Nomos Orion 1989 Celebrates 25 Years of Freedom

nomos orion 1989November, 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.
