NOMOS Glashütte Presents Tetra Neomatik 175 Years Watchmaking Glashütte

The new limited series from NOMOS Glashütte: Tetra neomatik – 175 Years Watchmaking Glashütte in off white, red, blue and black. The same traditional precision craftsmanship, but in new colours and a new look. Manufactured using a technique whose effect is very similar to that of enamel, the dials beneath the antireflective sapphire crystal glass are remarkably beautiful and high-contrast.

Colour versions of the successful, square classic Tetra have long been available from NOMOS Glashütte. Until now, these were hand-wound watches in rather subtle shades. But now Tetra is stepping up its game: with Tetra neomatik – 175 Years Watchmaking Glashütte, the manufactory is striking new tones. The four models available this spring are not just flat, elegant automatic watches; they are also extravagant and a little idiosyncratic. These days, some would call them edgy.

Red, blue, black, and off-white are the new, very crisp colours of these watches. They are coated using a technique whose effect is comparable to that of enamel: incoming light is not absorbed by the opaque surfaces but instead reflected, creating depth. In terms of their shape and size, the new models are neither feminine nor masculine but — like other timepiece success stories — for everyone.

But that is not to say they are actually for everyone. The watches are bolder than sneakers with a jacket. Be it a business coach or an NFT artist, a political newcomer or a YouTube star, a molecular researcher or an interior designer, with these watches, NOMOS Glashütte had in mind self-assured, modern people who do not follow the mainstream. After all, even as a company, NOMOS Glashütte has always gone its own way.

The new NOMOS edition is limited to just 175 units each worldwide, as evidenced by the engraving on the back. Something NOMOS is celebrating with a gift: it comes with the beautiful NOMOS deployant clasp on a remborde strap (made of Horween Genuine Shell Cordovan, oiled by hand, struck with glass balls for shine). Likewise, this Tetra series was regulated according to chronometer values. As such, these new watches are at least as desirable as the hand-wound Tetra models. But nevertheless: fundamentally different and a clear step up.

NOMOS Glashütte Tetra Neomatik – 175 Years Watchmaking Glashütte is limited to just 175 units each worldwide and retails for SGD 5,320.
