Product Details

At first glance, the Nomos watches Tangomat and Tangomat Date appear to simply be larger versions of the Tangente.

Mirko Heyne, the design engineer responsible for the Nomos Tangomat, explains their use of a strong mainspring and a large balance in the Tangomat to obtain a highly accurate rate. Mirko is quoted as saying "The accuracy of the rate is excellent. The deviation is considerably less than one minute a week, a performance on par with the accuracy of a certified chronometer."

Using larger components to obtain a good accuracy rate required the power of a large and heavy bidirectional rotor. Mirko comments that "The radius of the Nomos rotor is larger than the radius of rotors in comparable watches, and this bigger radius translates into more efficient winding."

In addition to being highly accurate, 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.

Beautiful silver plated dial with a combination of Arabic and hour markings. The dial contains an off-center subsidiary seconds dial with a date window. 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.

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.

Beautiful, modern simplicity

"Beautiful, modern simplicity"

Verified Owner Comments: I ordered this watch with some trepidation since I had not seen one personally, but I am extremely happy with how well the watch feels, functions and looks.

Extremely well made, and the price for the quality is unbeatable.

Nomos Tangomat

"Nomos Tangomat"

Verified Owner Comments: The Nomos Tangomat has a clean and understated design that fits comfortably on your wrist but it takes just one glance at the clear back of the case to see the intricate mechanism that represents a wonder of engineering on this watch.

I could not be happier with my purchase or with the service provided by WatchBuys.

Meets all expectations

"Meets all expectations"

Verified Owner Comments: This is my first automatic mechanical watch. I chose Nomos Tangomat Datum after almost 2 years of researching watches.

The Tangomat meets all expectations of a nouveau watch connoisseur.

Great Watch

"Great Watch"

Verified Owner Comments: The best, nicest looking watch I've owned.

I've had a GMT Master 2 Rolex for 10 years and received more compliments on my Nomos in the first couple of months than on my GMT in its life time (I write this not because I'm looking for compliments, but to point out that it's an understated watch that is so beautiful in its simplicity).

Surprisingly sleek looking

"Surprisingly sleek looking"

Verified Owner Comments: The watch itself is better looking than its picture. Very clean and modern, MOMA should have it in their collection.

Great piece of work. I'm wishing NOMOS will have a chronograph soon.

Great Watch

"Great Watch"

Verified Owner Comments: I just purchased this watch, having waited for it for about 2 months. I have other NOMOS watches in my collection and I have been pleased with the overall quality, simple, and in my humble opinion elegant designs of these watches.

I must say that I was a bit hesitant with this watch at first because it is larger (it appears this trend with watches getting bigger continues) and it is NOMOS' first attempt in the automatic movement field; however, after wearing it, I must admit it is a great watch and highly accurate!!

Kudos to the Watchbuys guys for keeping this brand in their lineup!!

Excellent Watch

"Excellent Watch"

Verified Owner Comments: Disclaimer - I've had it for less than a day as I write this, but having waited a few months for it, I must say that I wasn't let down.

Beautiful watch, movement is gorgeous and unique - as much as I love shell cordovan shoes, though, I might've preferred a gator strap. On the other hand, shell ages very nicely and develops a much deeper patina than calfskin; we'll see. I'll update on performance in a few weeks!


"NOMOS Owner"

Verified Owner Comments: Purchased this watch, my second NOMOS and am loving it. If you like the original NOMOS you are going to love this automatic version with date. Designed in the BAUHAUS style I get comments on it all the time.

My enjoyment continues whenever I check the time on my wrist. Long after the purchase price is forgotten the quality remains. The accuracy of mine is much better than a minute a month, more on par with 10 seconds a month, unreal!
