Nomos Metro 38 Datum Urban Grey Glass Back Watch

USD 3,480

The Armoury is proud to carry a selection of watches from German based watchmakers, Nomos Glashütte. Sometimes seen as the new guys on the block, Nomos has quickly made a name for themselves in the watch world, boasting in-house production and a unique bauhaus inspired aesthetic.

The Metro 38 Datum is generously proportioned, sophisticated, wonderfully beautiful. Without a power reserve indicator, this watch is even clearer, more paired down and, thanks to a growth spurt, a little more masculine too. This timepiece may be utterly cosmopolitan, but it also presents Glashütte watchmaking craft at its finest. A glance through the sapphire crystal glass back reveals the movement DUW 4101 with the NOMOS swing system—the in-house escapement which helped the model Metro win appreciation and fan letters from around the world.
