Some Rare Nomos Tangente Goodness

While going through my copy of the NOMOS Glashutte - The Great Universal ENCYCLOPAEDIA this morning, I looked back upon some of the great limited edition Nomos models of the past.  And one that caught my eye was the NOMOS Tangente Heisse Liebe - Wempe 100.  My trusty Google Translate lists this as "Hot Love", but in fairness, German is not one of my main languages so I welcome anyone out there to correct this ; )

You will notice the window between 12 o'clock and 2 o'clock.  Rather than the traditional power reserve indicator, you will note the imagery of hearts.  If I have understood the briefing correctly, the hearts "fill" with red as the power reserve is increased.  Definitely a fun way to display that function, somewhat reminiscent of Alain Silberstein.

Going by the info found at the VERY GOOD Club NOMOS site, this was limited to 100 pieces and was released in 2005.
