NOMOS Launches Tangente Neomatik Platinum Gray Watch

The new Nomos Tangente Neomatik Platinum Gray watch comes presented for the first time with a solid caseback option for a special engraving and is powered by a new movement to coincide with the model’s all-new platinum grey-coloured dial.


If you’re a loyal Nomos fan, you’ll already own a few Tangente watches. The Nomos Tangente is, of course, considered an entry point into the world of Nomos watch collecting, so it may even have been your first investment from this brand. Nomos is renowned for creating wristwatches that tell distinctly modern stories through aesthetics deeply routed in historic design. Many a collector loves a Nomos watch, whether it be from the Tangente line, the Tangomat, the Metric, Ludwig, Orion or Minimatik, mainly for the way in which they offer a blank canvas to begin making memories with.


Why the Nomos Tangente is so special


The story of the Nomos Tangente watch spans as far back as the company’s first quartet of wristwatches introduced back in 1991. It was (and still is) billed “the classic Bauhaus” design, despite its contemporary nature that fits effortlessly into the lifestyle of a modern 21st-century gentleman. The Tangente is an award-winning classic and has continued to prove itself a bestseller over the last 25 years. Characterised for its slender depth and perfectly round case shape, there is perhaps no other modest and understated dress watch that creates such a statement on the wrist, no matter the occasion. The design is described by Nomos as confident in style, straightforward and harmonious.



Last year the Nomos Tangente was equipped with the Neomatik Date DUW 6101 Calibre for the Nomos Tangente Neomatik 41 Update watch, representing a whole new generation for this classic family of wristwatches. Before then, Tangente watches by Nomos had mainly been associated with the Alpha Calibre – an in-house manufactured movement that offers a 43-hour power reserve. That’s now about to change with the launch of the new Nomos Tangente Neomatik Platinum Gray watch…


The new Nomos Tangente Neomatik Platinum Gray watch


The new Nomos Tangente Neomatik Platinum Gray puts the dress watch under the spotlight again, showing the world why this style of luxury watch is still an important contender in a market that is currently overcrowded with sports watches and chronographs. As a svelte member of Nomos’ conception, the Tangente has received a stylish update and now comes in the form of a platinum grey-coloured dial. At the same time, all signature elements that make this flagship watch such a favourite are still celebrated.



There are two sizes to explore in the design of the new Nomos Tangente Neomatik Platinum Gray watch – a 35mm and a 39mm. Thin angular lugs lead to the familiar natural and organic shape of this popular watch. The downward trajectory of the lugs conform to the shape of the wrist easier, whilst external lug holes make for an easy strap change.


The new in-house Neomatik calibre DUW 3001 defines this Tangente Platinum Gray watch. Fitted with Nomos’ in-house escapement named the Swing System, it promises a high level of precision. Revealed for the first time in 2014 as Baselworld, Nomos’ Swing System innovation was vastly respected for its completely independent design. The movement provides a 43-hour power reserve and sits inside the model’s case at a mere depth of just 3.2mm. There is another first to note about this new model, however. It is the first to feature a solid caseback option (as well as a sapphire-backed option). It not only helps to cut down on manufacturing costs, reflecting in a more affordable timepiece for the consumer but also offers the option for a special personalised engraving should one wish.



Nomos artisans achieve this unusual platinum grey dial effect by applying a rhodium galvanization process to the dial that creates a slate hue. In addition to this, the platinum grey dial of this Nomos Glashutte Tangente Neomatik watch features the familiar printed Bauhaus-style Arabic numerals and alternating stick markers, along with a small second sub-dial located at 6 o’clock. Together, these elements create a crisp appearance under the lens of a scratch-resistant and anti-reflective piece of sapphire crystal glass. The only splash of colour upon the dial is the “Neomatik” lettering positioned just above the 12 o’clock location.


The new Nomos Tangente Neomatik Platinum Gray watch, crafted from polished stainless steel, is fitted on a classic black leather band. The 35mm and 39mm versions, both with different caseback options, share a slim bezel design that opens up the minimalistic face of the dial and allows the consumer to choose precisely which model best suits their wrist.
