nomos neomatik siren white


With its two new Ahoi and Club watches joining the Aqua collection, the brand from Saxony carries us away to white sandy beaches beside crystal-clear waters.

Generally, when summer comes, we are drawn to lightness, coolness and bright pastel colours. Dark, sombre outfits are relegated to the back of the wardrobe! And we opt for tones to match our new tan, echoing the sun’s rays, and for the lucky ones, the crystal-clear waters of the sea. So to give summer a fitting welcome, Nomos has released two new watches with an immaculate white hue to join the Aqua collection: the Ahoi Neomatik and Club Neomatik.

The ultra-slim calibre (just 3.2mm thick) drives the hours, minutes and seconds, while providing a power reserve of 43 hours.

These metal settings are clearly meant to be worn in a watery environment, whether on a boat or beside the swimming pool, since they are watertight down to 200m.

The hour rim on the Ahoi Neomatik has very slender, almost ethereal elements, embodied by long Arabic numerals interspersed with stick-shaped hour markers, and all coloured red. The minimalist minute track has markers coated in light grey Super-LumiNova®. As for the running seconds counter at 6 o’clock, it houses a small second hand moving around a scale with blue Arabic figures. For the Club Neomatik, the information on the dial is more visible, such as the curved Arabic numerals and the hour markers coated in green-glowing red Super-LumiNova® and blue figures on the minute track.

To underline the summer spirit of the watches, Nomos has designed a strap made of light-grey French-made fabric, with water-resistant material that will dry in the twinkling of an eye.

Price: 2,500 EUR (Club model) – 3,240 EUR (Ahoi model)
