Work It

A new of­fice ap­pro­pri­ate col­lec­tion from No­mos Glashütte

Sharp - - SHARP WATCH -

There are watches de­signed specif­i­cally for yachting, race car driv­ing, pilot­ing, trav­el­ling, and even for golf­ing. But Ger­man watch­maker No­mos Glashütte’s new At Work se­ries is the first col­lec­tion we know of de­vel­oped with the desk set in mind.

Revered for its min­i­mal­ist aes­thetic, No­mos is al­ready a favourite of the cre­ative class — the sub­ject of a per­sonal es­say by Gary Shteyn­gart in the New Yorker and were even name-checked on an episode of

Brook­lyn Nine Nine last year. Based on ex­ist­ing Tan­gente, Metro, Orion and Tetra mod­els, the At Work col­lec­tion’s com­bi­na­tion of case ma­te­ri­als and dial styles means you’ll stand out from your col­leagues sar­to­ri­ally. One thing that each model in the At Work se­ries has in com­mon is the in-house, au­to­matic DUW 3001 cal­i­bre.

But what’s really beau­ti­ful about the At Work col­lec­tion is how it plays with pro­por­tion. The new se­ries is made up of 14 vari­a­tions, each with a thin 39-mil­lime­tre case that sits smartly un­der the cuff of a suit jacket. The slimmed-down size also looks more el­e­gant on smaller wrists (which is nice when your dress code in­cludes T-shirts).
