Nomos Zurich World Timer Silver Dial
Product Details

This watch features a stunning dial along with a new home time indicator (now an icon in the shape of a house).

This watch also uses Nomos calibre DUW 5201 and incorporates the Nomos Swing System and escapement.

This is one of our most requested Nomos watches and one of the most difficult for us to keep in stock.


The Movement and Complication

This is among the most complicated watches ever produced in the Nomos collection, and is what we call a "real world time watch". The moment you open the box, you're struck by both the beauty of the design, the fit and finish and the elegant way that Nomos chose to engineer the world time complication.

To understand how this watch works, first set your "home time" indicated at the 3 position.

The next thing you need to know is the arrow at 12. This arrow is the second time zone indicator, and shows the correct time for that city through the use of a pusher at 2. The trick is to first adjust the watch to your correct home time (through a small pusher at 7) and then use the 12 to see the time zone for the correct city.


The New 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 Case

The late Hannes Wettstein, a renowned designer from Zurich, Switzerland drew up the plans for the case and his studio actually displayed the watch as part of the exhibition Neue Raeume - the leading design show in Switzerland. The case construction is quite intricate consisting of eight parts, and the design is among the most sophisticated that we've seen in a watch.


The Decoration

The movement decoration is in the style of Glashutte, and is beautifully finished. Since this watch is the flagship of the Nomos collection, everything about this watch is pure class.

The dial is galvanized while the hands are rhodium plated. The watch diameter is 40 mm and is topped with a domed sapphire crystal with sapphire crystal also on the back to view the beautifully decorated in-house movement. All of this packed in a case of only 10.8 mm tall.

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.

Comments about this watch: Very pleased with this watch.

I looked at a lot of GMT and World Timers before deciding on the Nomos Zurich World Timer. I was looking for an understated look with simplicity of operation. Love the 40 size. Glad it's not bigger or smaller.

This is my first purchase from WatchBuys. Phone service and shipping were exceptional and "as promised." Would do it again.

Beautiful watch, great service

Comments about this watch: The watch was everything I expected and have had two strangers ask where I purchased.

Service couldn't have been better I travel a lot and had the watch scheduled for shipment on a specific day and it arrived as promised!
