Wempe celebrates its long-time partnership with Nomos Glashütte by adding a special edition of the Nomos Tangente Neomatik 41 Update to the German-based retailer’s Signature Collection of limited editions.
The new Nomos Tangente Neomatik 41 Update Signature Collection Wempe.
This special version of the 40.5-mm steel watch features an ice blue dial, Arabic numerals, hour markers, and a navy blue date disk to match blued hours, minutes, and separate small seconds hands.
Those familiar with the Nomos Tangente Neomatik 41 Update might be aware of its unusual date display. Nomos displays the date around the perimeter of the dial using two markers that shift each day to frame the current date numeral.
This patented display is underscored by a second patented mechanism that allows the date to be corrected both forward and backward. While not a new feature in the watch world, its use in such a thin caliber is unique.
Nomos added this unique date display to the Tangente Neomatik in 2018, when the watch also received several updates that included regulation of the movement in six positions instead of the usual five, new decorative polishes, blued screws, and gold-plated engraving on the rotor.
Wempe will make the Tangente Neomatik 41 Update – Signature Collection, as a 200-piece limited edition, a fact that is engraved on the case back.
Wempe offers the watch with a dark blue textile strap with a pin buckle. And even though the watch is a special, limited edition of the Tangente neomatik 41 Update, Wempe has priced it in line with the ongoing model in the Nomos collection: $4,100.
