Nomos--the innovative Glashütte-based watch manufacturer--offers, in my opinion, some of the finest mechanical timepieces at Baselworld. Year after year, beginning in 2005 with the formulation of their first in-house movement, Nomos has gained more and more of a global presence. Also, Nomos has garnered a reputation for producing superior watches, and retailing them at totally unrivaled prices. At only a few thousand dollars, you can acquire a sleek Nomos wristwatch fitted with a superbly-finished Manufacture caliber.
Today, let's take a look at Nomos' most recent horological creation: The simple, yet sophisticated Minimatik.
Aforesaid in my introduction, the Minimatik is simple, no doubt; however, it is the exemplary 'all-purpose" wristwatch. This is the kind of watch you can practically wear anywhere: To the beach, to the office, to a formal occasion, or just around the house.
At 35.5 millimeters, by no means is this watch too small; at the same time, it isn't all oversized or, watch-god forbid, clumsy either.
The crisp, white silver dial is fairly bold--both size-wise and aesthetically. Blue pearled indexes add some character to the dial while deep red lacquered hands complement that blue hue.
The movement is the focal point of all Nomos timepieces. The Minimatik utilizes a DUW-3001 automatic-winding caliber. It's finely decorated with signature Glashütte ribbing and Nomos perlage. Furthermore, it presents a 42-hour power reserve.
Apart from the streamlined steel case, a handcrafted Horween shell cordovan strap completes this watch's contemporary appearance.
