In 2025, Glashütte celebrates a milestone that marks the inception of an era in horology—a history marked by artisanal excellence and precision.

NOMOS releases its Tangente 38 Date Limited Edition Collection to celebrate this momentous occasion. This exquisite series not only commemorates the illustrious history of Glashütte’s horological craftsmanship but also brings a vibrant burst of innovation to the fore with 31 captivating color variations.

Brinker’s Jewelers is proud to offer watch enthusiasts and collectors the opportunity to own a piece of this storied tradition, where each hand-wound, Chronometer-certified timepiece represents a fusion of heritage and modernity.

Celebrating 175 Years of Glashütte Watchmaking with NOMOS Tangente 38 Date

The town of Glashütte, situated in the eastern Ore Mountains region of Germany, has exhibited a commitment to high standards and quality since 1845 when Ferdinand Adolph Lange established its first watchmaking workshop. This heralded the start of an unparalleled success story that remains unrivaled by any other town worldwide.

NOMOS celebrated this story through its Tangente range, introduced over three decades ago as one way it honors tradition while paying tribute to modern design style. The Tangente 38 Date is a further development of the classic timepiece, enhanced with an exquisite color palette and upgraded features that make it one-of-a-kind. This exclusivity underscores the significance of the anniversary and Nomos’s respect for the artisanal legacy that has defined Glashütte for nearly two centuries.

The Tangente 38 Date Collection, with its distinctive dial variations and namesakes, is a visual masterpiece. Each model features an exquisite mix of hues that make it unique while staying faithful to the classical design philosophy NOMOS is renowned for.

This array of options ensures that there is a Tangente 38 Date to suit every style and occasion, from the classic elegance of traditional black and white dials to the personal flair of bright, muted, and pastel tones. Each color variant not only adds a distinct character to the watch but also allows for personal expression through the subtleties of color.

The names given to each color variation are as captivating as the shades they represent. While colors like “Flamingopink” and “Poporange” may be more recognizable, others such as “Nachtgesang,” evoke a sense of depth that echoes Nomos’s dedication to craftsmanship.

These names are not merely whimsical; they reflect the vibrant and unique color schemes of the watches, inviting wearers to form a personal connection with their timepiece. Whether drawn to the fiery zest of “Chili” or the warm glow of “Katzengold,” each name tells a story, turning the act of reading time into a more colorful and engaging experience.

The use of vibrant and diverse color variations adds a modern twist to the classic design, catering to discerning collectors and enthusiasts who seek a timepiece that stands out with bold and expressive hues.
