NOMOS Glashütte, one of the few owner-operated watchmaking companies in the world, creates the finest mechanical timepieces in the small Saxon town of Glashütte. NOMOS watchmakers count among the very best in their field—what they have mastered is still a challenge for their colleagues elsewhere.
That is because watches have been crafted in Glashütte for many generations—for 175 years, to be precise. NOMOS Glashütte is part of this long tradition of German fine watchmaking. In accordance with the protected designation of origin for Glashütte, the watchmaking company produces its in-house movements on-site with a production depth of up to 95 percent.
NOMOS Glashütte creates watches in accordance with the principles of the Deutscher Werkbund, the precursor to the Bauhaus movement: The combination of outstanding craftsmanship with the renowned prowess of German engineering on the one hand, and of advanced research with state-of-the-art technology on the other, is the foundation for the superior quality of its timepieces. The characteristics shared by all NOMOS watches include top-quality materials, refined dials, elegant and usually slender hands, narrow bezels, and an exceptionally clear form—many models have long been considered classics. Furthermore, they have received more than 160 prizes for watchmaking craft, design, and quality.
