Product Details

Nomos Swing
DUW 4101 Calibre "Swing System"


This watch features the new Nomos Swing System - a spring and escapement designed and built by Nomos.

The distinctive blue balance spring can be used to identify Nomos watches using the Swing System.





What is the Nomos Swing System?

Nomos has been working on their new escapement for a number of years, featuring an in-house balance spring, anchor and anchor wheel. The new Nomos balance spring was developed together with the German balance spring specialist Carl Haas and is immediately recognizable by its blue color.

Nomos Glashutte has spent more than 11 million Euros over the last few years to develop their movement components, of which this new swing escapement is a major developmental cost.

All Nomos movements featuring this new swing system will be designated as DUW (Deutsche Uhrenwerke).




The Nomos Tangente remains a signature watch for the brand. This version of the Tangente adds two new features to the original Tangente, while retaining the manually wound movement: 
  • Case size increased from 35 mm to 38.0 mm
  • Large date display at 6

Silver plated dial with a combination of Arabic and hour markings.

The dial contains an off-center subsidiary seconds dial. The dial is first sand blasted, then bathed in silver to provide the unique Nomos coloring. The baton hands are made of polished steel and are blued.

The case is made in a special steel alloy which is nickel-free.  Sapphire crystal on front and back.

And last but not least - the strap. Nomos watches use hand stitched straps made from Shell Cordovan. The leather is very smooth, durable, water-resistant and extremely long-lived.


Large Date Display

This watch features a new patented Nomos large date display. This date display is not only easier to read because of its larger size, it's also printed in the typography used on the overall dial design.


To make room for all of the additional parts required for this new large date display, the overall case size of the watch has been increased from earlier models.

NOMOS Tangente 38

"NOMOS Tangente 38"

John S

Comments about this watch: Beautiful watch that screams quality across the room. A work of art to wear on your wrist. You won't be disappointed.

I Really Love This Watch

"I Really Love This Watch"

Rand M.

Comments about this watch: One day it struck me that my dive watches may not be the best choice to wear with a suit, particularly if I was looking for that sophisticated look. I have owned a Nomos before and remembered the outstanding quality of these watches. For my slightly larger than 7 inch wrist, the 38mm is perfect.

These watches wear a little large because of the thin bezel. I really love this watch and it may be the only watch I own besides an atomic G-shock that keeps perfect time.

On a final note, I enjoy the manual wind. I once had a watchmaker tell me that the beauty of manual winds is that they need you as much as you need them. I really love this watch.
