Introducing the Nomos Orion 33 and 38 in Midnight Blue

Introducing the Nomos Orion 33 and 38 in Midnight Blue


Tasteful midnight blue and gold dials, moderate Bauhaus plan, an in-house development, long tasty carries, and executioner casework beginning at $1,920? That must be a Nomos.

Nomos presented the Orion in 1992 when the company was youthful, and the watch has been a foundation of their inventory from that point onward. These new midnight blue and gold models are either 33 or 38 millimeters across, both amazing dress-watch sizes. In any case, don’t let the number “33” deceive you; the Orion’s hauls are long to the point that this model will stretch around even my seven-inch wrist for a characteristic fit. The 38 offers a comparable fit, yet with a totally open dial for a more commanding presence.


The in-house, hand-wound development permits the 33-millimeter Orion to quantify simply 7.6 millimeters tall, while the 38 is simply 0.3 millimeters taller. These are uncommonly flimsy watches. These developments are dazzling to see through a back window, and the two sizes are accessible with either an open case back or a strong one. At the point when you look at the extensions, rubies, and blued screws of the 2.6-millimeter thick Caliber Alpha, you make certain to go for the one with a back crystal.

When I purchased my blue and gold Bell & Ross Aeornavale , Ilya kept in touch with me, “Gold is the best counterpart for blue dials,” and I couldn’t concur more. It’s an exquisite tone combo—the blue progressing the gold, the gold causing the blue to pop—and this colorway has a wide range of social reference focuses tracing all the way back to a period when indigo kicks the bucket and gold weaving were an indication of eminence, up through the gold-fastened blue coats of Britain’s 19th Century paddling clubs, to cutting edge Naval regalia. Blue and gold, it appears, is just bested by tuxedos and sequined dresses.

The 33-millimeter Orion ships on a velour cowhide beige tie that’s 17 millimeters across, and the 38 boats on a 19-millimeter dark Shell Cordovan tie sourced from Chicago’s Horween tannery. Both look extraordinary, and I would say with gold and blue watches, a wide range of lash colors work superbly, particularly those on the hotter side, similar to bronzed tans and light tans.

As with a lion’s share of Nomos’ contributions, the Orion just rates to 30 meters of water obstruction, so it’s not going accompany you on any wet and wild undertakings, yet for those searching for a tasteful, adaptable, dressy watch, it is almost difficult to blame the Orion in either size.

By swearing off a portion of the energetic bits of shading Nomos in known for, these blue and gold Orions do feel more formal and bubbly than the other accessible colorways. All things considered, they might be the ideal accompaniment to your vacation clothing, or maybe you’ll be staying quiet about one as a present for that uncommon individual in your life.

Both the 33-and 38-millimeter blue and gold Orions are accessible now, and costs start at $1,920. Nomos
