Doctors Without Borders saves lives—all over the world. Whether in Yemen, South Sudan or Bangladesh: the Nobel Prize-winning humanitarian organization fights against the consequences of epidemics, natural catastrophes, and displacement. We’re helping them to help: with two new limited edition Tangente models, for the first time with automatic winding and a bracelet.


Time for life

More than 8,000 watches have already been manufactured for the humanitarian organization—and now the cooperation continues. NOMOS Glashütte is once again supporting the work of Doctors Without Borders, this time with two automatic versions of the classic Tangente for Ärzte ohne Grenzen (the German section of Doctors Without Borders). For each of these special edition pieces sold, 250 EUR goes straight to providing emergency relief.

Tangente neomatik for Ärzte ohne Grenzen comes in two sizes, larger and smaller. Both versions have a red twelve, since red is the color of Doctors Without Borders—and of emergency aid.

“Ärzte ohne Grenzen” (“Doctors Without Borders”) is subtly inscribed below the six on the white silver-plated dial.

The special engraving on the back discloses that both versions are limited to just 250 pieces. Inside, neomatik caliber DUW 3001 keeps time.

Just as special: the new bracelet, manufactured exclusively for NOMOS Glashütte according to our designs and using traditional techniques.

» Valuable contributions of this kind allow us to work in approximately 70 countries worldwide, providing lifesaving medical assistance.« Florian Westphal, General Director of Ärzte ohne Grenzen

Emergency aid and a Nobel Prize
