Everything's Rosé: NOMOS Glasshutte Orion 33 Rosé.
As has become something of an annual tradition, NOMOS Glashütte has revealed a new model just in time for Christmas. This year it’s an addition to the Orion collection: the Orion 33 Rosé.
The youngest member of the 33 family bears a striking similarity to the original Orion with its gently curved case and fine stainless steel lunette. But it’s smaller and appears even flatter than other hand-wound watches from NOMOS Glashütte
The watch has a stainless steel case with domed sapphire crystal, and a galvanised silver-plated rosé dial. As the name suggests, at 33 mm, it is especially becoming on delicate wrists. The light rosé hue of the dial goes with velvet or silk, cord or tweed.
The hands and indexes are gold coloured and diamond polished. The domed sapphire crystal case back reveals the α (Alpha) in-house calibre movement with manual winding. The watch comes on a beige velour leather strap.
The clean, elegant dial is inspired by the work of students of the Deutsche Uhrmacherschule (German watchmakers’ school) in Glashütte.
The new model will be available for £1,320 from authorised watch retailers in the UK and at www.nomos-store.com
