The NOMOS DUW 6101 Caliber

Post by koimaster » March 26th 2020, 3:53pm

Most articles discussing NOMOS Glashütte begin with a mention of the German company's design language, which leans on traditional Bauhaus sensibilities. As a defining characteristic, it isn't a bad one to have, as the brand's immaculate take on the 20th century design school has allowed NOMOS to achieve a level of aesthetic consistency across its various collections that is both rare in the modern watch industry and recognizable from across a room.

But NOMOS is also an underrated technical powerhouse, and its most recent movement, the DUW 6101 caliber, released at Baselworld 2018, has a lot more going on than most people realize. We've seen two years of high-quality releases from NOMOS using this quietly innovative caliber, and we're going to take a look at its development, how it works, and why you should care in this Shop Spotlight.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
