Nomos Glashütte has introduced two new models in the fan-favorite Aqua series just in time for the summer. The two watches, based off of the Ahoi and Club designs, seamlessly fit into the rest of the colorful Aqua collection with a “siren white” dial, blue hands, and alternating red numerals and indices.
The new “siren white” dial option is a much bolder tone compared to the other dials (there are 16 watches in the Aqua range) and creates a striking impression on the wrist with the complementary white/gray strap option. Both new models, the Ahoi with its flat case and crown protector, and the Club with its rounded look, have their own distinct appeal. Both dials feature SuperLuminova for better legibility in the dark.
The Club is slightly more playful and youthful with its 37 mm diameter and polished case, and the 36 mm Ahoi feels more refined with its sharp angles and short, faceted lugs. Both watches are waterproof to 200 meters. Inside the watches is the Neomatik DUW 3001, the first automatic movement equipped with the NOMOS swing system. The movement is visible through an exhibition caseback in both models.
DUW 3001 (the initials stand for Deutsche Uhrenwerke) is one of the thinnest self-winding movements on the market today, measuring only 3.2 mm in height. Among its attributes are the Nomos swing system with a tempered blue balance spring; a bi-directional winding rotor; a stop-seconds mechanism; and a traditional Glashütte three-quarter mainplate. The surfaces of the movement are rhodium-plated and decorated with Glashütte ribbing and perlage. Screws are blued in the traditional manner. The mainspring barrel holds a power reserve of approximately 43 hours.
The price is not yet confirmed but you can expect it to land in a similar range to previous Aqua models (between $3,000 and $4,500). Both new additions to the Aqua series will be available for purchase from select retailers starting in July.
