If you’re looking for a watch brand that will give you the most bang for your buck, it’s hard to go wrong with Nomos Glashutte. After over 150 years in the watchmaking business, to say that they know a thing or two about horology would be perhaps the greatest understatement of the century. Nomos Glashutte is one of the few high end watches that you can afford for a much lower price.
Don’t let the price tag fool you though; just take a look at their Club and Club Dunkel watches. These watches truly embody the ideals of the German company, proving that less can mean a whole lot more in some circles.
The reason that the Club and Dunkel watches stand out so much isn’t just because of their superior quality and mechanics; it’s the approach that the brand takes to the individual who will be wearing these watches. The Club series is designed for the up and coming individual; for new blood in the old world. Thus, the watch is designed to be practical, durable, and still make a great impression.
They’re certainly not the flashiest watches on the market, but they’re one of the best made. The in-house alpha movement is a simple, but incredibly accurate mechanism which keeps the watch running right on time and boasts a power reserve of 43 hours.
The execution of the watch really sends the timepiece to the next level. There’s a whole host of watches that claim their watchbands are the most comfortable, but the simple beauty of the leather strap and exquisite stitching sets the watch above some of its less detail-oriented competitors. It’s the small details that really set the watch apart.
Nomos Glashutte does a fantastic job of retaining movements in-house, meaning that each watch is painstakingly put together under the watchful eyes of the brand itself.
Unlike many modern luxury watches, which seem to focus on flash and the latest fad, the Nomos Club is meant to last through its wearer’s trials and tribulations. The watch is designed with the young professional in mind—the one luxury on the hard path of climbing up the totem pole. It is this thoughtfulness in addition to the extent of the detail-oriented attention that has made a name for Nomos Glashutte over the past century.
With watches as outstanding as the Club, it’s easy to believe that Nomos will be a big name in the luxury watch market for another 150 years to come.
