Roland Schwertner, an IT expert from Düsseldorf, founded Nomos Glashütte in 1990 after the Berlin Wall fell. Schwertner used the existing company name Nomos-Uhr-Gesellschaft as the basis of the watch manufactory. This company distributed between 1906 and 1910 pocket watches of the Schweitzer watch manufactory Glashütte. Roland Schwertner decided to give the Nomos Glashütte brand a new shine and has succeeded in doing so. In the course of time Nomos Glashütte developed more and more watch calibres on its own. In addition to traditional watchmaking, the luxury watch manufacturer also uses computer-aided tools and innovative laser technology. The Swing system has been a special feature of Nomos Glashütte since 2014. The range of products (balance wheel, escape wheel and anchor unit) is manufactured directly in the company.
