    New Nomos Metro Datum 38 - Basel 2015

    Nomos has just announced a new model, that is a re-development of last years Metro.

    New size is 38mm and gone is the power reserve, other than that, not much has changed.

    No wonder they announced it early, don't think it will make much of a splash at the event.

    If only they would use a movement that fits cases larger than 34mm...

    It's weird; the 38mm Orion casebase looks great



    Whereas this metro...

    I also have a problem with the placement of the sub-seconds. Way too close to the centre. But that probably is a pet peeve of mine...

    Maybe because the Orion is less of a single band?

    Agreed. Tiny movement for the case size syndrome in action with this watch!

    Agree with Martin. The Sub-seconds looks out of balance on the dial to me too.
