NOMOS is proud to call Glashütte its home—a small town tucked away between forests and hills, south of Berlin and near Dresden, located in the eastern Ore Mountains. The timepieces made here are world-famous, and the watchmakers also count among the very best of their kind. Fine timepieces have been made in Glashütte for over 170 years; it has a tradition here that’s hard to find anywhere else in the world. Only the designation of a few products around the world is as strictly protected as watches from Glashütte. To emphasize the stringent quality standards of this unique town, the appellation “Glashütte” was placed under special protection.
Founded by Roland Schwertner in 1990, today NOMOS Glashütte is the largest manufacturer of mechanical timepieces in Germany: Nobody else produces more watches than this company. Maybe because there are so many special things about them.
