Nomos Glashütte Tangente 35 
Ref 139
Box and papers


Having worn this watch for some days to test it and form an opinion, I would certainly own one in future. It's rarer that I offer a practically new watch and say that. The Bahaus design is polorising, but in my eyes, paired with smart casual wear or smarter wear, it would look great. If you're quite minimalistic in your dress sense, it is also ideal. Nomos appeal more to the fashionable watch wearer over the purest (Not to say you can't be both). Sterile German design, executed perfectly.

 

Condtion note:

You are essentially getting a new watch. This watch has only very minor surface scratches in some areas, likely used for marketing or worn a handful of times.

Nomos own description:

It is the watch of choice among architects and writers, a multiple prizewinner, and the iconic NOMOS timepiece: Tangente. With clear lines and perfect proportions, tempered blue hands on a white silver-plated dial, a strap from Horween Genuine Shell Cordovan. And of course—the hand-wound NOMOS Alpha caliber, visible through the sapphire crystal glass back; a classic itself.
