For over 30 years, the company has continuously amazed watch lovers over the globe with their simple yet sophisticated watches.
Among its amazing collections, the Nomos Glashütte Ludwig watch holds a special status in its watchmaking history. This watch is one of the very first Nomos watches released in 1991. Together with the other two first models Tangente and Orion, the first Nomos Ludwig was launched in 35 mm case size. These 35 mm watches were in a perfect size as a unisex watch for both men and women. They successfully captured the hearts of the simple watch lovers as well as the professional watch expects.
The Nomos Ludwig watch is considered one of the most elegant Nomos dress watches. It is the only model in the family that features the exclusive Roman numerals on the dial. Throughout years of development, Nomos Ludwig has expanded into a versatile collection that houses a handful of classic models in 5 case sizes from 33 mm to 41 mm.
The origin of the renowned German watch company, Nomos Glashütte, can be traced back to 1906. The original company was registered by Swiss businessman Guido Müller for importing and selling the Swiss watches.
The real watchmaking journey of the Nomos Glashuette watch brand only started in 1990 which was established by photographer Roland Schwertner. The company began to produce its own timepieces and gained immediate attention from the industry.
This German watch company has always been aiming to create minimalist timepieces with the best quality. With its first four watches released in 1991, the purist Bauhaus style provided a fresh wave to the market when luxurious complicated watches were more popular at the time. The exceptional Nomos watches have not only grabbed the hearts of many watch lovers from all over the world, but also gained high recognition from multiple huge design awards in the industry. Numerous Nomos watch models have received awards including the renowned Red Dot Awards, German Design Awards, iF Design Awards, etc. The continuous honour brought from these prizes has escalated the brand to a top-notch position in the watchmaking world.
The Nomos watch company has further reached to a higher level after it successfully developed its own in-house movement in 2005. Before its first movement, the brand had been using the Swiss-made movements from ETA for its watches. After coming up with the brand’s own movements, its development has greatly expanded from manual winding calibre to automatic movements. Its very first calibre was named Alpha and the following ones are called Beta, Gamma and Delta.
Throughout a few decades, the Nomos Glashutte watch family has grown to a versatile lineup that houses a wide range of models available in different styles, size and purposes. Despite the variations, all of the Nomos watches are well crafted under the brand’s minimalist principles.
One of the most sought-after models of the brand is the Nomos Glashütte Ludwig collection. It was one of the four first Nomos watches released in 1991. Although it was less discussed as compared to the Nomos Tangente model, it has still collected an enormous amount of admirers.
The Nomos Ludwig collection offers an impressive range of unique timepieces which are perfect as an everyday watch for every watch lover. Following the first 35 mm model, the Nomos Ludwig watch has grown to variants of 5 sizes ranging from 33 mm to 41 mm. Hence this Nomos dress watch is available not just limited to men but even the ladies who prefer simple watches. The whole structure of the watch is quite clean with a straightforward design and functions.
The German dress watch itself looks similar to the Tangente in a softer and elegant tone. The most notable difference between the two models is the numerals. The Nomos Ludwig model features the classic Roman numerals while the Tangente uses a combination of stick and Arabic numerals. Ludwig’s Roman numerals have further added a touch of classiness to the clean dial. The charm of the watch has been elevated by the balance of classic elements and modern designs.
These watches are the only Nomos watches in the entire family that displays the Roman numerals in its overall dial design. This is a delicate but significant detail that gives prominence to its elegance and classic vibe.
To create the purest form of minimalist classic, the bezel of this Nomos watch is crafted extremely sleek and thin. It is paired with an elegant leather strap with a quality pin buckle. The Nomos Ludwig watch is also equipped with a robust sapphire crystal on both of its top and case back. With a transparent sapphire case back, the wearer can easily admire the mechanism of its intricate in-house self-winding calibre Epsilon. With the remarkable in-house calibre, the Nomos Glashutte Ludwig watch offers a sub-dial to display small seconds on the 6 o’clock position on the dial.
Among the Nomo Ludwig watches, two of its family members are particularly popular. The first one is Nomos Ludwig 38 and another one is Nomos Ludwig 35. The Nomos Ludwig 38 watch in reference 235 features two case back options: a stainless steel closed case back and a transparent sapphire crystal glass case back. As said in the name, it is equipped with a 38 mm case.
