Nomos Glashütte, the famous German watchmaker, introduced a collection of new models to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus Design School.
Staatliches Bauhaus, commonly known as Bauhaus and literally meaning “building house”, is originally a German art school established in 1919 for fine arts, craftsmanship, and architecture. Despite the school closing in 1933, the term Bauhaus remains highly influential in contemporary design with its famous motto “less is more”. In the world of watchmaking, Bauhaus design is successfully represented by the German brand Nomos Glashütte and its timepieces known with their symmetrical outline, reduced dials and iconic typography.
The new collection offers nine different models that are all variants of Tangente model which is known as the first watch manufactured by Nomos Glashütte in 1992. The models will be available in the three primary colors as well as in three different case sizes as 33, 35 and 38mm in diameter. Each version will be limited to 100 pieces. The models are powered by the manufacture movement Caliber Alpha. The movement is hand-wound and capable of offering 43-hour power reserve when fully wound.
The new timepieces are water resistant to 30 meters / 3 bars and are offered on Horween Genuine Shell Cordovan black leather straps with 19 mm lug width.
