The manufactory by NOMOS
Published on January 24, 2014
The watches made in Glashütte are world famous. The village’s watchmaking companies are amongst the world leaders in fine watchmaking. The designers, watchmakers, and toolmakers here can do things their colleagues elsewhere would struggle to do—because watches have been made in Glashütte for many generations—since 1845, in fact. Watches with unique features that can only be found here. Watches of the highest quality.
In the watch industry, producers are designated as ‘manufactories’ if they design their own movements and produce a significant part of the caliber themselves. NOMOS reaches a percentage of 75-95, depending on the model. It is one of only a few watchmakers with the designation of manufactory.
Typical features of NOMOS watches: The three-quarter plate, blued screws and, last but not least, the sunburst perlages.
Making of Lambda
Gold chatons polished in elder tree pith, balance cocks engraved by hand, swan neck fine adjustment, tin polishing and fine sunbeam polishing: only one or two of these very special watches—produced with a great deal of love—are crafted in a week. Take a look over our watchmakers’ shoulders.
