Club Sport Neomatik 42 Date

Post by koimaster » June 21st 2022, 11:11pm

The Club Sport Neomatik 42 Date is one of the relatively few watches produced by German Nomos that I would consider a sports watch. The Glashutte-based watchmaker that produces its own movements is known for its classic Bauhaus-style designs, which have always been more dressy or urban in their poise. In 2013, when Nomos introduced the Ahoi (aBlogtoWatch review here), the brand began to embark on sportier watches that still focused on its core aesthetic theme. The Nomos Club Sport Neomatik 42 Date Blue (first introduced on aBlogtoWatch here with additional background information) has a case that is water-resistant to 300 meters. (Nomos likes to say “1,000 feet,” perhaps because that’s a higher number.) It effectively blends sporty and dressy style elements for a package that I think will resonate well with many consumers.

Based on the Nomos Club family of products, the Club Sport Neomatik 42 Date is a larger version than most from this collection but maintains the soft, rounded bezel and overall case curves, which are quite different from the more angular Ahoi case. In all polished steel, the case is 42mm-wide, 10.2mm-thick, and has a 52.3mm (a bit long) lug-to-lug distance. Over the dial is a domed and AR-coated sapphire crystal, and overall, the case is rather sensible given the impressive water-resistance rating. One of my favorite features of the case is the red markings on the crown stem that act as a warning about the potential of water intrusion if the wearer forgets to screw back in the crown.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
