Up Close: Nomos Orion Hand-Wind

Post by koimaster » October 9th 2020, 9:44am

Deciding on an entry-level watch is exciting, but also confusing, especially for a first-time buyer. It’s often a problem of too many choices.

Competition is strong in the segment, with the usual suspects like Seiko and Nomos, but also newly-established “micro brands” all competing in the same space. One of the standouts in terms of value, however, is the Nomos Orion, which combines aesthetics and functionality in a clean, approachable package.
Old school of design

The simplicity of its design means the Orion has aged surprisingly well.

It doesn’t look it, but the Orion is almost 30 years old – Nomos introduced the model in 1992, two years after the brand was established. The Orion still looks modern today – evidence of its durable design.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
