Time to Give Back: NOMOS Glashütte for Doctors Without Borders

South Sudan, Syria, Nepal: In many places worldwide, assistance is urgently needed. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is committed to bringing emergency medical aid to those who need it — be it in high-profile crisis zones or in places rarely featured by the media.

NOMOS Glashütte is supporting the Nobel Peace Prize-winning organization with eight special watch models for the U.S.A., U.K., and Germany, limited to 1,000 pieces each. Every single one raises 100 U.S. dollars, British pounds, or euros, respectively, with the aim of donating a total of over $1 million to Doctors Without Borders.

The design classic Tangente is a watch with many right angles — and as a limited edition for Doctors Without Borders, one that ensures better times for many.


NOMOS crafts these fine mechanical timepieces in the world-famous German watchmaking town of Glashütte. German engineering skill, outstanding product design (in the traditions of Bauhaus and the Deutscher Werkbund), and the town’s rich heritage of watchmaking: thanks to these aspects, timepieces from NOMOS Glashütte are of the highest quality.

At the heart of these limited edition watches is the hand-wound Alpha caliber, as revealed by the sapphire crystal caseback here.

What also makes these elegant hand-wound watches unique is the red “12” on their silver-plated dials, which is a subtle allusion to the medical aid organization, the small “Doctors Without Borders” inscription below the 6 o’clock position, and the special engraving on their backs. Each of these timepieces is individually numbered, and the fine in-house caliber is displayed through the sapphire crystal caseback.
