The new Tetras are here - Ice Cream for watch fans!

Just like a kid listening for the ice cream man's truck, I have now gotten into the habit of waiting anxiously for news from Glashütte!  No, not from Lange, or Glashütte Original.  I am always waiting to hear about NOMOS!

Tetra weltweiß (world white), Tetra zartbitter (bittersweet), Tetra biskuit (scone), 
Tetra himmelblau (heavenly blue)—from left to right 

These are the new Tetras from NOMOS, and I must say that I LOVE the naming conventions that they come up with!  I got to check these out in person at BaselWorld this past March, but now they are ready for "prime time"!
