About the Nomos Glashutte Tetra Collection

Introduction

Inside the world of round watches, the edgier timekeepers have enjoyed the idea of originality since its inception. According to The Rake, “So why the enduring appeal? Partly it comes down to watch lover’s innate yen for originality”. On the contrary, the design has also received criticism for being hard to manufacture, particularly the process of waterproofing the timepieces. Swivelling to the protagonist here, the Nomos Tetra collection was first launched in 2016. Since then, the collection has been added with various series such as Neomatik, Symphony, and the Berlin set. The collection has received praise for being unique and imbued with minimalistic aesthetics which Nomos is renowned for.

Design

It is the penchant for symmetry, an endless penchant for being borderline OCD that depicts the stance of the Nomos Tetra collection. The austere clean lines coupled with the Bauhaus-inspired minimalism are inspired by the timepieces created in the early 20th century. The square dial with thin lugs expands it with a much larger silhouette. Whereas, the sleek, slender hands are pleasant to the eyes with small seconds counting every moment of your life, except in the duo series where the absence of seconds hand paves the way to classicism.

Movement

The Nomos Tetra collection is either powered by the brand’s first movement, the hand-wound Alpha or the ultra-thin automatic, the DUW 3001. Alpha movement is the classic movement that powers 33 series inside the Nomos arena. With a power reserve of up to 43 hours, the hand-wound movement is available in different sizes precisely complementing almost every timepiece Nomos has to offer. Whereas, the DUW 3001 is efficiently thin and robust whilst being highly precise. The DUW 3001 also boasts of having an efficiency of 94.2%. The meaning of this percentage is that the friction loss that leads to inaccuracy is down to 5.8%. For comparison, a normal movement’s friction loss is usually up to 20%. Apart from the dexterity of the movements, Nomos has also fitted these two calibres with its signature escapement called the Nomos swing system.

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.
