The Tangente Sport was consistently somewhat of an odd duck in the Nomos setup. The brand, for years, slanted toward simple dress watches. The moderately ongoing convergence of Nomos watches with expanded water obstruction, huge and sporty cases, and even hard wearing bracelets isn’t at all where the brand was at in 2003, when the Tangente Sport was first delivered. In those days, and through the product’s possible destruction in 2013, the Tangente Sport was actually the solitary watch in the index that could be seen as “sporty” by any means, with lumed dial elements and expanded water opposition. These little changes, however, to the vital watch in the Nomos arrangement, made it a top choice of the individuals who needed something simply a touch more easygoing. With the later presentation of watches like the Club, Ahoi, and the Metro (which got the Hodinkee treatment back in 2016), the Tangente Sport turned into a little excess, and it was casually dropped from the inventory.
But fanatics of the brand consistently recollected that it affectionately, and now Hodinkee and Nomos have restored it, in restricted release form, for 300 fortunate clients. The superstar with this watch (for what it’s worth, truly, with any watch) is the dial. This Tangente has been given a dull dark “lacquered” dial, with the now natural Arabic numerals and snailed auxiliary seconds register we’ve come to expect on this model. The tone and generally speaking treatment of the dial is a tribute to the first Tangente Sport (which was additionally dim), however the Hodinkee adaptation is a considerable amount more unique. The prior watch’s dial is sufficiently decent, however generally level. The restricted release has a nearly smoked impact that is very sensational, and undeniably more outwardly intriguing than its archetype. Normally, the little rectangular hour markers around dial’s border are filled with lume, similar to the hands, another gesture to the first Tangente Sport.
The instance of the restricted version Tangente Sport doesn’t sell out the watch’s dressy roots. It’s 36.5mm, and just 7.5mm thick. That’s close “ultra thin” watch an area, and Nomos watches in this broad size range have a Goldilocks nature of being perfect for nearly everybody, people the same. They are lightweight, staggeringly comfortable, and completed so that they in a real sense go with everything, from a full suit to significantly more easygoing end of the week wear. Dissimilar to the standard Tangente, this restricted version has been cleared for 100 meters of water obstruction. It’s no jumper, obviously, however you don’t need to child this one while you’re washing dishes, by the same token. Going just by size and list of capabilities, you could undoubtedly arrange the Tangente as a dress watch, however practically speaking it’s absolutely prepared as an easygoing or every day wear option.
As with the previous restricted version Metro that Hodinkee and Nomos released, the hand wound Alpha type has been chronometer ensured and taken cover behind a stainless steel caseback with the restricted release number engraved into it. Some will no uncertainty be baffled that the all around beautified development isn’t in plain view, however the absence of sapphire on the underside of the watch permits Nomos to hold the thickness down, making the wearing experience just somewhat better.
The Tangente Sport Limited Edition is available today in the Hodinkee look for $2,450. Each watch incorporates a woven textile tie, just as the aforementioned and still moderately new Nomos bracelet, which gives the watch a really sporty feel and look. Nomos
