Nomos

Nomos is a Glashuette-based German watch brand. Nomos was founded in 1990. Since the mid 1990s Nomos designs and produces in-house movements. In 2014 Nomos introduced the Swing system, a revolutionary system that allows Nomos to manufacture watches entirely in Glashuette without having to rely on Swiss watch parts. The system of the balance, balance spring, escape wheel and pallet is the heart of every mechanical watch - Nomos now controls this chain in-house from end to end. Among the more popular Nomos watches are the Nomos Tangente, Nomos Orion, Nomos Ahoi, Nomos Ludwig, Nomos Tetra, Nomos Cub, Nomos Tangomat, Nomos Zurich, Nomos Lux, Nomos Lambda, Nomos Metro. Nomos watches for sale are available at certified retailers, where official Nomos watches price details can be found as well. The Nomos watches price list is also available on the Nomos website. This is WatchTime's Nomos section with Nomos watch news, blog posts, updates and other posts about Nomos watches as well as Nomos watch infos. Includes Nomos Tangente, Nomos Ahoi, Nomos Tetra, Nomos chronograph, Nomos Bauhaus and other Nomos watch price infos. Nomos watches are available globally and WatchTime covers a wide range of Nomos watches.
