Description

If the world is flat (as a dial), then Zürich is its center. This striking and multiple prizewinning automatic watch was designed by the Swiss industrial designer Hannes Wettstein for NOMOS Glashütte; with a slender bezel, striking lugs, and an excitingly complex case. With its white silver-plated dial, it has long been a classic.

Detail

Zürich’s indexes are applied by hand. The hands also require a great deal of effort to produce—they are facetted (so feature angular polishing) and rhodium-plated.

The elegant lugs feature a slight inward curve. And did you notice? The lug and bezel have a small space between them—which presents the case like a set diamond.

A tapered form that leads from the case to the crown—which is the crowning glory of this watch. Where else will you find such exquisitely formed grooves?
