Nomos is known for making some truly decent Bauhaus-motivated watches that are done to an elevated requirement as well as offer an incredible incentive in the passage level extravagance watch market. Being an admirer of professional oversimplified plans, I have consistently kept an eye out for any new contributions from Nomos, however didn’t have the occasion to deal with one face to face until a month ago when I at long last had the chance to audit an uncommon restricted version watch from the brand for the retailer Timeless Luxury Watches. The Nomos Timeless Club II separates itself from the first model by having a blue dial with red accents, which I truly developed to like.
If you investigate the Nomos watch list as it is today, you would see that a considerable piece of their assortment is comprised of rich looking, conventional watches. In spite of the fact that those watches unquestionably remain all alone regarding what they offer, they do will in general get somewhat dreary now and again, and that is the place where the brand’s Club assortment comes into the image, making things a touch more energetic and lively. Having said that, what I truly love in the majority of the Club watches is the manner by which flexible they are.
The Nomos Timeless Club II, as the name recommends, is an aftereffect of a coordinated effort between the people at Timeless extravagance Watches and Nomos, and is the replacement to the Nomos Timeless Club delivered in 2015 . The version II offers many subtleties with its archetype aside from a couple of key contrasts. This rendition shares the 38.5mm case and the blue and red colorway however Timeless have worked effectively of improving the past adaptation by making the dial look cleaner, precluding the date usefulness, and simultaneously, presenting another and intriguing blue and yellow colorway.
Whenever I take a gander at another watch, my relationship with the watch is reliant upon how alluring I discover the dial of the watch, and I was glad to discover this dial to be top notch and engaging. The base dial shade of this watch is a quite inconspicuous shade of blue and has a matte completion to it. The shading plays truly well with the light and grandstands various tints of blue contingent upon the lighting conditions the dial is presented to. The fly of shading on this watch comes as the splendid red moment markings alongside the red auxiliary seconds hand, which truly causes this watch to feel vivacious and energetic. Furthermore, simply in the event that red isn’t your preference regarding shading, you can settle on the blue and yellow combination which is the second variety of this watch.
Being in the IT business, another significant viewpoint I search for is the way well the watch would admission in an office climate. Frankly, when I previously took a gander at the press renders of the Nomos Timeless Club II, I had my questions about the blue and red shading plan being excessively pretentious (all things considered, for a Nomos). In any case, having taken care of the watch actually and wearing it to the workplace routinely for quite a long time, I can guarantee you that this watch can undoubtedly pull it off as a decent dress watch, particularly when combined with a pleasant calfskin lash, for example, the one it comes on.
The hour markers on this watch are a blend of printed numerals just as implement style markers. This is a fascinating decision as it makes the dial look unmistakable and furthermore gives the watch a lively edge. The markers alongside the hour and moment hands have been painted with iridescent material, and in spite of the fact that the gleam isn’t as splendid as a plunge watch, it’s unquestionably useful and assists with perusing the time in low-perceivability circumstances. Another intriguing point of interest is the utilization of a different shade of lume for the hour and moment hands as compared to the hour markers. The hour markers have a green sparkle to them, while the handset shines blue. While I don’t know of the purpose for this, as this isn’t actually a plunge watch, it sure looks cool. The moment markers on the Nomos Timeless Club II are these slight printed white lines with printed red numerals at the 5-minute stretches. At long last, you have the splendid red seconds hand, which is shade or two more obscure than the red moment markers and is focused on the sub-dial at 6 o’clock. The sub-dial has additionally been recessed, adding some profundity and visual dynamic to the dial. It likewise has a printed part ring to peruse the passed seconds precisely.
The Nomos Timeless Club II comes in a cleaned hardened steel case with a breadth of 38.5mm, a carry to-drag distance of around 48.75mm, and a thickness of simply 8.45mm. As you would have speculated by taking a gander at the specs and photographs, the watch is actually very comfortable to wear and sits well on the wrist because of the bended hauls and the low thickness of the watch. The watch wears somewhat bigger than what the distance across recommends and that is because of lengthened carries. This is something that can be seen in other Club models also and can be considered as both a hit and a miss. That’s on the grounds that the lengthened carries unquestionably help the watch look bigger on the wrist yet what that likewise implies is that you wind up having a critical hole between the case and the lash, offering approach to show your skin underneath.
Having been a fanatic of the Nomos Club, I was at that point mindful of this detail and was truly anxious to observe this detail face to face. Furthermore, however it is out of line to state that this detail isn’t diverting, I would likewise concede that I got over it in several days of wearing the watch and don’t feel its reality any longer. Yet, once more, that is simply me and in the event that you are truly keen on purchasing this watch, I would propose you proceed to give the watch a shot your wrist before you settle on a buy choice. Another great component to consider is that the case is water-impervious to 100m, which suggests that you could even swim with this watch.
The top of the case has a thick cleaned bezel which holds the sapphire precious stone set up, giving a reasonable view to the dial. Flipping the watch over, you are welcomed by a lovely perspective on the physically wound development kindness of the sapphire precious stone show caseback. Instead of the DUW4101 development, Nomos selected the more seasoned Alpha type. The Alpha type which is used in this watch is the very development that has been utilized by Timeless in the Orion Midnight Edition and highlights the brand’s in-house “Swing System,” making it a greater amount of an updated Alpha type. This development has 17 Jewels, beats at a recurrence of 21,600bph, and offers a force hold of around 43 hours. The development has been flawlessly enriched utilizing Glashütte stripes on the ¾ plate, just as blued screws and perlage on the base plate. This is such an embellishment which has made them flip the watch over to take a gander at the movement.
I have consistently been attached to the Club assortment from Nomos, yet I should state that Timeless and Nomos have truly made a remarkable and particular joint effort with the Nomos Timeless Club II. I truly made some incredible memories wearing this watch and would energetically recommend it to somebody who is anticipating purchasing an adaptable extravagance watch with an in-house development at a generally reasonable value point. The two variations of the watch will be restricted to a creation run of 100 pieces and come fitted with a pleasant dark shell cordovan tie. In spite of the fact that the tie is top notch, I found the general length of the tie to be somewhat short as I was at that point utilizing the keep going pin opening on my tie to get a comfortable fit. Along these lines, I would propose checking with Timeless to check whether they have the ties accessible in a bigger size, particularly in the event that you have generally enormous wrists. The watch comes in an exquisite wooden box and retails for $2,160. nomos-glashuette.com | timelessluxwatches.com
