Tangomat GMT Plus from NOMOS Glashütte Wins the iF Product Design Award

Out of more than 3000 products, NOMOS Glashütte was able to win over the 49 members of the international jury with its Tangomat GMT Plus. The special feature of this watch, which is based on the design of the classic Tangente timepiece, is a second time zone and a new dial.

The designers of this unusual wristwatch with its automatic winding mechanism have focused on an especially clear and legible dial and simple operation. Inside the watch, the NOMOS movement Xi provides optimal accuracy.

The iF design awards are amongst the most prestigious international design prizes, honoring what are officially designated “Symbols of the Modern Age.” NOMOS Glashütte’s Zürich automatic watch received such an award in 2012. The Glashütte manufactory is delighted to add the latest prize to an already long list of awards for NOMOS’ Tangente/ Tangomat family: For the Tangomat GMT (“Wristwatch of the Year 2012”) and its siblings in the NOMOS catalog, the iF product design award is the 47th award since the year 2000. The iF design awards 2013 ceremony will take place in Munich next February.
