The Nomos Ahoi watch is most at home underwater. Equipped with the in-house built caliber DUW 5001, the independent heartbeat ticks away with outstanding winding accuracy and combined with the Maison’s swing system – a 43 hour power reserve is more than adequate for all water-related adventures. As an official stockist of Nomos Ahoi watches here at Berry’s – these sophisticated timepieces surpass all expectations of a standard diver’s watch. Yet their aesthetical beauty is on another level and is instantly recognisable due to its unique profile and a selection of rare design features. The Nomos Ahoi watch still retains an elegantly slim depth despite a 200 meter water resistance. The in-house developed movement lies at the heart of this solid stainless steel structure, performing effortlessly, whilst a legible dial will deliver to the diver, vital information in an instance.
Nomos Ahoi watches are constructed from hand-assembled and hand-produced components. These exquisite masterpieces come together under one roof in Germany by expert craftsmen. These timepieces, named after the old sailor’s greeting “ahoi”, cement the watch’s close relationship with the water, along with Nomos Glashutte’s ability to direct the focus of their manufacturing talents straight to the heart of their designs. Introduced in 2013, Nomos Ahoi watches take on a whole new concept for a sports watch. These instruments are the best option for swimming from the entire Nomos Glashutte universe, making them perfect companions for sailing, backpacking, trips to the beach and swimming as well as water sports. The discreet Nomos style is of course, evident within these designs, seen as the company never lose sight of signature features like their elegant hour track, their slim bezels and their subtle splashes of colour here and there. A small red second hand is also seen above the 6 o’clock location in Nomos Ahoi watches, which can be stopped in order to set the watch to a particular time.
Nomos Ahoi watches are also integrated with an eye catching crown guard and are executed on a textile strap which provides better water resistance than a normal leather strap, as well as enhancing a further sporty feel to the watch. The Nomos Glashutte Ahoi Atlantik Blue 40mm watch is a supreme diver’s luxury wristwatch. It features a deep blue dial with rose gold central hands and hour markers, coated with a luminous treatment for ultimate legibility. The textile strap features a winged clasp for easy dressing and removing on and off the wrist. For something a little more classic-looking, the Nomos Ahoi Datum 40.3mm watch features a beautifully aligned bezel which frames a galvanized, white silver-plated dial and rhodium plated central hands. The steel casing is secured together using 6 individual screws. A sapphire crystal glass back with anti reflective properties, allows the diver a unique insight into the in-house developed calibre which ticks away seamlessly inside its 200 meter water resistant housing. The large date aperture is also a handy feature for those looking for a Nomos watch with a little added functionality.
