Nomos Lambda 175 Years Watchmaking in Glashütte Limited Edition in Steel (Price, Pictures and Specifications)
The world’s finest timepieces have been produced in Glashütte since 1845. High time, in other words, for a new special edition of Lambda from the Nomos Atelier: Lambda—175 Years Watchmaking Glashütte, regulated according to chronometer standards. The limited-edition special model honours the rich tradition of Glashütte handcraft and combines it with high-tech precision—fine watchmaking, now presented in a stainless-steel case.
Reminiscent of a kinetic sculpture: Lambda in enamel-white, -black, and -blue—each colour is limited to 175 pieces.
Lambda combines fine watchmaking with modern, everyday wear in a slender stainless-steel case. All this makes Lambda an unmistakably unique item, a watch for life.
“Lovingly produced in Glashütte” is engraved by hand on the balance cock of in-house caliber DUW 1001, which is equipped with an exceptionally precise 84-hour power reserve complication. This is possible thanks to the particular design of the twin mainspring barrels.
Inside, complex, opulent mechanics are at work, while the dial is finely balanced, as if floating: Lambda is a kinetic work of art. The 84-hour power reserve indicator tells you exactly when Lambda requires winding again.
The elegant stainless-steel case of Lambda has a diameter of 40.5 mm and a height of only 7 mm. The lugs follow the curved form of the case and transform the watch into a sculpture in itself.
