The Tangente neomatik 41 Update from NOMOS Glashütte Wins the 2018 GPHG Award in the Challenge Category

At the prestigious Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève, NOMOS Glashütte took home an award for Tangente Update.

The Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) is regarded by some as the Oscars of the watchmaking industry. NOMOS Glashütte took home one of these prestigious awards for Tangente Update—and is the first non-Swiss manufacturer after A. Lange & Söhne to do so.

The GPHG awards are bestowed by a dedicated body, the Fondation du Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève. The GPHG presents its annual awards in a total of twelve categories. Despite many strong contenders, NOMOS Glashütte mastered the recently added “Challenge” category with Tangente neomatik 41 Update.

The new take on the classic Tangente is powered by an entirely reengineered movement—the neomatik date caliber (DUW 6101). Built with an integrated date mechanism, the automatic movement still measures just 3.6mm and features a strikingly slim profile.

Positioned at the outer edge of the movement, the date ring enables an entirely new calendar system: two red markers frame the respective date. The product of fine German craftsmanship and cutting-edge engineering, the innovative new movement has already been registered for two patents.
