GLASHÜTTE, OCTOBER 2019.
A red twelve on the otherwise straightforward dial—the latest NOMOS model for Doctors Without Borders (MSF) also bears this unmistakable symbol that has come to be associated with watches that help provide aid. The cooperation between watchmaking company NOMOS Glashütte and this Nobel Prize-winning organization began in 2012. Tangomat für Ärzte ohne Grenzen Deutschland is the eleventh model that NOMOS Glashütte has produced in support of emergency aid. An imposing watch with a 38-millimeter diameter, it is also a classic model from the watchmaking company. Ticking within is the in-house built automatic caliber DUW 5001, while the metal bracelet wears with the utmost comfort and rounds off the robust appeal of this timepiece.
250 euros from each sale goes directly to Ärzte ohne Grenzen (the section of MSF in Germany). This is how a single watch can support the treatment of 1,470 children against malaria, secure enough anesthesia for ten operations, or provide 450 people with three months’ worth of vital medicine. Despite its fine metal bracelet, and even though it is a limited edition, this version of Tangomat is available for exactly the same price as the standard model, which comes with a leather strap.
So, better times for NOMOS wearers and for people who are in need: “When it comes to brand cooperations, it is very important for Doctors Without Borders that certain principles and values are mutual. The cooperation with NOMOS Glashütte is regarded with conviction by both sides,” says Florian Westphal, General Director for MSF Germany: “Together, NOMOS Glashütte and Doctors Without Borders are saving lives.”
This special-edition model, limited to 250 watches, is now available at select retailers across Europe.
