Nomos Glashütte has unveiled the Lux and Lambda models, which each feature a new in-house movement and demonstrate what the watchmaker is capable of.
Lux and Lamda are two new hand-wound models that will be available in selected retailers from November, after officially launching at SalonQP in November. Both watches are available in white gold and the Lambda piece also comes in rose gold, with a dial that is silver plated by granulation.
Speaking about the launches, Nomos Glashütte general manager Uwe Ahrendt said: "We wanted to create works of watchmaking art, individual pieces that demonstrate what we can do. Watches that will stay beautiful over decades to come – and with a value that will continue to grow."
The Lambda model is round, while the Lux has a classic tonneau shape. The Lambda is cream, while the Lux model comes in blue and off white.
The Lambda features the DUW 1001 and the Lux, the DUW 2002. DUW stands for Deutsche Uhrenwerke Nomos Glashütte, two movement developments that demonstrate the brand’s watchmaking prowess. Thanks to twin mainspring barrels, both the DUW 1001 and DUW 2002 have a power reserve of 84 hours, in the DUW 1001 this is shown on the dial, while Lux manages it with only three hands.
The calibre side of the watches, which can be seen through the caseback, features a swan neck fine adjustment, rhodium-plated three-quarter plate, edges angled and polished by hand, and fine sunbeam polishing. As well as screwed gold chatons, a screw balance and hand-engraved balance cock that reads Mit Liebe in Glashütte gerfertigt’, meaning lovingly produced in Glashütte.
