The German town of Glashütte has been a centre for fine watchmaking since 1845. Nomos Glashütte is marking the occasion with three limited-edition versions of a classic model.

Roman numerals, subtle indexes, railroad minute markers—also known by the French name chemin de fer. All gathered in a slender case reminiscent of a pocket watch: Nomos Ludwig is a watch that could hardly be more classic. A timepiece for people who treasure traditions. That is why Nomos is celebrating Glashütte watchmaking, which started 175 years ago in eastern Germany, with a limited edition of this classic timepiece. There are three versions, each limited to just 175 pieces, and regulated by Nomos as a chronometer would be.

Alongside the hand-wound version with the Nomos Alpha caliber (Ludwig – 175 Years Watchmaking Glashütte), there are two versions with innovative automatic calibers from Nomos Glashütte: DUW 3001 (Ludwig neomatik 39) and DUW 6101 (Ludwig neomatik 41 date). These two neomatik movements represent a new technical standard. Typical Glashütte features are visible through the sapphire crystal glass: the three-quarter plate, tempered blue screws, ribbed polishing, and the Nomos swing system. This in-house designed and built escapement sets the pace inside the caliber.
