WatchPro is a fan of both of Nomos’ watchmaking showcase lines with the new Lambda Deep Blue already being highly commended in the Luxury category.

The Lux was updated last month with a slimmer tonneau case for ‘feminine wrists’ and three new dial colours. The Ermine will undoubtedly be the most popular, the blue-grey not a million miles away from the first generation’s powder blue dial. We’re also big fans of the fairly divisive and undeniably loud Cicada colour.

Both Lux and Lambda sit at the very top of Nomos’ pricing structure, roughly three times more costly than Nomos’ next most expensive model, the complicated Zurich World Timer.

But for that extra spend the Lux features an 18ct rose gold case and highly-decorated DUW 2002 in-house movement with sunbeam polishing, screwed gold chatons, swan neck fine adjustment and balance cock hand-engraved with the phrase Mit Liebe in Glashütte Gefertigt or ‘lovingly produced in Glashütte’.
