connect the four clocks that we think are the best of NOMOS 2021.
The notion of the NOMOS Metro Neomatik 41 is actually in its name, because it is a modified version of the existing Metro Neomatik, and also includes the unusual but interesting features we first saw on Tangente. As a young fashion designer, she incorporates a 40.5mm polished metal bag, wire cables and a very thin bezel with a white, silver connector. Details here and there, as they are made and the fixed form for a few seconds straightens. The most amazing is the show of the day. Two bright neon orange markers “hug” the date from the floor and jump around the outer edge. Inside the DUW 6101 caliber only comes the NOMOS Swing-System with blued balance spring and fast (two-way) for the day.

NOMOS is a rare addition to the funk in its watches, and the cut of the Autobahn Director is clear evidence of that. The unique musical design, inspired by the dashboard elements is the most impressive feature. Second to it, is an elongated day window down, which shows yesterday, today and tomorrow at the same time. Plate made of the dish is available in white, black or blue with distinct lines of orange, gray or yellow. Thin hands show hours, minutes and seconds, the last of which is shown in a few notes. The final surprise is a bracelet, with a large bridle, with a perforated first. Once again we see the NOMOS ‘DUW 6101 Caliber, providing 42 hours of energy saving with a speed of 21,600vph.

The Club Sport Neomatik 42mm day has a large, NOMOS standard, stainless steel, coming in at 42mm. The twisting crown has a red “uncut” ring, and its water resistance votes 300m. The star of the show is a deep blue singing that features sunray brushing. White numbers and indices, combined with white hands like a sword make the clock look very good. The rear view is, again, the DUW 6101 movement, which is built in-house. The decoration is well done, with Glashütte Ribbing, perlage and blued straps.

NOMOS is not shy about associating with various friends, one of which is the case with ACE Jewelers, based in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The year 2021 was the fifth year in a row we saw NOMOS work with ACE, launching ACE x NOMOS Club 36 Blue Limited Edition. Copying one of the smallest watches NOMOS offers, the 36mm Club, comes in a well-polished metal box with long pockets. The singing is done in a deep blue cloud with good visuals, with bright orange numbers and indices (we are Dutch after that). By choosing either closed or view-through the rear, you are given the opportunity to unveil the NOMOS Alpha caliber inside Club 36.
