    Picture Nomos vs. Stowa...

    The long and short of my collection, in photos. Both of these are proper keepers.

    Instead of a review, I decided to have some fun with photos instead.

    In terms of the movement... Visually, they both are pretty close. Stowa has gone with a well-decorated version of the 2824-2, and a really nice rotor, so the summary "effect" is no worse than from Nomos' inhouse movement.

    (Yes, I put a Nomos velour strap on the Stowa. It feels nicer ^^)

    One good thing about both of these is that they are thin. About 10mm for the Stowa, and about 8.8mm on the Nomos.

    Nice pics! While I like the look of some of the Nomos's, I can't seen to get past what seem to be way longer than needed lugs. It just seems like it would make a dressier watch wear much bigger than needed. I could be wrong as i've never actually tried one on.

    Yep, the lugs are a rather contested part of Nomos' design approach. I've seen a lot of people remark on them, both in positive and negative light ^^.

    I have to disagree with you just a little bit. I think the Nomos movement looks quite a bit better. Two nice watches, in any case.

    Agreed. I hadn't appreciated how beautiful the Nomos movements were until I got to handle a piece at a local AD. They are stunning, and I have yet to see photo on the Interwebz that do them justice.

    The Glashutte ribbing is all about moving it around in the light, isn't it? A picture couldn't quite capture all the little details that make it so simple but so interesting.

    Stowa for me...

    Heh. Can't say I've ever made that association ^^.

    Tbh, the relatively long lugs make the club wear larger and more comfortable. With "normal lugs", it would be way too small a watch for everyday wear.
