The Bauhaus movement will turn 100 years old in 2019. To celebrate the occasion, NOMOS’ iconic Tangente model is now available as a special edition: three different colors times three, each limited to 100 pieces—and with a 100th anniversary discount. Inspired by the color theory of the design school, these dials feature a ring of blue, yellow, or red on a background the color of sketch paper.
There are three sizes: 33, 35, or 38 millimeters. The hands of all the Tangente models trace a circle of blue, yellow, or red on a background the color of sketch paper. The NOMOS designers have taken a look at the sketchbooks of the Bauhaus masters and made the basic principle of a watch visible. Namely that time is depicted by a circle. Nothing else.
Clear lines, square angles, the famous typography: At NOMOS Glashütte, form always follows function—including here, in this limited edition. This Bauhaus special edition also represents “Made in Germany” at its best—and Bauhaus for today; straightforward, functional, and simply beautiful. The backs of the new models are crafted from stainless steel and graced by a special engraving that refers to the centenary of Bauhaus, as well as limited edition numbering: Tangente Sondermodell – ein Jahrhundert Bauhaus, 1/100.
