http://www.hodinkee.com/blog/introducing-lux-and-lambda-an-in-depth-look-at-two-entirely-new-gold-watches-from-nomos

 

The Lux is a simple time-only watch that utilizes the new-to-Nomos tonneau case shape. The case is rendered in white gold with wire lugs and you have a choice of either an all silvery white dial or a dial with silvery white registers and a light blue ground. The dimensions are 40.5mm by 36mm by 8.95mm thick, and a massive sapphire caseback shows off the manually-wound DUW 2002 movement, with 84 hour power reserve.

 

The Lambda retains a round shape familiar to Nomos lovers, but the case is a new shape and comes in at a larger than usual 42mm in both white and rose gold. It?s still thin at 8.9mm thick, and the dial space is dominated by a massive power reserve indicator at 12 o?clock, counting from 84 hours to 0 hours. The movement is manually wound too, so you?ll actually get to see this power reserve hand move over the course of a few days. It?s a cool execution that feels very much within the Nomos aesthetic.

 

Nomos has never gone down the same paths as others, and that is part of the attraction and charm of this brand. With the Lux and Lambda models, each of which is limited to just 100 pieces retailing between $17,800 (for the Lambda in rose gold) and $20,500 (for the Lux in white gold), it enters the world of contemporary fine watchmaking. But make no mistake, the stainless steel models that connoisseurs have come to know, love, and afford are destined to remain Nomos?s core business.

Je povzbudivé, že se objevil krásný nový kalibr s manuálním nátahem a k tomu s tří a půldenní rezervou. Jako negativum bohužel vidím průměr 32 mm, protože kvůli tomu se jeho použití v hodinkách s pouzdrem pod 40 mm asi nedočkáme. Nejspíš v Nomosu obětovali průměr kalibru jeho malé výšce (3.6 mm) a dvěma pérovníkům. V každém případě si za něj Nomos zaslouží uznání. A design modelu Lambda se myslím také vydařil.

Akorát mě trošku zaskočily ceny - jaká byla max. cena za modely Nomosu předtím? 

 

Max bylo 5410 CHF za Zürich Weltzeit, ale ty jsou ocelovy.

 

Ta cena za zlato je IMO adekvatni, kdyz to srovnas s ostatni produkci z Glashütte s gravirovanym mustkem, zlatyma satonama atd., tak jsi porad mnohem niz.

 

BTW jsou krasny, akorat ta rezerva nebude ukazovat svisle, tak jako na fotkach, coz je skoda.
