Seen from the outside, mechanical watches have not changed a lot in the past 200 years—at their heart lies a perfect arrangement of gears, screws, springs, pinions, and levers. Yet we keep researching and perfecting our craft, always looking for the next breakthrough.

Because of course there is always something to be explored: new materials, surfaces, finishing techniques, count variations. This is how today’s watch calibers can be a great deal better than 200 years ago.

More inventions, more patents

In 2014 NOMOS Glashütte celebrated its independence day: with the NOMOS swing system—our in-house built escapement that sent shockwaves through the industry. This tiny system of parts is lighter than a feather, and yet it made for a huge technical sensation.

The long process behind a sensation

DUW 3001 and DUW 6101

neomatik: Motors of the next generation

Shortly after the arrival of the NOMOS swing system, it was the next in-house sensation: the first neomatik caliber, DUW 3001. Flatter, finer, more elegant than everything that had come before, it set a new standard for automatic movements. With the second caliber, DUW 6101, NOMOS Glashütte is taking things a step further—with a date that can be quickly and easily set forwards or backwards.

DUW 3001: Incredibly thin, incredibly innovative. With a timepiece of this caliber, your watch expertise is clear. Since this neomatik caliber is significantly thinner than everything else in the world of watchmaking that self-winds and is produced in large-scale series.

Let's get down to details: DUW 3001

DUW 6101: neomatik date, a high-end mechanism from Glashütte. This neomatik caliber is not only very large but, at only 3.6 millimeters in height, also exeptionally slender. The date is located exactly where it should be—at the edge of the dial. The fact that it can be set forwards or backwards quickly and easily? Just one of many user-friendly features.
