Nomos Facts, True or False?

Nomos produces around 20,000 units a year Sounds likely
When Nomos first started out they shared their telephone Line with a fast food resturant True
Nomos was the name of a short lived Pocket watch manufaturer that closed its doors in 1910 True, I think
In 2005 Nomos employed just 60 people True
Nomos is the forth biggest selling brand in Wempes stores Quite likely
Nomos once produced an In house tourbillon True
Nomos have won awards for its watch designs for 14 out of the past 15 years Deserved if true
The cost of developing its in house movement is around 20 million euros Sounds steep!
The Nomos Orion was named after the CEO's dog. Sounds false
Nomos are in the process of updating their collection with a chronograph Wouldn't surprise me
Nomos watches must be accurate to a minute a week with no minus figures Mine is!.

Two weeks in and...

This watch is phenomenal! :D :D :D

Still running from 1st setting, and reading +1 today, with just a bit of positional variation when not being worn. It hasn't been out either way by more than 4 sec.

Plus, it's gorgeous to look at and wear! I'm happy! :thumbup: :thumbup:

That's awesome! I have a feeling all nomos have similar accuracy results based on what I've read.

Oh and FYI u were right; all the facts above are true - with exception to the dog one which I put in there as a red herring.


The cost of developing its in house movement is around 20 million euros - should have been 'Movements'

I may just get my orion in the summer, feels like Nomos' year!
I miss all the great things that may never be.
