A key factor for any successful business big or small is perseverance and consistency! Much is the case with German watch brand, Nomos Glashutte.
NOMOS Glashütte has received the iF Design Award for its Tangente Neomatik Nachtblau model, the sixth time in a row the company has received this award. The jury selected the new timepiece, which is part of the Neomatik series of automatic NOMOS watches, from over 5,500 products from 59 countries.

The Tangente Neomatik Nachtblau it is the second prize in short succession received by NOMOS. “And that’s something we’re particularly pleased about,” says Creative Director, Judith Borowski.
“After all, Tangente Neomatik Nachtblau is a new watch model, but the initial design that this model is based on is celebrating its 25th birthday this year.” In this Nachtblau version, featuring the ultra-thin automatic caliber DUW 3001, Tangente is “perhaps even a tiny tick more beautiful.”
The iF Award has been honoring outstanding achievements in design for over 60 years, and is one of the oldest and most respected prizes in the industry. Among the award winning “hallmarks of modernity” are numerous NOMOS watches: The Minimatik model received the gold award only last year, and the Metro received the prestigious honor in 2015.
In the preceding years, Ahoi (2014), Tangomat GMT Plus (2013), and Zürich (2012) have been awarded the prize as well. That makes this year’s iF Award the sixth time in a row for the Glashütte watchmaking company.
