NOMOS Glashütte

NOMOS Glashütte, one of only a handful of owner-operated watchmaking companies worldwide, crafts fine mechanical timepieces in Glashütte, Germany.


This somewhat larger Club model measures 38.5 millimeters in diameter. A watch that looks perfect on more robust wrists.


One of the most robust NOMOS timepieces. A watch without airs and graces, but one which always looks good—in meetings, while free running, or cutting a rug on the dance floor. Yet its inner values are just as convincing: with the high-end, handmade calibers from NOMOS ticking within.

An update for the wrist: The classic model with a large dial and neomatik circular date.


This is NOMOS Glashütte: Tangente, the round watch with the many right angles, embodies the Glashütte watchmaking company like no other. Tangente, our prizewinning classic for the wrist, has been a continuous bestseller for 25 years.

This automatic model measures just under 39 millimeters in diameter, though the elongated lugs and incredibly slender case make it appear even larger.


In Orion we have elevated the essentials to a fine art: This watch is more refined, restrained, and elegant than the timepieces that have gone before. Orion is a watch for life (and longer).

NOMOS' creative team is based in Berlin, a two-hour drive north of Glashütte. This is where all the design work takes place, and many other things that are not directly connected to producing watches – but with the brand. Berlinerblau is how NOMOS Glashütte manages to combine the finest watchmaking with outstanding product design and a dash of Berlin; a unique combination in the world of luxury watches. And a successful one, since NOMOS Glashütte has received around 140 international awards for design, branding, and quality.

“Glashütte, the world-famous home of German horology—for 175 years. And in the middle of it all: the NOMOS workshops”

NOMOS Glashütte produces all eleven of its calibers in-house in Glashütte. The finest mechanical watches have been crafted in this small town for over 170 years, and its designation of origin is strictly protected. The name of "Glashütte" can only be used on watches that have at least 50 percent of their calibers' value produced locally. At NOMOS Glashütte, up to 95 percent of the calibers' value is created in-house – giving the watchmaking company complete quality control. Its proprietary escapement, the NOMOS swing system, was another significant step towards independence for the brand.

In 2018, NOMOS Glashütte presented its neomatik date caliber (DUW 6101). This is its eleventh proprietary movement, and it features a cutting-edge date mechanism that allows the wearer to set the date forwards or backwards with only a half-turn of the crown. As the date ring is wrapped around the outside of the caliber within, DUW 6101 is perfect for larger watches and date displays right at the edge of the dial. At just 3.6 millimeters in height, this neomatik date caliber is also incredibly slender for an automatic. DUW stands for "NOMOS Glashütte Deutsche Uhrenwerke" – which underlines the company's credentials as a caliber producer. A mechanical movement with DUW in its name has been produced using traditional craftmanship and with great care in Glashütte, Germany.



NOMOS Glashütte, founded by Roland Schwertner in 1990, has grown to become Germany's largest producer of mechanical watches. Even though most production processes rely on handcraft! Today around 300 people work for NOMOS Glashütte – with the majority located in the traditional watchmaking town of Glashütte, renowned for its high-quality mechanical timepieces. A small number of NOMOS employees are also based in Berlin and New York.
