Always contemporary: Tangente was first, and now Metro is the second NOMOS icon to receive an update. The patented ring date shows what caliber DUW 6101 is capable of: The purpose-built date function can be set quickly and easily in both directions. This is thanks to the neomatik date mechanism, also patented, with bidirectional quick correction.

The Metro and Tangente Update models each combine two pioneering patents at once

With the ring date, Metro neomatik 41 Update is now markedly larger and still beautifully slender even with a diameter of just under 41 millimeters. Caliber DUW 6101 brings to the fore the concentrated watchmaking expertise at work behind the dial—yet the iconic designs of Tangente and Metro remain virtually unchanged.

Exclusive to NOMOS Glashütte: The unique, patented ring date, which circumscribes the dial. Two markers frame the current date—in neon orange for Metro, and for Tangente in red or luminescent green.

The new NOMOS caliber neomatik date—also known as DUW 6101—allows other NOMOS models to feature tailor-made date displays too.


The DUW 6101 caliber: Completely redesigned, highly precise, and created using modern production methods.

The new neomatik caliber: entirely redeveloped, from top to bottom, optimized for precision and longevity. The new date mechanism was designed to fit into a confined construction space. The result: a date watch for every day of a busy calendar.

The elegant neomatik date caliber (DUW 6101) is extremely slender: While the rotor, the date, and the mechanism itself would usually require a considerable amount of space, this movement measures a mere 3.6 millimeters in height—with maximum durability. As always at NOMOS Glashütte, this caliber is richly decorated with traditional polishes and special engravings.

In all NOMOS calibers, the date ring is placed around the movement. In neomatik date, this caliber is particularly large. The first neomatik caliber with a date mechanism, it remains wonderfully slender. The date display can be made even clearer, and is particularly legible.

An in-house innovation: neomatik date (DUW 6101) is powered by a proprietary escapement, the super precise NOMOS swing system. With this pacesetter—recognizable by the blue balance spring—the watchmaking company stands out in the industry with something singular and special.
