NOMOS Tangente Neomatik Platinum Grey Watch Review

NOMOS Tangente Neomatik Platinum Grey Watch Review

The Glashutte-based watch manufacturer’s most emblematic watch is reawakened with a new dial colour and in-house automatic movement. Suitably named the NOMOS Tangente Neomatik Platinum Grey, the 2022 release is immediately recognisable between its timelessly contemporary predecessors with a shimmering, metallic grey dial.

It’s hard to believe that a watch manufacturer as well established as NOMOS Glashutte was only founded only in 1990. Two years later, the brand showcased its inaugural collection with four models named the Orion, Tetra, Ludwig and Tangente. Over the years, the latter has tempted those with a taste for minimalism offering some of the brand’s finest in-house movements, affordable price points and modern colour palettes. The design began as a simple 35mm stainless steel watch with a bright white dial and stylised Arabic numerals. The look was clean and simple, underscoring the meaning of understated luxury. More recently, the NOMOS Tangente has been tactfully reinterpreted with different complications, movements and dial colours, including faces finished in navy blue, champagne gold and grey. Now, the spectrum continues to grow with the new metallic grey face of the NOMOS Tangente Neomatik Platinum Grey watch.

As the defining feature of the NOMOS Tangente Neomatik Platinum Grey watch, let’s first take a look at the dial. In person, the face is striking offering a shimmering matte texture finished in a muted grey hue. On top, the dial presents rhodium-plated hands for the hours and minutes, a recessed and snailed small seconds counter also in grey and the signature Arabic numerals printed in black. Balancing out the small seconds is the NOMOS Glashutte logo at 12 o’clock which adds a small but noticeable amount of colour within the gold lettering to mark its Neomatik movement.

For the movement, the NOMOS Tangente Neomatik Platinum Grey watch opts for the brand’s in-house automatic winding DUW 3001, otherwise known as neomatik. The movement is remarkably slim at only 3.2mm in height, attesting to the slender nature of the case, and yet still stores 43 hours of power reserve and features the NOMOS swing system. This assortment, used in most of Nomos’ movements was originally introduced at Baselworld in 2014, and includes all the components of regulation, including the balance, hairspring, and escapement. The Calibre DUW 3001 is also nicely decorated with Glashutte stripes, blued screws and gold lettering.

There are four different variations of the NOMOS Tangente Neomatik Platinum Grey watch to choose from, all matching in their dial and movement but different slightly in their case specifications. The first two measure in at 35mm with one offering an exhibition case back and the second with a closed rear. The latter two come in larger at 39mm presenting the same case back options. As expected, the case of the NOMOS Tangente Neomatik Platinum Grey watch maintains the coin-shaped housing in stainless steel with a thin bezel, angled lugs and flat sapphire crystal glass with anti-reflective coating on the inner side. The 35mm model is water resistant to 30 metres while the larger 39mm reference is protected up to 50 metres.
