What's Cool at BaselWorld?

Behold the Metro, from NOMOS Glashutte.

Now it is important to note that this is more than just a pretty face.  Under the hood there are some pretty dramatic developments - as described by NOMOS Glashutte -

Metro is the name of a wonderful new watch from NOMOS Glashütte—the first model
with an in-house built assortiment: the NOMOS swing system

For DUW 4401 ticks a little differently—with swing, for the first time in a NOMOS watch. The in-house designed and built swing system, known as assortiment in Switzerland, is the pace-setting part of the movement. It defines the accuracy, robustness, and the durability of a watch. There are only a few places around the world where this system is actually produced in-house, which is to say: turned, milled, and screwed. And now NOMOS in Glashütte is one of those places. 

So exciting times for the folks at NOMOS, and I will be posting further in-depth updates.  But for now, off to breakfast and the train to BaselWorld!
