The red 12 references the emergency aid organization, which has fought for 50 years against the consequences of epidemics, natural disasters, and forced migration. Red is the color of Doctors Without Borders—and of emergency aid. With this special edition model, limited to 2,021 pieces, NOMOS Glashütte is paying tribute to the organization and is helping them to help.
More Tangente—just under three millimeters, to be precise, in comparison to the classic 35-millimeter version. The angular case appears even more slender.
