The purist among the NOMOS Metro versions: extra large and pared down, with a clear, refined dial, designed by Mark Braun. A hand-wound watch that concentrates on the important details and gives time plenty of space—while its design remains a little ahead of the times. With delicate hands and minute markers on the white silver-plated dial perfect down to the dot, this is simply a wonderful watch.
Prizes and awards

Metro makes its presence felt—here a tick bigger, with a 38.5-millimeter diameter. Its slender bezel gives the dial space and lets the watch appear even larger.
