NOMOS Club probably (and unfortunately) garners some of the least adoration from press and collectors. Because it sits alongside watches like the Metro and the Weltzeit, whose designs and insides are all extraordinarily unique and challenging, the Club is sporty and appears–dare I say it–normal.More replica NOMOS watches.

When NOMOS makes a dial, it can feel as if there are acres of negative space. I intend that as a high compliment. What that means is, 38-40mm case sizes give way to modestly sized dials that, even with thick Arabic indexes, feel appropriately proportioned instead of crowded. NOMOS refers to the splash of color on the black hands and around the dial as red, but in person it appears more like a red orange. The use of color and the fuller Bauhaus-inspired Arabic numerals are the main casual aspects to the design.
Instead of wire lugs like on the Metro or the sharp geometric lugs of the Tangente, the Club’s 38.5mm (the Automat is 41.5mm) polished steel case features more regularly shaped lugs that enable the watch to sit comfortably on most wrists. Owing to the engineering inside the case, the watch is only 8.25mm thick (you read that correctly–I did not leave out a “1” before the “8”), which puts the finishing touches on this watch being understated and versatile. The added rotor adds about 1.5mm to the case thickness of the Automat.
NOMOS’s caliber Beta, a special 23-jewel manually wound movement. The added date mechanism isn’t an afterthought–it’s an innovation. The Automat features caliber Zeta, an automatic winding movement with the same date mechanism and a beautifully striped and skeletonized rotor.
