NOMOS Glashütte – Orion 38 Midnight Blue and Orion 33 Midnight Blue

This holiday season, NOMOS Glashütte has two suggestions from its Orion collection of mechanical timepieces.

One of these festive models measures 38 millimeters in diameter, while the other is just 33 millimeters across, making it suitable for smaller wrists. Both of these watches feature the same midnight blue dial with gold hands and indexes, and are handcrafted with precision and care by the skilled watchmakers of NOMOS Glashütte.

While perfect for celebrating the most wonderful time of the year, the two models are also suitable for daily wear—and every season. Orion 38 midnight blue and Orion 33 midnight blue are the two newest members of the iconic Orion family of timepieces.

Orion is a classic model from NOMOS Glashütte. All watches in the Orion family feature domed sapphire crystal glass on both sides that gives them both invisible strength and visible beauty. The case is elegantly curved and the lugs taper around the wrist for a seamless fit. Initially introduced in 1992, Orion was one of the first watches to be developed by NOMOS Glashütte and continues to be a success today.

Both new versions feature manual winding thanks to the Alpha caliber, the most frequently made in-house movement from NOMOS Glashütte—for excellent precision and value. The midnight blue dial is deeper than the starry winter sky, while the slim-line cases are stunningly slender, just like all watches in the NOMOS collection.
