NOMOS Glashütte caused a storm in the industry once again with this technological sensation. Since at only 3.2 millimeters in height, this proprietary caliber called DUW 3001 is incredibly thin and yet highly precise; a combination that was either impossible or cost a fortune until now.
And the efficiency of caliber was also improved to a significant extent: It is now at 94.2 percent, an achievement that experts find almost unbelievable—because it means that friction loss is down to 5.8 percent. This makes the caliber extraordinarily efficient as well; 20 percent is typical. In this new NOMOS motor there is some high tech, but handcraft first and foremost.
Down to its core: The NOMOS swing system, our proprietary escapement, also known as a caliber’s heart, sets the right pace with the highest precision. And of course there are many typical characteristics from Glashütte in this movement, which denote its rich heritage: the three-quarter plate, ribbed polishing, tempered blue screws, and so on.
