Nomos 知识 小 百科

NOMOS, as a German-made watch, naturally has the characteristics common to German watches. The most obvious point is the mark ‘Made by Glashütte’. As a guarantee of quality, Glashütte is also used by brands such as NOMOS to promote product quality (similar to ‘Made in Sweden’). Of course, not every watch factory opened in Glashütte or registered there can print ‘Made by Glashütte’ on the watch. Only models that produce more than 50% of their parts locally are eligible to be called ‘Made in Glashütte’. NOMOS’s self-made movement has reached 70% ~ 95% of the famous 3/4 plywood. Due to its large area, it also guarantees the stable operation of the NOMOS watch.
Introduce some basic characteristics of NOMOS as a good watch.
    Some models of NOMOS use blue steel on the hands and screws. This is a special metal firing method. The fired objects are exquisitely elegant with a touch of elegant blue. Of course, the original intention was to prevent rust, but with the advancement of modern stainless steel technology, the original intention is no longer important.
Nivarox 1A spring:
    It is really uncertain whether it should be called spring or spring. Nivarox 1A is an alloy of iron, nickel, titanium, chromium, and beryllium. This material is commonly used in NOMOS models. (This material seems to have been widely used in various high-end models)
Stop seconds device:
    This is a very common feature. The pressure from the stop spring is used to balance the force transmitted from the escapement system, so that we can precisely adjust the timing.
Ruby bearings:
    NOMOS bearings not only play the role of bearings, but also contain a certain amount of lubricating oil, which can continuously leak out in small amounts to lubricate the movement.
Glashütte click:
    This mechanism protects the thorn wheel from being reversed during winding.
Incabloc shock protection:
     NOMOS uses a spring mechanism called Incabloc located above the escapement bar to protect the escapement mechanism from the impact of the watch due to falling.
Sapphire crystal:
    I believe everyone must be familiar with this technology. Its main component is tri-alumina, with a Vickers hardness of 1800-2200, second only to diamonds. NOMOS uses sapphire crystal for the surface and back. Unless you intentionally sand the surface with diamond and sand leather, it is difficult to damage.
Crazy Horse Strap:
    It is said that this leather was taken from a special part on the back of the horse and used only for high-end leather shoes and straps. It is thick, blister-resistant, textured, and rich in animal fats. These animal fats ensure that the watchband does not need oiling and maintenance and will not crack during its lifetime.
Electroplated dial:
     The dials of NOMOS are mostly silver-plated, which results in a smooth surface and effectively reduces the reflective intensity.
Date structure:
     The date display of NOMOS has its unique design. The date ring surrounds the movement instead of on the movement. This design ensures that the thickness of the watch is not increased, and there is no need to add more than 30 parts. The date function of NOMOS supports fast adjustment. Compared with models without changes, the power reserve is 3 hours less and 6 ruby ​​bearings are added to the structure. Now NOMOS has also released large date models, the date font is composed of letterpress printing.
Power reserve display mechanism:
    NOMOS completed the realization of this function with a small enough combination of parts, and it did not increase the thickness of the watch because of the increase of this function.
The reason why NOMOS is NOMOS: Bauhaus style design:
     ‘Bauhaus’ is a transliteration of German Bauhaus, originally the name of a school of arts and crafts established in Weimar, Germany in 1919. The founder and first principal of the school is the famous German modernist master of architecture, Gropius, who ingeniously translated the German Hausbau (house building) word into Bauhaus as the school name to show the school and traditional college Of traditional educational institutions. Another German architect, Mies van der Rohe, one of the masters of modernist architecture, was the third principal of the ‘Bauhaus’. The school moved to Dessau in 1925 and then to Berlin in 1933. It was closed down by the Nazi fascists and forced to disband. Although the ‘Bauhaus’ has only been in existence for only 14 years from its establishment to encountering ‘killing schools’, its theory and doctrine have had a wide-reaching and profound impact on the entire world, and the ripples it has stirred are still rippling.
    Bauhaus’s contribution to modern industrial design is huge, especially its design education has a profound impact. Its teaching method has become the basis of art education in many schools around the world. It has trained outstanding architects and designers to modern architecture And design has pushed to new heights. In contrast, the actual industrial products designed by the Bauhaus are not significant in terms of scope or quantity. During the overall design development of Germany, one of the world’s major industrial countries, Bauhaus products have not been developed. To a pivotal role. The influence of the Bauhaus lies not in its actual achievements but in its spirit. The Bauhaus thought was considered a classic of modernism for some time. But the limitations of the Bauhaus are gradually recognized, and its adverse effects on industrial design have been criticized. For example, the Bauhaus emphasized abstract geometric figures in the design in pursuit of new, industrial-era expressions. ‘Cube is God’, no matter what kind of product or material, it adopts geometric modeling, which embarks on the road of formalism and sometimes even breaks the function of the product. This shows that the meaning of ‘standard’ and ‘economy’ of the Bauhaus is more aesthetic, so the ‘function’ emphasized is also highly abstract. In addition, strict geometric shapes and the most demanding industrial materials make the product have a sense of indifference, lacking the human touch. The Bauhaus actively advocates design for the general public, but due to the abstract and esoteric design aesthetics of the Bauhaus, it can only be appreciated by a few intellectuals and outstanding individuals. Today, many Bauhaus products are still very expensive and can only be regarded as a symbol of aesthetic standards and social status, such as the Mies Barcelona chair is a typical example, selling for hundreds of dollars.
