Tangente neomatik is the “Classic Watch of the Year 2017”


The world’s biggest watch fair started off with a bang for Nomos Glashütte. On the first day of Baselworld, Tangente neomatik won the top prize in the “Watch of the Year” awards: Readers of the German publications “Welt am Sonntag” and “Armbanduhren” chose the bestseller from Glashütte for “Classic Watch of the Year 2017.”

And by quite a distance: Tangente neomatik received around twice as many votes as the second-placed watch from one of the neighbors in Glashütte, A. Lange & Söhne. In total, there were 50 watches from all price classes in the running. Nomos CEO Uwe Ahrendt accepted the award in Basel and thanked everyone who voted: “We are delighted. Tangente was and is our first watch, and yet it still moves with the times—just like our watchmaking company: Within this watch ticks our newest movement, the ultra-thin automatic caliber DUW 3001.” This was the 21st “Watch of the Year” ceremony. Nomos Glashütte has won 20 times.
