The incredibly innovative NOMOS in-house caliber DUW 6101 with a quick-set date function is also known as neomatik caliber with date. This exceptionally slender self-winding movement measures a 35.2-millimeter diameter and a mere 3.6 mm in height.

The NOMOS DUW 6101 calibre was completely reconstructed in-house. It features the date display at the edge of the dial. This is unique for timepieces with a diameter above 40mm and allows for a highly individual and harmonious watch aesthetic.

The date can be set both forward and backward quickly and easily, with only a few turns of the crown needed for any adjustment. Despite the limited movement height, this was made possible by a specially shaped gear wheel, which connects with the date disk.

The precision of the movement is ensured by the NOMOS swing system, the proprietary escapement denoted by the tempered blue balance spring.
