SOLD OUT: NOMOS LUX Ref. 942 TONNEAU 38.5 x 34mm White Gold Box Papers
WHY THIS WATCH
Here's a surprise: Nomos has produced a high-end watch in a noble metal. Nomos has always excelled at providing simple, Bauhaus-inspired watches with great mechanical movements. While the Lux is new to the Nomos line, the design formula is the same one Nomos has been following for the last 22 years.
At first glance, the Lux is a simple, time-only model that utilizes a new Tonneau case shape. The case is all white gold, with beautiful wire lugs, and case dimensions of 40mm by 36mm by 9mm. The real showstopper is when you flip the watch over and get a view of the stunning, manually wound caliber DUW 2002 (more on that later). Dial side we have a gorgeous, Bauhaus-inspired central dial, with a lighter color backdrop. The backdrop really frames the central dial and sub-seconds hand in a way only Nomos can pull off.
The real highlight of this watch is the in-house calibre DUW 2002. This is a full in house, 23 jewel hand would movement with 84 hours of power reserve. The first thing that hits your eye when you flip the watch over is the sunburst pattern on the three-quarter plate. This "fine sunbeam polish", is like a traditional Cotes De Geneve pattern on steroids. Peering deeper into the movement we see that Nomos didn't pull any punches. Beveled edges, thermally blued screws, and gold chatons, abound. To top it off we have an engraved balance cock, with "Lovingly produced in Glashutte" etched by hand. This movement is stunning to behold and wind, and truly offers the best of German watchmaking.
On the wrist, this watch does what Nomos does best - effortless, pretentious free elegance. The older I get, the more attracted I become to simple, hassle free dials. The white gold adds a nice heft to the watch, allowing it to sit flat on your wrist without jumping around, and without being too heavy. In terms of fit, I would say this watch fits like a 39mm-40mm watch. The movement is a joy to behold and wind, so much so that I wish the power reserve duration was a bit shorter than half a week. The shell cordovan strap is perfectly proportioned, with a nice taper and a very nicely designed buckle.
THE LITTLE DETAILS
This watch was purchased brand new in 2021 and was worn very sparingly by its owner. I would say the case is around 95%. The watch comes with the original cordovan strap (around 8/10) with the factory buckle. The watch comes with a box and papers, including a warranty card.
