Nomos Glashutte Tangente 38 Datum Review

The NOMOS Glashutte Tangente 38 Datum model #130 is clean and simple looking on the outside which is what gives it part of its charm. A closer look will show you the attention to detail that you would expect from a watchmaker from Glashutte, Germany.

One more thing that will catch your eye is the hand-stitched Horween genuine shell Cordovan leather. This is something you don’t see on most watches and will definitely be appreciated for its craftsmanship and comfort. The Nomos Tangente model # 130 is very lightweight and comfortable.

While it is considered a mid-sized watch, it wears like a larger watch because of the slim bezel. There’s a reason why this brand has become one of the most sought-after high-end yet attainable watch brands in the last year.

Many people might say that it’s because they have uber-modern watches with in-house mechanical movements at very competitive price. While there may be some truth to that, that’s not why people are buying this watch.

Slim Bezel

NOMOS 4101

Nomos has come a long way in only a few short years and has introduced very innovative approaches to watchmaking. To be less cryptic we’re talking about their NOMOS Swing System which removes any unnecessary energy from the system and prevents any additional wear and tear that happens when this energey is not disposed properly.

Aside from the mechanical advantages, NOMOS has some beautiful movements that have that distinct look and feel of a watch from Glashutte. The blued screws, the blue hairspring in the Swing System, the pink rubies, the application of various finishing techniques that make the watch movement really shine.

The movement in the Tangente 38 Datum found in the Tangente Datum 38 collection is no different. We’re talking about the NOMOS Glashutte DUW 4101 with manual winding, equipped a date indicator which uses a patented date mechanism. This caliber contains 23 jewels and stands only 2.3mm thick and 32.1mm in diameter.

NOMOS is technologically independence. This allows them to break away from the Swiss monopoly and count on themselves and their own expertise to keep prices low and quality high while at the same time, disruptively cutting out the manufacturing middleman. Click here to see special pricing.
