Just this spring, Nomos Glashütte released its iconic Tangente, Ludwig, and Orion models with an entirely new caliber and integrated date function—and so the Update series was born. One of those revised icons, Orion, is poised for another variation. Joining the white silver-plated dial are two new color versions: an elegant midnight blue and olive gold, a subtle shade of green with a touch of golden warmth.
As one of the brand’s earliest models, which formed the first family of Nms Glashütte watches in 1992, Orion can rightfully stake its claim as a classic timepiece. The model was long available exclusively with manual winding, since only a very thin movement could be housed in its elegantly domed stainless steel case. With the Update series, which introduced a new neomatik date caliber (DUW 6101), the still super-slender Orion grew to a diameter of 41 millimeters. Winding occurs with the smallest movements of the wrist, allowing the date and time to be displayed automatically.
