Introducing The NOMOS Glashütte Tangente ‘A Century Of Bauhaus’ Limited Editions (Exclusive)

Brisk Take

One of the words frequently used to depict NOMOS Glashütte’s watches is “Bauhaus.” While that may be utilized as shorthand to cover things like “insignificant” and “smooth,” it’s essential to recall that the Bauhaus is a genuine spot. The world-renowned school of craftsmanship and configuration was established in Weimar, Germany, in 1919, implying that one year from now will be its 100th commemoration. Notwithstanding shutting in 1933 (as a large portion of its personnel escaped the country leading the pack up to World War II), the effect of the Bauhaus on twentieth century configuration truly couldn’t be more important. Educators at the school included author Walter Gropius, a couple pair Josef and Anni Albers, Marcel Breuer, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, László Moholy-Nagy, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, and the sky is the limit from there. Definitely, it’s sort of a major deal. 

So, considering the entirety of that, it’s just fitting that NOMOS would deliver an assortment of restricted release watches to praise the Bauhaus’ century. The Tangente “A Century Of Bauhaus” assortment is a progression of nine watches, all minor departure from a topic. The Tangente is kind of the ur NOMOS, and here we see the first, hand-twisted form taking all things together three significant sizes – 33mm, 35mm, and 38mm – each with three exceptional dial medicines. The base dial tone is “sketch paper”, which is a matte, marginally yellowed tone, and afterward the circuit of each is ringed in one of the three essential tones, which were considered particularly critical to the Bauhaus craftsmen. Securing the entirety of this is a bunch of dark hands that coordinate the printed markers and complete the downplayed look.

Each of the nine forms of the watch is restricted to 100 numbered pieces, with etchings on the strong steel casebacks for each. 

Introductory Thoughts

To shock totally no one, I’ll simply say it: I’m super into these and truly like that NOMOS is planning something for commend the Bauhaus’ enormous commemoration (if somewhat early). The vast majority think Bauhaus and accept it implies all white everything and a specific portion of sterility. Not really. The way that NOMOS is inclining toward the more imaginative standards of Bauhaus lessons and is taking motivation from the genuine act of making (consequently the “sketch paper” hued dials) is both shrewd and a decent method to veer away from what individuals may have been anticipating from a restricted version like this.

Since there are really nine watches here, there’s a lovely sound portion of assortment, in light of everything. As far as I might be concerned, I think I’d pick the 35mm Tangente with the blue accents on the off chance that I needed to pick only one. The difference between the glow of the dial and the cool ring around the external edge makes it stand apart from the other two colorways, and the 35mm form of this watch actually has the best equilibrium and extents (it is the first, after all).
