Nomos Glashütte Ahoi Watch Review


Nomos Glashütte has launched its new Ahoi timepiece.

The Ahoi has a dial reminiscent of the classic Nomos Glashütte Tangomat, but is described by the brand as "more upbeat, sportier and more modern".

The watch has a 40 mm stainless steel case, with an aligned bezel, domed glass and flank guards. A screwed-down sapphire crystal back and crown ensures water resistance to 200 metres, with its water resistance tested according to NOMOS standards not far off the DIN 8306 standard for diver's watches.

The Nomos Glashütte Ahoi is available with or without a large date indication at 6 o'clock, and features a small red second hand. The hour and minute hands have a SuperLumiNova inlay for improved visibility, and the watch comes with a waterproof textile strap.

The Ahoi (without date indication) is powered by the automatic ε (Epsilon) calibre movement, while the Ahoi Datum is equipped with the ζ (Zeta) calibre - both built in-house by Nomos.

Available from June 2013 with prices starting at £2,600.
