Nomos Tangente 33 Ladies’ Watch, Steel Back
For ladies. The small Tangente
The hand-wound movement Nomos α, which has proven itself for many years, opened up the possibility of also building a somewhat smaller version of the famous Nomos Tangente - the Tangente 33. With it, the Glashütte manufactory met the frequently requested demand for a ladies' wristwatch with the proportions of the Tangente. The diameter of 33 millimeters is just about what the caliber allows, so the case was literally tailored to fit it. The dial of the Tangente 33 is also galvanized and white silvered, and the hands are temperature blued. The strap is made of fine suede.
Clarity and precision. Nomos Glashütte
Nomos Glashütte, one of the few owner-managed watch manufactories in the world, has been building fine mechanical timepieces in Glashütte, Saxony, since 1990. Product designers from the Berlin Nomos branch take care of the masterful designs, which are inspired by the ideas of the Deutscher Werkbund, the forerunner of the Bauhaus movement. To this day, Nomos Glashütte implements the Werkbund's approach in an exemplary manner: to decouple the service life of products from changing fashions and contemporary tastes through good design. Several models have long been considered classics - and have won numerous awards for their design and quality.
In technical terms, too, Nomos Glashütte stands out from the crowd of watch manufacturers. The combination of the best craftsmanship and German engineering, but also with the help of research and high technology, produces manufacture calibers and watches of the very highest quality. This is because the manufactory develops and produces exclusively its own calibers; every watch is made on site in Glashütte: the vertical range of manufacture of Nomos movements is up to 95 percent.
A quantum leap on the way to this independence was the Nomos-Swing system, the escapement assembly consisting of balance and balance spring, escape wheel and pallet anchor, which is decisive for the rate accuracy. To manufacture such a perfect watch heart oneself is considered a great art. Almost all brands therefore source their systems from a single specialist manufacturer in Switzerland. Nomos Glashütte has spent seven years developing the Nomos swing system to the point where it is ready for series production - with the support of the Technical University of Dresden and the Fraunhofer Institute. It is thus one of the few companies to carry out such manufacturing and calibration work, which takes place at the microgram level, in-house.
