Nomos Glashütte Watch Metro Wins Good Design Award 2014

The Nomos Glashütte Metro has won the Good Design Award 2014, one of the world's most renowned design prizes.

The Good Design Award was founded in 1950 by a group of designers including Charles and Ray Eames. Presented by the Chicago Athenaeum each year, the prize is internationally recognised as denoting innovative design and objectively high-quality products which combine form, function and aesthetics. The Metro's award win is described by Nomos CEO Uwe Ahrendt as "the perfect end to a great year" for Nomos Glashütte watches.

The Nomos Glashütte Metro is "designed for metropolitan types with an eye for aesthetics". This is the fourth Good Design Award for Nomos Glashütte watches, with previous prizes given to the Ahoi (2013), Tangente Datum (2012) and Zürich (2011).

The Metro was chosen from thousands of submitted entries to join the list of best design achievements worldwide. This watch also received a German Design Award in 2014, in recognition of its "youthful and cosmopolitan, elegant and straightforward" design. The elegant watch, created by Berlin-based designer Mark Braun, features the Nomos 'swing system', the exciting new in-house escapement.
