Introduction

Founded in 1990 following the collapse of the Berlin wall, like a handful of other German watchmakers, Nomos Glashutte has quickly grown into one of the most highly respected watchmakers in the world thanks to their exceptional value for money, eye for detail and steadfast dedication to the Bauhaus school of design. Combining all of those tenets into one watch, like so many of their other models, is the Tetra Neomatik 39 that we have here. Made of stainless steel and boasting a perfectly square case, the Tetra Neomatik 39’s diameter is instead 33mm, making it far more wearable than its name suggests. Just 7.3mm tall thanks to its cal. DUW 3001 movement, the Tetra Neomatik 39 emphasises everything Nomos is about, with its understated midnight blue dial lacking any exuberant details that could otherwise detract from its ability to tell the time. Featuring a single flourish thanks to its bright orange running seconds hand, the Tetra Neomatik 39 is a carefully crafted watch whose understated looks deceive the lengthy design process that goes into making a watch appear so effortless.

THE DIAL

Boasting a midnight blue dial, the Tetra Neomatik is an immediately refined timepiece with a timeless aesthetic as its dial evolves across the color spectrum in different lighting conditions.

THE CONSTRUCTION

While named the Tetra Neomatik 39, it is instead 33mm in width and height, meaning it is far more wearable than its name might suggest, with a 46mm diagonal diameter or 45.3mm lug-to-lug length.

Our Perspective

A wonderfully constructed timepiece that punches far above its weight class, Nomos has made a name for themselves as one of the best value-for-money manufacturers of recent times and the Tetra Neomatik 39 goes to show exactly why.
