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.
