Some watches price 36,440 and are worth every penny. Other watches, such as the Nomos Tangente, price $2,330 and make you wonder why more firms can not (or won’t) produce models offering this much price. The Tangente is the type of opinion that makes writing this column simple. A little too easy. At this price point, there’s no other modern brand that gets design, production, and quality consistently right — over a selection of versions, to boot. The Tangente is minimal with no sterile, contemporary without being brash, and most importantly , it houses an in-house movement, the Nomos metro datum replica watch Alpha standard. This is a true Value Proposition.
First, let us discuss the size: a stainless-steel case measuring 37.5mm x 6.75 mm (regardless of the”38″ in the model name) is uncommon for a new watch, particularly in a industry lately dominated by behemoth wrist candy. At this size, the Tangente does not wear frighteningly little or unexpectedly large. By and large, the combination of contemporary design and restrained proportions allow it to look just right on the wrist.
Both measurements — case diameter and case thickness — harken back to well-proportioned watches of the’40s and’50s. In fact, the Tangente bears a striking similarity to 2 Lange Bauhaus-style wristwatches published in 1940. And do not think we’re exposing a key here — Nomos tangente gangreserve replica is very upfront about the layout being motivated by preceding watches from Glashütte.
The Bauhaus school was started in 1919 in Weimar, Germany, by architect Walter Gropius. The original philosophy, to remove”distinction between decorative and monumental art,” stressed the importance of integration among various artistic disciplines in construction design. In design, this resulted in buildings whose essential forms were concurrently artistic and functional. In watches, this resulted in very pure layouts, free of superfluous ornamentation. With this minimalism came a more rigorous focus on typefaces, efficient case design, and a balance between legibility and excellent looks.
The Nomos uhren preise fake watches Tangente embodies this ethos to a tee. The simple silvery-white dial is surrounded by even numbered Arabic hour numerals, with the exception of 6 o’clock. Inset at that emptiness is a finely detailed sub-seconds dial with concentric circular graining.
However, not everything is devotion, nor is the be expected. A minor gripe is the non-standard lug-width: 19mm, which marginally restricts the options for changing straps. The opinion comes on among Nomos’s Horween Shell Cordovan straps, but We’ve swapped it here for something a bit different
It’s a really small (10.5 lignes), manually-wound motion with about 43 hours of power reserve. On the version pictured here, together with sapphire crystal case back, you may observe the movement completing with conventional Glashütte ribbing (like Côtes p Genève).
I’m reluctant to say that the Tangente is an perfect t-shirt and jeans see, because it doesn’t think that way. Well, perhaps that this t-shirt and these jeans, but I digress. What it will feel like, however, is that Nomos 601 clone watch has developed an elegant algorithm for producing great watches. Today the Tangente isn’t breaking bounds per se, but Nomos 601 tangomat replica is doing what a range of businesses (or marketing departments) just can not get right. And therefore, the Tangente gets our seal of approval.
