Lambda Weißgold wins gold
While we were busy following the GPHG award ceremony, NOMOS Glashütte announced that in 2016, they will receive the German Design Award for their haute horlogerie timepiece, the Lambda Weißgold.
It is not the first time they get this prestigious award, and only this year, it is their 12th accolade, being added to the list of over 130 awards received since the brand was established.
Lambda, which has already received numerous awards, won over the jury of the German Design Council with its timeless elegance and watchmaking finesse.
The dial under the curved sapphire crystal glass is as delicate as an etching, held in place by an elegant case ring from 18kt white gold. The NOMOS in-house caliber DUW 1001 at its heart ensures outstanding accuracy, and is graced with screwed gold chatons, swan neck fine adjustment, fine sunbeam polishing, a hand-engraved balance cock with the following message: “Mit Liebe in Glashütte gefertigt” (lovingly produced in Glashütte), and further characteristics of Glashütte fine watchmaking.
Judith Borowski, head of design at NOMOS Glashütte:
Lambda is a watch model that we have a particular soft spot for… An immense amount of work went into it; a highly talented group of designers — Professor Axel Kufus and Michael Paul, as well as Simon Husslein from Büro Hannes Wettstein — spent nearly four years working with NOMOS’ in-house design team on the form of this exceptional timepiece.
I’m sure fans of this wonderful brand share my joy to see the effort of NOMOS recognized and rewarded. Besides the awards, the horological achievements, and great value, we should not forget that NOMOS is also a socially responsible brand. They are collaborating with Doctors Without Borders, and if you ever decide to buy a NOMOS, take a look at their limited edition watches created to support this noble cause.
