NOMOS Glashütte Ahoi Limited Edition Watches to Support Ärzte ohne Grenzen Deutschland, the German Section of Doctors Without Borders

This year, NOMOS Glashütte has created two limited edition Ahoi watches to support the charity work of Ärzte ohne Grenzen Deutschland, the German section of Doctors Without Borders.

NOMOS Glashütte started making limited-edition timepieces for Doctors Without Borders Germany in 2012. Celebrating the eighth year of this successful collaboration, the German watchmaking company is now offering the robust automatic model Ahoi in two elegant yet sporty versions with a metal bracelet.

Whether in the smaller version with an exceptionally slender case or in the larger version with a date function, both of the new Ahoi models are supporting the Nobel Prize-winning organization in the same tried-and-tested way: Every single watch raises funds for humanitarian aid around the world. Both of these new watch models feature a red twelve, which symbolizes the charity’s tireless work.

Ahoi is the sportiest watch in the NOMOS collection. Featuring a robust case and an in-house developed caliber, this automatic timepiece can be worn almost anywhere. It offers an impressive water resistance of 200 meters. The six screws holding the back firm and the securely guarded crown ensure that everything will stay watertight.
