Hodinkee has collaborated with Nomos Glashütte for a second time to launch The Nomos Club Date 38 Limited Edition Collection For Hodinkee.
The collection debuts today (December 8th) just in time for the holidays, and features four new dial colour variations of the out-of-production Nomos Club Date 38 Limited Edition .
We love these new colourful models and if you do too you’ll have to be quick, as these watches are super limited. The collection, which is inspired by nature found across Hodinkee’s headquarters in New York City, is available in Sienna Yellow, Pacific Blue, Reseda Green, and Terracotta Red, and is rendered in a clean matte finish with a matching date window at six o’clock. The large three-quarter plate that is traditional to Glashütte watchmaking is rhodium-plated before being finished with Nomos’ take on ribbing and perlage. The visible ratchet and crown wheels are decorated by hand with a special Glashütte sunburst finish, with the 38.5mm polished stainless-steel case coming in a perfectly round shape with smoothly integrated lugs.
Green-glowing Super-LumiNova is splashed on top of the Arabic numerals and inside of the sharp pencil-style hour and minute hand.
Scratch-proof sapphire crystals take prominent positions on the front and back side of each watch, protecting the dial and the manual-wind movement inside. Now, as I mentioned at the beginning, these are very limited. Each colour variant is limited to just 75 individually numbered watches, for a total of 300 pieces across the collection.
And that movement? It’s one of NOMOS’ best – because what else would we use if not the best? The DUW 4101 caliber comes fully equipped with NOMOS’ in-house, proprietary Swing System escapement, identifiable by the beautiful oscillating action of the tempered blue balance wheel. This is the first of our watch collaborations to include the Swing System escapement.
The decoration on each Nomos Club Date 38 Limited Edition movement is subtle and attractive – the large three-quarter plate that is traditional to Glashütte watchmaking is rhodium-plated before being finished with NOMOS’ take on ribbing and perlage. The visible ratchet and crown wheels are decorated, by hand, with a special Glashütte sunburst finish.
