MECHANICAL WATCHES OF THE YEAR: Nomos Glashutte Ahoi Atlantik Datum


Germany’s Nomos does not drift far from its signature minimalistic Bauhaus-inspired designs, but manages to create collections that appeal to men, women, business executives, surfers and pretty much everybody inbetween who loves simplicity coupled with precise engineering.

The Ahoi Atlantik Datum is pitched at sporty people, adventurers, and all those who dream of living a little more, and its blue dial is supposed to remind people of the ocean along the wild Atlantic shoreline.

The details are quite distinct compared to other Nomos models. For example, the oversized date positioned below the small seconds sub dial is eye-catching. The golden hour and minute hands filled with pale blue superluminova contrast with the darker dial colour with slim golden numbers marking the hours.

The watch is also waterproof thanks to the screw in crown, which protects the reliable DUW 5101 automatic movement
