The Metro neomatik 41 Update from Nomos Glashütte recently received the Good Design Award in Chicago. This timepiece is already the seventh watch of the German manufacture to receive this prestigious accolade.
For more than seven decades since its inception, The Chicago Athenaeum has created awareness about innovative contemporary design and honored both products and industry leaders that have pushed the envelope for competitive products in the world marketplace. Good Design was founded in Chicago in 1950 by Edgar Kaufmann, Jr., Eero Saarinen, and Charles and Ray Eames. Christian Narkiewicz-Laine, architecture critic and chief curator explains: “Good design is one of the most powerful forces in our lives.”
For the Berlin-based independent designer Mark Braun, it is already the second award from the Chicago Athenaeum earned for a wristwatch. He already had received one for the the Metro Date Power Reserve. The renowned designer of numerous lamps and furniture as well as drinking glasses and gin bottles has been working with NOMOS Glashütte since 2012. His designs, for example for KPM Berlin, mono, Thonet and Lobmeyr, have received various awards.
The Metro neomatik 41 Update, introduced last year, features an innovative date display positioned around the dial that was premiered in the Tangente in 2018 and received a patent. As all NOMOS Glashütte watches, it is driven by a genuine movement. In this case, it is the slim self-winding DUW 6101. The Metro neomatik 41 Update has a retail price of $4,660.
