The latest additions to Nomos Glashütte‘s fan-favorite Aqua series have arrived just in time to be worn through the peak of summer. Two new watches, based off of the Ahoi and Club designs within the brand’s catalog, seamlessly fit into the rest of the colorful Aqua collection with a “siren white” dial, blue hands, and alternating red numerals and indices.
The 16 other watches already in the Aqua collection vary between bright blues, a reddish-orange, and a softer white that appears almost grayish. The new “siren white” option is a much bolder tone and creates a striking impression on the wrist with the complementary white/gray strap option. Both new models, the Ahoi with its flat case and crown protector, and the Club with its rounded look, have their own distinct appeal. The Club is slightly more playful and youthful with its 37 mm diameter and polished case, and the 36 mm Ahoi feels more refined with its sharp angles and short, faceted lugs. Both watches are waterproof to 200 meters.
Inside the watches is the Neomatik DUW 3001 (the initials stand for Deutsche Uhrenwerke), which is visible through an exhibition caseback in both models. It’s one of the thinnest self-winding movements on the market today, measuring only 3.2 mm in height. Among its attributes are the Nomos swing system with a tempered blue balance spring; a bi-directional 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 43 hours.
The prices fall within the typical range for both the Ahoi ($4,120) and Club ($3,160) models. Both new additions to the Aqua series will be available for purchase from select retailers starting in July.
