Of the brands making their Watches & Wonders debut in 2024, perhaps none will be more closely watched by Worn & Wound readers than NOMOS, long a favorite in the affordable independent space. After several years away from the international trade show scene following the demise of Baselworld, Nomos is back this year making their first trip to the Palexpo, and featuring a fun spin on a classic with new limited edition takes on the Tangente 38 Date.

With eye-catching color palettes–and equally eye-catching German names like “Flamingopink,” “Lemonbiscuit,” and “Sportbunt”–the new Tangente 38 Date models combine fan favorite design with an array of new colors the brand hopes will give wearers a chance to better express themselves through their watch. With a staggering 31 different colors, there are plenty of options for the watch enthusiast who wants something a little different from what you might typically see in the watch world.*
But what might be most eye-catching is the price: Unlike many of the limited edition watches being unveiled this week, the new NOMOS Tangente 38 Dates are genuinely affordable, and actually cheaper than the standard model. The regular run Tangente 38 Date can be found on the NOMOS website for $2,780. The limited edition watches will sell for $2,310, a move NOMOS sees as an investment in brand accessibility.

The LE Tangente 38 Date is still chronometer tested, still has a sapphire crystal and a sapphire crystal exhibition caseback, and all the design cues of the standard Tangente 38 Date that fans love. But, now cheaper and available in more color options. What’s not to love?

Like the name suggests, the Tangente 38 Date features a 38mm diameter case. (Well, 37.5mm according to NOMOS’ website, but we’ll round up.) It runs on a manually wound in-house movement, the DUW 4101, and comes on a fabric strap.

Each of the 31 color variations will be released in a limited run of 175, with each watch featuring the watch number, colorway name, and “175 Years Watchmaking” on the caseback. And to run the numbers so you don’t have to: that’s 5,425 total watches. NOMOS
