    Nomos at Basel: Zürich now in colours

    Blue-ribbon NOMOS



    The Glashütte sunray decoration graces new variants of the most manly of NOMOS watches: Zürich blaugold is coming to the market.

    Glashütte, March 2012.

    “Blue is the typical heavenly color,” said the famous artist Yves Klein. Blue stimulates creativity and contemplation. And blue gold? It
    does the same: a nonfading, deep blue that can also be called royal blue, Paris blue, French blue, Prussian blue, or ink blue. Zürich blaugold is the name of the
    first of two new models from the Glashütte manufactory; the optical qualities of gold have been transferred to the (almost complementary) color blue. A color it
    would be hard to imagine doing without in men’s fashions in 2012. At the same time, NOMOS Glashütte’s new Zürich variant is timeless. The
    Glashütte sunray decoration—a polishing traditionally used by watchmakers in the Ore Mountains—adorns the blue gold dial of this special men’s watch. Its
    elegant stainless steel case with all its logical twists was drawn by the exceptional Zurich designer Hannes Wettstein. The gaze falls through its slender bezel onto the clear, easily readable dial with faceted hands and applique. A new favorite piece. NOMOS self-winding caliber Epsilon, the movement with excellent rate accuracy and great power reserve from the Glashütte manufactory makes it tick. Coming this spring at NOMOS specialized dealers along with its brown gold sibling.

    First Nomos I actually like, wish it was a bit larger though, maybe 41 - 41 mm?

    The press release wording doesn't thrill me, but the watch sure does.

    They're beautiful, especially the blue one. For some reason I'm thinking it might look great on high quality mesh bracelet.

    The Zurich is a beautiful watch and I would assume that the blue dial is quite striking in the metal. I cannot wait to see some real pictures.
