NOMOS Minimatik Review
The NOMOS Minimatik is a timepiece from the German luxury watch brand, NOMOS Glashütte. More slender and more elegant than before, this watch is a design by Simon Husslein. It is with this watch that the German brand introduced its high-end caliber, DUW 3001. By incorporating unique craftsmanship, the latest technology, and some of the best designs from Glashütte, the brand has come up with a classic timepiece. With its curves, this wonderfully proportioned timepiece sits perfectly on the wrist. The watch was also able to win some of the most important design prizes shortly after being released to the public.
Minimatik models are unique as they come with different designs. The collection has three different dial versions. These dial colors range from midnight blue, champagne to white silver-plated. NOMOS Glashütte has done what we can say is next to impossible. The German brand has produced a proprietary escapement, something almost no other company in the world has done. Through this proprietary escapement, also known as the NOMOS Swing System, the company has been able to achieve its independence in the world of fine watchmaking. All of the Minimatik models have the NOMOS Swing system, which guarantees the watch's accuracy and precision.
The case construction of the Minimatik timepieces is tripartite. Starting with a narrow bezel, the flanks are designed to be three-dimensional. The lugs seamlessly integrate into the case. Another creative feature is how the curved sapphire crystal glass flows into the case in a single sweep. This model has a tapered case form, and the timepiece gently comes together from top to bottom, giving it an elegant appearance. The dial design is inspired by the use of numerals every two hours. There is a small dot between each digit. One more unique feature is the decentralized seconds' hand, which is generously proportioned and distinct. With the Minimatik collection, the German brand has successfully interpreted such a classic form in a contemporary manner while remaining true to what is typically NOMOS.
NOMOS Minimatik Champagner
NOMOS Minimatik Champagner (Ref. 1204), is one of the three unique models from this collection. This watch has a stainless steel casing and a domed sapphire crystal glass. The automatic caliber DUW 3001 can be seen running underneath the tripartite sapphire crystal glass back. With a diameter of 35.5mm, the watch is slender and beautiful on the wrist.
