Description

Orion is reminiscent of other times—both the future and the past. Its lenticular form, when seen from the side, calls to mind a spaceship. Futuristic and yet still traditional, manual caliber Alpha—the very first NOMOS movement—is visible through the sapphire crystal glass back; featuring rubies, blued screws, Glashütte ribbing, sunburst decoration, and NOMOS perlage.
