About the Nomos Glashutte Tangente Collection

History

Nomos’s longest-running collection, the Nomos Glashutte Tangente collection was first launched in 1992. Since then, the collection has not received major changes but still remains the best-selling collection inside Nomos. With numerous awards under its belt, the Nomos Glashutte collection holds the distinction of being the most popular timepiece under Nomos. A few of the awards that have graced this collection are the Chrono Award, Uhr des Jahres Award, Golden Unruh Award, and the Viennatime award.

Features

The perfect combination of a modern classic, the Nomos Glashutte Tangente is more or less like that BMW R18 gurgling through the roads of Berlin. With a confident silhouette and clean aesthetics, the Tangente collection defines the Nomos DNA at its pinnacle The classic Tangente is reminiscent of the first Tangente launched with small seconds at 6 o’clock and slender tempered blue hands. On the contrary, the Tangente Sport neomatik 42 Date is equipped with a protected crown and offers 1000ft of water resistance. Whereas, the Nomos Tangente neomatik 41 Update series is equipped with a date ring on the outer dial. Also, the Tangente collection offers timepieces for smaller wrists with a case size of 32.8mm.

Movement

Talking about the mechanical dexterity of the brand, the Nomos Glashutte Tangente collection is equipped with precise movements like the DUW 3001. The mainstay of this collection is the DUW 6101. The DUW 6101 is the first neomatik calibre with a date function. Whereas, the DUW 4401 was the first calibre to feature Nomos’s signature escapement, the Swing System. The Tangente collection is also equipped with manually winded movements, the Alpha, the DUW 4301 and the Alpha.2.

ABOUT THE MOVEMENT

Guided by the principles of simplicity and performance, German watchmaker Nomos from Glashutte continue to draw appreciation for their in-house movements and the creation of an in-house escapement called the Swing system. This journey of vertical integration began with the launch of their first in-house calibre, Alpha, in 2005. This manual-wound mechanism was, at the time, one of the best mechanical movements globally and maintains this standing even today.  

With just 2.6mm thickness, Alpha is an exceptionally slim movement, a tradition that the brand have endured through all their other in-house calibres. Its performance is close to chronometer standards, featuring the signature Glashütte three-quarter plate and stopwork. It powers traditional timekeeping functions along with a stop-seconds mechanism for approximately 43 hours once fully wound. Most of the brand's repertoire benefits from this calibre, including Club, Metro, Tangente, Ludwig, Orion, and Tetra.
