NOMOS Glashütte neomatik 41 Update – New Versions of Tangente, Orion, and Ludwig Models Featuring the Ring Date Complication Powered by Caliber DUW 6101

At Baselworld 2018, NOMOS Glashütte announced the induction of a new in-house built caliber, the neomatik date (DUW 6101). The German watch making company has equipped three NOMOS icons – Tangente, Orion, and Ludwig –with this new caliber and created a tailor-made date design for each. It is not only aesthetically innovative; it can also be set both forwards and backwards quickly and easily.

All three watches have, at just under 41 millimeters in diameter, considerably grown in size and yet remain slender. Thanks to the large new caliber within, each also has its own date display.

Orion neomatik wears a generously proportioned date on the edge of the dial at three o’clock – balanced, classic, and with a unique typography.

In Ludwig neomatik, the date is also placed at the edge of the dial—this time at four o’clock, elegantly integrated into Roman hour numerals.

In Tangente update version, the date ring features two red dots, which frame the current date and underline Tangente’s design-orientated character. This type of date display is entirely new and exclusive to NOMOS Glashütte.

This caliber not only allows designers to create tailor made solutions and the perfect date display for each watch but also conveys a sense of the concentrated watchmaking expertise behind the dial. The movement side of the new watches is also something special: The neomatik date caliber is richly equipped and luxuriously decorated—for example with the embossed and gold-plated engraving on the rotor.

NOMOS Glashütte brought the first neomatik caliber (DUW 3001) onto the market in 2015, which caused a sensation: Such slender automatic watches had not been produced in series until then. Now, with DUW 6101, the second neomatik caliber, NOMOS Glashütte is setting a pioneering new standard for date watches as well.

Tangente neomatik 41 Update, Orion neomatik 41 date, and Ludwig neomatik 41 date are the full names of these new models. All three are available with selected retailers from mid-May.
