NOMOS GLASHÜTTE’S NEW LUDWIG CELEBRATES ANNIVERSARY OF GERMAN DEMOCRACY

by | May 9, 2024 | Featured, Watches

Luxury watch maker Nomos Glashütte is marking the 75th anniversary of German Basic Law with a limited edition version of its classic Ludwig model in cooperation with Nomos Verlag – 75 Jahre Grundgesetz. It’s a special edition in six versions – limited to 75 pieces each. “Nomos” means “law”, so the watchmaker has a deeper reason for wanting to celebrate the German constitution.

“Our company as it exists today was only made possible by the fall of the Berlin Wall,” said Nomos managing director Judith Borowski. “It also brought democracy to East Germany. The new Nomos watch, this limited-edition Ludwig – 75 Jahre Grundgesetz, is in my view a beautiful statement for the constitution and for freedom, democracy, and legal certainty.”

The special model in six sizes and versions features a paragraph sign on the dial at 6 o’clock, in gold on the automatic models and in black on the hand-wound watches. Below it is a reference to the historic milestone: “75 Jahre Grundgesetz”. To complete it, Article 1, paragraph 1 of the German Basic Law is engraved on the bezel of the sapphire crystal case back: “Die Würde des Menschen ist unantastbar.” (Human dignity is inviolable.)

The in-house movements are regulated according to chronometer values. Models with diameters of 32.8, 35, and 37.5 millimeters contain the hand-wound Alpha caliber, while the automatic watches with diameters of 36 and 38.5 millimeters are powered by the automatic caliber DUW 3001. The largest model, Ludwig neomatik 41 date – 75 Jahre Grundgesetz at 40.5 millimeters in diameter, contains DUW 6101 with a patented date mechanism.

Prices range from $2570 CAD to $5370 CAD. To buy, head to the Nomos Glashütte website.
