Colorful Watches---Nomos Tetra Berlin Collection
Nomos makes a reputation for itself by doing things its very own way rather than following other brands or chasing after the most recent trend. Ideas have four new assumes the fundamental Tetra, Nomos's square watch, which were developed in Berlin to mirror four significant landmarks within the German capital.
Three of the four continue to be operated by the in-house alpha caliber, an excellent by hand-wound movement produced in Glashu1tte, and you will find four colors of different extremes to select from. The Tetra Berlin collection is a mixture of traditional elements and modern flourishes that's noticeably Nomos.
The concept behind the Tetra Berlin collection would be to celebrate the variety of the city by referencing four important landmarks over the city. While visually the watches are not the same, all of them start with similar foundation. First there's the 29.5mm square case that sits in a slim 6.3mm thick with walked lugs. With the sapphire back you can observe the in-house Nomos alpha caliber that is a simple by hand wound movement with three-quarter plate construction, 17 jewels, along with a 43 hour power reserve. It's decorated with Glashu1tte ribbing and perlage, and is a very nice little movement.
Of the four, our two faves would be the Nachtijall and Goldelse, named for that mockingbirls living within the Grunewald woodlands and also the Victory Column in Tiergarten, correspondingly. The previous includes a deep midnight blue lacquer dial with gold hands and markings. It includes color without having to be noisy or outrageous. The Goldelse alternatively hand includes a rose gold gal dial that's a very light blush color. It features a brushed finish, gold hands, and silver dial markings to complement the steel case. For any ladies dress watch, it's pretty just right.
For something even the much more bold, there's the Clrchen (named for any famous dance hall), using its vibrant green lacquer dial and gold hands and markings. And lastly there's the Kleen. The title means "child" in Berliner dialect, however this isn't any shy Tetra. The mint green lacquer dial is highlighted with gold hands and markers, in addition to a power reserve indicator at 12:30.
The indicator's background is gold having a green disc that suits the dial really showing just how much power remains. Unlike the relaxation of the Berlin collection, the Kleene houses the DUW 4301 movement rather of the Alpha caliber. The Cl?rchen and Nachtjall are listed at $2,320, the Goldeslse is $2,390, and also the Kleene is $2,920.
