This is NOMOS Glashütte: Tangente, the round watch with the many right angles, embodies the Glashütte watchmaking company like no other. Tangente, our prizewinning classic for the wrist, has been a continuous bestseller for 25 years.


The round watch with the many right angles

Tangente is confident in its style, harmonious, straightforward—and an inspiration to many. This watch is almost a logo for our brand. Its design and quality have been lauded with numerous prizes.

Bauhaus? Yes, that too. Since Tangente’s design, as the first NOMOS watch, represents the principles of form follows function. And this has made it a design classic.

Clear and simple, a classic of its own: the famous typography of the numbers.

Angular lugs, entirely flat sapphire crystal glass. And a caliber within that gives Tangente its slender profile and perfect proportions—it always wears like a hand-wound watch, even when Tangente is equipped with an automatic movement.

Tangente loves classic modernity. And collects love letters and design prizes, as well as other things.

Midnight blue, gold, gray, champagne—Tangente doesn’t just wear black and white, but it does always look good!

Wrists come in many sizes. And so does Tangente—with diameters of 33 to 39 millimeters.
