Nomos Glashütte Special Edition Orion UNIFICATION NOMOS

Nomos Glashütte presents a limited edition of 20 Orion models – “Unification-NOMOS” – twenty years after the Fall of the Berlin Wall. Each one in gray and each one carries the name of a town.

20 times 20 watches, each limited to 20 items. No other NOMOS-watch was so strictly rationed. For those in a position to choose, it is not an easy choice because every watch is gray. There is nothing arbitrary about the different tones of gray: Michael Paul, 34, watch designer from Berlin, visited towns in provincial, eastern Germany, measured the different tones of gray and then used the results to make dials. The watches are called after these towns and the watch series is called Unification-NOMOS, obviously to coincide with the anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall.

The limited edition Unification-NOMOS that has just been completed will be available in the shops before the 20th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall. All 20 times 20 watches are individually fitted in accordance with the standard Orion-model of the Glashütte manufactory. Some have sapphire crystal backs, some have not, some have steel indices and some have ones that are gold plated. The price is based on the back: the watches with a sapphire crystal back cost 1,240 euros, the others cost 1,040 euros. There is just one unusual watch model (In gold) that costs 4,360 euros.
