DUW 3001 is an entirely new automatic caliber. For at 6.9 millimeters tall, Tangente Automatik is only a tick wider than the hand-wound version; or 0.3 millimeters to be exact.

This new caliber no longer features a classic balance cock. The NOMOS balance bridge has taken its place—this beautiful little connecting part ensures that the balance is stably positioned. It also creates extra space for the rotor that winds the mainspring in automatic calibers, producing energy even from the smallest movements.

It is the combination of advantages that is so groundbreaking—since until now, there have been no automatic watches that are just as flat, highly accurate, and affordable. The design engineers at NOMOS Glashütte created the slender work of watchmaking wonder with two tricks: Firstly, almost all the caliber parts were inserted between the base plate and the three-quarter plate, avoiding adding any further parts on top of the movement. Secondly, the production tolerances for parts were reduced by up to 50 percent so that excellent accuracy could be maintained despite the slenderness of the movement.
