The Nomos Tangente Power Reserve Date features a Nomos in-house movement with sapphire crystal back. The movement begins with a traditional Glashutte 3/4 plate which is rhodium plated and decorated with Glashutte ribbing and Langeleist perlage.
The power reserve module used in this watch is designed and finished in house, and is a very unusual power reserve display. On most watches, the power reserve is indicated by a hand pointing to "Low" or "Full", similar in function to that of a car gas gauge.
The Nomos power reserve shows the amount of wind remaining in the watch through a circular opening in the dial between 12 and 1. When the watch is fully wound, this opening will show no color at all. As the watch winds down, a red display begins to appear, increasing in size to completely red as the power depletes, as in our photograph above.
Next, the ratchet and crown wheels are decorated with traditional Glashutte starburst patterns. Finely blued screws are used throughout, and other features include Triovis fine adjustment in four positions, hack mechanism, Nomos click, and power reserve of 45 hours.
This watch is extremely comfortable to wear thanks to its uniquely designed lugs. Be sure to expand the picture above, and you will be able to see the curved pattern in the lugs which causes the watch to mold to the wrist, and creates a length of 45 mm lug end to lug end.
Beautiful 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 then flame blued.
The case is made in a special steel alloy which is nickel-free. When you purchase this watch from WatchBuys, your name and serial number are registered with Nomos entitling you to a US warranty. This watch is water resistant to 30 meters. Sapphire crystal on front.
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.
