Watch hands move in a circle, and yet this watch is square. This shape simply looks better on some wrists. Tetra is a fine Glashütte timepiece: straightforward, clear, perhaps rather independent-minded.


Squaring the circle

The square version of Tangente—although its typography is only similar, not identical. The numerals come across a tick more modern as they are sans-serif.

Tetra is incredibly thin for a mechanical watch and its lugs—which are the metal bars the strap is attached to—are almost delicate. That’s why there are two on each side. It’s an optical illusion, as it allows the strap to be made smaller.

Beautiful, slender, and still robust. Tetra is all of this and more— also in the neomatik version.

Tetra appears a little more austere than the other NOMOS models. Perhaps that’s why our designers love to play with its dial—such as here: the Symphony series.

It’s available in a classic shade of white. But Tetra’s dial also comes in colors, such as matcha green, azure blue and grenadine red. For example.

Manually wound or automatic—Tetra always stays super slender and highly precise.

The prizes have been stacking up—Tetra wins you over with style, charm, and substance. And has done so for a quarter of a century.

Outstanding qualities that appeal—hand-wound or entirely automatic

A great deal of tradition and craftsmanship—combined with high-tech, where it serves precision: that is NOMOS Glashütte. Alongside the most classic of all the NOMOS movements, the hand-wound Alpha caliber, Tetra is also available with manual winding and a power reserve indicator. As well, of course, with the ultra-thin automatic caliber DUW 3001. Our movement from the future—that’s already here.
