In Berlin, by the Wall...

There stood four beautiful new NOMOS Tetras, 29.5 mm tall ; )

This is the brand-spanking-new Berlin Tetra set from NOMOS Glashutte.

Four different versions are available, three with α (Alpha)—NOMOS caliber with manual winding movement, and a fourth with the DUW 4301—NOMOS caliber with power reserve indicator.

First up is the Tetra Nachtijall -

Dark blue's not your thing?  Don't worry - there is also the Clärchen.  Like the Nachtijall
it has a beautiful lacquered dial.

Or perhaps you are after something with a wee bit more restraint "palette-wise"?  The Goldelse 
is also an option, with a galvanized dial.

But perhaps you are after something with an added feature - like a power reserve indicator?

While the folks at NOMOS Glashutte refer to this as turquoise in color, I find it to be pleasantly reminiscent of pistachio.
