Glashütte, September 2019
Introducing a brand-new addition to the Metro collection from NOMOS Glashütte: Metro rose gold 33. At just 33 millimeters in diameter, this watch is also the smallest Metro model to date. Its rose gold hands harmonize beautifully with the gray hour markers and subtle violet minute markers. Inside, the hand-wound Alpha caliber from NOMOS Glashütte sets the pace. The beige velour leather strap and rose gold winged clasp add the finishing touch.
This watch celebrates the materiality of gold, combining it with the contemporary design details of the strap and clasp,” its designer Mark Braun explains. “It has a feminine aspect, and more warmth. With Metro rose gold 33, we are using precious metal in a modern way. ”
The first Metro model from NOMOS Glashütte was unveiled in 2014, and this watch has been winning design awards ever since. Its rounded case, slender wire lugs, tapered hands, and the delicate diamond knurling on its crown combine to create an aesthetic reminiscent of precision tools. There are hand-wound and automatic versions, larger and smaller, with and without complications. But nearly all of them feature a stainless steel case.
This new release, Metro rose gold 33, is only the second Metro from NOMOS Glashütte with an 18 kt rose gold case: In 2017, Metro rose gold neomatik 39 was introduced as part of the At Work series of elegant wristwear for the office. It featured a rose gold case, coordinating beautifully with the muted gray accents on the dial and the brown leather strap crafted from Horween Genuine Shell Cordovan. Powered by the neomatik caliber DUW 3001, this automatic version of Metro measures a sizeable 39 millimeters in diameter—making it ideal for larger wrists.
With the latest Metro model, however, designer Mark Braun had something else in mind: “We wanted to reach all watch wearers—and a smaller Metro in gold is the logical next step.”
Metro rose gold 33 shows just what is possible with this elegant design. And is perfect for all those looking for a sophisticated timepiece in gold, just a tick smaller.
Metro rose gold 33 is available at selected retailers from September.
