Nomos Glashütte 38 Series Watch Review


The classic Nomos Glashütte Tagente, Ludwig and Orion watches are now available with a larger 38 mm case size.

Nomos Glashütte has offered larger sized watches with a date function for a while, but the classic styles without a date had remained at their original 35 mm diameter. The brand noted this as a "gap in its range" given the trend for larger case sizes, and has now launched four new timepieces: the Tangente 38, Ludwig 38, Orion 38, and the Orion 38 Grau with a grey dial.

"The watches have grown as the way people see things have changed over the years," the brand says. "The classic watches - which once seemed fine on a man's wrist - nowadays appear a bit small to many."

The new Tangente 38 (left) and Ludwig 38 each have a stainless steel case, sapphire crystal case back, and a galvanised, white silver-plated dial. The steel hands are tempered blue.

Both the Orion 38 and Orion 38 Grau have a stainless steel case with domed sapphire crystal glass, and a domed sapphire crystal case back. The Orion 38 has a galvanised and white silver-plated dial, with gold stamped indexes and tempered blue hands, while the Orion 38 Grau has a galvanised grey rhodium-plated dial, with diamond-polished stamped indexes, and polished, rhodium-plated hands.
Each watch in the Nomos Glashütte 38 series is powered by the in-house hand-wound Alpha movement, and comes with a Horween Shell Cordovan black strap.
