Super slender, large, and automatically competent – the new classic series of men’s watches from the Glashütte watchmaking company has been tailored specifically for office life.
Whether in the UN assembly, an engineering office in Berlin, or a studio somewhere in Brussels, the new ‘At Work’ series from the German watchmaking company NOMOS Glashütte is a promotion for the wrist. Based on the well-known models Tangente, Metro, Orion and Tetra, this new collection comprises 14 mechanical watches – large, striking, and ultra-thin.
And, with the chance to be more delicate in design, they are perfect for those who spend most of their days in the office, laboratory, or company headquarters – rather than flying fighter jets, blasting into space, or putting themselves through the paces of extreme sports.
All of the ‘At Work’ models not only offer the perfect proportions, but they also speak to the wearer’s taste – in watches as well as life.
With a diameter of 39 millimeters and an elegantly thin case, these timepieces sit smartly under the cuff and still look magnificent in more casual, tie-free office spaces or during after work occasions. Our favourites, and undeniably the eye-catchers of the series, are the models in the new colour silvercut. This silver-gray dial colour is created through a nine-step process: the gold and rhodium-plated blank is varnished and wet- blasted repeatedly, removing a thousandth of a millimetre every time. This way, NOMOS tells us, it’s not only the watch that is precision trimmed until it is slender, but the dial as well.
In addition to the silvercut models, there are versions in the classic NOMOS dial colors: white, silver-plated, and midnight blue. A particularly notable upgrade is the new golden Metro model: Its award-winning design hasn’t changed, but it is now in a case of 18 karat rose gold – for those of you looking to make an impression around the office.
And, of course, all models of the NOMOS ‘At Work’ series have one thing in common: their high-end auto- matic caliber, DUW 3001 – the tenth in-house built movement from the watchmaking company. Ultra-thin and highly precise, it guarantees performance without getting too big for its boots.
Modest and conservatively-designed, we’d ear-mark these timepieces as an early investment. Manual timepieces from NOMOS Glashütte already count among the classics in the world of fine watches; with DUW 3001 and a design aesthetic inspired by Bauhaus and the Deutscher Werkbund, the automatics from NOMOS are on the way to becoming classics, too.
