Nomos Glashütte Zürich Automatic

NOMOS Glashuette presents Zurich, the new automatic watch model which combines the best elements from Glashütte and Switzerland. It has an automatic caliber, is quite elegant, and a bit more expensive.

Zurich – one of the most expensive cities in the world, highly international, yet still just a village. It has the distinction of being one of the cities with the highest quality of living. It is known for its banks, the elegant Bahnhofstraße, the beautiful “badis” (bath houses), and the infamous Platzspitz park. And now Zurich is the city of a watch: the new Zürich model. Rounded corners, parallel bevels, massive elegance. It might sound paradoxical, but it is very beautiful, very NOMOS Glashütte.

The automatic movement in this new NOMOS watch comes from the Glashütte manufactory: the high end Epsilon caliber well-known from the Tangomat and Club Automat. It is therefore not a product of Switzerland, but is made entirely in the Mecca of fine watchmaking in Saxony. The watch case, however, hails from the Swiss confederacy; and the precision of its highly polished finishing is in no way inferior to the accuracy displayed in the finissage of the movement.
Big, but neither threatening nor gaudy, and anything but pretentious. Zürich is a solid (men’s) watch that remains discreet despite its size. Finally NOMOS Glashütte now has a watch to offer those who love big watches, maybe because they themselves are somewhat larger or because fashion has greatly changed the way one looks at watches. The new NOMOS watch is for people with a clear sense of reason: this model reflects a love for logic and for the art of engineering. All the forms in the case are geometrical, created from simple individual shapes: a watch of true (masculine) beauty.

Zürich (also with date indicator option) will be available in the fine watch and jewelry stores from the beginning of November. Later, NOMOS will also be introducing a variation with world clock.
