Time for green and blue

Another opportunity to shine for the celebrated date caliber: Orion olive gold and midnight blue join the NOMOS Update series

GLASHÜTTE/BERLIN, OCTOBER 2018. Just this spring, NOMOS Glashütte released its iconic Tangente, Ludwig, and Orion models with an entirely new caliber and integrated date function—and so the Update series was born. One of those revised icons, Orion, is poised for another variation. Joining the white silver-plated dial are two new color versions: an elegant midnight blue and olive gold, a subtle shade of green with a touch of golden warmth.

As one of the brand’s earliest models, which formed the first family of NOMOS Glashütte watches in 1992, Orion can rightfully stake its claim as a classic timepiece. The model was long available exclusively with manual winding, since only a very thin movement could be housed in its elegantly domed stainless steel case. With the Update series, which introduced a new neomatik date caliber (DUW 6101), the still super-slender Orion grew to a diameter of 41 millimeters. Winding occurs with the smallest movements of the wrist, allowing the date and time to be displayed automatically.

The convenient date function on the ultra-thin neomatik date caliber in Orion Update models is easy to adjust in either direction. The date window, created specifically for this model, completes the sleek design. Domed sapphire glass above and below adds invisible strength to this fine NOMOS watch. The dial and case of Orion are curved, while the lugs are tailored to fit the wrist.

Now, the iconic timepiece is available in green and blue—two new highlights in the Update series. But neither the color nor the size of this hand-assembled timepiece could ever detract from its core appeal, which is precise, timeless elegance. Whether in silver white, midnight blue or olive gold, Orion is always an understated companion that brings subtle, everyday elegance to wearers and their wrists.
