As the name implies, the limited-edition Nomos Orion 1989 Fall of the Berlin Wall celebrates the 25th anniversary of the fall of the wall that not only led to the reunification of Germany after more than four decades of Soviet occupation but actually marked the end of the communist era in Eastern and Central Europe.
Based on their earlier Zurich World Timer, the automatic Nomos for Wempe Weltzeit 5th Avenue features the same design of its dial, but swaps the original “Heimat” (“Home” or “Homeland” in German) inscription for “New York”. The reason for the change is simple: limited to just 100 numbered pieces, the watch was designed to be sold exclusively via Wempe New York Boutique located on Fifth Avenue, one of the busiest streets of Manhattan.
Remember the gorgeous NOMOS Glashuette Tangente series of hand-wound watches? Well, the independent German watchmaker that shares the neighborhood with such giants as Glashuette Original and A. Lange & Sohne, has just introduced the new ‘back to school’ NOMOS Glashuette Tangente Alma Mater designed together with the online retailer Wempe for (particularly wealthy) students.
