NOMOS Glashütte Ludwig Limited Edition 175 Years Watchmaking Glashütte

A historic town in the Free State of Saxony in Germany, Glashütte has been a center of fine watchmaking since 1845. To celebrate the 175 years of Glashütte watchmaking, German watch manufacture NOMOS Glashütte has created three special edition versions from its Ludwig family. Each model is limited to just 175 pieces, and regulated by NOMOS as a chronometer would be.

These three new versions of Ludwig have traditional features that are unusual for NOMOS timepieces. To start, all three have a polished, enamel-white dial, reminiscent of early pocket watches. However, modern production methods make these new watches stronger and more durable, and so even more beautiful.

The rounded hands in the classic leaf form are also special—as well as tempered blue, of course, according to Glashütte tradition. They ensure that these watches are exceptionally legible.

The sapphire crystal glass back features a limited edition engraving and the addition: “175 Years Watchmaking Glashütte.”

Alongside the hand-wound version with the NOMOS Alpha caliber (Ludwig – 175 Years Watchmaking Glashütte), there are two versions with innovative automatic calibers from NOMOS Glashütte: DUW 3001 (in Ludwig neomatik 39) and DUW 6101 (in Ludwig neomatik 41 date).

These two neomatik movements represent a new technical standard, as well as mechanical watchmaking taken to the highest level. Typical Glashütte features are visible through the sapphire crystal glass: the three-quarter plate, tempered blue screws, ribbed polishing, and the NOMOS swing system.

This in-house designed and built escapement sets the pace inside the caliber, and NOMOS is one of only a handful of watchmaking companies worldwide able to produce it.

Ludwig neomatik 41 date also features a date function with Roman numerals for the very first time.

And the fact that all three models are also regulated as a chronometer would be is an extra-special feature.
