The Nomos Glashütte Metro is available either as a manual winding movement with its Alpha, DUW 4401 and DUW 4101 movements or as an automatic watch with the super-flat caliber DUW 3001, which does its work in the neomatics models.
For over 170 years, world-class timepieces have been manufactured in the small town of Glashütte, a traditional watchmaking town. The watchmakers who work here are among the best of their trade. There are only a few products in the world that are as strictly protected as watches from Glashütte. Strict rules apply to the "Glashütte" designation of origin. For example, at least 50 percent of the value added on the caliber must be generated locally in Glashütte. Nomos Glashütte achieves up to 95 percent instead of the required 50 percent.
With its patented NOMOS-Swing-System, Nomos delivers a sensation in the world of fine watches and can do what almost nobody else in the world can: produce its own range.
Nomos Glashütte was founded in 1990 by Roland Schwertner and is deeply rooted in the Saxon glassworks. In the in-house design studio in Berlin-Kreuzberg the entire creative work takes place, which is not directly related to the construction of watches. The watches are often designed in collaboration with well-known designers such as Mark Braun or Werner Aisslinger. Today, Nomos is the largest manufacturer of mechanical watches in Germany.
