EDITOR’S PICK: Minimalist style, maximum impact – the Nomos Minimatik
Time and Tide
If you came here looking for our expert opinion, expressed with the utmost of erudition, on the brand new Nomos Minimatik I must apologise in advance, because I’m going to spend a good chunk of this article talking about the least visible aspect of the watch. The fact is, the Minimatik is a big deal because of the DUW 3001 movement that powers it.
It’s Nomos’ second movement (and first auto) featuring their new completely in-house escapement, the impressive swing system that they introduced last year. It comes in at a super slim 3.2mm high, but also manages to be robust and reliable enough to meet chronometer standards. No easy feat for a mass production movement.
