This year, German watch manufacturer Nomos Glashütte is celebrating “175 Years of Watchmaking Glashütte” and with that its own history. This celebration is certainly done in style and with haute horlogerie packaged in stainless steel in form of Lambda watches in enamel white, black, and blue limited edition.
The name Lambda comes from the world of mathematics where it stands for “intrinsic values” – which are values that remain constant. In this anniversary edition, Nomos skillfully combines a new stainless steel case, a new size and new dials in enamel. The official name name of the series is “Lambda 175 Years Watchmaking Glashütte”. All models in this special edition celebrate the stunningly simple beauty of Nomos Glashütte watches.
The polished stainless steel case makes the Lambda extremely suitable for everyday wear. The case frames the dial with a slender bezel, while the transition from the side to the back is a radiodrome; that is, a curve with a shrinking radius. The lugs reflect the curved from the case as well. The latter presents itself with a diameter of 40.5 millimetres and is water-resistant up to 3 bar.
The enamel gloss of the dials offers an unusual optical depth; an effect enhanced by the curve of the dial and the sapphire crystal glass. Nomos Glashütte has equipped the Lambda with a complication – a power reserve indicator. It is a very prominent feature, as it sweeps an arc across the dial and tracks 84 hours, or three-an-a-half days, accurate to the hour. The four needle-thin hands give this watch model a graceful elegance – with finds featues reminiscent of a kinetic sculpture.
All three Lambda 175 Years Watchmaking Glashütte models are powered by the DUW 1001 calibre. This flat automatic movement with twin mainspring barrels is lavishly finished; the fine sunburst polishing on the three-quarter plate is not only eye-catchingly beautiful but also visible through the sapphire crystal case back.
All three versions of the Lambda 175 Years Watchmaking Glashütte are limited to 175 pieces per colour. The watches are completed by a leather strap.
