NOMOS Glashütte Tangente neomatik 41 Update ruthenium

NOMOS Glashütte presents a new version of its successful Tangente neomatik 41 Update model, featuring a dial refined with ruthenium, turning it elegantly dark. The innovative caliber technology and reengineered date display of this model recently won over the jury of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève, the most important award in the watchmaking world.

The dashing new dial is enhanced with ruthenium, a member of the platinum group and a very rare element. Depending on the light conditions, the color shifts between dark gray and golden brown—with unwavering elegance. The date ring that circumscribes the dial bears two contrasting red markings that frame the current date, a design that is exclusive to NOMOS Glashütte.

With DUW 6101, the second neomatik movement from NOMOS Glashütte, the watchmaking company has set a groundbreaking new standard. This ultra-thin caliber measures just 3.6 mm in height. The quick-change date function can be easily set with a slight turn of the crown in either direction.

With a diameter of 41 millimeters, Tangente Update is a large watch, and particularly masculine in its new dial color. This impression is enhanced by a robust stainless steel case and a sapphire crystal back, which displays the richly decorated caliber at work within.

Tangente neomatik 41 Update ruthenium is available at select retailers from spring 2019.
