[2015 Basel] Nomos’s new watch series Metro last year won the German iF Design Award 2015. This model has not only won a lot of design awards (in addition, it also won German Design Award and Good Design Award), praise from all walks of life.
One year later, Nomos launched the second Metro Series Datum Metro 38 Datum. The diameter of the watch was enlarged from 37 mm to 38 mm. The minutes, minutes, seconds and date reinforce the minimalist style of the Metro watch.

Although the minimalist shape created by designer Mark Braun is highly respected, the Metro series also has a major feature that its movement will use the Nomos fully-made escapement Swing system, including the escapement fork, wheel and Gossamer, are all homemade.
Nomos has the ability to make its own escapement, of which the self-made hairspring (blue) is particularly important
Almost 90% of mechanical watches on the market use hairsprings provided by Nivarox under the Swatch Group. There are only a few watch factories that can make their own hairsprings. Therefore, the birth and application of Swing System is commendable, let alone a German system. Watch brands, not Swiss brands, complete such a crucial step.
The Metro 38 Datum is equipped with a DUW4101 hand-wound movement.
