The Tangente. A Modern Classic from Saxony

Nomos Tangente Gentlemen’s Watch

The Tangente is a Nomos design that caused a sensation as soon as the watch appeared 20 years ago – especially its looks: for example the slim case and the minimalistic watch face, both of which are inspired by Glashütte designs from the 1920s’. We offer this watch in a steel-backed version with a black Cordovan leather strap; without date indicator. Each watch has its own engraved serial number and the Greek ‘alpha’ letter specifying that it is manually wound and without the date indicator.

Protective Clothing. Sheepskin Jacket

Sheepskin Jacket

Sheepskin jackets became popular in the early days of ‘motoring’ – a period when the car was more like an open coach, and when the first aeroplane pilots flew in open cockpits. One needed protective clothing against the elements, and this was the ways sheepskin jackets found their way behind steering-wheel or joystick. The material, with its soft fleece and a hair length of remarkable 15 mm, keeps you really warm in sub-zero temperatures and icy winds. The tough outside skin defies rain, snow, and hail.

Rarely found. Mohair blanket

Mohair Blanket

As the first business in Europe to do so, Brun de Vian-Tiran produced, in 1962, a blanket from pure Mohair. This was a milestone in the history of the company, because the smooth hair of the Angora goat is extremely difficult to process. Mohair is extraordinarily long and lightly curled, elastic, silkily shining, durable, long lasting, and agreeable to the skin. It has a climatizing effect – warming when cold and cooling during higher temperatures. For this blanket only the most carefully selected Mohair from South Africa, Texas, and Turkey is processed.

For Your Sunday Roast. Invicta Oval Casserole

Invicta Oval Casserole

Invicta pots from the French cast iron manufacturer are protected with enamel. The casseroles (‘mijoteuses’) are translucently enameled, and they are so attractive that they make perfect oven-to-tableware. Our casseroles come with condensation lids – for quality and flavor of the food. Steam rising in the dishes is cooled with cold water or a few ice cubes in the lid. The steam condenses and consequently drips back into the pot; the meat remains moister and vegetables tender.

Comfortable Overcoat. Ladies’ Lambskin Jacket

Ladies' Lambskin Jacket

Merino sheepskin combines strength with softness and a good feel. The wool is very fine, dense and soft – and, needless to say, exceptionally warm. Following the tanning process, the wool is cut down to a length of 10 mm, since the under coat has a particularly dense and soft consistency – indispensable for a good sheepskin coat. To keep stitching to a minimum, we've used good-sized leather pieces. The old-established Westphalian firm that make this coat for us have given it a really excellent finish that fully justifies its price tag.

EtaProof® Gentlemen’s Parka

At Your Service. Big Desk Organizer

Big Desk Organizer

Many of the components of our Big Desk Organizer are necessarily humble and unspectacular – a card index box, a visiting card box, a letter tray for example. The heart of our Organizer is however quite impressive; 27 x 55.5 cm in size it is a container put together on the unit construction principle and holds about anything the busy desk worker needs. The exact needs may of course vary from office to office – but our well-thought-out organizer is up to all the demands that may be made of it with its great variety of boxes and compartments.

Pure New Wool. Black Sheep Aran Pullover

Black Sheep Aran Pullover

This crew neck sweater’s “scent” has no words to describe it. It comes from the lanolin: the ‘wool-wax’ that was used in ancient times for medicinal purposes – the natural oil of the wool, which is left unbleached and non-dyed for this pullover. The Raglan sleeves serve a double function: they make the pullover more pleasant to wear, and at the same time serve to enhance the traditional Aran Isle pattern that runs down the sleeve from neck to cuff. The seams are in 1/1 rib-knit and offer a perfect tailored fit..

French Tradition. Ceramic Latte Bowl

Ceramic Latte Bowl

An earthenware manufacturer from Lothringen going back 250 years produces this coffee bowl. It’s a testimony to their tenacity that they have been able to hold on, with not more than a dozen employees left from 120. The porcelain painters mix the glaze and spray it on the bowls by hand, relying entirely on their sense of proportion. They lay on templates loosely in order to generate a discrete indistinctness in the application of the glaze.

Organizing your Notes. ATOMA

Blank Atoma A5 Notebook

The 60 years old Belgian ATOMA notebook system consists entirely of runaway rings and flighty pages, whereby the rings prevent the pages from flying off and the pages prevent the rings from running away – at any rate, thanks to a patented special perforation the pages can always be easily separated from each other. So you can add, rearrange or combine the various forms from your own notebooks any time you want to, with forms, calendar or addresses you can generate with your PC on the blank forms and then perforate them with the ATOMA hole puncher.

Sweeps Clean. Manufactum Goat Hair Dusting Broom

Manufactum goatshair dusting broom

This is a household broom with the old-fashioned ‘Zeppelin’ shape, a head so slim that it can brush out the tightest of corners. The fine, dense goatshair bristle is able to gather an enormous amount of dust, making it especially suitable for dry-brushing wooden, tiled or linoleum floors – where it can do a better job than a vacuum-cleaner. With brass-plated thread to fit our screw-on handles.

Motor Sports Watch. Sinn's Tachymeter

Sinn Chronograph Tachymeter

Wrist watches with tachymeter scales have been around for some time. They were the classic equipment for the early rally motorists – known in those days as ‘gentlemen drivers’ – who used them to determine their average driving speed. Sinn have designed this chronograph specially for us, with a three-way tachymeter scale built directly on to the dial in spiral form.

From Germany since 1911. Bolich Lights

Bolich Small Copper Outdoor Lamp

The Bolich outdoor lamps of black-coated aluminium are among the most popular of our range, and we’ve been asked again and again if we can’t do them in copper. So we took the request on board and asked Bolich to make this one for us. In shape they resemble their aluminium brethren, but are made of strong copper plate instead – and the metal hasn’t been coated, so the copper will over time build up a characteristically delightful patina. They are – needless to say – made to be used out of doors.

Natural Look and Feel. Gentlemen's Leather Jacket

Gentlemen’s leather jacket

For this leather jacket we use exclusively European cow-hide from ‘happy cows’ – that is, animals that led normal lives and were not specially reared to produce leather. The leather-making process consists, firstly, of mineral tanning, then aniline drum dyeing, followed by natural greasing. This careful process means that the leather is deep dyed, and not e.g. brush-dyed or treated with any other surface process that conceals the natural look and feel of the material.
