Nomos Orion 1989 Celebrates 25 Years of Freedom Written byWatchTimeSeptember 30, 2014 November, 2014 will mark the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Nomos celebrates this historic event with a special-edition watch, the Nomos Orion 1989, which features a manufacture movement with an interesting special feature. The stainless steel case is available in two sizes: 38 mm x 8.8 mm, and 33 mm x 8.5 mm. The case features a sapphire crystal and display back, through which you can view the in-house Alpha caliber with a Glashütte three-quarter plate, tempered blued screws, and a Glashütte stopwork – a mechanism that stops the winding of the mainspring at a predetermined point. This improves isochronism by using only the center, or most linear, portion of the spring’s power band. This is a relatively rare and desirable addition to a high-precision watch. The movements runs at 21,600 vph in 17 jewels with a power reserve of 43 hours. The Nomos Orion 1989 marks 25 years since the fall of the Berlin wall. The galvanized dial is November gray with gold applied indices. The hands are diamond-polished gold-plated steel. The strap is dark gray suede leather with a steel buckle. The Nomos Orion 1989 will arrive in stores in November, 2014. The 33-mm model will retail for $2,240, and the 38-mm model for $2,620. Complete specifications appear below.
