The new Nomos Glashutte watch is powered by the brand’s proprietary self-winding caliber movement with world time indicator. It is placed inside a 40mm quinquepartite case, crafted from stainless steel.
On its front side, the model features a domed sapphire crystal. The same glass is used for its back side. The case construction is water-resistant down to 3 atm.
The new Nomos Glashutte Tangomat GMT Plus watch is complimented by a galvanized, white silver-plated dial. Equipped with contrasting Arabic numerals and hour-markers, it ensures central hours and minutes. The small seconds, meanwhile, tick away in the counter at 6 o’clock. Taking care of all the temporal indications are steel, tempered blue hands.
At 9 o’clock, the display also features a time conversion disc, which shows the amount of hours, separating the user from his home time. It is counterbalanced by a 24-hour indicator at 3 o’clock.
To set the new time zone, the watch wearer has to press the button at two o’clock. The hour hand moves and so does the scale in the window at 9 o’clock. The user should continue pressing the button until the display “+/- 0” appears in the window. This indication means the person is at home, for example in Berlin.
The next step is to use an adjusting pin for the recessed button at 8 o’clock. When pressing there and afterwards retracting the pin entirely, the hour hand is moved one position further. Now position by position, the watch should be synchronized: the hour hand should be set to the hour indicated by the little time disc on the right.
Then, the user should pull out the crown and set conventionally his home time: the hands and the little time disc will move together.
Now, the watch owner can freely move through the time zones, using the button at 2 o’clock. Pressed 23 times, it pushes the hour hand to a “-1” position - Greenwich Mean Time in this case. But the time in his home city still remains the same on the small time disc. Therefore, the movement needs to be wound. It is achieved by turning the crown three or four times. Afterwards the watch gets power with every movement of the wearer’s arm.
The new Nomos Glashutte watch is accompanied by a Horween Shell Cordovan strap.
