NOMOS Glashütte Special Edition Tangente – A Century of Bauhaus

German watch manufacture NOMOS Glashütte presents a limited edition Tangente watch model to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus movement.

In 2019 the German Bauhaus movement is turning 100 years old. To mark the occasion, Tangente is available in a nine-part special edition, with each version limited to only 100 timepieces.

These watches come in three sizes—33, 35, and 38 millimeters in diameter, for men and women alike, and each one comes in every primary color: a sketch paper colored dial, black numerals and hands, encircled by a ring of red, yellow, or blue. Paul Klee’s sketches were one of the sources of inspiration for these watches. The hands follow a color ring, elegantly depicting the basic principle of the watch: time moving in a circle.

The models of this special edition Tangente—a century of Bauhaus will be available at selected retailers from the end of August 2018.
