For skilled watchmakers at Nomos Glashutte, manufacturing the Nomos Orion watch was certainly a lot more complex than its beautifully simple dial would suggest. These sophisticated timepieces have been constructed from hand developed and hand assembled components which come together to create something truly spectacular on the wrist. The essentials have been elevated to a fine art – those signature characteristics that are most recognised for bringing a Nomos watch to life. The designs are refined and retained – perfect for gracing the most elegant of wrists. Whether fitted with a manual winding component or a self winding movement – these striking instruments are perfect for keeping accurate time every hour of the day – every day of the week. As an official stockist of Nomos Orion watches, we invite you to take a browse through some of the company’s most popular designs within this collection. The range spans from designs with blue tempered central hands, to watches with deep luxurious anthracite dials. The choice is yours.
With a Nomos Orion watch, time is reduced to the essentials. The flowing lines of the case and the smooth crisp finish of the sapphire crystal glass come together to create something incredibly eye catching. Ageless in aesthetics – the Oris Nomos watch features finely drawn hour markers around the periphery of the dial and needle fine central hands which communicate Nomos Glashutte’s dedication to detail and meticulous craftsmanship. Beauty is also found in the smooth stainless steel lugs of these instruments, which fold over the edge of the bezel, leading to smooth authentic black leather or grey velour straps depending on the design in question. The in-house developed calibres which lie inside robust stainless steel housing, are protected down to 30 meters of water depth, and the dials themselves are protected underneath a domed sheet of sapphire crystal glass from factors such as scratching, denting, dust and glare from the sun or artificial lighting.
From our collection of Nomos Orion watches here at Berry’s, the manually wound creations are that of the 38 Datum variation and also the Orion 33. The Nomos Orion Neomatik 36 Champagne watch, on the other hand, is fitted with an automatic movement – the Caliber DUW 3001. It features an index hour track on a beautiful champagne dial with soft orange detailing. The minutes are denoted in sections of five, whilst a small second subscale adds technical appeal to the design. The independently manufactured DUW 3001 movement can be observed from the back of the case which has been fitted with an exhibition glass.
The Nomos Orion 33 watches are perfect for the ladies. Showcased on luxurious grey velour straps, the dials come in variations of champagne or white d\galvanized dials with blue or orange accents. These award-winning designs are beautifully pleasing to the eye, not to mention flattering when combined with a sleek black evening dress or such like. The Nomos Orion 35 watch with a white dial however, is automatic. It features a clean modern dial finished with silver coloured accents. The timepiece is slightly broader making it a great companion for gentlemen with slender wrists. A comfortable black leather strap promises to sit snug against the wrist, perfect for the dedicated businessman or the retired gentleman.
