neomatik: new technology for automatic watches
Completely new automatic calibers
neomatik, new automatic, is the name of a special series of mechanical watch movements with which NOMOS Glashütte achieved what was considered impossible for so many decades. But what exactly is behind the name?
GLASHÜTTE, JULY 2021. Automatic watches, but slender and elegant. Extremely precise, produced in series, and attractively priced. Unthinkable? At one time, yes. Until now, it didn’t exist, it simply couldn’t be done. And yet today, the neomatik series from NOMOS Glashütte offers all of this.
“Anyone in the know will tell you that with all these attributes, neomatik technology offers customers wristwatches that simply haven’t existed before,” explains Uwe Ahrendt, engineer and CEO of NOMOS Glashütte. “This new automatic technology is truly pioneering.” Wearing it on the wrist is “an indication of competence, the sign of a wise investment.”
To date, the neomatik series by NOMOS comprises two caliber types: DUW 3001 without date and DUW 6101 with a date mechanism. Both movements are extraordinarily slender. The NOMOS swing system ensures the very best accuracy; it is the watchmaking company’s proprietary escapement and is recognizable by its tempered blue balance spring. In addition to this incredibly precise pacesetter, a range of Glashütte specialties—such as the three-quarter plate, Glashütte ribbing, tempered blue screws—embody the kind of craftsmanship and engineering skill native to Glashütte. Because of course: Handcraft is central to the process even when it comes to producing high-end calibers such as these. Assembly, dozens of stages of quality assurance and adjustment, fine polishing and perlage: Most of the work is done by hand, as it always has been in the 175-year-old Glashütte watchmaking tradition. And this is how beautiful investments are created, watches for life.
