Glashütte Travel Tip:
Nomos Glashütte is a German luxury watch-making company that was founded in 1991 in Glashütte, Saxony by Roland Schwertner.
The name includes Glashütte to distinguish it from a different "Nomos" watch-making company called Nomos-Uhr-Gesellschaft, Guido Müller & Co. (Nomos Watch Company), which imported Swiss watches and sold them under the prestigious label Glashütte / Sachsen. This firm was sued by A. Lange & Söhne, leading to the end of the company in 1910.
The new Nomos has focused on manufacturing mechanical watches with hand-wound movements. The basis for the movement was, until 2005, the Swiss-made ETA SA / Peseux 7001. These watches bear the label "Glashütte / SA" and "Made in Germany", and have gilded movements.
Since April 2005 Nomos has only used in-house movements called "Alpha" (standard manual movement), "Beta" (with date display), and "Delta" (with date and power reserve display). These new movements are labelled "Glashütte" and "Germany" (or "Made in Germany" for more recent watches) and are nickel plated with Geneva stripes. In the summer of 2006 the "Tangomat" was introduced. This watch includes the movement "Epsilon" (automatic) or "Zeta" (automatic with date display).
