NOMOS Glashütte marks 50th anniversary of Doctors Without Borders by presenting the special edition Tangente 38 – 50 ans Médecins Sans Frontières watch.
In this pandemic year, people around the world need help more than ever. For this reason, Doctors Without Borders and NOMOS Glashütte have embarked on a new and especially large project: In 2021 there are 2,021 watches in support of emergency aid.
Now for the first time, NOMOS watches for Doctors Without Borders are available for sale worldwide. For the first time, this version of Tangente is paired with a dark gray textile strap from NOMOS Glashütte.
And another first: The small inscription beneath six o’clock on Tangente 38 that reads “50 ans de Médecins Sans Frontières”. The organization was founded in Paris, 1971, as Médecins Sans Frontières. It has since grown into a global network that leads and funds emergency aid projects around the world.
Each Tangente 38 – 50 ans Médecins Sans Frontières is powered by NOMOS in-house caliber Alpha with manual winding—the most-produced caliber from NOMOS Glashütte, adjusted according to chronometer standards for this model. The dial of this watch is white silver-plated, the hands are oxidized black. The stainless steel case back features a limited-edition engraving.
The cooperation between Doctors Without Borders and NOMOS Glashütte is entering its 10th year. To date, over 10,000 watches have been built in support of emergency aid— various models, all recognizable by the red 12. The new Tangente 38 – 50 ans Médecins Sans Frontières is available at retailers from the end of April.
The EUR price matches that of the original Tangente 38 model: 1,620 Euros. 100 Euros from the sale of each watch— half donated by NOMOS Glashütte, half by the retailer—goes, in full, directly towards providing emergency aid.
