NOMOS Glashütte celebrates The Hour Glass’ 40th Anniversary
with not one but four Limited Editions. Four new special edition Tangente with ancient scripts and “Little Red Dot” on the dials to celebrate 200 years since Singapore was founded in 1819.
More than any other watch at NOMOS Glashütte, Tangente has earned the title “design classic.” It is a timepiece that has been a bestseller since its introduction over a quarter of a century ago. And now this iconic timepiece is available in four new limited edition versions of Tangente neomatik 39 for The Hour Glass.
Numerals in Chinese oracle bone script, the earliest known form of Chinese writing, grace the dials of the salmon- and silver-colored versions.
The ruthenium and midnight blue watches feature Hindu-Arabic numerals, which has become the most commonly used numeral system in the world.
Together, these two ancient scripts reflect the diversity of the bustling city state. All four watch versions also pay tribute to Singapore with a “Little Red Dot” at six o’clock, celebrating the global reach of the city—despite its relatively small size.
At their hearts, the automatic caliber DUW 3001 is setting new standards. Exceptionally slender, highly precise, and equipped with the NOMOS swing system, this neomatik caliber allows these limited edition Tangente models to remain wonderfully elegant.
NOMOS CEO Uwe Ahrendt
“Our partnership with The Hour Glass is growing from strength to strength. I’m delighted to collaborate on these four limited edition versions of our most iconic model with The Hour Glass, and warmly congratulate our retailer in Singapore on its 40th anniversary. Launching the third edition of the Red Dot series in conjunction with The Hour Glass’s celebrations marks our commendation on The Hour Glass’s great achievements and our confidence that they will continue to flourish in the years to come.”
The Tangente model is masterpiece of straightforwardness, handcrafted in Glashütte, Germany. The fact that the new versions of this timepiece are exclusive to Singapore makes them even more appealing; there are only 200 in total of these limited edition watches, available online and at The Hour Glass and Watches of Switzerland stores.
