2018 is the year of investing in yourself, and no better way to do that then to start with variety classic masterpieces watches displayed on HODINKEE.COM. Hodinkee is an online resource for watch enthusiasts that disregards pretense and notoriety, instead highlights watches that are pieces of art and why they should be appreciated.
One of my favorite pieces NOMOS Glashütte Tangente Neomatik 39 Silvercut Priced at $3,880, since its introduction in 1992, the Tangente has been the first watch that comes to mind when collectors think of NOMOS. The Tangente Neomatik 39 Silvercut retains many of the core elements that define the model – the Bauhaus-inspired numerals and the architectural steel case, for example – and reinterprets them to great effect. The 39.5mm case houses the Caliber DUW 3001, which is made in-house in Glashütte and carries the Swing System escapement. You can see the caliber at work through the sapphire caseback, and admire the attention to detail and slim automatic winding rotor. The Tangente Neomatik 39 Silvercut manages to take a well-known watch and breath new life into it through smart design changes and new technology. There’s a plethora of options so a consumer will unquestionably find the piece that fits their personal style.
