Nomos Glashütte Tangente Sport

Nomos Glashütte presents a sportier watch from its Tangente family. Beautiful and incredibly comfortable to wear, this neomatik watch with a bracelet is water-resistant to 1000 feet.

Tangente Sport, or to use its full name, Tangente Sport neomatik 42 date is the first NOMOS watch designed especially with a bracelet. Tangente Sport and its sibling, the classic model Tangente – a NOMOS bestseller for over 25 years that has often been dubbed a “Bauhaus watch”- share a lot of qualities: the straightforward case, the striking typography, and being the embodiment of “form follows function.”

This NOMOS timepiece is making more of a splash than any previous one—and not just because of its 42-millimeter diameter. The movement, the NOMOS neomatik date caliber (DUW 6101), is protected from shocks and water by its reinforced case, sealing, sapphire crystal glass back, and crown protection.

Thanks to the slender neomatik caliber, Tangente Sport can be considered a small but perfectly proportioned vault. The slender movement within saves ample space in height, meaning its extreme robustness is packed into a tight unit—as is its notable water resistance: 1000 feet, which is also noted on the dial.

Tangente Sport comes in two colorways: classic white silver-plated and marine black. The extra color details in the latter allude to the deep ocean.

The amount of superluminova on the dial and hands has been increased in both varieties, which means it glows longer in the dark or underwater.

 

The strap on this new watch is also robust and long-lasting: The long sought-after NOMOS bracelet, consisting of 145 individual parts screwed together by hand, comes with the specially developed NOMOS deployant clasp.

Tangente Sport will be available in selected retailers from May.
