The most truly iconic of all NOMOS watches is maybe the NOMOS Glashütte Tangente. Showed off by the brand to this day as the watch which most clearly symbolizes the NOMOS ethos, this model is a real classic that continues to be a bestseller in the NOMOS Glashütte oeuvre. A prizewinner par excellence, the Tangente is a stunning timepiece that, like those who select it, exudes sophistication and a straightforward sense of confidence.
A circular watch boasting lots of right angles, the Tangente shows off the Glashütte watchmaking company ethos like no other. Tangente, NOMOS’ legendary classic for the wrist, has been a continuously adored model for 25 years. Bauhaus influenced and more, Tangente’s aesthetic and role as the first NOMOS watch means it represents the ideas of form follows function, making it known by all as a design classic.
Unfussy and minimal, a classic in its own right, the famous typography of the numbers on the Tangente is something to behold. Indeed, the Tangente always ticks as slim as a hand-wound, even if it is equipped with an automatic caliber, better still when with the neomatik caliber of the next crop of models. Such as neomatik date (DUW 6101)—automatic, the highest level of accuracy, and with the one-of-a-kind ring date for Tangente.
A huge amount of heritage and ability, combined with modern technology, where this is the right thing to do for precision, that is the NOMOS Glashütte identity. With the most classic of all NOMOS calibers, the hand-wound Alpha movement, Tangente is also available with movements that offer a date and power reserve indicator. And of course with self-winding: with the ultra-thin caliber DUW 3001 or, as Tangente neomatik 41 Update, with the neomatik date caliber DUW 6101.
Closer Look at the Tangente Collection
Tangente, the iconic NOMOS timepiece, is celebrating its new date from all angles, and showing it in a totally new way. The date ring, sitting far out around the edge of the dial, features two red dots that show the date today. An aesthetic that allows viewing of the new neomatik caliber inside. It's fresh and totally NOMOS Glashütte.
Creators of both automatic and manual-winding mechanical watches, German company NOMOS Glasshütte create timepieces of stunning simplicity. Founded in 1990 just two months after the fall of the Berlin Wall, NOMOS is a brand rooted in tradition yet one with its eyes firmly toward the future.
It should be noted that NOMOS Glasshütte is a brand that has managed to carve its own niche in the international watch market in less than thirty years. Facing stiff competition from Swiss rivals, the brand blazed its own trail to combine centuries of German watchmaking intelligence and skills with a clear sense of design. The result is a collection of highly technical and elegant timepieces that grace the wrist of many a connoisseur from the black forest to Berlin.
All in all, the NOMOS Glashütte Tangente is the biggest selling watch of any in the NOMOS collection. A bestseller in the legendary German brand’s collection, the Tangente is a Bauhaus informed model boasting a high powered calibre to boot. Not only this, but the fact that it is available in a wide variety of iterations and colours make the Tangente enduringly cool. For those people for whom classic design and technical quality are the pinnacle, the Tangente is a wonderful thing indeed.
