Top 15 Nomos Watches

Welcome to our Top 15 NOMOS watches, an article where we introduce you to our favorite watch models from this impressive German watch brand. If you haven't heard about Nomos already, you're missing out big time. Their minimalist wristwatches are a breath of fresh air in terms of design, as well as a huge success for German watchmaking.

Discover with us your favorite Nomos Glashütte watch model!

But first, just a few words about NOMOS

NOMOS is a German watch brand that was founded in 1990 by Roland Schwertner, in Glashütte, just after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Glashütte is a little town located near Dresden, and a well-known watchmaking hub in Germany, for over 175 years now. Today, NOMOS is the largest manufacturer of mechanical watches in Germany, with over 300 employees worldwide.

Only companies that create at least 50 percent of the value of a watch’s caliber in Glashütte are allowed to label their timepieces as “Glashütte watches.” NOMOS Glashütte goes far beyond the required 50 percent—and makes up to 95 percent of each movement on site. (nomos-glashuette.com)

Nomos has invested significantly in creating premium-quality watch calibers, but the brand probably owes a great deal of its success to the unique design of their watches as well. With a quick search on Instagram, you can discover some of their amazing watch models styled, and, like many of us, you'll quickly become a fan of the brand. 

If you're interested to know all about their watchmaking process, the story behind their designs, and their journey to success, make sure to read all about Nomos Glashütte on their website. Now, let's dive into our Top 15 NOMOS Watches!
