Product Details

The Nomos Orion series has always been one of the most refined in the Nomos collection. From the beautifully sculptured case to the slightly domed sapphire crystal, the Orion literally molds to the wrist.

But the real standout on this Nomos Orion is the dial - the blend of black indices with gold plated and diamond polished applied 5 minute markers makes this watch a work of art.

Nomos has added two new features to the latest Orion Datum - an increased case size (from 35 mm to 38 mm) and a larger date display at 6.

During our visit to the Nomos workshops, we saw first hand the production of these movements, including all of the intricate operations necessary to cut and clean the metal using two separate locations in the very small village of Glashutte, Germany.

The movement begins with a traditional Glashutte 3/4 plate which is rhodium plated and decorated with Glashutte ribbing and Langeleist perlage.

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 42 hours.

The dial contains an off-center subsidiary seconds dial, with baton hands made of steel tempered blue.

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.

New 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.

The Nomos watchmakers themselves are also excited about the new design. In the words of design engineer Mirko Heyne, We love simple and elegant solutions. Its nice that the patented Nomos date mechanism works in almost all of our models, even when its enlarged.

Nomos Orion

"Nomos Orion"

Verified Owner Comments: Everything I hoped for.

Another Wonderful Watch

"Another Wonderful Watch"

Verified Owner Comments: This is my second Nomos which begs the question, why would anyone need two 38mm Nomos watches? First of all, despite their size, the watches are very different. The bottom of The Orion's case is rounded unlike the Tangente. Instead of numerals, the Orion has gold indices. The gold indices warm up the appearance of the face. I believe that the Tangente has a more industrial design as compared to the Orion which is softer. Much is made of the fact that Nomos watches can be dressed up or down and this is true. However, in my opinion, I believe the Orion to be a dressier watch than the Tangente even though I would wear either one to a formal event. Note: I know that style mavens believe it is not proper wearing a watch with black tie because you are supposed to be having such a great time, you do not care about the time. Of all the watches I have worn, the Orion has received the most compliments. The Orion is a beautiful watch and a beloved part of my collection. If I had to chose which wa... - more details
