BASELWORLD 2018:

Life in the Fast Lane: Nomos Glashütte Introduces the Autobahn Collection


Nomos Glashütte is known for its minimalist design palate, accessible in-house movements, and collaborations with designers from outside the watch world. At Baselworld 2018, the German brand has introduced its latest watch collection which spawned from a relationship with the German designer Werner Aisslinger. It’s also inspired by something distinctly Teutonic: the Autobahn.

Named after the massive highway system that is known for its lack of a speed limit, the new collection separates itself from any previous Nomos line thanks to the curved rehaut in the center of the of the watch. Inspired by race tracks, and the high-speed motor vehicles that traverse them, the watch maintains the spartan aesthetic Nomos fans appreciate while adding a bit of fast-moving zest. The date window spreads itself out from 5 to 7 o’clock, making it three numerals wide and the small seconds subdial at 6 o’clock matches the dial symmetry flawlessly.

The watch itself is 41 mm and maintains a water resistance of 100 m. Most Nomos models pride themselves on the ability to be fluid between genders — my girlfriend’s love of the Club Campus attests to this fact. However, the specific sizing choice and overall masculine tone of these new timepieces help tailor them towards the male side of the spectrum.

The new Autobahn comes in three different color versions: white silver-plated, sports gray, and midnight blue. It’s priced at $4,800 and will be available starting tomorrow.

      Hi Karel,

      If they don’t have a location in Chile you should reach out to them directly or let me know if you’d like me to pass your information on to someone there who may be able to help you.
