Nomos has extended its neomatik collection, launched last fall at WatchTime New York, with the introduction of the Nomos Tetra neomatik this week at Baselworld 2016. This newest version of the Tetra, Nomos’s square-cased men’s watch, is the first to be equipped with the brand’s in-house self-winding movement, Caliber DUW 3001.
Caliber DUW 3001 (the initials stand for Deutsche Uhrenwerke), which is visible through the clear caseback of the Tetra neomatik, is one of the thinnest self-winding movements on the market, measuring only 3.2 mm in height. Among its attributes are the Nomos swing system with tempered blue balance spring; a bidirectional winding rotor; a stop-seconds mechanism; and a traditional Glashütte three-quarter mainplate. The surfaces of the movement are rhodium-plated and decorated with Glashütte ribbing and perlage. Screws are blued in the traditional manner. The mainspring barrel holds a power reserve of approximately 42 hours.
The Nomos Tetra neomatik will be available at retailers in Spring 2016, priced at $3,860 for the silvered white dial and $3,980 for the deep blue dial.
