Ludwig translates classicism into today. Roman numerals, indexes, a particularly slender bezel, and lugs that are equally so—whether automatic or hand-wound, this model demonstrates what is so hard to find these days: poise.


Simply a classic

Ludwig is a watch that could hardly be more classic. The Roman numerals, the refined case, and unapologetically elegant lugs: This watch is order, proportion, and precision perfected; a model for the sophisticated wrist.

The softer side of the elegant and erudite Ludwig model: The case resembles a very flat pebble, while the lugs fit flush to the wrist.

Even with an automatic movement, Ludwig is as slender as a hand-wound watch—that’s thanks to DUW 3001, the tenth in-house NOMOS caliber.

The only NOMOS model to feature exclusively Roman numerals on its dial: Ludwig.

Depending on the size of the watch Ludwig comes with either a leather strap made of Horween Genuine Shell Cordovan or fine velour leather.

Highest values—quite automatically (and hand-wound too)

A great deal of tradition and craftsmanship—combined with a dash of high-tech, when its precision exceeds handcraft: that is NOMOS Glashütte. Alongside the most classic of all NOMOS calibers, the hand-wound Alpha, Ludwig also comes with a date indicator. And with the ultra-thin automatic movement with which we introduced the future: DUW 3001.
