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 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"!
