Manufacture Visit: Behind The Scenes At NOMOS Glashütte (VIDEO)
Manufacture Visit

Today we proudly take you behind the scenes at NOMOS Glashütte. Known for their unique design language, NOMOS Glashütte is one of very few independent watchmakers that not only produces its own calibers in-house, but also produces their very own escapementEscapement The escapement is a mechanism in a mechanical watch movement that regulates the release of energy from the mainspring and keeps the watch ticking at a steady rate. The escapement is made up of two main components: the escape wheel and the pallet fork. The escapement is responsible for the ticking sound of the watch, and it ensures that the watch runs at a consistent rate. As the escape wheel rotates forward, it locks and unlocks with the pallet fork, allowing a small amount of energy from the mainspring to be released. This causes the balance wheel to oscillate and the watch to 'tick'. [Learn More]. In this video tour, we take you behind the scenes at NOMOS. We start our journey in the Production Hall, and also have a closer look at what happens at their Chronometrie up in the hills of Glashütte. Click below to view the full video:

Sincere thanks to all the wonderful people at NOMOS that welcomed us and tolerated our presence on the workfloor. It was a real pleasure and I hope this video shows you all what makes them so special indeed.

  1. Easy to see why Dufour is a fan! Used to have a Tangente, now have a Club and I wear it pretty much all the time. Really nice to see the work that goes into these watches

    1. Hah Yes, that was quite the feedback. I quote from Revolution “Philippe Dufour: I would say that you could buy at this price, maybe a bit less, a very good watch in terms of value and quality. It’s not Swiss — sorry — [but] a German brand called NOMOS. I found that this brand makes a very serious product.” 🤟

  2. Excellent video, really enjoyed this. Makes me appreciate my OG Metro even more 😊 Thank you for sharing guys!

    1. Absolutely love the first Metro, with its mint power reserveRéserve de marche Also known as Power Reserve. A watch's power reserve refers to the amount of time a mechanical watch can run without being wound. The power reserve of a mechanical watch can vary depending on the size of the mainspring, the efficiency of the gear train, and the rate at which the mainspring releases energy. If a watch has a Power Reserve 'complication' it simply means that the status of the power reserve can be seen on the watch itself (either on the dial or movement side of the watch).

    1. Thanks man, let’s make sure we go together next time around. More importantly: Let’s make sure I don’t mess up our schedule again 🙂

      Yes that picture is in fact taken from the ‘Chronometrie’ building (second part of the movie). Was so focused on video, I did not take enough pictures from the area, it is beautiful over there. This is basically the ‘office view’ that their watchmakers have, not bad no? 🙂 In the distance on the right side (near the GO building if you can see it) is their third building, which is the HQ which you briefly see at the start of the video.

  3. I love your work.. I’m keen for a classic leather strap for my father’s old Certina DS288 which I’ve had restored and wear regularly. The clearance around the pins is quite tight, when buying NATOs for it I have to seek out very thin ones. Can you deliver me a strong durable leather strap for it? Happy to take measurements..
