The NOMOS model Metro is bringing the Red Dot Award for product design to Glashütte once again—the fifth major prize in a row for the hand-wound watch
Glashütte, April 2015. Almost 5000 products from 56 countries, a distinguished jury, 38 experts from around the world—and a birthday: The Red Dot Award is not only celebrating the best in product design this year, but also its 60thanniversary as well.
And NOMOS Glashütte is celebrating too: The model Metro, created by the Berlin-based designer Mark Braun, has just received the Red Dot Award in the “Watches” category. It was not only the design of the hand-wound watch from Glashütte that attracted the admiration of the jury, but also its innovativeness, functionality, and sustainable production. “For me, our Metro is simply perfect,” says Judith Borowski, head of branding and design at NOMOS Glashütte. “We’re delighted with this watch—and its Red Dot Award.” With it, Metro is joining a group of eight NOMOS models that have received the Red Dot Award over the years.
