I’ve since quite a while ago been an aficionado of the Nomos Metro assortment. Since the time the Metro Datum Gangsreserve previously dispatched route back in 2014, the Metro family has been home to some of Nomos’ more quirkier and fun loving plans. Certainly, the Metro may not be pretty much as famous as the Tangente, the watch most would promptly connect with the Glashütte firm, yet that underlying plan (graciousness of Berlin-based planner Mark Braun) has stood the trial of time, and it’s roused various emphasess in the years since. The most recent, and this is a watch I had the joy of finding in Germany at Nomos HQ, is the Metro rose gold 33, the littlest Metro model to date.

The size is equipped towards a female customer base, yet it’s not expressly gendered in the way most brands sex their watches. It’s essentially more modest, delivered in a rose gold case, and fitted with an excited white (silver-plated) dial set apart with dark hour plots. I gave it a shot, and keeping in mind that I felt it was at last excessively little for me, I can in any case see this watch working for courteous fellows with more modest wrists than mine.
This isn’t the first run through Nomos has utilized rose gold in the Metro line. Review in 2017 the Metro rose gold neomatik 39, which appeared as a feature of the brand’s At Work arrangement . This new, more modest Metro is essentially an augmentation of that. While more iterative than game changing, it’s a compelling item, and with the utilization of valuable metal it drives the watch into a more extravagance situated position.
Powering the watch is Nomos’ Alpha type, a longstanding hand-cranker from the German assembling. You don’t get Nomos’ in-house Swing System here, yet that likewise implies that the watch hits a more forceful value point at $7,200, which makes it the most moderate valuable metal Nomos to date.
The watch comes on a calfskin tie with fast delivery springs, the last being somewhat of a need because of the wire carries, which measure 16mm across. It’s an attractive blending, and it plays into the glow of the case and dial. I figure this one would likewise look extraordinary on naval force shell cordovan. Nomos
